A Lady, Casey Kasem And A Giveaway: Boyfriend Shorts, Graphic Tee And Turquoise Sandals

     Sometimes I buy graphic tees just because I think they’re cool. Other times, they speak to me…and this one shouted “Hey there, you need me in your life!” Yes. Yes, I do graphic tee. I’ve mentioned before that I can go from being a lady to having a vicious case of trailer park Tourettes in under five seconds. Believe me, that was not an exaggeration. Some people are highly opposed to cuss words…and that’s cool with me, but I am who I am and I wouldn’t be me without an f-bomb here and there. If someone doesn’t like how I speak, that’s okay because I like me and that’s the important thing. And trust me, I can craft a beautiful grammatically correct sentence using just about any swear word you can think of. I also do a mean alliteration full of a variety of words that begin with “f”. I also know when to turn it off if necessary…I’m not a total heathen for cryin’ out loud.
     How does Casey Kasem tie into all of this you might be wondering? Or if you’re under 40 you might be asking who exactly is Casey Kasem? He really doesn’t tie in to swear words at all. This is just a bonus ramble for all of you. You’re welcome.
     Casey Kasem’s American Top 40 my friends! Remember that? Back in the dark ages before iPods, iPads, and iPhones there was simply, “I” have to listen to Casey Kasem’s American Top 40 this weekend to record my favorite song on a cassette tape in my boom box. That’s old school downloading baby! Every weekend a local radio station plays an American Top 40 show from whatever date it is from some random year in the ’80’s. And this morning I was listening to it while trapped in my car by a rainstorm at Walmart. I remember being totally into it back in the day, so even though it was rainy and yucky it was kinda cool being stuck in my car jammin’ to some “Funky Cold Medina” with Casey….ha!

    This is just too sassy for words! I love the outfit but I love your story even more! Casey Kasem indeed! I still remember hovering over the boombox, two fingers poised over the “play” and “record” buttons because that’s how cheap my boombox was. Ah, good times!

      OMG….yes! The two finger push to record…haha!

    First … you’re gorgeous! There’s a sweetness and prettiness that belies the assertiveness of your statement on you shirt. Great look, as always.
    It’s always good to have an effective vocabulary, and in some cases, cussing is required for emphasis. I’ve found out that any really foul word, jusdiciously and infrequently use, can make some serious impact.
    I have to tell you about my mom … she was always such a lady. Well groomed in kind of a Lauren Bacall sort of way, tailored and tasteful and modern. She was raised in the Drpression-era oil fields, and had command of a varied and colorful swearing vocabulary. She didn’t hesitate to use them to effect, but sometimes she got it horribly wrong. She never believed that “twat” didn’t mean your backside, butt or bottom. I remember her using it at a school picnic, when one of the very little boys fell out of swing. She picked him up as all the other mothers rushed to the scene, just in time to hear Mom tsk-tsk about him falling right on his little “twat.” Not only were they shocked at her use of the word in the first place, the gender misapplication was too much for some of them. Lots of laughter and scandalized looks … Mother uncomprehending, and early-teen-me looking for a place to hide.
    Casey Kasem! Of course … late night radio for all of my youth! He was around for a long time!
    Enjoyed your post a lot!

      What a fabulous story about your mom…funny! And I love that she was Lauren Bacall-esque with a rowdy mouth…that makes her damn near perfect. 🙂

    I remember good ol’ Casey : ) Ah…that takes me back.

    Looky looky how tan your legs are girl!!! I love the hair up with the tie in it. I’d do that…but can I borrow some of your hair? You seem to have more than you need ; )


    • 06.14.2014 / 7:42 am

      Ha! I do have tons of hair. I could easily give you some and still have plenty left. That’s my one feature I really can’t complain about.

    • 06.14.2014 / 7:46 am

      Yes….frustrating…nowadays you’re lucky if there’s an actual human dj..ha!

    Cute tee. And we never need to apologize for expressing ourselves, using any language we choose.

    This post caught my eye because the Casey Kasem story is still in the news. His daughter is complaining she can’t find his (dead) body because his new wife is hiding it. They’re playing games with a corpse in a sad family drama.

    • 07.20.2014 / 7:07 am

      Thanks! I agree with you. That is unbelievably insane about Casey Kasem’s family…I didn’t know it was still ongoing. Sad.
