LIFE-AFFIRMING GEMS (LAG) OF THE WEEK:
“At the 1/3 mark of Melissa & Tony’s freestyle …On the big screen was the galaxy and PLANET MIRRORBALLUS WAS THERE! Oh. My. Goodness! It’s real! Dreams do come true!” –debbsjo, endorsed by Wiltasaurus, Colleen
HIDDEN GEMS: La Famiglia Fringe Fairissima! To ease my disappointment over not spotting them on this, the last night of All-Star gem hunting, I have composed the following lament: “To Annie, Wherever I May Find Her” –Michele
I could not find them in their chairs,
I could not find them by the stairs,
Behind Tom’s elbow, near Brooke’s knee,
Nor anywhere on my TV.
I did not see them on the fly
As giddy dancers raced on by.
Je ne les ai pas vus au Skybox,
In spangled spats or sparkling socks.
No sign of Annie (beige and black)
No family in rows (front or back).
Perhaps they’re in some WAAAY-back row
Where only the unglittered go…
BUT…No Dee, Bill or sister Meggers
Among the dowdy, fringe-less beggars.
Alas! Alack! Where can you be?
Sweet Barretts and Dear Fringe Fairy!
“Can’t talk! Crying, choking up, and #sparklebarfing all over the place right now!” –Fringe Fairy
For those of you also wondering where the heck we were, you can kind of see us in the top left corner here: My really tall blond dad’s head obstructed by a feisty seat filler, sister, mom, and yours truly.
BONUS FRINGE FAIRY SPARKLEBARF
I can’t believe another season of our collective Jewel Quest is over. Frankly I can’t believe any of you keep coming back to participate in this INSANITY at all! That was not true! I’m a huge liar. Never trust a legendary creature.
Thank you, DANCMSTRs one and all, for a fabulous season of gems!
Not Enough Tristan in this pot o’ gold, I say! Press play for an extra dose of brogue-y goodness.
