After surviving more than 200 million years and outliving the dinosaurs, turtles are now among the most endangered creatures on Earth. Half of the 300 species are currently facing extinction and are symbolic of all creatures who are disappearing from the earth. The Turtle Conservancy is dedicated to protecting the most endangered turtles, tortoises and their habitats worldwide.

    Wait, what!? It was boring, Abbs?? Lol

  4. abbe Says:

    hey, i never said it was boring, i said it was “okay.” actually with that guest list and all the margaritas i drank, it felt a lot like working at The Park.

    the dinner was the best part, i was seated next to great people so that was fun, we were cracking up the whole time. good gossip too.
    but for the life of me i cannot figure out why Belinda Becker played such awful music. it was like she showed up expecting it to be a party at on old folks’ nursing home. i mean, i know we’re old, but i would have thought it was understood we’re still DISCERNING, for fuck’s sake. the last time i heard music that bad was at my nephew’s 10th birthday party at the Elk’s Lodge in Oradell, NJ.
    and the show– oi, the show. and i am not even talking about the actual show “show,” i am talking about the “auction” before dinner. ha ha ha ha ha it was hilarious, you should have been there.

    then after dinner there was no music at all, nobody knew what the hell was going on. and then when it finally started up, it was “Groove is in the Heart” by Dee Lite. need i say more?
    as you can well imagine, that was the cue to leave. maybe it got more awesome after that, the fuck i know. Nur Khan was just arriving as we were exiting, maybe he got the party jumping.

    hope you’re happy now. stop being so mean, it was FOR CHARITY, bitches.

    LMAO if you that that we’re being mean, you should read the article in the Times about it! They made fun of it and said that the guests were “prehistoric”. Yea that means you ;P

  6. abbe Says:

    haa i just googled the Times article. meeeow!

    holy cow. at least i liked my dinner companions. that writer must have been sitting with some real assholes.

    i noticed he mentioned the “auction” too, geezus. i didn’t see it so much as a “harangue” — more like a “christ they must think we’re stupid” kinda thing. hahahahaha

    okay well, i guess i don’t feel so bad after all. carry on, bitches.

  7. Guess Says:

    I like how we’ve all picked different names now, but I think I’m getting confused.

    OK, so I had to read that Times piece, and holy cow is right. That was almost painful.

    Abbster, since you don’t feel so bad anymore, why don’t you just go ahead and write out the whole story about the auction. Ooops, I mean “auction” in quotes. LOL

    It’s funny. Don’t be such a pussy. Ahh, it would be just like the good old days.
