How to sucessfully make new friends ...

My new show has had me move to a different floor. I didn't really know anyone when I started here last Thursday but I managed to make some new friends on the Friday afternoon all thanks to a kitsch pair of false gold eyelashes.

Friday was my housemates birthday party and she organised an evening at The Roller Disco party in London. Apparently you need to dress up for this experience so the dress code was strictly 70's and 80's gear. The lovely Midnight Gem loaned me a TINY gold boob tube dress, gold disco ball earrings, chunky gold necklace and a beautiful pair of gold eyelashes.

These were the problem. Miss M has no idea how to put on eyelashes, hers are long enough thank you very much! So at 545pm on Friday Miss M had to wander around a bunch of strangers and beg for SOMEONE to apply her eyelashes for her.

Miss M wandering around like a lost puppy dog walks up to a random show

Miss M: Excuse me, do any of you know how to put on false eyelashes?

Random stranger: Puzzled expression Umm no. Why?

Miss M: I have some that I need put on. I need help.

Random stranger: Do I know you?

Miss M: I don't think so but can you help?!

Random Stranger: To the entire office area Hey, do any of you guys know how to put on false eyelashes?!

Most answers are no but 3 gay guys walk up to Miss M and start debating how to do it

Miss M: Anyone, I need anyone!

Very nice girl who's name I can not remember: I'll give it a shot, shall we go to the bathroom and try?


So she managed to glue my eyelashes on perfectly, however the problem was that by now I had gathered quite the audience of people curious as to what I was doing and where I was going. They convinced me to get all dolled up and come and show them.

Miss M: Walking out of the bathroom and into the office I feel completely naked! Do I look absolutely terrible?!

10 people turn around and pack up laughing.

Everyone: You look great Miss M!

This is when I realise that I'm standing there in a truly tiny gold dress where my boobs might pop out any minute with horrific makeup and extremely large gold eyelashes in a room full of complete strangers.

Well we're all now best buddies.

And they just love my boobs.

Pictures no get! ;)

Michelle Hix said...

I guess needing help with false eye lashes was a good ice breaker?

sweets said...

i want pictures!!!!!!!
totally unfair!!!!!

you must have looked gooooooowgis... ;)

KaB said...

Ah man...sounds like a blast! I'd kill for a pair of gold eyelashes...bugger!

I must say, I burst out laughing when the three poefs turned to help you...that's brilliant...you can always count on a poef! They help you out & are eager to do so but more importantly they would have been completely honest with you...a poef's taste is great taste & if they liked you...damn...you probably looked great! Good for you :)

So I guess that makes them bosom buddies?

The Divine Miss M said...

@michelle - It appears so yes

@sweets - If I remember to download the ones of my eyes from my phone I might post them up as a treat, but would rather just remain annoymous on that front if that is ok?

@kab - I'm a total fag hag at work ;) Got loads of the gay boys as my friends!

@kyk - *snigger*

Ruby said...

thanx for making me laugh today:) its been a pretty crappy day so far...now i think i need a tiny little gold dress and golden false eyelashes;)

The Divine Miss M said...

@ruby - they work wonders, especially batting your eyelashes at innocent walkers by ;)

I'll try to remember to post some of my eyes up, nothing of me!

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Sounds like a neat way to meet folks—so long as those eyelashes were not attached using superglue as one of my not-too-bright ex-girlfriends once did.

Mike said...

Just to be original, I'm going to ask for pictures too.

And just for your information, that part about "gold boob tube dress"

I only got the word boob out of that.

I like boobs.

So, did they pop out during the show?

The Divine Miss M said...

@nick - HAHAHHAAHA, how did you guys deal with THAT?!

@mike - Cheeky sod. No the twins were very well behaved thanks for asking ;)

Natalie said...

hahaha, I might try that sometime...LOL @ the gay guys debating!haha

happy snapper said...

hi divine miss M!
firstly, love your blog!

secondly, I wish I could have been a fly on the wall to witness the whole gold eyelashes episode, he he. At least everyone in that room will always remember how they met you :)
