My favorite night of all has to be the Home Shopping Network, because it was my first night ever at Jackie. I had been told my several different people- "oh, you would love Jackie." So I went one night, and it was packed to the rafters, but when I walked in I was entraced by Marti and Jessica on stage- dialing the phone, teasing each other's hair, etc. Like nothing I had ever seen before. What I wore will not be discussed, though I remember it too well, as such things have long since been extricated from my wardrobe. The show was Big Sue II...and I remember thinking what a talented bunch people- so Mickey & Judy putting on a dazzling show. Later, Sweetie sans Big Sue attire, walked by me, said to some boys "hiya fellas." I thought she was so mean (and I was scared of her)...little did I know that she was exactly like her name Sweetie (and she would become one of my best friends in NYC). Not till later on at other nights did I discover the carnal pleasures of the downstairs bathrooms and the omnipresent lurking chaser(s), but the memories of that night, and seeing a new world that had never been available to me elsewhere (tired DC)...and then living it (literally & figuratively) for 7 years on. I doubt such a phenomena will be repeated.
