Embarrassing BlogHer Moment #2

I was not trying to look like Elvis. Let me repeat: I was not trying to look like Elvis Presley.
Truly, I was going for more of a sparkly 80's Disco Inferno kind of thing. And I thought I looked fine, in a Boogie Oogie Oogie way.
Then about 5 people at the Sparklecorn party called me either "Elvis," or "The King."
I walked out in the lobby to have Heather B. say (I think she mighta had a couple drinks in her) "You look funnnnny, Suebob."
I went in the bathroom and observed: Elvis, OMG Elvis.
And not the young skinny Elvis, either. The horror. Elvis with 37 undissolved pills in his stomach and an impacted colon, ready to keel over.
Next year I'm going all the way and getting a jumpsuit.
