Just curious ...

I want to put together a little shin-dig in the next week or two ... to celebrate the life and legend of this man:


That's right, Patrick W. Swayze.

No, I've never seen a full film that he was in and I don't really like this* song he sang all that much either.

But none of that is important. What is important is Pat's love for black pants. It was noted one night while Pat was dirtily dancing away that even though I have never seen his films or documentaries to their entirety, every time I have seen him - he was in black pants. Just a few examples ...

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

Exhibit C:

So. To honor his life we could all meet up for a little dinner ... wearing black pants. Naturally.

The point of this blog: would you be interested in joining me?

Seriously.

Let me know. Invitations may follow.

No, I am not obsessed with black pants ... I really don't like black pants so much. But evidently he did and so I feel that if someone is so passionate about something it should be honored. In life. In death. Join me. Please.

* WARNING: The video to that song has got a little ... dirty dancin' to it. Just sayin'.

Exhibit B is enough reason to honor the man: one of the funniest SNL skits ever. You should do it.

I agree with Mike! LOVE that skit. If I lived in Logan, I would totally join you for a black pants/Patrick Swayze dinner!

haha, you are so funny. If I lived closer I would have loved to come. Otherwise make sure you let us all know how the black pants party goes.

Katie said...

I too, would love to come...if I didn't live across the country! Great idea though, sounds like a blast. Plus...its getting close to halloween so you shouldn't get too many goofy looks ;)

DeeAura said...

Oh my gosh, I would so be there! WHY do you live hours away from me? I think I have to watch a little DD to make myself feel better. Probably in my black sweat pants, though. * sigh * hahah :)

Krystal said...

I will be in Logan Saturday and would be delighted to join you at a black-pants dinner... also, if you want a really good laugh regarding DD, watch How I Met Your Mother - episode "first time in new york" ... Neil Patrick Harris takes on the role of Patrick in Exhibit C... so so hilarious!!

Ok, There was a Patrick Swayze Marathon on the other night and Drew had to work that night so naturally...I watched it. You have to watch Ghost. It made me cry, I was paranoid I was going to lose Drew and wanted him to come home. He laughed so hard.

**10 gold stars to Mindy if she watches Ghost

Hey I live in Logan. I have black pants. I would love to join you in remembering him. Really it would just be fun to get together.

Mindy, you are so funny and it is always such a delight to read your posts! I hope all is going well. And have fun at your "Crazy for Swayze" party. (That's what they call it on Full House.)

I would come...but don't put me in the corner! Also where do you find Black pants like that and how tight would they have to be?

Avree said...

Could I bring my 18 month old? Or is it for non-marrieds? Now I have Saturday's Warrior in my head, thanks Mindy, real cool.

P.S. My word verification is "inerds"

Fabulous idea Miss Mindy. You can totally pull it off. If I lived in Logan I would be there in a heart beat!
