There’s going to be a fundraising walk for the AIM at Melanoma Foundation on November 17 in Charlotte, North Carolina. I’ve been conspiring with some fellow bloggers and others in the melanoma community to make this event something more than a morning walk in the park, and perhaps a sort of mole mate Woodstock gathering. Plans are sketchy at this point, but we can pretty much guarantee there’ll be a rousing after-party, which will likely include some loud music and table dancing. If the Mayan calendar is right, this could be one of your last chances to teach the pink world that we at the Hotel Melanoma are younger and cooler and really know how to party. So save the date. Details to follow.
To get you into the spirit, here’s a new version of ZZ Top’s La Grange…
Rumour spreadin' a-'round in this cyber town
'bout this walk outside in Charlotte
and you’ll know what I'm talkin' about.
Just let me know if you wanna go
to this walk that’s all the rage.
There’ll be lotta nice folks ah.
A haw, haw, haw, haw, a haw.
A haw, haw, haw.
Well, come wear your sign if you got the time
and the black to put yourself in.
A hmm, hmm.
And we’ll party right, most ev'ry night,
but now I might be mistaken.
hmm, hmm, hmm.
Ah have mercy.
