Pandemonium! 2022

My, oh, my....

September 10, 2022 was my return to Cleveland Public Theater’s Pandemonium event! This year I served as House Manager for a series of dance performances held in a converted church.

I got dressed on site, so this was my travel outfit. Simple, basic and ever so comfortable and me!

My dear friend Sherry (you remember her, right?) and I took a few photos before she had to begin her volunteer shift. Sharing parts of the experience throughout the evening with Sherry and watching her enjoy herself, was a highlight for me.

I took the opportunity to go a little off-script for me with this recent Forever 21 bargain I found. This was the only place I would wear it, that’s for sure!

I’m not going to lie, the numerous compliments I received throughout the night was a tremendous high. Also, renewing numerous friendships was thrilling. I made quite a few new friendships. Many remembered seeing me as the main greeter for the art museum’s Summer Solstice party.

I was my typical carnival barker, drawing people into the church to watch the incredible dancers. I think I did a pretty good job of keeping the seats full. I enjoyed every second of it. I hope you can see below, you can’t fake this stuff!

After my shift, I changed into my “first communion” dress. Both dresses worn could only really be worn at this event and I hope by now they are hanging in someone’s closet after I sent them off to Goodwill.

Walking around in this dress, many noticed that I had changed and I got plenty more compliments. I met so many wonderful people, had lengthy discussions with them and what pleased me most, these discussions were about them, not me and who and what I am.

I got there a few hours before showtime and left as the lights were being dimmed. I’m not usually a night owl like this, but I had a blast.

Side story: That morning was the first time I had seen Jim since he met Kandi. Jim is an inquisitive and very reflective person. We ran another 14 miles and talked for a great deal of it. I then saw him and his beautiful wife (inside and out) Magda at Pandemonium. Getting a chance to talk with her had me tearing up, just the amazing connection we have is really special. At the end of this week, Jim will be running a half and I will be running a full marathon in my quest to right the wrong that was my performance in Boston. Wish me luck or at least wish me not to suck!

Post script: Thoughts and prayers to Sherry and her family on the recent loss of her father. 🙏 Not only is the loss of a loved one sad, it marks the passing of a sort to another stage of our lives. We start to become the elders in the world. This post is for you!

  1. Kandi, the silver dress is amazing and wonderful and daring and … just wow! The “communion” dress is cute, but maybe just a little bit short, IMO. Yet another fabulous event for you and Sherry to be seen and accepted.

  2. Sherry, my heart goes out to you. I have now lost both my parents. I cherish my memories of them and try to be like both of them in all the ways that matter. I am sure you are doing the same. My sincere condolences. Lisa

If you have been looking for an economical permanent hair removal solution, I cannot recommend this highly enough! It costs less than a single session at a laser hair removal place. It is almost completely painless and it actually works! I have been on an eight year quest for something like this!
