Doot Do Do Do Do Doot Doot, Livin' in the USA

Here is a picture of my girl crush and my friend Erika drinking the delicious punch Erika made for the bachelorette party a couple of weeks ago.

So, apparently today is the day where I embrace my inalienable right to be hungover and walk around town with a belly full of shame. Since I'm not so good at holding my liquor, I have to be so careful about keeping track of how many pints I have. But last night, the guys at my table kept filling up my glass when I wasn't paying attention and now I'm a little worse for wear. I just hate it that you have to pay to play, you know?

It all started innocently enough. My friend J. called me and asked if I wanted to go for a beer. We used to work together at Great Midwestern about a hundred million years ago, and he had just broken up with his latest girly a couple of weeks earlier, so we had plenty to talk about. I really was only going to have a couple of beers. I'm trying not spend any money so I can save up for my trip.

Then my friend R. showed up with his younger brother and his friends. R. used to be a regular at Great Midwestern, so it was kind of a coffee shop reunion. Luckily, I didn't spend hardly any money, but like I said, I still drank WAY too much. I'm doing much better now, but at one point while I was running, "Tequila" by Herb Alpert and Tijuana Brass Band came on my iPod and just thinking about the title of that song made my stomach turn.

punch tastes best from an orange cooler

Now I am so curious who J and R are! I want to know! I miss the GMIC gang. Isn't it funny that those were just the people we worked with then but they were somehow, now, like way cooler than most people? I even think of the peopel I didn't like and I'd like htem more than most. Maybe it's just the whole past-perfect thing, but I don't think so.

Happy 4th! Maybe the hangover's gone by now?

Churlita,If I have more than two my brain shuts down and then I feel, briefly, 18 again. In the morning it's more of an 81 feeling.
Sounds like a worth-while cause though!

It's a pretty bad day when even your iPod turns against you.

To this day if I hear the song "One round with Jose Cuervo" my stomach does flip flops. Never, ever play a drinking game where every time someone says "round" in above mentioned song you do a shot.

Aw, sorry you were feeling poisonous. Think of what you did as a favor to your friends :-)
