For the girlsFebruary 12, 2008
Last night when we were out to dinner, I had a mini panic attack when one of the girls in a group of friends who has recently adopted me mentioned my Mayflower connection. How the hell did she know about that?!
Apparently the answer is that when your legally wedded husband refuses to sign a little piece of paper that says that you can purchase your own home and you go to a girlfriend’s house when invited over for “wine night” as a distraction and you end up drinking three bottles instead of three glasses, you blab to the room that you have a blog and why, yes, here’s the URL. And then they go and read it! Who knew?!
So, welcome, lovely ladies. You’re incredible. And I am so thankful that you have all taken me under your wing and encouraged me never, ever, under any circumstances, to live with a man again. It takes decades to find people who will offer that kind of encouragement! 😉
And because this used to be kind of a fun place to hang out before winter hit and because y’all were expecting me to be funny on this blog, I will repost some of my (hopefully) more funny moments. Because it seems to me that there was a time when I was funny. It just hasn’t been recently.
Spring is coming, though, and I have hope. For God’s sake, I’m leaving for Vegas on Sunday! For work, mind you, but still. Steve isn’t going to be able to come this year, so I’m not sure that craps will be any fun without him, and seeing as how I recently shackled myself to a 30-year mortgage, I may not gamble at all. But it’s something to pack for and a chance to escape the cold for a bit.
So to everyone who is new, and everyone who has been hanging in there with me, a few of the postings that have had the best reactions and gotten a chuckle or two. Cheers! (We’ll begin with a post on Scotch — my personal favorite.)
And my wish for all of you, as always, taken from my birthday post this year:
“May you live every day of your life” — Jonathan Swift
Scotch, Starbucks, baklava, robotic ponies and the redwoods. Yep. That about sums it up. Vegas, here I come!
