I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

First things first.

1. Happy New Year

2. Happy Birthday, Sister

I am at work today, although my body tried to hold me hostage and NOT get out of bed. I also went to bed at like 7 o'clock last night. Sort of. I needed, um, a lot of recovery from Wednesday night's festivities. I think I learned some important lessons that night. One, if you cannot even read the words to a song on Rock Band, it's probably time to go to bed. Two, if you have been drinking champagne and rum & cokes all evening, don't mix your own drinks. Or BETTER YET, stop drinking and go to bed. Things reached ridiculous levels that night. Jon spun Miguel around in circles and then Miguel ran headfirst into the bookcase. True story. It's on video. Also. I said things like this:

Technology ruins EVERYTHING.

And this:

Joe: Do you want some water?
Me: No, I'll wait for them to bring ice cubes.
Joe: ...what? Who is bringing ice cubes?
Me: [unintelligible]

I don't really remember that last part, but Joe assures me that it happened.

Anyway, around 1:30, Heidi, Joe, and I managed to drag ourselves to Wendy's, and then home. I was supposed to be at my parents' house around 4 and getting ready was like torture, which is why I ended up going over there in my pajamas. Honestly, they're lucky I showered. Then I ate way too many mashed potatoes, felt like dying, and so I went home to die in my own bed. Good times.

I was still too drunk to shower so I just changed into different pajamas. I also think I was too drunk to drive last night at 5:30.

OH boy

P.S. Happy Birthday Mindy!

Ahahahahaha! We are winners. Joe drove us to my parents' because I could barely walk, let alone drive.

I love your title for this post. What is that from? I can't remember.

I'm glad you had a fun night, and I hope that the mystery ice cube delivery arrived...

Please don't forget to include when you and Heidi called and left a message on my phone that kept repeating my name over and over for a couple minutes and then hung up....awesome!! Loved it. Happy New Year and Happy Birthday to your sis.

Jennie! said...

mg! it's a Frank Sinatra quote. Hee.

Beau, would it surprise you to know that I do not remember doing that?

I am so sorry. Remember when I had a hangover for three days? I hope that doesn't happen to you.

Stephanie said...

Champagne AND rum and cokes? You, sir, are either a god or insane. Or maybe both.
