January is hard. Happy birthday to Adam, Ross, and Xian, in that order. And happy MLK, just for good measure. Also, my Wu-name is Half-Cut Skeleton. Chew on that for awhile.
For those of you who keep up with these things, Ross is fine, and I don't think he'll be drinking 8 shots of whiskey in rapid succession again anytime soon. But tomorrow is another day, and also the day of the actual whiskey party, so I may be underestimating 3-day weekend birthday boy.
Currently, I'm wondering if three of my favorite people who were drinking shots at my house, and are driving home across the snowy plateau in a car with brake problems, are lying in a ravine somewhere. Life will not be worth living anymore if they are, so I hope someone will call me when they arrive home safely.
Highlights of the weekend: Punching Randy in the eye with my glass ring during a heated (read drunken) bit of thumbwar....Mike-wrestling in nice clothes in the mud...Mike-wrestling in nice clothes out of the mud...free Cracker Barrel breakfast for six...hanging out with Kyle and Rachael for the first time as a couple and noticing they seem to be making each other really happy (or maybe it was the whiskey?), thus changing my outlook completely...the philosophic stylings of 3-day weekend birthday boy from the bathroom, in between hurls...snow...and a few lucious moments of unmention.
Lowlights of the weekend: Giving Randy a black and bloody eye...mud on my nice clothes...busting my ass, audibly, on the stairs in the wee hours...more bruises than I like to have at one time...having to play naggy bitchy girl...earning free Cracker Barrel breakfast for six...an absolute inability to have the right keys at the right time...pathetic, sickly 3-day weekend birthday boy (BTW, he's very very very very very very sorry. I know, because he said it, a lot)...and the unbearable mindfuck of a few lucious moments of unmention.
Thus ends your humble narrator's 30-day bender. It's been swell, but the swelling's gone down. Planning for Old Crow Medicine Show at the Tennessee on February 26 will begin in 5....4...3....2.....
