July 16 07

most of you will not be shocked by this news. i have a lot of male friends. i always have. in high school, many of my closest friends were guys.

perhaps it’s because i’m not a typical girly-girl. yes, i like to shop for hours and i enjoy celebrity gossip and i like to bake, but in most instances, i’m less girly than most of my friends. i like movies where shit gets blown up. i’d rather watch someone die by falling off a cliff than die by cancer. i like Dane Cook, and Borat, and South Park and Jackass. i prefer beer and scotch to anything fruity or blended. i like gadgets and electronics – when i get the ads in the paper on thursday, i’m going straight for the best buy ad. i like cars. i like sports. a lot. and i can sit and talk about jessica biel’s ass for hours.

so…you can imagine i was a little nervous when Tova wanted to have a cocktail party. i had visions of cosmos and dacquiris dancing in my head. (where was the beer?? i can do beer!) but, Tova is one of my besties, and far be it for me not to participate. She got very excited – bought out the liquor store. seriously, her husband had to bring half of it back! she got some books – mixed-drinks for dummies types – and got to work. mojitos. bloody brains. chocolate eruptions (not the name, exactly…that’s from Goonies…but something close to it). We had a blast.

i did realize one thing, though. when it comes to girly drinks…i’m all girl.

3 1/2 drinks later and this was me:

passed out. asleep. on Tova’s chair.

which, i guess, is better than the husband. who spent his evening in the bathroom, puking.

  1. Ohhh, fun! I hate chick flicks, too…. But, I hate violence in movies. Too scary…… I’m sooo getting drunk with you when I can drink again (which is, like, in a year and a half or something!?) 😉

    Can a hostess chat about the ‘awesomeness’ of her own party?

  8. Bwah! AndreAnna and I need to move to Toronto to hang out with you. Life here in NJ is not nearly as exciting. 🙂

  13. We had a small BBQ for Canada Day & my husband got so smashed he puked/passed out before the last guest left. Luckily it was a small group of very good friends who can laugh with me about my husband the big loser – lol! Did I mention that wasn’r the 1st time? He is actually known for doing that. My friends without kids understand we don’t get out much so when we do we really party!

  14. Okay, I’m a total guy in that I puke like your husband when I drink too much. But that’s only cause I drink freaking boilermakers. Ouch.

  16. Sounds like fun! Somehow all of our parties end up with pictures of women touching other women’s breasts, women flashing breasts, etc. Good party!

  17. Tova’s comment…hilarious!

    I’d be passed out after 1 1/2 drinks. In fact I was just this past weekend. Go ahead and call me a loser…I can take it.

  18. I’m not so girlie girl either! It looks like you had a lot of fun and a lot of alcohol! The last time I partied like that… was indeed probably 1999.
