2008 is off to a Good Start

I am sick.

There is no other explanation. I just left a party early. A party. A party with FREE ALCOHOL and lemon meringue tartlets.

WTF is wrong with me?

Well, there was a decadent hotel room complete with bubble bath waiting for me. And also an infinite number of spreadsheets, that I’d like to complete before 3:00 in the morning. (Obviously, taking a break to write on my blog whilst sipping Chardonnay is a great way to efficiently reach that goal.) My social skeelz are plummeting, but I care not, for if you were to sleep in this bed, oh, you would want to go to bed at granny-early, too.

In happier news, following up my last e-mail of joy and sunshine… The Funasaurus and I indulged a dream, and with some creative financing, we have procured ourselves this:


A Civic hybrid. It makes me happy to think about it. And bless his ever-trusting soul, The Funasaurus even lets me drive it. Immediately after we drove it off the lot, we proceeded to joy-ride around the greater Denver area for no reason at all, spewing our energy-efficient exhaust willy-nilly, and marveling at our Jetsons-like dashboard.

Sadly, I had to leave the dream behind, as we partied like rock stars into 2008 with our annual Funasaurus party, and then I woke up four hours later and went to the airport for my business trip to San Francisco.

And thus, here I sit, once again in the lap of luxury, running spreadsheets until my eyeballs bleed.

Fucking why I haven’t I ever had THIS before? Because it is my new favoritest thing EVER. A) It’s so pretty. B) It’s stupidly expensive. C) It tastes so yummy. (If water can be yummy.) So can you just imagine how my little heart leapt with cracked-out joy when I discovered it’s also from Norway?? Oh yes. Artesian H2O directly from Scandinavia, specifically the country I intend to reign over somewhat benevolently, someday. I am in heaven. And drinking many (recyclable? Eh, it’s iffy) bottles of beautiful water daily. Between glasses of Chardonnay.

Get yourself some. You will not be disappointed.

Thus I spake.

Sweet wheels.

Never leave a party with free alcohol. Its bad karma. Next time, the party gods will see to it that you PAY for your booze.

Voss water is my favorite, too! I love love love the bottles... and the expensiveness. :)

Oooh, fancy new car!!

I have seen that water at World Market before, and I'm always drawn to it, though I've never bought any. Maybe upon your recommendation, I'll shell out the cash for it next time and really live the high life for a minute!

You were made to drink Voss - totally. IT is a sign.

Missed you - but I also somehow knew that you would still be sick - think that's the Mommy intuition in me?

Nice ride. Except it needs some gold spinning rims to be really cool.

Feel better.

Christie said...

Um, excuse me. Did you just say that you left a party early? That had FREE alcohol? I am ashamed. ASHAMED!

Nice wheels! When I clicked on the link I thought it was a new brand of vodka . . .

Voss water! My friend had it at a bar mitzvah and was so charmed by the water she kept the bottle as a souvenir.
