The lazy days of summer have been just that, but we have much to catch up on...
Let's start with this:
In other alcohol related news-- my friend Layton and I went and had a BIG time out on the town a few weekends ago. We took a cab home (note to self, Randy Travis) and I persuaded the driver to run through Krystal before we got home. I haven't done this a lot since college, but it happens every now and again. Anyway-- we got back to Layton's house with our food and she had this HUGE bottle of ketchup in her refrigerator. Like one of those ones from Costco... You know what I'm talking about?? And it was full. And she got it out and was shaking it vigorously, and I mean vigorously, in an attempt, I presume, to rid any of the watery red tented ooze that can happen if you're not careful. So she's shakin' shakin' shakin' it and WAM!!! Drops it... ... RIGHT. ON. MY. FOOT. It hurt so bad. I mean-- soooo bad. I started crying real tears right there in her kitchen. Just slumped down on the floor crying and held my foot and looked into her eyes as if she was Satan's lap dog. She felt so bad and honestly-- it would have been funny if I hadn't been in such PAIN. I thought surely it was broken, but alas-- it was not. Just a little blood blister on my pinky toe the next day. The price you pay to the party gods, I guess.
Moving on... I've recently returned from a trip out West. Not the wild, wild West (dang), but rather Los Angeles and San Diego. I got to see my good friend Luke in LA and we toured the Paramount Lot where he works which was super cooool. I got to see fake Chicago and fake New York and all KINDS of things. I wanted to get a picture of myself on the steps of one of the NYC Brownstones doing my best "Carrie Bradshaw" impersonation, but we were pressed for time, a security guard was eyeballing us, and I wasn't wearing the right shoes... Bummer. We hopped on a train on Sunday to San Diego. It was a lovely way to travel. I highly recommend it if you have the chance. Oversized seats that lean wayyyy back. A drink car that serves alcohol and views like this one all the live long day...
I think that's all I have for you today, folks. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Thanks so much for reading.
