girl friends…

– celebrating the final exam.  even in our 40’s-ish state… is still pretty sweet.  she went back in her 30’s, a few courses at a time, while breeding.   that’s hardcore.  done is done.  even sweeter when you’re the elder-chick in class…

– three empty bottles later.  nothing edible in the house – except for some yogurt, organic milk, low-fat granola bars.  doping the orville redenbachers low fat popcorn with a half stick of high test butter because you need to crunch through something decadent…

– life, the universe and everything.  people, friendship, relationships and being responsible for providing the foundation of life for those little genetic products.  it’s just easier with a bottle of good pinot grigio, a leftover bottle of champagne and a bottle of decent riesling hastily thrown in the freezer to make it drinkable.

– work stress?  who cares… we’re celebrating, goddamnit.

– managed to get an accent wall painted.  ladder, paint and something called “glaze” applied with an ancient washcloth.  i’ve only been here 8 months.  time to start making the place look like something other than an asylum by getting shit hung on the walls.  after the first bottle, it seemed like a really good idea.  guess i’ll know for sure in the morning…

– i’m a lucky, lucky puppy…

life. is. good.

life. is. good.

    Sounds like quite a night. How was the following morning?

  2. alex – not too bad. but then again, i haven’t started dealing with the office idiot brigade yet…

    nursemyra – it’s from the Life collection. if i hadn’t been obliterated, i’d have had the link clickable… if you search google image, and add “source:Life” to your search string, it rolls the archives!

    toby – had it been snowing last night? mighta coulda been us. ow…

    kyknoord – right now? it’s saying “ya really shouldn’t drink and paint”. sounds a little canadian, or at least minnasotean to me. but what do i know? got a raging headache…

    silverstar – it looks like i’m a ‘happy drunk’, doesn’t it? the “i love you, man” sort of lush… better than the toilet-hugging, fire-starting, pass-out-on-the-floor-without-pants kinda lush… oh, and i’m momentarily partial to a bit of irish, myself.

  3. Imagine how good “finalexamchick”‘s Dad feels! She and the brood are coming to visit next week. But Daisyfae?? NOOOooo

  4. unbearable banishment – warm, silly, contemplative and connected… yep. that which reminds us that we’re really human.

    stephanie – unplanned stuff is often the best. the morning headache? notsomuch…

    utahdad – Welcome to The Park! you and i are sharing that proud moment this week, as my eldest sprog took her last final exam yesterday as well! i’m afraid i won’t fit in her suitcase… besides, i’m having knee surgery next week. no skiing for me this season!

    uncle keith – aren’t ALL men hoping for the g-on-g moment? maybe we’ll plan a pajama party next time. and have a pillow fight in your honor…

  5. I treasure nights like those – nothing formal – a little glaze, alotta butter, a great grad gift for sure …and though they were all white-colored wines, I’ll bet her head must still hurt (omgyes). What aspirin and Taco Bell cannot fix, the hair of the dog must, so TGIW.

  6. KJ – a happy little estrogen fest, it was! the biggest challenge was that it was a ‘school night’ — they both had little critters and business to attend to today, and i had to be at the damn office. blechh… talk about buzzkill…

    dolce – that’s a happy place to be! something really cool about friends who understand you well enough to accept your fuckedupedness in all it’s goofy glory! not that you’re fucked up…

    Pickles, BA – [humming pomp and circumstance] i think part of my headache this morning was from butter intoxication. i shall see you and share a few pints of dog hair tonight! beer bingo forever, sister!

  7. I had a girlfriend once who never wanted to make her house homey. Her mom bought a bunch of those awful picture frames with all the different size places to display your “loved” ones. She hung them all the way she got them. With the pictures that were already in them.

  8. casey – my daughter will pick out frames based on the ‘stock’ photos inside, and then leave them up. i like the ‘cute couples’ shots, myself…

    kevinjohn – may have to wait until i travel with nursemyra again! we like to play dress up, drink wine and wrestle…
