    I'm Not Dead Yet

    Ok, so I thought things were going to get less busy but I was wrong. Now that school's out, I can work more hours. I have been working until after 5. I'm paid hourly so this is a bonus.

    Friday night I went to the horse races with a group that included my mom and grandma. We had a great time since we know several people who have horses. The horses are harness racers which means that the jockey is pulled in a cart behind the horse. I won a little and lost a little. Overall I think I was only down 15 dollars. The lowest bet you can make is $2 so that is what I did.

    The party on Saturday with the PTA was a hit. I cleaned and cooked my ass off. There were only six of us but you would have thought there were more of us since we were so loud. I made Jello shots. There were blueberry, pineapple and cranberry. I would have been ok if I hadn't mixed alcohols myself. The shots were made with Absolute Vodka. When they ran out, my friend decided that we needed to drink the fifth of tequila I had. I only had two shots of that, two vodka sunrises, and maybe 10 Jello shots. I was three sheets to the wind by 8:30. I didn't eat. Smart, huh?

    I somehow fell off my chair on the deck. I only remember everyone trying to help me up and asking how my arm was. I couldn't feel anything then, but yesterday I could barely move it. It's badly bruised.

    I'm not a smoker but I vaguely remember smoking a couple of cigarettes. I think everyone was smoking. I don't remember anything else after that but I'm told that I said I was going to bed at 10pm leaving all of my guests for Mr. Sign to entertain. I remember waking up about a half an hour later (I think) because I needed to throw up. I made it to the bathroom just in time to puke a rainbow. For some reason I decided I needed to take a shower and all I remember is holding on to the bar so I wouldn't fall down.

    Apparently, I was very entertaining because my friend called me yesterday to say what a great time she had.

    Mr. Sign had brought the girls back just in time to see me at my finest. They have never seen me drunk. I hope they never do again since they are still making fun of me.

    I think I got so inebriated because I was sure that will be the last time I drink. Once you have weight loss surgery, it's highly recommended that you don't drink alcohol. I was also trying to keep up with my friend who drinks often.

    I guess I'm not going to be a very good summertime blogger. I just can't bring myself to get on the computer when I can be outside enjoying the weather. I'm not giving up, I just won't post every day. I'll try to visit everyone as often as I can.

    Your life makes me want to take a nap.

    I bet you rock at everything you do.
    May everything you touch turn to gold.

    sounds like you are a great hostess ... I need to go to a signgurl party!

    SignGurl said...

    Sal~ I'll still be around. Just not as much as I used to be. You know I can't stay away from you for long ;-)

    Manny~ My life makes me want to take a long nap. I wish I rocked at everything I do. I just tend not to do the stuff I'm not good at :-)

    DZER~ Let me know when you have your next party. You can book me for the entertainment.

    OMG...dying here.

    I haven't had a drink in years. I live vicariously through my friends and then thank my lucky stars the next morning when they're all dehydrated and miserable.

    I'm so glad you had a GREAT time and that you're enjoying the new summer! I have FOUR MORE DAYS!!!!!!!

    Having been at a party that SG was at you better believe she is a great hostess. I must say however she was not the entertainment that night.

    I didn't know about the drinking thing after the bypass. I guess that makes sense.

    I think it was those darn Jello Shots again, they get you every time. Nothing to do with not eating, no sir.

    You know I hate to say it but you may want to remember that incident for when the girls get older as a reminder that drinking is bad. I am glad your party went well even if you did not make the entire thing.

    I think I see a great girls weekend out some time. You, Buddha Girl, Hippie Chick, Hot Girl, ~Lara, Crabby, Manny ... it could be off da hook! Scarry too. East Coast meets the midwest. Sorry, you got me stuck in party mode.

    Looking forward to seeing you around when ever you can.

    *Blush* Thanks sweetie! XO

    Barman - How about a little love for SoCal. We gets no respect! I got a great connection for the smoothest tequila you ever slammed and a connection up north if you’re into that (Humboldt) LOL

    Suze said...

    I reckon it was that couple of joints you had which pushed you over the edge. And you thought they were just cigarettes.

    It sounds like you were the perfect hostess until 10pm anyway. LOL.

    Hope your head is feeling better. I know exactly what you mean about the conflict between blogging and sitting outside. Summer had finally arrived in the UK. Whoo hoo!

    Puked a Rainbow.
    REminds me of a Skittles ad!!!

    YOu're kids have never seen you drunk?
    Were you afraid that they would be traumatized?
    I think it shows how well they were raised that they were making fun of you.
    It's what kids are supposed to do.
    Go out and enjoy the summer SG, it's what we are supposed to do!

    Big Pissy said...

    You sure know how to have a good time!

    Except for the throwing up part, anyway...

    Glad you're enjoying your summer :)

    Nonny said...

    My stomach flipped just hearing about all that alcohol-ewwww.

    Did you feel better after puking? I always do.

    Post when you can, I'll still check in :)

    MilkMaid said...

    OoooOOooooo puked a rainbow, been there done that.

    LOL..sounds like a good time to me otherwise!

    BTExpress said...

    Sounds like you had a ball. At least this time I hope you kept your clothes on. ;-)

    Pula said...

    Michele in Michigan said...

    Sounds like a very successful party, except for the deckchair incident. And the vomiting. Poor baby! I am holding your head in sympathy!!

    Mone said...
