I've got friends in low places...

...why aren't I there with them. Dammit.

Two of my nearest (in my heart -- alas, not geographically) and dearest gal pals were each enjoying some adult beverages this afternoon in their respective corners of the world... and I got to talk to them both on the phone in the throes of their alcoholic fun.

What a riot.

They were adorable.

And I'm jealous, not only because I'm not drinking tonight -- I'm actually reorganzing shit around the house and deploying some new slimline hangers to try and save space in my 1950s storage-challeged bedroom closet (yes, I live a life of unparalleled glamour. Please try to control your envy.), but because I'm not hanging out with either of them.

However, my NC galpal arrives here on Sunday for a week. Hooray! And I'm going to see my MD galpal next month. Hooray again!

But for a girl who thrives on instant gratification, this isn't really cutting it for me. I'm about to dip into my wine coolers (shut. up.) to help sustain me during my domestic frenzy tonight. And who knows... I might get spirited enough to partake in my favorite drunk communication pasttimes: drunk dialing and, best of all, drunk IMing.

You've been warned.

Cheers!

I made some phone calls right after having dental surgery once, which I've been told were rather hilarious...what they could understand of it, since my mouth was stuffed with cotton. Hoo boy...

You mention wine coolers...have you found ACTUAL wine coolers, just like from the 80's? All I find when I look for them is "malt beverages". I don't drink much (as in I haven't had a drink in a decade or more- hubby works at a very, very conservative church and his terms of employment include a no alcohol clause for him, as for me drinking alone doesn't hold much charm) but if I could find the real deal wine coolers, I'd have to indulge in a few.

mental mosaic -- I've done similar things while under the influence of pain killers after a procedure. It's SO much fun to hear about things like that after the fact, isn't it...

and Sherrie -- I think what I drink are basically the malt beverages, as opposed to authentic '80s wine coolers -- like the kind the two old Bartles & Jaymes dudes used to pitch. I'm going to be on the lookout for those now that you've tweaked my memory.
