Look at this photograph...every time I do it...makes me drink more martinis...
CB and I went to see Nickelback on Friday night with my brother and SIL. It. Rocked. Bigtime. (Is that cool to say? Having visions of Zeenee saying "ew Mom, No") The drum solo was just awesome (I actually felt like my body was being shaken in an earthquake) and I was reminded that, at 33, I'm still not too old for rock concerts...woot! The band Live opened up for them and they were really entertaining also. My conversation with Zeenee the next morning:

That concert was awesome, you should have come with us.

Eww, no.

What? You don't like Nickelback?

I love Nickelback...but it would NOT be cool to show up with my parents.

((sigh))

Saturday night we attended a house warming party...or should I say a Martini Madness Party

M is for Martini...of which I injested eight...in four hours

A is for Alcohol...90% of a Martini...of which I injested eight...in four hours

R is for Rick & Rhondi's house...where they hosted the party...with the alcohol...90% of a Martini...of which I injested eight...in four hours

T is for Tipsy...which I got after the second drink...at Rick & Rhondi's house...where they hosted the party...with the alcohol...90% of a Martini...of which I injested eight...in four hours

I is for In the chocolate fountain...which is where I wanted to bathe...and CB had to hold me back...cause I was Tipsy...which I got after the second drink...at Rick & Rhondi's house...where they hosted the party...with the alcohol...90% of a Martini...of which I injested eight...in four hours

N is for Noise...which affected me greatly the next day...cause I had rather a large headache...after eight martinis and my near miss in the chocolate fountain...which is where I wanted to bathe...and CB had to hold me back...cause I was Tipsy...which I got after the second drink...at Rick & Rhondi's house...where they hosted the party...with the alcohol...90% of a Martini...of which I injested eight...in four hours

I is for Inching back to good health...on a Tuesday...finally...I can now handle the Noise...which affected me greatly the next day...cause I had rather a large headache...after eight martinis and my near miss in the chocolate fountain...which is where I wanted to bathe...and CB had to hold me back...cause I was Tipsy...which I got after the second drink...at Rick & Rhondi's house...where they hosted the party...with the alcohol...90% of a Martini...of which I injested eight...in four hours


Anyways, I highly recommend the Porn Star and the Sour Apple. Also, the chocolate fountain was the coolest thing. Seems they got it from Costco for about fifty bucks. I would totally buy one if I didn't have a dungeon full of small appliances that I don't use anymore...like my waffle iron, bread maker, food processor, children, George Forman Grill, etc.

The absolute best thing though...is the wonderful friends we have made these last two years through Zeenee's soccer team. Rick is Zeenee's coach (best. coach. ever.) and it was his house we were at. A lot of the other parents from the team were there and both CB and I had a blast. Usually a party like that would find CB hiding in the corner or skulking by the TV pretending to be interested in the "underwater nosepicking channel" while I chat with anyone and everyone...but not this time! We both had interesting conversations with everyone...I guess that all of us having 14 year old daughters leads us to have a lot in common...PMS, MSN, Estrogen, "Ew Mom, No!"...

The team is again going to Victoria in April for a tournament and everybody brings the whole family. This means two nights of partying/whooping it up by the parents whilst the children are free to vandalize, rape & pillage and generally terrorize the hotel (what? We always pick them up from the Juvenile Detention Centre the next day and treat them to ice cream!).

It's almost to the point where the team is staying together for the parents' sake. What's that little Zeenee? You want to try gymnastics next year? No dice girly...you'll play soccer or nothing...and by nothing I mean that you'll play soccer! Don't mess with Mommy's social life!

Desperate to be a Housewife

Time until I'm back with my family: 38 minutes...hoozah!
