Magic and Other Awesomeness.

Last weekend I made the biggest mistake of my life when I went out drinking. No, I didn't drink & drive.

Instead, on Friday night, I decided to start ordering "alcoholic Shirley Temples." (For those of you that are wondering, this is basically vodka, and grenadine with a lime)

The result was a picture like this on the interwebs:

This photo really is on the internet somewhere other than this blog. I did you the favor of cropping out my bra strap.

And the WORST HANGOVER OF MY LIFE.

So then I convinced S to leave the house so we could go eat this:

So damn delicious. I am not even kidding. Not pictured, a diet coke from the fountain (a post-drinking MUST).

And then I was magically cured from my hangover. Temporarily. (later I barfed)



On to unrelated things, I have somehow gotten on the mailing list for a store called Journey's. This is intriguing because I have never in my life shopped at this store. Ever.

But like I said, I'm somehow on the mailing list. Lucky for them, I flip through just about every catalog that comes to my house and I found this:


I am not a t-shirt person. No real reason. It's just not something I wear unless I am at the gym or pretending that I just worked out or cleaning house. But this shirt is enough to make me want to change my ways.




Jesus, is it Friday yet?

Can I bathe in grenadine? Please.

That shirt needs to be on its way to your mailbox. If you don't get it, I will. ;) I kid. I am broke.

That breakfast needs to be in my tummy now. Sorry you barfed it all up later in the day. :(

At least it is a hot picture, right?

alcoholic Shirley Temples sound amazing...I got a pair of rainbows at Journeys once...they had some snazzy t-shirts that said "Jesus is my homeboy" and also one that said "Mary is my homegirl"

I've never had a hangover in my life. But I have had plenty of "what the hell happened last night and where the hell am I?" times. I guess I didn't inherit the hangover gene, hells yeah! BUT, I hear that greasy foods are the best hangover cures, so it's a good thing you had that big ol' plate of hashbrowns. Mmm...

Glad you're feeling better. That shirt is hilars.

Buffalo Grille is the best hangover cure in the world. Makes me was to fly to Houston and drink a lot so I can go there. Not sure where you cured yours, but your photo reminded me of many mornings spent at Buffalo Grille.

I am so ordering that shirt. For reals.

there is something about diet coke- its like magic medicine. and its always better out of the fountain- however, i have been know to wake up up at 5 am (cuz i can NEVER sleep in when hungover) and crack open a can.
on the plus side- you look like you are a blast to get drunk with...or at least watch get drunk. :)

Emma said...

uh oh....;)
Happy Hump Day!

Fountain Diet Coke along with McDonalds cheeseburgers is my hangover cure...love the t-shirt

Are those biscuits and gravy?! I hope you are feeling better now - I know nights like that can take a few days to recover from :)
AND that shirt is AWESOME

Elizabeth Marie said...

Shut up! Diet coke and biscuits and gravy?? You are my hero.

Ams said...

Omgosh that shirt is hysterical! Love it :) I am buying it... definitely!

At least I'm skinny said...

At least you're smiling. When I get drunk I make the absolute ugliest faces in the world to go with my ridic hand gestures.

I've never had alcoholic shirley temples but I did have a similarly bad experience with crystal light sweet tea and vodka and ended up taking about 30 pictures where I'm trying to look like a gangster because I was in Atlanta. Yeah, didn't work out that great for me.

And I own the above mentioned Mary is my Homegirl t-shirt but it is too small because I'm not 16 anymore but I keep anyway.

Emily Marie said...

omg I crave the most fattening, fried, greasy food ever when I'm hungover. And then I feel even shittier after.

Cee said...

I am leaving you something on my blog!

Hailey {HRH} said...

Let's just discuss how awesome this post is.

1. Owning the fact that you got drunk. (I get hate comments every.single.time. I mention having a beer.)

2. I want to be buried in biscuits and gravy.

3. Posting that picture of yourself to' up is rad. (I did this once when I was in Chicago and got a hate email.)

4. Please buy that shirt.

This whole post is indeed MAGIC.
