.. OH, LAST NIGHT..
Last night was so incredibly amazing. And so needed. OHMYGOD, I NEEDED IT.
I met the gals at Surin of Thailand for food and THE MOST AMAZING ALCOHOLIC DRINKS EVER. Seriously. We’re all pretty stout and regular drinkers, and after a few sips, we were all slurring and laughing entirely too loud. (I highly recommend their pomegranate martini.. I easily could’ve had three, if I could’ve remained sitting upright.)
After dinner, we realized we were WAY late for our next appointment, so we all hurried to our balcony seats at a local production of “The Miracle Worker”. The little girl playing Helen (Keller) had me in TEARS through most of the show. Her movements and complete immersion into the role tugged on the heartstrings of every mother in the audience. Jesus, she had me as a wreck. She totally stole the show and was fantabulous and I cannot say enough good things about her.
After that, we all went home.
I know, right? Sounds kinda lame, kinda boring? No big adventures, no big stories to tell? But here’s the thing: I am friends with some of the wittiest, most hysterically awful people on the planet. And stick us all at a table and feed us alcohol? Oh, it was amazing. I laughed to the point of crying several times. Ronda and I rode together and decided that next time, we are totally going to film it.
Some of the snarkier things to happen during the night:
We called the House Manager of the theatre because 1) we were running late and 2) we know him and we’re the kind of biatches to totally pull strings in our favor. Ronda’s calling him, and I’m driving. “Tell him we’re coming to see that girl play Annie Potts!” (Sadly, I was serious. And probably drunk. DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE, KIDS.)
Steph, one of the founding members of The Coven, is actually a very skilled American Sign Language interpreter. During the show, she and Ronda would take turns spelling into eachother’s hands. Since Ronda and I are NOT ASL masters, we only know a few words.. namely, “vagina”, “burger”, “fucking”, and “bitch”. Really, that gets us as far as we need to go.
Flava Flav sat behind us. It was either him or Charles Barkley.
We got to check out Jamie’s Fabulous Cabinosity. I know, it’s hard not to be jealous.
I learned how to say “beautiful” in Korean.
It was just a few hours, but seriously, that might just sustain me for a little while.
Until our next meeting of The Coven.
