I tried to be a hermit on Sunday, especially since I was so tired after coming back from Temecula and the strangeness that is "the Inland Empire". Different world, I tell ya. I was rationing my phone battery since I broke my charger so even better reason not to take calls or txt ppl back, right? I was all set. I was going to STAY HOME! Yes!!!!
8pm comes and Tracy calls. I should probably answer to let them know that I won't be coming. I hear 5 different crazy voices hollering in the background making it sound like a PARADE is going on. Or some crazy house party. Which it obviously is. Then Rob gets on the line and nothing short of orders me over "There are a bunch of crazy asian women attacking me! You have to come and help me!" I mentally rotate who it is I can't say no to at any given moment and today it was Rob.
So 30 minutes later and what I consider slightly reckless driving (changing lanes in front of other cars), I arrive at Joy's and Alice is on her cell. I walk into the backyard and see Karin! OKAY how are MY real life friends at Joy's house WITHOUT me?? Hahaha! Oh Lord what a blessing it is to have a woman in my life that opens her arms to both me AND my friends without a second thought. I love you Joy!! So I was quickly sandwiched by everyone in a slightly uncomfortable-body-rubbing-fashion and got a lot of kisses.
Walking around I noticed a decanter with some funny looking glasses on the patio table. Apparently LA Core Crew decided to do SCOTCH AND CIGARS before I came (which granted was like 9pm). Splutter - what a cool evening I was soooo upset they had done this without me although I suppose a sip of scotch would have made me violently ill. Ah well, it looked so luxurious and fun!!
Karin went back to kicking Nayil's ass at pool and I went into the kitchen to get something to eat. Karin came and joined me and while munching on chips and I saw someone come into the house out of the corner of my eye but thought it was Nayil admitting defeat.
So Sheila, Ragnar and I sat down to eat while the others drifted in. I hear the doorbell ring and go to answer it - I can't quite see who it is - just a petite girl so I open the door hoping this person isn't packing or anything. I know I'm paranoid, I grew up in NY remember?!?! IT'S CHEREESE!!!! WOOHOOO!!! What a great evening!! I love that she always comes out when invited, even if just for a few hours!! I had the opportunity to grill Chereese about some of my old fave pasttimes, which included hiphop clubs and we didn't quite get to spoken word stuff yet before different conversations started breaking out.
And we ended the night in the backyard. THE END.
