Music: Kool & The Gang – Get Down On It
Drinking: Hey Mambo 2010 – California Sweet Red
Thank you for the songs that sing and play, you created history…for all the world and for me, I wanna thank you for the joy you gave…
I have had a really crappy day, and a crappy week. Work has been brutal this week, since its my busy week. And just lots of other disappointments, one after another, plus old feelings and emotions being stirred up and brought to the surface that I wish weren’t there. Sigh. But enough about that.
BUT, I was out of milk tonight so no milk and cookies for me. I was not willing to go back out to the store. So this was my snack instead
Been raining here like CRAZY. I finally had to have someone come mow my yard since every time I am home to mow it its been raining. I am convinced my house will fall into a sinkhole.
The other day at work, we were all leaving work and standing outside waiting for the rain to die down to walk to our cars. I was standing with some colleagues under the awning of our large building, and my friend and coworker Julie came out and then upon seeing the rain, went back inside. A few moments later, she came out with her heels off ready to run, and off she went! While we were all being amazed of her bravery, we saw her drop a shoe, but she didn’t know it! We were all screaming JULIE! YOUR SHOE! YOUR SHOOOOOOE! But she didn’t hear. So I had to do what I had to do. I ran out in the POURING TORRENTIAL RAIN and grabbed her shoe and ran it to her car! She was stunned to see me out there with her shoe because she still hadn’t realized she dropped in her run. I was SOAKED!
But happy to be Julie’s blue shoe hero 🙂
So, SKYPE rocks. I just got on, and have discovered like everyone I know is on it! Its been fun. SKYPE me at Naked_Disco! I think I may do a video blog entry soon. What will it be on? Maybe I will tell you. Maybe I wont.
I can’t believe Trivia Night was a week ago tonight! It was Kristin’s 2 year anniversary working for my bestie Jon’s law firm, so we all went out for a meal and drinks, and ended up at Trivia Night in college park.
Every group that plays (the place is always packed with like 20 groups playing trivia) always picks wacky and funny and random team names. Ours was “You’ve Probably Slept with Brandon”, which was a crowd pleaser. Not my idea, but I was a good sport and went along with it of course.
We lost. Sad. But we came in like 4th out of 20. Jon and Jill answered like every question, I was like, how do they know so much?! One of the categories was James Bond, and I told my friends “OH I got this one!” because, if you know me very well, you know I am a HUGE James Bond fan. The question was “What famous redhead played Tiffany Case in Diamonds are Forever?” and thats one of my FAVORITES (my fave being The Living Daylights) and I couldn’t think of her name! I was so mad at myself. But now I will always remember that Tiffany Case was played by Jill St. John.
The next day I couldn’t get off work early enough, because I was meeting Janie, Adrianna, and Christin in Tampa for the FLEETWOOD MAC concert! Well, on my lunch break, I get informed via text that Adrianna’s boss has hooked us up with free rooms at The Hard Rock Casino, with a limo to and from the venue! OMG OMG OMG! So I changed at work, picked up some pink champagne for our rooms and limo, and I was off!
We chilled a bottle super fast and brought it with us in the limo. So cool! I met up with Janie at the venue and we stopped for some quick beers and started catching up before the concert. We were catching up so much we were actually “shushed” by the people behind us. Oops.
The show was amazing. Stevie Nicks stole the show of course, even had on a top hat and a tambourine, and she sand Stand Back! I didn’t think she would sing it because it wasn’t a Fleetwood Mac song, but she sang it! OMG OMG OMG! I was FLIPPING OUT! Hearing her sing that live made everything that had ever gone wrong in my life ok! I love you Stevie! We walked out in a daze. BEST CONCERT EVER!
We got back in our limo and cruised back to the casino, where Adrianna’s boss took us into the VIP Plum Room for food and drinks. They even had milk and cookies!!! OMG! I still got to have my milk and cookies!
We played some slots. I lost, Christin won. Then we followed Adrianna’s boss into the High Bet Room and had some drinks and watched her boss play Baccarat. I watched him for a long time and still have no idea what that game is about. People were betting so much money! I wish they would have bought me a new Fiat.
Then we went up to the room for more pink champagne and had our own little dance party.
Christin went to bed, then in the elevator back down Adrianna and I had this conversation:
Me: Adrianna, how do these amazing random crazy things always happen to us
Adrianna: I don’t know, but its like you and me are touched by something! Everything crazy and cool that never happens to other people always happens to us!
Me: Its so strange how we both have these insane lives, and yet somehow also know each other!
Then, walking out of the elevator, a man walks up to Adrianna with a white rose. He hands her the rose, and says “I will never forget you.” And just walks away.
UM. WHAT was that?! WHO was that?! Where did this rose come from? Why did he have it?! WHAT?! And there you have it my friends, the craziest random things always happen to me and Adrianna. What do you do with a white rose at 3AM in a casino? You take a photo shoot with it of course…
We got back to the High Bet Room to keep Adrianna’s boss company, and ordered a bottle of blush wine (at like 4AM, mind you) from the French Loire Valley. My favorite region for blush wine! GOD it was GOOD. While we were enjoying this EPIC bottle of wine, this pretty woman comes up and I compliment her necklace which had a key on it. While she was explaining it was her grandmother’s necklace, Adrianna was like ‘Wow you have great boobs!” and the woman was like “Oh you can touch them honey, go ahead!” and then Adrianna did. So, yeah, that happened too.
We then went for food at 6AM and make some new friends in the cafe, then we finally called it a night. So many laughs! I didn’t feel so good the next morning…
The next day I cruised on back to Orlando for my paddleboarding lesson! Woot woot!
It was just as fun as the first time! And I still haven’t fallen off! After a quick change in the car, it was off to Lauren and Samir’s housewarming party!
OH what a fun time this was! I saw some of my oldest and closest friends I hadn’t seen in a long time! We talked, laughed, caught up, just talked and laughed for HOURS. After most of the group left, we played Scategories on the patio and listened to the rain.
After many hours there, my chest hurt from laughing. On the way home, a buddy wanted me to stop by The Hammered Lamb for a drink, so I had a nightcap with him and hung out a bit more.
The next morning, back to The Hammered Lamb for brunch! Always wanted to try their food, and omg it was good. Hung out there most of the day and enjoyed a beautiful Orlando Sunday outside. I wrapped up the night at Ember and then called it a night.
Not much has happened this week. Cleaned the house a bit, and put some of my old Louis Vuitton items on Ebay that I never use, and they already sold! YAY!
Something interesting did happen though Tuesday night. So, my buddies Erica and Kiko bought a gym! Congrats to them! SO happy for them. They have this product/treatment stuff they do called It Works! and they are these body wraps that help you tone up and shape up different parts of your body. I don’t consider myself fat or overweight, I am only 135 pounds with a 29 or 30 inch waist, but have had trouble toning up my stomach. I told them I was game to try it out for a weeks, and so Erica came over to wrap me!
So she puts this wrap on me and its like covered in this creme, then wraps me in cellophane to hold it on. It tingled! I could feel it working immediately. In layman’s terms, its this gooey wrap that goes on your stomach, or wherever else on your body you want to put it, and it tones you and makes your fat go away. In actual terms, its:
The Ultimate Body Applicator is a non-woven cloth wrap that has been infused with a powerful, botanically-based formula to deliver maximum tightening, toning, and firming results where applied to the skin.
- Tightens, tones, & firms
- Minimizes cellulite appearance
- Improves skin texture & tightness
- Mess-free and simple to use
- Results in as little as 45 minutes
- Progressive results over 72 hours
- Made with natural ingredients
I kept it on for 45 minutes, and after taking it off, I SAW INSTANT RESULTS! I was amazed! My tummy like, lifted and tightened. Amazing! I am also taking these things called ‘Greens’ that you put in water and drink, which gives you all these minerals and things, and is many many servings of fruit and veggies in this powder form that you drink after putting in water. The next day after my wrap, my stomach and core felt like I had done a full scale core/ab workout! I couldn’t believe it.
I will do 3 more wraps on my tummy over the next 2 weeks. It has now been 2 days since my first wrap and I am STUNNED and AMAZED with how much my stomach has tightened up! I am also eating healthy (although I eat pretty healthy anyhow, minus my milk and cookies) and doing some basic workouts as well to help the process along. My before and afters of this process will be up on a special blog posting for my results of my wraps. I am one excited boy! If I have seen these results in the past 2 days with only 1 wrap, I can’t wait to see what I will look like in 2 weeks from now!
If you want more information on this exciting stuff, email me, Facebook me, come to my house, flag me down on the highway, or like Erica and Kiko’s Facebook page they dedicated solely to these wraps!
Well my blog friends, I am off to rest for another epic weekend. I am going on a 4 hour paddleboard cruise on Saturday! So excited. Plus a nice dinner date that evening 🙂 And booking tickets FINALLY to Paris and Stockholm tomorrow! SO excited. 🙂
Goodnight disco stars, wishing you champagne wishes and caviar dreams
