Cherry Stems

I just told NotCharlotte that I am going to stand around tomorrow night tying cherries stems into knots using only my tongue so the guys in the room know I mean midnight business. I don't want anyone thinking I'm a prude bitch who isn't into the New Years lip-locking festivities because I so am.

I most certainly do not believe in the silly belief that the midnight kiss determines one's luck in love for the next year, but I do believe in the awkwardness that can be created when it seems like everyone else has paired up. I hate that. And really, it's never happened that everyone around me has paired up and I'm left standing there in what I wish would turn into quick sand to swallow me up. Although, if I'm looking on the bright side of things, which I am, I could say that there are two things in this world that I love: champagne and kissing and if I can't be guaranteed the one, I'm going to go all out with the other. Bubbly for me...yes, have some.


Have a super fantastic New Years!!!!

God loves a great Ghostbusters reference.

I was out with three married couples and another dude and we went to the shittiest bar in the history of crappy hookup bars. They played the same old crappy Adams Morgan musak from the 80s and early 90s and it drove me mad. We should have gone back to Saint Ex and stayed there all night.

Ha! I learned the cherry stem trick in a restaurant when I was 8 and mom was horrified! I recently had a contest to see who could do more in one minute with a guy friend. Happy to say I won with six.

Yeah, I made the mistake of one time telling my mom I could do that...I don't know why she was so horrified. Sheesh!
