Renew Years

While I was traipsing across the country this past week, plans were being hatched to redo New Year's Eve with me present. So, feet firmly planted on the ground in Virginia, NotCharlotte, NotCarrie and a host of other characters whisked me off to the quaint town of Fredericksburg to a bar that feels like home. What transpired was truly another quintessential "Fred" night. We quickly picked up a couple of guys to add spice to the evening and hopefully provide the midnight kisses for our "renew" year's celebration. One was a friend of NotCarrie's, NotDreds, and the other we'll call NotShy. NotShy quickly ingratiated himself to the Nots by telling us how hott we were and offering to round up a bevy of boys for our choosing. Unfortunately, NotShy proceeded to hit up the sketchiest of patrons as we tried to shrink into the shadows. Several drinks later, NotShy still continued to entertain us by dancing, taking our pictures, etc. Things got hilarious when he hung a dollar out of his pants and told me it was my mission to find someone to get it. I'm such a bad friend because the first thing I did was gesture to NotCharlotte and tell him I'd try the blonde. Turns out NotCarrie isn't that great of friend either because we both hazed NotCharlotte until she used her pearly whites to grab that dollar. Yes, I did catch it all on film. NotShy must have suffered from some kind of Cinderella syndrome though because he completely disappeared a few minutes before the witching hour. Seriously, he vanished. Was he a figment of our hyped up imaginations? Perhaps he was just bummed he lost his last dollar to NotCharlotte.

I do believe I was pretty charming last night.

Yes, ladies, pick your men! Just don't pick the ones we're going to bid on ;-)

You never said if you got your kisses at midnight. It sounds like you should have a reNew Year's Eve once a month.

You know I almost forgot about this ...

It's pretty cool to see all the guys who volunteered. "Here's to you Mr. Bachelor Auction Volunteer Guy".

And ladies - open up those trendy, designer label purses! Oh, and as for me, feel free to contact me before you bid/buy if you want to know a little more.

Good job NotLadies!

Churlita- *I* definitely did NOT get my re-new years kiss and was quite disappointed about it. I think I even sulked for a moment.

Px- Bidding on you will be the perfect reason for me to finally get that passport.
