I started out my day by listening to Alanis Morissette's "Unplugged."
It is SO hard to believe that this shit is over 10 years old. 10 years!!!! It feels like just yesterday I was sitting in my dorm room in Morgan Hall watching this with Ramsey, Shannon, and DC Doug. So crazy. I was talking with DC Doug the other day about how certain albums bring you right back to a certain time in your life and no matter what, every Alanis album does that for me. I can remember when Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie came out I went to Target right after my morning classes and bought it, ran home, and had it on repeat for a good year. Under Rug Swept is so January of 2002 for me - downloading the songs before anyone else had them and waiting in line for Alanis and Nysnc tickets to see them at the Olympics. 2004 when So-Called Chaos came out it was me living in Salt Lake and watching all 8 hours of her Oxygen special and having Spencer and Lorissa bring me orange juice while I waited over night to meet Alanis...it's pretty special to have an artist who is just a total time machine for you. I j'adore her.
What a weekend!!!!
Friday night Benji's boyfriend and I had a "date" and I was introduced to my new favorite restaurant, Westville. We then attended a game night a Vanessa's house where I, yet again, rocked in Celebrity. I don't know that I've lost a game of Celebrity in the past 20 times I've played - I'm THAT awesome. Friday night was the impending SNOW OF DOOM and we got.....a mere dusting. Seriously. It was melted by Saturday morning. What a letdown.
Saturday afternoon More-O and I treked to CT to attend a wine tasting with his family. It was such a fantastic time and I had a blast "tasting" many, many wines, hanging with More-O and his fam, and singing Billy Joel at the top of our lungs. Won't forget that night any time soon.
Sunday was David's annual Super Bowl party and while I'd heard stories about this epic event, I don't know that I was prepared for the amazingness that I encountered. I was told that we would all be participating in a "Power Hour" before the game started (game? There was a game?) According to Wikipedia.com, a "Power Hour" is is a drinking event where every player drinks one shot of beer every minute.
More-O was quite excited for this.
I however, was a tit bit nervous. Would I be able to complete it? Would I puke? What would happen? Here was the start of the Power Hour:
And, after 60 minutes, many songs ("I AM NOT FROM FRANCE"), and someone spitting his beer up at minute 51 (ahem More-O), Power Hour ended.
And that's only half of the beer bottles/cans.
Seriously, ya'll, I felt like I was birthing an alien baby.
But luckily all the beer stayed in and I wasn't even messy! It was a fantastic evening (apparently the Saints won? Who?) and it was spent with even more fantastic people.
