I drank four screwdrivers on a mostly empty stomach at a country western bar Saturday night and at one point forced a stranger wearing a cowboy hat onto the dance floor.

Oh, shame, thy name is Erin.

The older I get, the more embarrassing this kind of thing is. The guy probably told his friends, Some mom-looking chick in an argyle sweater made me dance.

Argyle. It's hip enough for the Pioneer Saloon.

I also vaguely recall shouting at my friend's mother: Ju-Day! Ju-Day!! Her name is Judy, and I doubt she understands the completely obscure reference to Ju-Day! Because I didn't even remember it and just called my husband to ask. He says it's from a Curb Your Enthusiasm episode.

Thankfully, Judy is pretty damn cool.

Vodka is bad for brain cells.

Hi, Mom!

So yeah. That was a good time. I woke up at 6 a.m. Sunday with the worst headache ever and had to psyche myself up for half an hour just to stumble to the bathroom for aspirin. Then I stumbled back to bed and laid verrrrrrrry very still. It's very important to lie very still in these instances.

I am so healthy.

Oh, and there was a run to Taco Bravo in there somewhere, too, for Taco Delites, which are basically tacos wrapped in burritos. They aren't as delightful as I remember them being.

Oh, and I am pretty sure I yelled Sookie! about four thousand times. Because there was a guy who looked like Bill from True Blood, and I thought my friend should go flirt with him. She did not agree.

So that was that. B-Real's birthday at the Pioneer Saloon, just him and 50 of his closest friends and a handful of baffled regulars wearing cowboy hats and an aging cover band that successfully damaged our collective hearing.

It's how we roll.


  1. Lol! That's awesome! I bet you made his birthday.

    You can keep calling me Sookie. I kinda dig it... and yes you did drag a cowboy onto the dance floor and he LOVED it- heard him talking to his friend about it. Plus he was wearing spurs. Where do you even get spurs these days??! Kinda dug those, too. All in all a fun-filled night!

  3. this was great! sounds a lot like my 30th birthday. We went to a bar in NyC called "The Cowgirl" but we kept calling it The Reverse Cowgirl all night. Much bourbon was consumed. The cowboys were confused. Although I think they might have been gay cowboys... whatevs!


  4. Oh my. Your sister MUST be wrong and you MUST be this funny in person. Why? Because I want to add you to my list of 10 People to Party With Before I Die.


  5. Sookie - Really?? Totally did not notice the spurs but That. is. Awesome.

    MGP - Gay cowboys - even better!

    She Said - Woohoo!! Vegas!
