The best audience is intelligent, well-educated and a little drunk

Warning!!! This post is likely to make you want a drink or five. I encourage you to read this post two times. Once sober and once with a drink in hand!

With that being said....I hope you enjoy this post. Personally, I enjoyed the preparation for the subject of this post, as it required me to consume a hefty amount of alcohol. By alcohol, I mean wine. I rarely take in the hard stuff, well.......hard alcohol that is =) and beer is reserved for drinking games, Texas BBQs, and dive bars that don't serve wine.
So, now that we have set the mood for this post let me tell you why I got a bit loopy, my Spanish friend Paula had Miriam, her bestest friend of almost 20 years, come to visit her here in Lyon. She is spanish too of course. One spanish girl is wild by herself so imagine when you get two of them together. So they twisted my arm and made me go to Paula's apt, get drunk and then go to a house warming party. I resisted for all of -2 seconds. hehehe. The following group of photos are the events that transpired. And be prepared because I have included live footage of just how strange I am when I get some wine in my system, oh....and also how much of a bad/good influence spanish girls are.

*Paula is on the left. Miriam on the right
*Only one drink down and she is already making faces!
* It didn't take long for Paula and I to follow!
* In my drunken stooper, I think I remember telling her, " In order to take the perfect self-photo, you have to make sure the arm is long and stiff and that the hole is pointed right at your face." HAHAHAHA
*Onto the house warming party.
* I proceeded to show the spanish girls how to get "bobble-headed ghetto bizatch!"
** I think because people at the party kept looking at me like I was foreign....oh wait! I am!"
*SO I showed the example face and made the others try it out. And they had to say "Nuh uh girrrrl!! I know these b*tches ain't starin' at me!?!" at the same time!
*Paula was pretty darn good at it
*And so was Stephane (but he lived in San Antonio for 8 months, so he better know how)

*It took her a few times, but eventually Miriam got it!
*Then she taught us a trick
*And I thought I had a big mouth =(

* They are helpless!

A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside, "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills. ~Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, it is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver. ~Jack Handey

Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza. ~Dave Barry


For each sip I take, I think of you, my friends and family far and near! I'm a caring and thoughtful person so I try to dedicate one sip for each person close to my heart. Also its a quick way to finish a bottle!

Stay tuned for the next post!

This is Veronique, the American formerly known as Ceci...signing out!
