My roommate knocked on my door and said "Come and look at something. I don't know if you'd like it."
And in the living room, she had placed a light up statue of the Virgin Mary, complete with glowing wings, lighting up in random colors.
And I was like "Wowwwwww."
So I showed her the gorgeously tacky Mexican painting of the Holy Mama that I had purchased at my favorite 99 cent store and we hung it up behind the statue.
We had a moment, people.
Bonding over tacky religious icons and art. It doesn't get better that this.
Last night, in an effort to save money, I joined Miss Rubyroo for drinks and party games at her house.
Being on an empty stomach, I of course was pretty much laminated* by the third drink. Had Ruby known what state I was really in, I doubt she would have given me money and sent me out into the street in search for pizza. But I did, stumbling in a most classy fashion.
I think the night pretty much ended for me when I, for some reason, crawled on the floor from the living room to the kitchen and just kind of lied down.
I have spent my last dime until pay day on groceries and laundry today. I think I have about $4.77 to last me till then.
I love this city. And I do mean that.
And I love my girls. And I mean that even more.
(*my brand new euphemism for "drunk." Use it. Go forth.)
