Enjoy your kids, you skinny bitch...

A. There is no contempt in that statement (at least from my end).
B. It is in reference to something that happened last night.

So, let me tell you about last night...and the craziness that ensued and how I'm paying for it this morning.

About a week ago, I was sitting in Maria's apartment reading the Westword. It was their "Best of Denver" edition and I wanted to see the things I was missing out on. After realizing that the Cricket had been ripped off for not having the best burger in town, I stumbled across the Best $5 Manicure and $5 Martini night. What? There is such a thing? In Denver? It was too good to be true.

Club Evolution, a local dance club here in Denver, offers $5 Martinis and $5 Manicure Mondays. Every Monday night, you can sip your favorite martini and have a cheap (with no polish) manicure. We had to go try it out. Maria, Sara, Vivian, and I drove over last night and crazy is the only word I can use to describe what happened.

There were like 5 people there when we arrive and 5 people when we left. The manicurists were slowly becoming drunk, and the bartender was an ass. The two other people, Chris (an off duty bartender) and Brett (a beautiful man in a beautiful leather jacket), helped out, but it was crazy. We connected with these people. We invited them into our worlds, and they invited us into theirs (that's mostly because Sara is the most beautiful soul you will ever meet and being around her just opens space in your soul).

Finally, we left around 12:30 because I desperately wanted to get to bed and didn't express that real well until we were in the car driving home (I need to realize that my desires aren't bad and aren't entirely crushing to others...I struggled again with that last night). By the time I crawled into bed, it was past 1:00 am, and getting only 5 hours of sleep is not helpful. Neither is the headache I felt this morning due to lack of sleep, but that's besides the point.

So to Lacey, Mary, Brett, Chris and Billy who helped make Monday, April 4th the most random damn night we had had in the longest time, thank you. We'll be back again soon...
