In Over My Head.....

….officially.

So what the fuck else is new though, really?

Ahem...

Weekend sum up:

Tim Hortons.
Glitter, feathers, corsets, high heels, high kicks, high, high, high……
Repeat.
Gin, vodka, cranberry gingerale, Lucky Lager, Burt Reynolds in a shot glass.
Repeat.
Repeat.
2 hours of sleep…..in a sleeping bag…with no pillow…on the floor.
Smitty’s.
Value Village…..oh yes.
Strippers at 4pm.
Thinking….”I could do that….”
Realizing…”I could do that….better…”
Vodka and Red Bull.
Duran Duran, Culture Club, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Billie Joel, Bon Jovi, The Police, Pat Benatar, Madonna, George Michael, Sting, Aerosmith….and MJ. Oh MJ……
Big hair, bad make-up, boobs, booty and a bunch of bad-ass chicks...rockin out.
Gin.
Gin.
Gin.
3 hours of sleep…..in a sleeping bag….with no pillow…on the floor.
Rain, rain, rain…..Tim Hortons…..the highway…….
Home Sweet Home.
Big smile.
Big sigh.
Back to reality.

School is a blog for another time. For now, I am grateful for gin, girls and glitter…and John Mayer…….

And so it goes…..
