It is early Monday morning. I am in bed at spiceboy's mom's house in Pittsburgh. My terrible cold is mostly gone, with the the help of massive amounts of antibiotics and water.

Tonight I had my bachelorette party. At first, I was very resistant to any sort of traditional shower or bachelorette party, so my wonderful and very patient friends threw me a Ho-Down instead. What's a Ho-Down, you ask? Well, the idea was birthed a couple of months ago at a group booze-fest we held at Otto in NYC. Why is it called a Ho-Down? We don't know. But it sounds better than "bachelorette party", right?

Basically, the Ho-Down involved massive amounts of the things I love best: champagne, cheese, chocolate (in the form of a dark chocolate fountain), and lots of hilarious pooping stories.

By the end of the night, I was wearing a cowboy hat, a handmade veil, a shirt that said "69" (which was justified b/c it is the year of spiceboy's birth), and a banner that said "bitch, please" (my favorite slogan ever).

Please forgive me if this post isn't making much sense. I'm just drunk enough that I can't tell (but not too drunk to try to post!).

Was it a great party?

It was soooooo a great party.

I can't believe the wedding is in 5 days.

now did someone OWN this fabulous fountain of chocolate? or did you have to rent it? wouldn't it be lovely to have a chocolate fountain in the garden or the living room at all times?

That cold you had? I've got it now. 5 days until Cuba. Can you believe it?! This goddamned thing transcends countries and provinces as well as the internet.

Yeah right. As if there weren't 8,451,256 people in my office sick with it.

Mmm... that might be an exaggeration.

YUM! Champagne, chocolate and CHEESE! I'm so jealous, yet so happy for you because it sounds like the best ho-down ever (from this point on it shall be known as BHDE). Will be in NYC for my new ink soon! Don't forget! Would love to have a night at Otto with you, Spiceboy, Shorty and AM! Food and wine galore! I'm so excited for the two of you and can't wait to hear stories and see pictures of what I'm sure will be a most glorious day! Love you! I mean it!

PS...tell Spiceboy I'm planting the hot peppers this week. I'm still gonna take him up on that hot sauce offer!
