for those of you who haven't been reading my drunken FB status updates Fringes

Our best friend Emily, of best-friends-Emily-and-Nicki fame, passed her dissertation defense today. I opened the $120 bottle of Destiny Bay Mystae (2005– frickin' YUMMY) and one of two remaining bottles from our wedding reception, a Gloria Ferrer blanc de noirs sparkling wine. Hello, major drinks before a non-existant dinner. I mean, there were some hors d'eourves, but I didn't have lunch and as notetaker at Emily's defense, didn't get a full bag of the delicious Atkins-farms appetizers. You would not have believed the good tastingness of the butterscotch cookies. Mmmm…

Anyway, Nick and Em and Mary beat it as soon as I put Lex to bed, which was a pity, because I wanted to sing “Mogen David,” which is really called “In the Midnight Choir” by the Gatlin Brothers and is the song that my family sings to commemorate a singular or drunken evening (this was both).

Instead, I called Emily and had her put me on speaker. So, now Nick and Em know the chorus, though I've not heard them sing it. They have been warned that it will be sung again one month and a day from now at a certain luncheon we shall all be attending.

Gonna need a designated driver for that one, I think…
