The (28 Days) Slumber Party

Tonight, the besties, Misses W and S (respectively) are coming over for a slumber party. We are going to braid each other’s hair and paint our toenails and eat weight gain portions of snack food. We are going to laugh and facebook stalk and play truth or dare.

We are going to watch the movie 28 Days. Because 28 Days has The Immortal Quote that will forever be remembered in the annals of treatment movie history. See, you addicts out there have probably heard the sermon that if you want to have a successful relationship with a, like, nother human, you have to first buy a plant and keep it alive for a year. If you can do that, move on to an animal. After another year, if it is still alive and kicking, you may then cautiously think about having a relationship with another person. Two years is a long time to go without another person’s affection, and poor Gerhardt just wants to get some:

Shop Owner: Sir, I can't replace the plant just because you killed it.
Gerhardt: I did not kill this plant, it was sick or something. I gave it everything. I was talking to it, telling it stories. I drew a sketch of it, and put it on my refrigerator.
Shop Owner: Did you water it?
Gerhardt: I-- I have-- It's important that I did not kill this plant, you understand? So if you're just saying that because that's how you're making your excuse, you have got to understand-- You can't mess with-- I'm never gonna get laid. [Sobs] You obviously don't care. And that's one thing I do, is care. I feel sorry for all the plants in here. I'm going home.

Hope you all have a happy Friday as well! :) And, if you haven’t yet seen 28 Days, put it on the list.
Smooches.

I LOVE that movie!!! I was thinking of it today even! Everyone was telling me that they were going to work in their garden this weekend and I was thinking to myself, "I can't keep a plant alive, but I have a healthy pet for 6 years. Does that mean I'm ready for a relationship?" he he he he

I also love when Gerhardt is wearing a sign that says "No male contact" (or something to that effect). It reminds me of those signs Espra always made her patients wear. ha ha!

"And now... Santa Booze"
I really really REALLY think that we should talk to the powers that be to get some of those Lectures started.. "Are you a blackout drunk?... or don't you remember?"
"What's wrong with celebrating sobriety by getting drunk?"..."How many braincells did I kill last night?"
Loved our movie night... Heart you.
