Meet drunk me

I have this crazy alter ego when I drink. I get very confident, I don't care about anything in the world and I love to have fun at any expense. Yep that's me, the sometimes annoying girl at the bar, but typically very well behaved. That is of course, unless I am on vacation.

I was debating on which Key West story I was going to begin with, but settled on my night out our first night there. After a four hour flight, four hours of driving from Ft. Lauderdale to Key West and no sleep a night out was in order. Upon checking into our hotel, we headed out to the local "strip" called Duvall Street. Apparently Duvall was the place to be if you were in search of night life in Key West. There were so many bars and even places to pick up a quick drink as you walk up and down the street.

Not sure what to do, we picked up some drinks and walked down this notorious street. We gazed at cute little shops and picked out some local bars we knew we just had to go into. After about 2 hours of walking we settled in a bar called The Lazy Gecko. This bar wasn't anything fancy, just a little local place that was playing amazing music. We walked to the bar and little did we know, it was ladies night! I love ladies night, and in all honesty it can get me into trouble.

I ordered my staple, Captain and Coke, and downed the first one with ease. Uh-oh, trouble is comin. I continued to drink them one after one and found myself with a great buzz. I started dancing with strangers and probably making a fool of myself. I held a conversation with some guy and can't honestly remember what we talked about. I told a girl all about Oklahoma and how we in fact did not live in tee-pee's or use buggies or transportation. But that is just the beginning.

*Ladies, jump on the bar and get a free shot*

Wow, all three of my friends were convinced that I needed to climb onto the bar. As if I wasn't buzzed enough, I apparently needed a free shot. So, I did. I hoped up on the bar (for the first time in my life) and danced my little heart out. I danced like no one was watching, but I did in fact know they were. I'm sure eventually I will be on their wall of pictures as being apart of the crowd of bar dancers.

I will say, I was probably the most reserved girl on the bar. There was of course the attention getters who thought that making out with one another was exactly what needed to be seen. Granted they tried to pull me in, but I was in my own little world. I didn't want to be THAT girl. And it's not like attention mattered, drinks were free for the ladies.

When the song was over I was so happy to jump fall off the bar and get my next drink. Needless to say, the walk back to the hotel room was very entertaining, especially since it was 5:30 a.m.

I swear I'm alive

Sorry I haven't written!

I had an amazing time in Key West! But, soon as I got back from my glorious vacation I came down with an insane sinus infection.

I was so sick that today was the first day I have been back to work. If you know anything about me, you know that I like to save my sick days for "personal health days." I really hate actually using them for being sick. So, it was no bueno the last week.

Even today I am not feeling 100 percent and could have honestly stayed home happily. Unfortunately I ran out of leave and had to make myself come back to work.

So there you have it, I have been insanely sick. I have been wanting to tell some of my amazing vacation stories but it has all been put on hold for the moment. Hopefully I feel better tomorrow and will be in the story telling mood.

I hope you all have been doing great and I miss you all!

Leaving on a jet plane ...

... and I'll be back in a few days.

Well, I leave Thursday, but close enough. Yep folks, it is FINALLY time for my vacation. I thought it would never get here. I am so used to taking a trip in July, that waiting until November seemed like forever.

But, it is finally here and I will be heading to sunny Key West, Florida. I plan on sitting on the beach, maybe some para sailing, having some delicious fruity drinks and seeing the speed boat races. Sounds like fun, right?

So, that means I will not be here for awhile. I will leave you with a Wordless Wednesday tomorrow and you probably won't hear back from me until Tuesday or Wednesday. I hope ya'll enjoy the rest of your week, because I will mine.

I'm an airhead baby, so why don't you pop me

Have you ever had those moments where you feel like a complete moron? Those moments where you look someone blankly in the face and have no idea what you are doing, often called airhead moments?

Well, I had one of those yesterday.

I don't know if it is was because it was very early in the morning and I had very little sleep, or if it was because I was at the doctor but I completely lost it. Upon arrival I had this form to fill out, to update my information in their system. You know, it was the basic stuff like name, address, emergency contact, and phone number oh shit phone number.

I blanked.

Seriously, I completely forgot my own phone number. It's not like this was a brand new number, it's not like I just got it yesterday. In fact, I have had this number for years and years and I couldn't remember.

So what did I do?

I wrote down the first number I could think of. And what was it? It was a phone number my family had probably 7 years ago. Yep, I thought of a number from 7 years ago, but couldn't think of my own.

I didn't even realize what I had done until I handed the paper over to the receptionist and she asked me for a second number. Oh shit, another number I thought about it for a second and then, get this, I told her one of my first cell phone numbers. AHHHH!

Luckily, I saved myself and said wait no, that isn't a good one use this one, and gave her my correct number. Such a sly cover-up don't you think? At least she has one line she can reach me at.

So there you have it, my airhead moment of the week. And since I love hearing from my readers, I have to ask you ... what's one of your airhead moments?

Hands in the air, this is a stick up

Yesterday while sitting at work I received a text message that simply said "I was robbed today." Not only did the text say that, but it was from my sister. So, needless to say, the mom in me came out and I started calling her hysterically. Not one, not two, but three phone calls later she finally picked up.

I asked her what happened and she didn't seem the least bit scared, she was laughing. She told me that someone robbed the bank the she works at. She just happened to be the lucky teller. Apparently when he walked in she had this feeling that he was going to rob her. She said that she started praying in her head for him not to hurt her and for this not to happen.

Immediately upon reaching the counter the mad said something. My sister didn't understand him and asked what he said. Apparently that is when he pushed a note in her faced asking for the money. I asked her if she hit the emergency button, but apparently her bank doesn't have one. Their policy is to hand over the money and as soon as the robber leaves to call 911. So that's what she did. She handed him the money and he threw it in a Dollar General sack (he probably found it while walking to the bank).

After the man got the money he took off running. I can't believe that he didn't even have a get away car. So how much did he get away with? $2,400. Yep, that's it. Apparently the bank doesn't keep much in the their drawers. My sister told me if he would have robbed the teller next to her, he would have made off with much more because she hadn't cashed her drawer yet.

So all-in-all it is a scary situation and I am more than grateful that she was all right. I really hope that the man gets caught. But, my sis will forever more have an awesome story to tell.

*The pictures are surveillance photos from the bank. That is the back of my sister's head.

This is not cool!
