need a boost?

Monday, February 16, 2009

a nice relaxing weekend in canton, ohio was just what i needed. my sissy was even home! it was the perfect combination of family and friend time.

after a big fat greek valentine's day dinner at my uncle david and tia jo's house i left the fam and met up with j-birdie and keter-o (who were in from columbus), at big city chop house where they were wrapping up dinner with keter-o's parents.


we all wanted to go out and meet our friends but we weren't so keen on where they were.


you see my friend nick is a wrestling coach at a local high school and my friend biscuit is a part of the wrestling team's booster club so because two of our good friends were putting this event together we felt obligated to attend. at least it was for a good cause right?

but when j-birdie and i walked into the athletic club i couldn't do anything but awkwardly laugh. i was completely out of my element. while i was rocking my cute dress and hot designer shoes, the moms around me had horrible chunked highlights and were wearing crocs.

thank god for my friends being there. them and the keg of beer and $1 tequila shots.


we gambled a bit, drank some keg beer and ended up doing the cuban cupid shuffle on the dance floor.

i can blend in anywhere - seriously, it's a gift.

there was one itty bitty little thing that summed up the entire wrestling booster club monte carlo night at the athletic club for me.

the one image that anyone could look at and think, oh i've been there. i've the eaten canned green beans on a styrofoam plate.


the FRANZIA BUFFET...

making booster club events sexy since 1982.

  1. I had to check twice to be sure that this is what I thought it was.

    Mmm, tequila.

  2. Wow. Thats alot of Franzia.

    but $1 tequila shots would make it totally ok.

    because tequila makes everything totally ok.

  7. Alexa-

    I found your blog through Chef's Widow and I read it pretty regularly. It cracks me up pretty much daily! Thank you for that!

    I work in College Athletics which includes wrestling and trust me, it is a different breed of people. It can be best described in two words: Black. Jeans.

    Write on, sister!

  9. HA boxes of wine! Growing up that is all my parents drank until they discovered wine actually comes in a bottle.

  10. Franzia buffet? Sign me up!

    One of my best drunk stories is the result of a night of getting cozy with a box of Franzia. Let's just say it involved me leaving my glasses behind and not realizing it for several hours. (They are very necessary for me to see).

  11. Ahh, my old friend Franzia. I haven't seen him in so long -- since my college days. I used to carry him in a coffee to-go mug and take him to parties. He was a real pal.

  12. Hahaha, thats hilarious. Sounds like some small town events that occur in my hometown. Were there any mullets?

    I agree the tequila would have made it better.

  18. OMG. That picture of the Franzia seriously just made me LOL.

    "Give me 6 Schlitzes! Well, whatever's free then!"

  19. Don't drink that Franzia. If you have to get boxed wine go for "Black Box".

  20. Franzia bar is the best idea ever. Must have one myself.

    ReplyDelete
  21. ROFL!! that Franzia is hilarious. I must admit.. that was my first alcoholic beverage.. my dad would keep it around for "fancy" nights with him and my mom and would store the box in the fridge in the garage... so my first drink?? straight from the spout. Class. I've got it. hahahha

  22. the only thing better than a boxed wine buffet is doing boxed wine stands! (think keg stands)

    ps- 90s on 9 is the best to listen to at work... until "lets talk about sex" comes on. not so appropriate.

  24. Ugh, Franzia? No thanks. Life's too short to drink shitty wine.

  25. haha, i totally thought it was the cuban shuffle, and tagged a photo of one of my friends doing it on facebook. learned in the comments to the photo that's it's "cupid." WHO KNEW?

  26. Surprisingly, that picture makes me think that a wrestling gettogether is somehow even less classy than I'd imagined.
