Famous Last Words

My new diet may have already come to an end. I was at Sash's place for dinner last night. There were candles, nice wine, great music, and the smell of tender lamb shanks cooking happily - but ever so slowly - in the oven. Sash and Denn (pls bear with the 4-letter names now) did a brilliant job of feeding their friends... of whom, i have to add, were 2 other couples, besides me. apparently the 6th guest was m.i.a. so of course i had to fight off Bridgetty feelings before it hit me they were not a) smug marrieds and b) did not in the least bit make me feel like a loony singleton who did not partake in drinking alchohol. speaking of which, i started off drinking Coke and then at some point i was informed it had been spiked with vodka!! it could have been a convenient deviation of topic - from dogs and all things wonderful related to them - or it could have actually been done. whatever the case, i knew something was odd. but i think i'll try to continue this endeavour for as long as i can... only 3 more weeks till the end of the month!!

Oops, there goes your new diet. Maybe it´s a sign from above or something. You know I would have done precisely the same thing - spiked your drink... ha ha!

Sacrilege! vodka with coke? what is the world coming to? Rum and coke, vodka and orange juice (some people swear by vodka and sprite but I've never understood that). Also long island iced tea... mmm...

bridgetty feelings! lol...

Kanika said...

Tsk.. were you eating in honor of Anna Nicole? that would explain the spiked Coke! I'm glad you took my advice, by the way!!

Sash said...

Shilpa, I knew it. I knew it. I knew it. I knew you’d mention Bridget… AGAIN! Instead of alcohol, I think you should cut Bridget/Ally out… at least for sometime. BTW there was no vodka in that Coke but can’t believe you fell for that…

mosilager: i know i prefer vodka w/ OJ too!
neha: yes bridgetty is correct.
kanika: umm, smith died the day after the dinner party. and no, we didn't know she was gonna pop it!
sash: you know me too well! but according to deepesh there was something in the drink. i tend to believe him more than dennis!

Sash said...

Dude, its my house and as shocking as it may sound, there was no vodka. In fact, Deepesh and Dennis were giggling about how you fell for their joke...

Kanika said...

Shilpa said...

Sigh. Rocking life as usual. The last time I asked for a vodka I was given a really stiff one that had me reeling in one drink. I'm having a bad drinks year btw. I think I'll write about that.
