As you read my blog, you’ll need to know my cast of characters. I talk about them all the time, so take a moment to acquaint yourself. Click on the name above the description for insight.
My Partner In Crime, my bestie who knows me better than I know myself. Our outings are always epic. Or at least they are in our heads. Either way there will be singing, eating, drinking and laughter….lots of laughter.
My GPS. She used to give me direction. Now she just chirps randomly and wants me to go to hotels. I think she is drunk. I think she needs rehab. Why Lola? Well, PIC named her. She bears an uncanny resemblance to the Lola from Copacabana, minus the whole dead boyfriend bartender thing. (Go ahead and sing the song, you know you want to.)
My phone. She is always out to sabotage me. Svetlana is exactly what her name implies: a bad ass who speaks her mind regardless of consequence.
My parent’s dog. She is half sausage link, half Pomeranian. She is growly and bitey. She tried to take off my pinky twice. Once I deserved it, once could have been retribution for taking into the backwoods and making her brave a monsoon.
Sprout is my nephew. He came early and he looks like a bean sprout…hence his name. He was 3 lbs and change when he was born, but with the heart and lung of a fighter. He stole my heart. And peed on me. But I still find him adorable.
Bianca is my crazy ass “friend”. I don’t like her and I think after I went all postal on her, she has vacated my life. However, when she returns like the bad penny always does….you should know who she is.
Taylor is a little polly-pocket of sass. You don’t mess with her….. she’s all of 5 feet tall, 115 lbs, but she’ll take you down – in her pearls and cardigan. She is sweet and southern, with an accent to match. She is the kind of lady who is quiet and reserved until she knows you….or has vodka…but that’s a whole other set of stories.
