Over New Years Adam and I were more entertained by the characters we encountered then anything else really.
Stopping in at French Lick Winery on the way up we encountered the skeeviest couple ever. you know how some people just emit that skeezy vibe? Blech this guy was one of them, and of course they sat next to us at the little cafe. When his wife/lover/mistress got up to go to the bathroom he promptly whipped out his cell phone and dialed someone whom he called sweetheart the whole time, true it could have been his "daughter" I guess. Then when the WLM came back from the restroom he greeted her with a *SKEEZ ALERT* "hello lover" and I promptly threw-up in my mouth. Then she said she noticed she had something in her shirt. Rico Suave asked her if it looked like a pearl and it didn't matter because it would be on the floor later anyway. That's when I took the fork and gouged my eyeball out. He so reminded me of quagmire.
If only it stopped there! At the New Years gala, we were assigned tables and being the first at our table to arrive I began thinking of the other interesting people we were going to sit with, as I looked around and saw the other attendees chatting it up and shaking hands with their new pals for the night.
The first to arrive was a family of three straight outta NASCAR country. The wifey complained the whole time about the yucky appetizers (oysters and lobster!) and how she wanted more "pop". She also complained that she was so bored. I'm sorry was the 9 piece band, actors dressed up in zoot suits and flapper gear not enough for you? Sorry theres no WWE on.
Then two lesbian couples sat down at the table. Well since they knew each other they pretty much kept to themselves. The waitstaff brought out salad which had bacon in it and one of the lesbians was a vegetarian so they got pissed and left. Sweet.
So its us and the rednecks. Well mom is finally bored enough and cant wait to get to the casino so they leave. And it's just me and Adam all by ourselves.
Around 11, we decide that we are indeed lame and go back up to the hotel room to...(are you ready for this??) NAP before the big balloon drop and champagne toast at midnight. I was terrified we'd sleep right on through.
We didn't though, and we had our sweet new years kiss and I was even able to convince Mr. No Rythem (Adam) to dance with me.
