Ladies’ night

June 10, 2002

somewhere in las vegas there is a young man with one less pair of flannel boxers in his closet, a hotel maintenance man cursing the brightly colored feathers clogging up the industrial vacuum, and a bartender who learned to make a new cocktail thanks to the expertise of some ladies who came by on a mission.

this is the aftermath left by over a dozen young women running rampant in the city of sin to celebrate their dear friend/cousin/sister’s last weeks being single. a bachelorette party of monstrous proportions.

i confess i was a part of it. i was one of the annoying girls who giggled and pointed and spoke a little too loudly. i was annoyed, myself, until i had a cocktail or two, and then all of a sudden everything seemed like a brilliant idea.

i would tell you more, but then i’d have to kill you, and besides, a true lady knows that she has got to keep some secrets.


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
