New Years Blog Event Sponsored by Carrie Ann Ryan
This is Shar, not Michael speaking!
Today is the New Years Eve Blog Hop. Woot. There are two special prizes being given away too so stayed tuned for that but first, enjoy my memory from New years which is slightly embarrassing but hell, it's a memory.
So, let's chalk this up to stupid things you do when you're younger since it happened before I turned 30. Me and my bff's stayed at a hotel, which used to be the House of Blues here in Chicago. Six gals, lots of liquor, trouble right? Oh yeah lots!
Anyway, we split the cost, had 2 double beds and 2 cots as well. We didn't have many plans except to get all dressed up and go down to the bar in the hotel which was practically dead by the way as well as try sneaking into the show they had at the HOB which I believe that year was Goo Goo Dolls. LMAO how fun right? To continue, we also had brought some various appetizers. Meats, cheeses, shrimp cocktail to munch on as well as small deserts. Most of the day I hadn't eaten anything but once we started partying, I did have some of it including Truffles.
From there, I had a few things to drink. I think some Vodka and most likely some Jagermeister, since I recall becoming quite fond of it around that time. Needless to say, by the end of the night which was after 2am, I was sick as a dog and well, lets just say it wasn't pretty. Thank goodness for having great friends, especially my "twin" E who helped me get through the rest of the morning. I was supposed to be into work that next day and I worked downtown at a retailer as a manager. Of course I didn't make it and I couldn't eat anything that following day until late at night.
So, lesson learned! LMAO Never drink on an empty stomach. Appetizers are not enough and dont mix Vodka and Jager. LOL
Hope you enjoyed that and make sure you check out all the fabulous authors who have made it possible for you to win 2 great prizes. One a Kindle Fire and Two an $80 GC from Amazon! WOW!
My gift to give is an ebook from Michael's backlist and a GC as well. So please comment!
Look for Michael's next book, Vertigo to come out very soon! Thanks for stopping by!
