My Only Way Out

(is to go so far in)

last weekend

Last weekend Ryan and I headed down to A.C. for a night to see Bouncing Souls and to gamble, as part of Ryan’s xmas gift. Nothing compares to being drunk and eating breakfast at some skeevy diner at 3:30 in the morning. It was actually a blast. It was just what I needed, after two weeks of being couped up in the house on antibiotics & Cepacol, to be able to let go and drink and be merry with my love. On Saturday we went to see one of Ryan’s friends’ last shows and then headed out for more drinking and merriment. On Sunday, New Year’s Eve, we were being pulled in a million different directions, and we were both burnt out and didn’t really feel like doing anything. At 8:00 we said, “Screw it, we’re staying in.” We went out and bought two bottles of wine, a bottle of champagne, and got sushi delivered. It was heaven.

We were drunk by nine, while watching Seinfeld dvds and playing Hoopla. Around 11:30 we’d had waaaay too much to drink and got in a fight about something incredibly stupid. We cried for about 20 minutes and at midnight we were kissing again. His parents called at midnight and his dad was shouting, “We love you, Courtney!!” and that made me burst into hysterical tears. His parents are such sweethearts who have completely opened their hearts to me, and it was just overwhelming to realize how lucky I am. I couldn’t imagine a better way to spend my new year’s.
