Rihanna, drinking for thirty years and shopping for 23

hey girls! (and boys, although i think that probably only applies to trip)
it's been a whirlwind last two weeks.  two of my best friends from high school flew out to visit, so you know i had to show them a good time, right?  we drank our way through thirty years, hitting up an '80's bar crawl, a "'90's house party" (at a bar) and, of course, going out in normal clothes ONCE just so we encompassed the '00's.  we lost one of my best friends the second night, and waking up in the morning, i called the bar where we last saw her, but i was still pretty out of it so my message sounded a little like this:
"uh, hi! this is alanna!  we lost my best friend last night?
her name is judy!  she is 4'11 and she was wearing '80's gear!!
[giggles for about two minutes]
call me if you find her!! she is very nice so maybe she is still there!! see you in a few hours!"
appropriate, given the severity of the situation, huh?  well, we of course checked facebook and little judy had managed to get online and message me to tell me that her phone was lost, her purse was soaked as she had decided to mermaid it up in the pacific ocean, and her side pony was just all out of wack.  we picked her up from her new location (seriously thirty minutes away...girl must have been on some adventures) and proceeded to make our 1115 champagne brunch reservations...

oh, that's '80's and '00's, you ask?  [and yes, the second photo is 00's...despite the psychedelic pattern, it's a Trina Turk '10 swimsuit coverup that happens to make a fab sundress] what happened to '90's?  obviously judy forgot her camera cord and she can't upload them!! that's what 96 hours straight of drinking through 30 years of clothing does to you!

i also wanted to update y'all on my couch...SO, after it wouldn't fit (see last post) and i listed it on craigslist, i came home to find the entire structure of it gone.  fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it) i still had the cushions in my apartment.  thus, i give you, the uncouch-couch:

hilarious, eh?

other than that, things have been going well. 
Rihanna and the rest of the big stars for the new movie Battleship made a visit to the USS Stockdale yesterday and a couple guys from my office got to go photograph it - having seen the 'before' photos (unretouched), Rihanna is really. freaking. pretty. girl has no blemishes whatsoever, and her skin naturally looks airbrushed. 

becky ( gets back on friday so i'm looking forward to another antics filled weekend!
