Happy LadyLee Day, Part II

So my sister had a "Happy LadyLee Day" Brunch

Not really.

I just claimed it as MY day. Why? Because she had a brunch for no reason... just because.

Not good enough, I thought, as I stretched my hands over the table and proclaimed "Happy LadyLee Day!"

No one paid much attention... We were too busy pouring drinks.

My sister had plenty of libations.

For the children, there were sodas!

And for me?  If you have read this blog for any time, you know what it is...

Oh yes. If you haven't had water in glass... go get you some. Crisp and clean. No aftertaste. Go get you some.

That is all.

Then there was the liquor.

The Chambora.

Never heard of it. It was STRONG. So I had to investigate it.

Black Raspberry Liqueur. From France. Oh my.

Hmm, I thought. I still think of my sister as being five-years-old.  For years, I would look at her O_o whenever she ordered a glass of wine at dinner. I thought I'd gotten past that.  I guess I haven't. After realizing that she is in her 30s, I didn't make any of my usual comments.

There was much more liquor. Peach Sparkeltini, Avissi, and Bitch Bubbly!
Bitch has a bubbly. You know how much I like Bitch Wine. I haven't had any in years, but I have friends that drink wine, and I use to buy bottles of Bitch for them. Here's an old picture.

Bitch on ice... so nice... so nice...

But this Bitch Bubbly.
I had a glass (with glass jewelry. How fancy is that?) It wasn't all that.  It had a weird angry aftertaste.

"The Bitch ain't bubbly," my sister said. "The Bitch is angry."

Sure was.

I had my glass. And I had my nice crisp water after that.

Yes, I will stick with the water.

But the drinks were nice. My sister likes a nice glass of wine. So do her friends.

I would've looked at her crazy if she'd brought out some Boones Farm or Arbor Mist...

Or some malt liquor.

Oh my.

Yes "LadyLee Day" was a grand success.

Good food. Good drinks. Good Friends.

And me, Your Friendly Neighborhood Original Oldgirl LadyLee.


  1. I'm always on the lookout for good wines. I've never heard of Chambord either. Raspberries and vanilla sound kind of good together. I'll have to try it.

  2. I've tried the Bitch Bubbly. I didn't like it either. However, I do enjoy Peach Sparkltini.


Slap the *crickets* out the way, kindly step up to the mike, and SAY something!!
