"Adventure?!"

Boobarella and I have a proposition to make to all of you and we're very serious about it. We were talking over the weekend about how both of us will be celebrating our 30th birthdays this winter (mine, December; hers, January). And then we talked about how we knew others who have birthdays around the same time and how it would be really nice to just have one big birthday party. Too bad it's in the winter. And that's when I said, "What about HALF birthday? That would be Juneish?"

Here we extend our invitation: We would like to celebrate 30.5 by getting together all of our groovy friends in one place. Namely, a tour of the wineries around one of the Finger Lakes in upstate New York. We'll go in May/June/July, all fly in to the same airport (what was it? Buffalo?) rent a car (or cars, depending on how many of you would like to participate), and hit a bunch of wineries, staying in bed and breakfasts, relaxing on the occasional beach, and, oh yeah, hitting wineries.

It'll be like "Sideways," only all girls and no dysfunctional-emotional crap. This advance notice gives everyone time to plan and to save up money. And yes, we are totally serious. If none of the rest of you want to, we're going ourselves. But we'd really like other people to come. We promise to play "Dream Phone." Who's in?

I know it sounds like Buffalo is out of the way, but it's a really pretty drive and really doesn't take that long.

And you think I can get "Dream Phone" on a plane?

Oh my god, I want to go. It sounds better than Beppy!

Wait a minute - can I celebrate 31.7 with all you 30.5-somethings?

Erika said...

Ofcourse you can, you old fart!

We can call it the "Point-Something Sexybitches Winetastic Roadtrip, '07," celebrating people's parts of birthdays (and using the '07 to indicate that we WILL do it again). And Jenny is actually REQUIRED to attend. And I'm pretty sure they'll not only allow "Dream Phone" on the plane, they may institute a policy whereby the game becomes a required in-flight element... a new, standard amenity on all flights.
