Over the weekend, Slick and I went to Jacksonville for a friend’s wedding at Sawgrass TPC and we had so much fun! On Sunday, we went to the Jaguars game, and although the team won, I was the big loser because I picked up a pretty bad virus. (Sexy, I know…) So, aside from a morning run to the doc’s office yesterday to get tested for the flu (negative), I’ve been keeping myself busy with Facebook stalking and watching TV. Since everyone else was at work and I was home all day long, I felt like I needed to watch something comforting. I needed a familiar face. A friend, if you will. So, I watched approximately five hours of TiVo-ed episodes of Chelsea Lately.
We all know that I have a girl crush on Sloane Crosley. While I don’t necessarily have a crush on Chelsea, I definitely want her to be my best friend. I think she’d get me. We both grew up raising eyebrows at our parent’s interesting choice of motor vehicles, we have a special place in our hearts for vodka cocktails and little people, we’ve both been particularly entrepreneurial from a very young age and we are 1/2 Jews. Further, we both love cake and appreciate the importance of a trusty sidekick. She has one – I am accepting applications… I am convinced that our friendship is meant to be.
I’ve read exactly 155 pages of her newest New York Times Bestseller, Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea, and I have been inducing coughing fits from laughing so hard. She. Is. Hysterical. This book, a collection of her personal short stories, is perfect for anyone who needs a good laugh. “Chelsea in Charge” is my favorite chapter so far. Slick and I read it together on the plane to JAX (he read it over my shoulder – refusing to hold the book because the cover has a little pink on it…) and we were in stitches.
She also wrote this one:
I haven’t had the opportunity to read it yet, but it’s definitely on my list.
Anyway, Chelsea is absolute riot and totally worthy of your time if it is watching her on TV or reading one of her hysterical books. I hope you enjoy her as much as I do!
