Vingt-trois

by lcjonesla

Vingt-Trois= 23.

It sounds better in french than it does in english.

What is 23?

The best birthday cake ever: Triple berry from Sweet Lady Jane

It sounds so dead when you say it.

22 was like, “he he i’m 22.” Almost like saying I was 19 again.

Even though I turned 23, we celebrated like we were 21.

SO MUCH CHAMPAGNE IN SO LITTLE TIME.

This then caused me to be sick on my actual birthday.

After a night at the Andaz, a french fight in Hancock Park, we ended up at my favorite Greystone Manor.

Clique- I quoted the song at the french fight

Please note the sarcasm since I had the worst hangover of my life after an evening there.

The birthday bender continued with a boozy brunch at the open air Hudson.

It was raining and so perfect until my hangover appeared out of nowhere.

And then it hit me.

And then it hit me.

"It reeks of alcohol in this car," said my mom who drove all 7 of us back to my house. Whoops.

The actual day of my birth, I woke up with the worst sore throat ever.

Of course today it is gone, but at the time, I could barely swallow a tylenol.

I spent most of the day in bed with my devoted cat Socks.

Socks

I later emerged to go to Starbs but couldn’t have my iced SKHZL.

I settled for green tea.

My sick food. Pasta with butter and ginger ale

Foreshadowing. This is what I looked like on my actual birthday

Foreshadowing…This is what I looked like on my actual birthday- Pissed off and laying down.

I made it to a birthday dinner with the fam, but could barely drink.

SO SAD.

Even though I was out for the count yesterday, I did enough celebrating saturday and sunday that made up for it.

Suite life. The fur gave me a new persona.
