I'm digging through Facebook these days-just to relive Hannan and my exchanges...hilarious exchanges....two of my best friends for life are in the photo above. Joey, my 2 year, didn't quite know what to make of these lovely ladies who came over everyday. He combined their names Hannan and Annette and made it one easy one~"Hon-Ette".
My house was like no other house, I must say. It had 4 bedrooms and I had 2 roommates. It so happened that one roommate was a Police Academy Kick out ("It was a contact high, I swear!" duh)...which led to many visits from real life off duty police officers (sometimes on duty-and sometimes not in the city they should have been in-on duty!) There were lots of bbqs and fun happening at almost any given time. It was the staging ground for our trips to the Long Beach Grand Prix, birthday nights in limos and trips to Palm Springs (Palm Springs is an entire blog entry on its own, and its coming soon).
Limo Night!
Martie, myself, Hannan and Krispy Appel

Huggies and Tequila=the only way to parent, just ask Joey

I LOVE this picture! FYI this child is now almost 24 and I did not harm him in anyway~I just wasn't very old when I had him.

This is the House that Hannan Crashed...(and EVERYONE ELSE!)

This was the 4 bedroom house I rented on the border of Huntington Beach and Westminster. I had a 2 year old, a full time nanny and a great job making mega 80's $. I was 22. I had roomates come and go, but I always had my buds Hannan, Annette, Shirley, Chrisa, Martie (my niece who is 2 weeks younger than me)and Krispy Appel. Not all of them lived there at the same time.
It really didn't matter if I was home-I had an open door policy. I worked 10 to 10 at Holiday Spa Monday thru Thursday.
I didn't care that MY house was the center of attention! I had Joey my beautiful baby that I didn't really ever want to leave-unless it was major like Sam Kinison on New Years or a Limo ride for a Tom Petty concert...or a limo ride anywhere, like on my birthday. My house was the shiznat of the 80's. More to come...Im trying to write a eulogy for My Hannan...I want to capture memories as they come to my head.

How To Sit On a Couch~Rest In Peace My sweet friend!

This was after the Long Beach Grand Prix

I lost one of the best friends I have ever had yesterday. Out of the blue, she wasnt sick, OUT OF THE BLUE! I can't stand it that she is gone. I almost have to process this a little more before I can truly delve into this friendship and the horrible loss for so many. We lost touch and reconnected on facebook several years ago. The last 3 years of facebook exchanges have been hysterical to say the least...we discovered we were pregnant at the same time-and delivered our babies a few weeks apart....I will miss her forever and as I sort through my grief please feel free to share your funny stories about Hannan.....yes-its hard to think about Hannan without the word funny. Please leave your comments and memories below...

Please share this with Hannan fans..she would love the attention! LOL

Dog Whitening Soap is a Little White Lie

My dog Livvie, is a picture perfect Mini Schnauzer. She minds. She doesn't beg. She comes in when you call her. She stays when you tell her to stay. You couldn't ask for more from a dog. She even helps me demon sit (oops! I meant puppy sit) her cousin Lexie, by keeping her out of the trash. Livvie would NEVER get in the trash.

Then I leave her alone and FUCKING hell breaks loose!

Chairs are overturned, and she knocks the trash over so that my little dogs can join the party! Nothing is safe! I trust my 16 year old, with the entire house to himself, leaving my car keys, and a keg, and 1000 dollars, and 10 strippers, alone in this house for A MONTH a gazillion times more than I trust this dog for an hour.

Its not like she does this without knowing how bad she is being. When I come home, usually she is happy to see me and bounces all over and she howls in delight! After one of her alone time "indiscretions" although,she is completely different. She hangs her head in shame. I ask her "what did you do Livvie" and she goes and cowers under the coffee table.

Today was a bad day. I came home and she was cowering, and her beautiful white beard was as orange as Snooki. Then I found chef boyardee ravioli can that was so sparkling clean that it could have come from the dishwasher

On further inspection, I discover that she had made a journey across my desk, taking the "A" "G" and "6" keys off of my laptop.  She is pretty lucky she didnt take my "W" "T" and "F" or I would have had to do more than give her a bath!

The Meat That Thought he Could

Ok, So I pull out a roast to thaw all day. Turns out this meat will not melt. After hours of thawing, the roast is still as hard as a 6 hour erection. Damn, I don't want to go to the ER just to tell them that "my meat wont get soft". They would look at me funny, especially since this roast is not the size of a roast you would brag about.
