An American Girl in Londontown

I just got back from the wedding in England where I drunkenly embarrassed myself so drastically that I might just ban myself from the United Kingdom altogether. As a side note, congratulations to K & A. The wedding was beautiful! And Vix, here's your big shout-out! Thanks for the lovely big sleep-over and I miss you terribly already. 

It's my day to post. 

Unfortunately, I have major jet lag (and I totally can't call out of work tomorrow). I just got off the plane ride from hell (think puke, broken TV monitors, and dead iPods). 

And to top it all off, WG1 has raided my Ben & Jerry's ice cream stash. And when I say raided I mean she picked out all the good bits and left behind vanilla ice cream. And when I yelled at her (and oh man did I yell) she said she did it because she missed me. Which is really nice, but don't tell her I told you that. 

So, in short, I think I might take the night off and go to bed early.

You need to go into more detail about your drunken embarrassment story - who doesn't have one worth sharing? ;)

Just A Spoonful of Sarcasm said...

Bloody Hell!
Better go for a B&J run before you head off to bed.
Glad you had a nice time at the wedding!
Welcome Back!

anty_anand said...

Welcome WG2, we've missed you as much as WG1 just not quite enough to raid your B&J stash!

Nice to know the wedding was fun..

Your blogs funny it reminds me of that article in cosmopolitan K fictional blogger.

Haley J said...

London! You lucky bitch! At least it wasn't some stranger all up in your ice cream. You're hilarious :)

petra michelle; Whose role is it anyway? said...

I've been waiting for things to cool down since you've made blog of note. 85 or so comments for days! I just wanted to say how two remind me so much of myself while I worked in Manhattan; a city gadabout and slicker! Am so grateful to blog of note for having introduced you!
Since I've had my two blogs, and am an agented screenwriter, I try my best to visit and post as often as I can. I've listed you on my blog list, so that I would be able to find you again. Enjoy while you still can! It was very nice meeting you. Petra :))

Vera Ezimora said...

LOL. That was a nice way of showing how much she missed you. I'll be sure to do that in the future to someone I miss. I agree with Herding Cats though, you need to go into details bout your drunken embarrassment. Tell us what not to do when at a wedding (in UK for that matter!). They're so proper over there.


....Oh, first time here. www.verastic.com

Ken said...

O.K. I have stopped rolling on the floor, that was way to funny!. You know that wg1 realy did miss you, but don't buy in to "it's because I miissed you" bit. she did that because you didn't take her with you.(just kidding)

Ashley Kay said...

awww that's so sweet... I eat J's ice cream too when she's gone to Missouri -her hometown.

P.S. I'm still alive, I survived the earthquake!

Jet lag, huh? My mum and sister just came back from the Philippines and my sister's having a hard time getting over her jet lag. Hope yours isn't as bad as hers! Good to know you arrived safely :)

Shadowdog said...

Oh man, I'd be so pissed about that B and J raid. LMFAO! That reminds me of the old days in the college dorm when I'd buy those neopolitan boxes of ice cream and the other jerks in the dorm would raid the chocolate and strawberry and leave the vanilla for me. Grrrr.

Eric said...

Your blog is hilarious! Congrats on being a blog-of-note!

Katie said...

cute story - I'm the same with the Ben & Jerry's!

TheDailyBonus.com said...

Thats a strange way to show you miss someone.

Nicole said...

I am totally obsessed with the blogging I come faithfully everyday. I have told everyone when I am walking the halls to check you guys out it is so funny.

Tassie Rosamond said...

Ben and Jerry's ice cream is good because of the the "goodies." It's a strange way to say she missed you, but just think...it could have been so much worse! Welcome back!

Lose That Girl said...

You lucky duck! Got to visit London yet you're complaining about your ice cream being eaten while you were gone!

I think if you left me behind and swanned off to London, I'd eat the best of the ice cream selection too!

Caz said...

What's your fav B&J flavour?!? I'd have to say the Half-Baked is my fav only because it has the cookie dough in it, but it's also chocolate. Way better than vanilla IMO.
Also, you know you're SO going to have to tell us the embarassing story.

Working Mom said...

just stopping by to say i love your blog! i saw you on the blogs of note.

Christine said...

haha this is hillarious. I hate to admit it, but i pick out all the good stuff from ice cream too- and I tell myself that my boyfriend loves me for it! HA! can't wait to read about your next adventure!

Jessica said...

I feel there is a more interesting and funny story behind yoru trip to London :) a city thaqt I feel is one of the coolest places on earth!

ceemee said...

Welcome back, WG2!
Now, you get to gchat with WG1 again.

bex said...

what is true love if not sharing the good ice cream?

Athena said...

I just finished picking out the marshmallows from rocky road. I'm glad you're home safe, get some sleep.

The Wine Guy said...

I hope you drank some good wine while you were gone!

Mr Bubbles said...

I Do believe Herding cats is right. I do believe I would be delighted to hear about your drunken embarrassment story.

Hope You Get Better!


Mr Bubbles

xXx

Sunny said...

hope you'll get enough time to sleep some day ;) and yes, it'll be great to listen to that drunken embarrassment story of yours:)

Bhavna said...

Hi Working Girl,
Thats one of the few blogs that I could instantly relate too. Will add you to my blog roll

cheers

Cosmo chick said...

I am from LDN! Glad you enjoyed it, lucky you the weather was good.
I too am glad for Blog note for pointing you out- I have you on my blog too so I can find you and know when you have updated.

Wicked blog, love it mann!

Kasia said...

Dear WG1 and WG2: your blog made me completely waste two working days... Anyway I have read most of it now and love it! I wish a blog like that existed 7 years ago when I was an aspiring working girl straigt out of the university myslef. Gosh, I thought having any job was a real achivement and would blast myself all the time for not being grateful to the Almighty for having it. How I hated my job back then :) Little I know where my career paths would lead me.
Anyway keep going, I have you in my blogs of note and will read anything you post from now on. Cheers

HOBO said...

I got caught making out with the my best friend's brother on her wedding video....yeah...not a good story. :(

lindsey xoxo said...

you said drunk in a foreign city and ban, i officially think this is the best blog i've come across.

i was in tulsa over the weekend for a music fest and there were 42 oz. margaritas, enough said.

Megan said...

I like your blogs. Keep them coming. Yeah tell us more about the embarrasing story. I've had many myself. lol

that girl ? said...

How cool! A recent blog addiction visited my country! Glad you had a good time! I picked up your site on blogs of note so congrats for that too. It's brilliant and being a part time working mum who likes to ensure she covers a wide spectrum of insights on her own blog.. you are now on my Be Inspired list! xx

Ginger9398 said...

Funny, I went to a wedding not too long ago with open bar. Bad idea. Needless to say I couldn't face my family for quite a few weeks

flemse said...

Extremely well made blog this one.. very good! 3 stars from me * * * out for 3 possible!

D. said...

As someone else said, I'm glad Blogger put you guys under blogs of note :) This is waaaaay too funny to keep quiet.
Living in TX and going to Hawaii for a couple of weeks in June put me on a 5 hour jet-lag for a couple of days upon my return home... good luck with getting back into the swing of things!

Katelin said...

welcome back! but i want to hear more about this wedding and debaucherous activity :)

johnnyyy said...

ya deff. the best part was the drunken part lol

Just some guy said...

Definitely need to expand on the drunken embarrassment story! Those are always fun to hear!

Good for you guys being in the blog of note!

Anna Routh said...

WG1, you poor hungover lady. I would never have eaten all the good bits from your ice cream. Ok, maybe I would've. Kind of like I used to take small bits of your port wine cheese and triscuits when you weren't home...Ha!

The Consumer Queen said...

Raided the ice cream? arggh I hate when that happens LOL

LWHG said...

Too funny. I just wrote about my own out of town wedding drunken shenanigans! I think its bound to happen to everyone at some point in time.

Lady Jeanette said...

UK? Cool! I'm thinking of heading over there in the spring. I hate jetlag though. I know exactly what its like.

Reckless Sarcasm said...

Please do expound on the drunken embarrassment.
Inquiring minds want to know!

Baby, Lemme Lay Dat' Funk on Ya! said...

No one should touch your Ben and Jerries! :)

Just found your site and I will continue to visit... loves it!

jane hamilton said...

Hey!
Come on, out with that 'drunken embarrassment' story. I don't drink, but I get embarrassed a lot, so.... you're actually my role model!!

Okaaaayyy! So here's a new way of showing someone you miss them, raid their snack box!!

Ok, so who do I miss for tea time?!?!?

Suddenly Sixty said...

What flavor ice cream?

loveangel said...

i must say this is one of the most organised and rich blogs i have ever visited. keep it up. lots of love. . .

Seeker Of Happiness said...

good time and have a good rest

Maddie said...

Lol i feel sorry for you, having jet lag and no B&Js is torture.

Hope you enjoyed london, you were lucky, we've had quite good weather recently!!

iinii said...

nice posts XD
continue

Jade's Darling Description said...

I accidentally sent an e-mail post instead of a comment too...ha.

Anyway, I've always been tempted by the casual office romance, but have successfully resisted thus far...but I can't say that I don't enjoy the thought(s).

Thanks Working Girls! I added you to my blog list as well. I look forward to more great posts that I can relate to, as I am also a fun working girl.

tlk said...

OH MY GOSH, this is sooooo funny. I get so bored at work, and I read blogs of note on Blogger and I LOVE YOURS. Love love it. I feel like I'm reading a juicy girly chick gossip book but it's REAL LIFE.

Smilf said...

HA! I hate when that happens to the ice cream dammit. Glad you had a good time at the wedding. Need more details!

Face Clues said...

That's the funniest excuse I have heard for eating the "good bits" in ice cream.

New Mama said...

I found you blog through browsing blogs of note. It's very entertaining. Reminds me of my working days.

New Mama said...

BTW, isn't London fantastic?!?

ALF said...

I would be so totally pissed if someone picked out all the good bits from the icecream and just left the vanilla. Although that is a very clever excuse!

Delectable Debonair said...

yeah.. I agree.. It's little inconclusive and there is alot for the reader to interpret and make out. Although the expression was awesome.

Michael Knight Rambo said...

You had me at drunkenly embarrassed... but have you ever drunkenly reported you car stolen only to realize the next morning you didn't drive it (thankfully) to the bar? Try calling the copshop to report a car "unstolen." Retarded!
That being said I loved your story but still feel like I need to bleach my eyes with liquid testosterone after all the ice-cream and whatnot.

Sampada said...

hahaha..that was funny..this one seems like a blog worth visiting everyday....hope i keep up my latest resolution ;)
