I consider myself a pretty supportive person. If a friend is in need, I’ll be there ... in most cases. However, if you are looking to get and/or stay sober, I’m not sure I would be the best sponsor for you. I’m pretty sure drinking is not allowed in Alcoholics Anonymous, correct?
Yeah. I wouldn’t be the best sponsor.
So I find myself on a date with a cute young guy. We were at a local Italian restaurant, and I opted to order a glass of red wine with dinner. I just drank ONE glass, people. I didn’t polish off a bottle and dance on the table with a short skirt and no underwear on. I usually...

As you have probably caught on, I definitely have blacked out my fair share of times. And by fair share, I mean most of my college career. This probably explains why I’m not able to form full sentences and need a calculator to figure out the tip on a $10 bill. (Really, Leigh? Really?) I’m basically like an upright walking, less hairy caveman.
Leigh 0, Rum 1,000.
The drill in college with my roommates was that we would usually reconvene with leftover pizza or McDonald’s the morning after a night of drinking and go over the events of the night. The conversation usually started...
I love being tan. I’m not sure if it’s because it makes me look less fat or if it’s because I really only enjoy doing things that I am good at. I tan very well, people. It took a lot of time and practice, but let’s just say I’m a professional.
My Dad is 100% Greek and I happened to acquire his olive skin tone.
Since the dawn of time I’ve been a sun baby. Back in high school and college I would use any kind of oil available. It was rather effective. Not only could I Crisco up my body for tanning purposes, but then I could rub my body with the chicken legs and stick them...
Honestly, I don’t go out to bars looking to hook up. I often get made fun of by my single friends for how I tend to befriend the oddest, oldest person in the bar. My friends are all talking to single studs and I’m talking to the guy who looks like the Empire Carpet man. What can I say? I like characters and am entertained by strangeness and interesting life stories.
This is not to say I don’t meet people. As you have been reading over the last year, I don’t have a problem meeting a lot of people. It’s never my intention,...
For those of you reading this who live outside of the Chicagoland area, you may not believe it but there is a pretty big boating scene in the Windy City. Although the boating season in Chicago is only a few short months a year, every ray of sunshine is capitalized on!
I’m fortunate enough to have a few friends who have boats. Some of my most fun summer days have been spent on a boat on Lake Michigan. One of the biggest boating days of the year is in late July, called the Chicago Scene Party. If you have a boat,...
