Always have tamales in your freezer. (I.e. Notes from Drunkstina)

Honestly, I have nothing super valuable to say right now. BUT I’m drunk and I LOVE writing when I’m drunk.

ALSO, I realized that I never wrote about this SUPER AWESOME thing I did once. I.e. That Time I Made Tamales.

Tonight, I went to the movies. I haven’t actually gone to “the movies” (i.e. major cinema showing current films) since I lived in Chicago. So basically, it’s been over 2 years since I’ve been to the movies.

But today, I did that. I went and saw a current movie. As in, I saw a movie that has just been released.

Today, I saw “Don Jon.”

Ok, so I know most of you are going to laugh, but it’s true. That’s the movie I saw, and I have no regrets. It was actually really interesting. Like, I enjoyed it. And it made me think. And…yeah, all of those things.

If you care, go see it. If not, don’t. Whatever.

My point is this. I got really drunk during the movie (i.e. my friend and I bought a fifth of whiskey and poured half of it into our SUPER GIANT soda, which we sipped throughout the film).

And so, I came home drunk.

And then I remembered that I have tamales in my freezer.


At this point, I’ve decided that I should always have tamales in my freezer. Because when you’re drunk, TAMALES ARE AWESOME.

(They are always awesome. But it’s like magic when you’re drunk.)

I made tamales at my friend Rachel’s house about 3 weeks ago, and I’ve had tons of them in my freezer ever since. And yeah, I’ve been eating them, slowly, occasionally, when I have no other meal plans, or for snacks, or whatever. But then tonight, I came home, drunk, to an empty fridge, and I opened the freezer, and it was like the clouds parted and suddenly all was right with the world.


Holy crap.

Nothing could have been better at that one moment.

I have no good way to end this post. I’m drunk and confused. I’m about to go to a party. I have no pictures of tamales. Really, this feels like a fail.

BUT NO. Drunk writing is never a fail. It’s a thing I am very good at. That is a success! Right???

Ok, I will stop now.

I love you all.

Merry Friday to all, and to all a good drunk!
