My Horizontal Life

The first meeting of the TWG Book Club commenced tonight after work at Julia's house. About two months ago, Megan and Tonya came up with the idea of starting a book club at the Tidewater. After a month of sign-ups, a book was decided on, as well as a date for the first meeting, and four people were volunteered to bring wine and refreshments. In the end, only five of us were able to attend the first meeting - but it was still a good time. The book that had been chosen was "My Horizontal Life - a Collection of One Night Stands" by Chelsea Handler. It's a funny book - each chapter a short story about various one night stands and/or sexual exploits that Chelsea has had in her lifetime. We discussed the book and shared assorted embarassing stories while drinking wine and eating food - Julia made her Spinach Artichoke Dip, Megan brought homemade salsa, and I brought Mel's Dip for Fritos. It was great "outside of work" bonding time, that didn't consist of going to a bar or going to someone's house to get high, so I really enjoyed it.

Mel's Dip for Fritos

8 oz cream cheese
1 can chopped chilis
diced tomatoes
diced onions
dash of Worcestershire sauce

Mix all ingredients together and chill. Serve with Fritos
