Ramona thinks the anxiety isn’t flying, it’s being without Reid. They’re both wrong–it’s about Aviva not being the absolute center of the universe of attention, like a giant, needy, emotional black hole into which all fun collapses into a dark quantum singularity. Holy shit, maybe she can split atoms!
Going all Brady Bunch, Ramona is fed up with it always being “Aviva, Aviva, Aviva.”
RamonJa were having fun, and they’re pissed that Aviva insulted them for it. Lu is getting antsy as Ramona’s talking about fun in St. Barth when Jacques enters the room. Need an etiquette lesson in how to act classy and avoid being busted? Do as the countess and jump up, offering wine. For some, avoiding getting busted comes easily, but for the rest of us, it takes “Class with the Countess”.
Lu persists with the spin that she feels badly for the way Aviva was treated and made to feel unwelcome. Sonja says she apologized, but doesn’t feel like Aviva behaved nicely, either. Lu is so lucky RamonJa don’t bring up Ichabod Italian Friend Crane–if they weren’t supportive of sister sleaze, that’s another pumpkin head that would roll.
Carole and Heather get together at a gay bar to get bombed. They think only their shoes are getting stared at, so they drink up, mixing all sorts of liquor. Heather can knock back some shots. The conversation turns to Aviva. Carole loves Vivs, even though she can be “a little self-righteous”. Heather has nicknamed Aviva “Boom Boom” since her voice is so fucking loud, and she reminds Heather of a cruel teacher with a ruler whacking kids for stupid shit, like having fun on vacation.
Dudes, anybody going to Taco Bell?
At an earlier lunch, Aviva told Carole that she was a limpaway bride. Carole says that Aviva called off her wedding one week before it was to take place in Jamaica. After a few shots, courtesy of some guys at the bar (who really are angling for the shoes and maybe a pair of leather pants), conversation turns to Heather’s husband being Jewish, which then leads to a circumcision debate. Heather likes her guys cut and clean, but Cool Cat Carole is okay with whatever, as long as it’s a big one. Again, ladies, there are many things you can keep to yourselves, and that’s a couple of them.
Pick me up a dozen tacos and a gordita crunch…and a Baja Blast…and a burrito…and some cinnamon twists.
Lu and Heather meet up for sushi, which is great because Lu’s in a “sushi state of mind”, whatever that means. They talk a little too much–about the Aviva drama. Lu sides with Aviva, which is a little surprising since Lu had signed on as The Black Pearl’s crew, along with Sonja while in St. Barth.
Did you just make plans for that guy to IVF you in the alley?
