Jenny spent lots of time at The Menger when she was writing her book. So it was the perfect place for a little surprise party. Karen & Marcus, and Laura & James drove down to celebrate. The hotel is old enough that it has quirky features like four rooms with adjoining balconies. If you're in San Antonio, (and don't mind that it's supposedly haunted) it's perfect for an overnight with friends. You can byob and watch the crazies downtown for free. But since it's visible from the street, we had to wait till the last minute to put the balloons up.
You know. Just chillin in the tiny bar. With our balloons.
Victor planned every detail. I think he even told her that their air conditioner was broken, in order to justify spending the night downtown. When she walked out to the balcony, she thought it was a party for someone else. So cute. I think my favorite part is how happy Victor looks in the background.
Victor rented the theater so we could watch Anchorman.
And lucky for me and my early onset senility (that I've had since birth), it was like watching it for the first time all over again. "Happens every time 60% of the time".
You probably already know this, but just in case you're one of the few people on earth who doesn't read Jenny's hilarious blog. Her book, Let's Pretend This Never Happened, is the funniest book I've ever read. And I'm obviously not the only one who thinks so, because it's been on the NY Times Best-Seller List for weeks! I am so proud of my friend. She is proof that awesome things happen to good people.
