Good friends don't change much.

Long story short my friend Bradford had an idea to start an online flash sale store specializing in "cool things". Sites like this already existed like Groupon and Gilt but he had a background in designer OBJECTS like furniture, fashion and some art so he used his talents in that market to develop a site based on that. Well long story short that company is called FAB and now its worth a BILLION DOLLARS?! SHOCKINGLY, and I don't know how because I doubt I would be the same, Bradford has not changed. HES STILL LOVINGLY HORRIBLE, I originally typed HORRIBLY LOVABLE, but HES NOT, he's LOVINGLY HORRIBLE. Now some people have a tough time with his very fast rise to success, even I did, BUT I must say after you turn your inner jealousy (which EVERYONE had but few mentioned) into happiness for his success you realize. OH... having friends who are successful is REALLY FUN and GOOD KARMA?!. I mean he was really fun before which is why he was my good friend but now its just fun on a scale I hadn't experienced before. Bradfords birthday was a couple months ago and he paid for 20 of us to stay in a mansion in Turks and Caicos. Long story short it was NICE and super gracious of him. I had an awesome time becoming closer to friends of his I didn't know so well and doing all the WONDERFULLY BLINGY activities that nouveau riche people do on an island, in a mansion, on a boat, in a fur (the ONE lady on our trip brought it for effect and it got CUT TO PIECES by customs officials because they thought she had drugs in it?!). The GREAT thing though is it wasn't the "fancy" stuff that was the most fun, it was SAME STUFF WE'D ALWAYS DONE that was fun! Wearing towels on your head, endless tacky costume changes (me especially though Bradford is a close second), beach volleyball, telling stories. Not all of the activities were spur of the moment though and I learned from Bradfords banker (calculating brain) husband Georgi that a little proper planning makes for a fun vacation because then you're not laying around going "Whataya wanna do?". One of these activities happened to be a talent contest judged like Rupauls Drag Race and we actually flew Michelle Visage (seen WAILING with Bradford in the photo) in to be a judge for a surprise for Bradford (not that expensive btw?! Very reasonable I would say!) so it was basically EXACTLY like an episode of RPDR just swap out the gorgeous supermodel for BRADFORD. Long story short it was divided by rooms. Each room had to be a team and come up with a performance. My team of course got the ONLY perfect score. We reinacted George Michaels video "Too Funky" but made our couture all out of pool inflatables. Seeing Michelle Visage and Bradford GAG and SCREAM and give me the FINGER WAG was ACTUALLY A DREAM COME TRUE. We KILLED IT and Bradfords husband Georgi who was NOT on our team still has TRAUMATIZING FLASHBACKS and CANNOT TAKE IT and Bradford wrote me a letter saying "GEORGI IS INSANE PISSED HE DIDNT WIN" .... but I'm mean REALLY... Georgi is cute and lovely and talented, but don't go up against me in the "Make a gown out of garbage" competition because I don't get cute, I GET DROP DEAD GORGEOUS.
