Wow. What a difference a day makes.
No morning meeting on monday, enabling me to sleep. Woke up, got some shopping done, and found R's 21st birthday present: A silly ceramic luck-cat holding a purple marble in its paws. I got home, relaxed to TV and got ready for R's B-day.
I got to her apartment, and R looked fantastic. She was in a lime green PVC dress straight out of Austin Powers, with requisite Austine style lime green PVC Cap. Sparkly black boots, black tights, and a look that she was ready to party. R is very attractive, and has worked her butt off to hide it. Tonight, she failed.
I was able to meet R's roommates. Delightful people, and surprisingly non-eccentric. I know that would normally be a slam from me, but in this case it was nice. R needs some balance.
Tonights goal was a pub crawl. R had spent the previous night on my laptop searching out fabulous places to go. Thank god no Karaoke was open on Monday. Or first stop was this dark and delightfully creepy polish bar at belmont and Milwaukee. Really gloomy and neat. R downed her first shot, and a Gin and Tonic. I had a manhattan. There was commentary on my 'older' tastes in alcohol. One of her roommates commented that I must have been taught how to drink by someone older.
From there, we moved to Holiday's, a Sinatra-style pub. This was where the evening took off. LOTS of conversation, got to know the roommates and their friends, and R became chatty. Food was good, and I went through a martini and a buttery shot of something. From then on it was cokes. Merciful cokes.
The evening ended for me at Spin, a gay nightclub near my home. There was another shot of something pineapply, and a coke. R's tally for her first over-21 outing was: A harley Davidson, a Gin and Tonic, Tequila, A cosmopolitan, an amaretto sour, and a pineapply shot. She handled it all very well. I think I've found my new drinking partner.
Reviews have come in for my dialouge piece, and they're positive. I'm really pleased. Now I'm typing in my reviews. Then tidying, and dinner with L. All in all, a delightful weekend.
Picked up WISH by CLAMP. An angsty romantic piece involving a successful doctor and an...Angel. *sigh* I love anime. Also picked up LEGACY by fred perry. More on that later.
