This was taken about a month ago. I was on my way to go out drinking with my friends and my disproportionately knobby chin. (thanks a lot, mom)
Tonight was a much needed ladies night in my world, except no one in their right minds would refer to me and my friends as ladies, so maybe "fun girl night" was more like it.
First, I had to stop by my next door neighbor's who had won some local news contest for a free backyard barbecue. It was really hot outside, so I did my cameo and went home right away. It was kind of lame of me, but not as totally lame as it would have been had I not shown up at all - kind of lame, I can deal with.
Ondine was in town from North Carolina, so we all drove out to Coralville for appetizers and sushi. It was my favorite kind of meal where we ordered tons of different types of food and all shared. I was a good girl and didn't drink sake. It was too early in the evening and I'm a girl who can't handle her liquor. Even though I keep threatening a bender, I haven't gotten to that point yet.
After dinner, we bought alcohol and went to my friend T.'s amazing apartment to drink it. It was so nice and quiet and there were no drunk guys to invade our space and make us uncomfortable. We stayed until we were all at that point where we were just kind of babbling about nothing...Okay, until I was at that point where I was just kind of babbling about nothing. My friend K. kept offering to drive my car, but I wasn't drunk, so much as exhausted. It's been a really long week for me. So, all in all it was the perfect evening. We ate, we drank, we talked shit and I won't even have a hang-over tomorrow.
