This Is Your Night, Baby You've Got to be There

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.

I love having a fun girl night's out. My friends and I went out to the local Mexican restaurant on Wednesday for some discounted margaritas. Then since the place is three minutes from my home we went back to my place and set off a few stale firecrackers, then laughed and talked.

i love fun girl's nights where the alcohol is comsumed, sans other drunks, in someone's home

Sounds like that's the proper stuff right there. Drinking as nature intended - keep the frinds, ditch the morons.

Appetizers, sushi and alcohol, without the side of morons, sounds like a good time.

Fun girls night out is the best. It should be a regular event in every fun girl's life.

Oh the chin was your mums fault....I wondered if you played with the vacuum cleaner too much as a kid....hehehe

Churlita,
I've never been to a girls night out. Sounds like fun....ooops, wait a minute, I work with women, mainly, everyday. Ahhh, maybe I'll pass on the girls night out. ;-)
Glad you enjoyed yours though.

Girls' nights are the best, so great, it's sometimes hard to remember what all the fuss about the guys is for. They're nice, but ...

The older I get, the more I like bringing the party to me. i've found that if i host the festivities I can drink as much as I want and my bed is only 26 steps from the fartherest reaches of my home. Yes, it means I have to clean up after, but it's so worth it. Do your bender, but do it right: party at Churlita's! Girls on vaca!

Tara,

God, I wish we had firecrackers. That would have made my night.

Margaret,

Me too.

Mr Atrocity,

That should be my new motto:

"keep the frinds, ditch the morons."

Evil-E,

It was really nice.

LB,

I hope it is for us.

Les,

A little bit of both.

Rel,

It sounds like you need a fun guys night out.

Booda Baby,

I hear you.

Liz,

I don't know if I did it right, but I definitely did my bender on Saturday night.
