I'm Not Containable

Friday was the perfect last vacation day of the Summer. It was cool and rainy most of the day. I stayed in and got a bunch of projects done. In fact, I didn't leave my house once the whole day. Apparently, I needed some time to myself. Later in the evening, Coadster and I watched a bunch of Dexter episodes. I love that serial killer with a heart of gold.

Saturday night I went out with some friends for karaoke. I had to drive Stinky to a party and back, so I was the sober girl of the group. After karaoke, we went back to the Dublin where a VERY drunk off-duty bartender showed up.

At first, I thought I was going to stick around and give people rides home. Then I remembered two things: 1.) I'm too much of a loser to stay out until bar close, and 2.) my friends don't really go home after bar close anyway.

I was quite the trooper though. I stayed out until the drunken off-duty bartender yelled out "Laaaaaast Caaaalllll" (albeit, not with half as much flair as my girlcrush does it) and the girl standing next to him promptly fell off her perch. I took it as a sign to get on home.

You did well to maintain your sobriety amidst the fun time.

Hmm... I wonder if you could truly stay a whole day in your house. Including the evening...

That off duty bartender friend is working the camera! Sounds like a peaceful day and a fun evening. Perfect!

I was always the sober guy in the bar. I used make a little extra cash carting a few people home.

I can barely make it to midnight anymore, so don't feel bad.

I am usually the DD when we go out. I don't mind, I can always drink at someone's house.

Bars close? Never been out that late...

I'm often sober amongst the antics.


In fact, I can and I did on Friday. My body must be getting ready to hibernate.


He's a total camera whore when he's drunk.


I was just thinking I could do something nice for my friends. But, alas, I can't keep up with the cool kids.


Ha ha. I normally don't make it out that late either. It's usually scary by then anyway.
