What did you do last night? (This is How We Roll) - Page 173

Sunday - Recovery. Lay on the couch and cursed my friends for bringing over so much booze. Drank a couple of beers to see if they would make me feel better. They may have...

Monday - Bank holiday in the UK. Woke up to a text message from friends about dim sum. Post dim sum hit the Good Mixer, and old school rock and roll dive bar with a great jukebox and a constant smell of vomit. Few pints of Guinness then on to the Crown and Goose in hopes that they had some raw oysters in. They didn't, so we consoled ourselves with more beer. Stumbled home at some point and managed to make nachos (and a mess in the kitchen). Passed out watching Alton Brown.

Today - Fuzzy head... 3 days to recover.

Knoxville has a gastropub called the crown and goose

Pretty common name. I think every town in England also has a Lamb & Flag.

we are helping out with the publicity for the Australian Food and Wine Fair later this month, and so went off to meet with the organisers at 4pm. Organiser is a wine distributor, so his wares are produced basically as soon as my staff and I sat down. Talk through the project for an hour or so, staff leaves with Asian-red-face and he and I work our way through another bottle. Or two. Lose track of time, stumble over to gf's house about 7.30. Annoy her for a while, and then head off to my best friend's birthday party. Having it on the rooftop at a place called Pacharan - Spanish tapas place. Arrive first, he sitting there alone cursing ppl for being fashionably late, and watch a big table fill up around us. I decided that my little 3.5 hour drinking stint in the afternoon was enough for one day, switch to water (and remarkably stayed that way all night) and catch up with people. A few dudes who we used to be really close with, but now see very little of, made it out for the night - which was great. People later started to drift over to another bar, and I was kinda ready to go as well, but we ended up just kinda stuck there for probably 2 hours longer than we would have liked. Couldn't get the birthday boy to budge - "I'm just gonna do this tequila shot, then we're out"...turn around he has a tequila shot and two glasses of sangria in his hands. Eventually I, like...yelled at him...then we moved on. Finally make it over to Vascos, and it was pretty much dead...reason...everyone else went 2 hours before, got sick of waiting for the rest of us and went home. Birthday boy looking a little disappointed in his friends. I was unsympathetic and tired. GF scolds me for lack of sympathy, so hang out a bit longer for his sake...he then vanished upstairs cos we were sitting downstairs with a joint, and he didnt feel like smoking it. Eventually abt 1 I gave up, said my goodbyes, and slipped out. Mediocre night, and felt a bit bad that couldn't give Frenchy a better evening, but kinda his own fault for not keeping the party moving when people started to fade and crave a scenery change....

Have worked 24 hours straight more or less, excepting 2 hours of sleep on a biedermeier sofa (yes, I sleep on the goods), and some SF surfing...will go on for another 12. Worked until midnight the day before. Just feel justified in whining a bit.

Naw we were not lucky (or perhaps extremely lucky) to see that one.

Not very comfortable. Ninety minutes to go now, before I go home. I just took a taxi home this morning for shower and change, and then straight back.

Why are you so busy? Is this like Norway's tax season?

Tonight was pretty good. Got out of class early, my friends complained that I hadn't gone out lately, which is true. So we went to our regular bar and just chilled and had some drinks and some food. Just fun to chill w/ the guys, and it had been a while. Good night. Now back here just watching some TV, continuing this aprty alone.

with my local sales team went out to this bar/resteraunt in the mountains overlooking bogota, fantastic view, and their was a thunderstorm maybe 20 km out, so we could see the flashes of lighting. drank 2 bottles of local liquer that is like uzo, smoked a cohiba esplendido, had some grilled meat and some little tiny new potatos. very nice evening.

It is tax season, but this was just a messy printing deadline with too many people involved, plus an expected glut of regular business. Oh, well, can't complain, at least I keep busy. What really killed me was that when I came home, my wife was listening to Vivaldi's "spring" about fifteen times at full volume, to prepare some choreography. Not what I needed.
