yeah, thursday is standard in israel
got out of moscow safe and sound.
actually, I was there for 2 days and it went pretty well, I achieved exactly what I wanted to achieve work wise. I also had the best meal I've had in about 10-15 trips to Moscow, and I got to red square - I have a picture from 15 years ago in Red square and I wanted to have another one taken in the same spot to compare, and I just havne't had time to get there when I've been in Moscow the past few times.
also, I got to a steam bath, which I've been wanted to do for a while, it was really cool, very different from any other culture of steam baths that I know, and not my favorite, but pretty cool.
I just realized the other day why my company always has its holiday party/in office happy hours/celebratory meals on thursday. I used to think it was just because they were cheap but our venue this year was decidedly not cheap (modern wing of the art institute).
Then I realized that we have a ton of Jews in the senior staff, some of which keep to the whole not doing anything on saturday/after sundown on friday.
What type of steam bath is best?
At happy hour I found possibly the Best. Thing. Ever.
Bloody Mary with bacon.
lol you and bacon
Peeber - you REALLY need to try Rogue's new Maple Bacon ale. I think it would make the perfect liquid base for one of your porky concoctions.
Nice. Run flats suck. All season run flats suck more.
I'll keep an eye out for it.
Ordered some pho and fried gyoza. Hopefully this will cure my hangover..
More booze will cure your hangover.
I popped some excedrin, chugged two bottles of water, and devoured my food.
I feel a LOT better.
Man...my office party was thursday night. I had taken friday off to finish a home woodworking project but mostly just nursed my hangover and did some work from home...didn't really get better until I had some ramen at Arami for dinner.
Then I crashed our competitor's holiday party last night slayer...time to repeat the process and recover before I go to 2 more parties tonight.
Turning out to be a pretty good 3-day weekend
Nice. My company's party is next week. I'm purposely going to not get hammered.. I don't want to say anything stupid to any higher-ups lol.
