So, there finally was proper partying at our place, which was quite the housewarming! Thanks to our guests for an awesome evening!

Crane Lifting a Jackhammer

Some people were a bit incredulous of the, uh, interesting method that the demolition crew has been using on the other buildings of our complex, but you can see a picture of them in action right here. No one seems to have been hurt up to now, but when swinging a jackhammer from a crane, it can't be too long...

I discovered that a new add-on to our garbage can that [livejournal.com profile] azrhey picked up shares a trait with Superman: it gains its powers from the Sun! Add that to the list of our home appliances that are candidates to take over the world.

After hosting a gaming night (we don't stop for nuthin'!), now it's one of those times where we stuff ourselves with chocolate and other things, as [livejournal.com profile] azrhey's parents, my mom and my sister come to visit. Hopefully, our toaster oven won't kill them or something...

So, a new year again, eh?

There was (in alphabetical order) Apples to Apples, Doctor Who, drinking, flashing (getting to be a NYE tradition!), kissing, making out, and so on. This can't possibly be all that bad, now, can it?

I went to the party of [livejournal.com profile] maery, Patrick and [livejournal.com profile] iangurudata with [livejournal.com profile] azrhey, [livejournal.com profile] liberation_now, [livejournal.com profile] obskura, [livejournal.com profile] scjody and [livejournal.com profile] tygrbabe, which was pretty cool. There was this thing with a clove orange going around, which was kind of fun, but provided me with ample occasion to face my shyness. I tried to do good, but I mostly fumbled and ended up feeling rather dorky, it seems. I reflected on the delta of going from partying in Barcelona to partying in Verdun for NYE, but while the venue might be a bit sketchier, being in good company more than makes up for it!

[livejournal.com profile] azrhey and I went back to [livejournal.com profile] liberation_now and [livejournal.com profile] tygrbabe's place after the stroke of midnight, for a nice evening of hanging out and playing games (Apples to Apples!). There, it was eventually discovered that Bailey's and wine are actively evil when mixed together. Very evil. As in, we all ended up sick, to various degrees. Eurgh. Still, a pretty awesome night.

We were going to go to my dad's for dinner the next day, but as it turned out, the snowstorm (combined with a nasty hangover) put a stop to that.

Oh my goodness, what an awesome birthday party! Thanks to everyone who came, and also to all those who sent in their birthday wishes from far away (my phone kept buzzing all day!)!

We went to Old Dublin for a bit of the traditional burger and Guinness, where the staff seems to have recognized us after more than a year without patronage, not bad! They gave me a shot of Jamieson with a little birthday candle attached with an elastic strap, that was rather cute. Many people were making all sorts of "threats", and all that I asked for was that I wouldn't have to leave in an ambulance. Finding myself in a ditch the next morning might be okay (although I preferred avoiding that), but I put a ban on ambulances.

I was offered rather shockingly tiny swim trunks which were decorated in a pattern that I can't quite place or name. Probably for the best.

Mr Zion, at some point during the evening, asked what did I do to be surrounded by such beautiful women. While I couldn't answer his question, he's quite correct in his assertion, I find. An even greater mystery is how all of them who are going to read this are going to think I'm talking about the others, but not themselves.

A little bit before 23h, we decided to leave, as the music was picking up in volume, and [livejournal.com profile] jul3z offered we continued at her new place. At this point, I was reminded that convenience stores were just about to stop selling alcohol, so [livejournal.com profile] blacksquiggles and I ran off as quickly as we could to the closest store I knew of (at Ste-Catherine and Bleury!), and we bought as much beer as we could carry. [livejournal.com profile] xipetotec picked us up, and since all the seats were occupied, I went in the back of his mini-van, lying on the floor with my head between the two seats, where it was stroked gently all the way there (to keep me entertained, I presume, as I could only see the ceiling!).

There was a spanking, which is kind of traditional among these circles. Intriguing circles, those I live in! I was also required to model the swim trunks. Have I mentioned they were shockingly tiny? I was also given a bottle of Canadian whiskey flavoured with maple syrup! I'd like to try it soon, but it would seem I forgot it at [livejournal.com profile] jul3z apartment, in my drunken daze.

I regretted that I couldn't spend as much time as I could have wanted with some people, and yet even more were missed, but I've got quite a memorable evening for my thirtieth birthday, and I went off (in a cab!) satisfyingly tired.

Much happened. There was (and still is, to some degree) blahness, so in my usual not so good way, I didn't write. But now, that was just too much of an action-packed week-end (relatively speaking, for my sorry little expat ass, as this is merely "the usual" for those of you still reading this in Montreal, I'm sure!).

I decided Friday that I'd go out. Not content with that, I also decided that I'd do it in my own particular fashion of completely disorganized randomness, going with the spur of the moment.

Here are some of the things I learned that weekend:

  • Vodka-tonics are nice.
  • Leffe, while good, doesn't really do it when you're in the mood for Guinness.
  • When following random people, sometimes they're just going home.
  • I should get a lighter.

Also, on another note, it's off to Pamplona, Spain by train with [livejournal.com profile] azrhey tomorrow morning, to meet with apenwarr. And at the end of April, it'll be off to Copenhagen, Denmark to visit [livejournal.com profile] skjalm, and have even more adventures!

Better late than never, as they say... ;-)

[livejournal.com profile] azrhey and I got up at some ungodly hour in order to catch the bus at 7:00. Seems like we took off a bit late, and missed the city bus going downtown, so I called up a cab. This, in Toulouse, is always an adventure in randomness. In a metropolitan area of half a million inhabitants, at 6:43 in the morning, on a Sunday, of New Year's Eve, no less, there's probably four cabs in town, I would estimate. No such thing as hailing a cab here, if you see one (and really, you never do except at the airport and the very few cab areas), it's already busy. The driver was, accordingly to our rather high level of urgency, the slowest and most indecisive you can imagine. But I must not be in the right head-space for this place, because once we arrived, the bus driver wasn't even there and we really only left at something like 7:20.

Upon departing, the driver promptly took a wrong turn, right in Toulouse, but managed to do a quick recovery. This was better than what he managed when he took another wrong turn in Barcelona itself, oh well. Arrived at Plaça de Catalunya a bit after noon, just in time for some quick luncheon on the plaça.

We walked up the Passeig de Gràcia to head to the Sagrada Familia basilic, seeing crazy houses and the Weirdo Museum on the way. One will quickly notice that there is not much carpet in Barcelona: I suspect the architects smoked all of it, sometimes around the beginning of the 20th century, the carpeting never fully recovering after even a century.

Sagrada Familia
Originally uploaded by pphaneuf.
The Sagrada Familia is quite impressive. You're probably not considering how impressive it is, but I assure you, it is quite the building. Amazingly huge. I'm not really a religious person, but I'm fairly sure god talked to me there. What he said was "you should get yourself a wider angle lens". Okay, that might not have been god, but still, wow, it's incredibly big. Now, if only they could freakin' finish it so I could take a decent picture (once I get a wider lens, of course!)...

We then took the metro toward the beach. Buying the tickets was a bit funny, because the automated ticket vending machine used one of the classic Mac "alert" sounds. Okay, haha, but it wasn't just at the end when it tells you to get your tickets, no, it's when you press any button! Toot. Toot. Toot toot. Toot. Toot. And there was a newspaper stand right beside it, the guy working it has nerves of steel, let me tell you! The metro itself is kind of cool, on rails. The first one we took was pretty modern and had fully connected cars, rather neat. The second one was pretty old and was a bit like taking the old TER train, just underground.

Then, the Barceloneta, the most famous of Barcelona's beaches. I had this plan of taking my shoes and socks off, roll up my pants and walk a bit in the sea, but I decided against, mainly because I had no towel. The water was surprisingly warm, though, I could totally have done it (the Crotch Threshold, though, might have been quite difficult!).

Barri Gòtic
Originally uploaded by pphaneuf.
We walked along the promenade, toward the Cap de Barcelona and the Ciutat Vella. From there, we walked into the labyrinthine Barri Gòtic, where we found strange things, such as a empty Dunkin Donuts box (proof!) and a restaurant held by a Québecois, called "Quebec" or something similar (being a wordplay on "what to drink?"), unfortunately a bit too expensive.

A beer and some walking later, we reached La Rambla, on a search for dinner. We found the Museu de l'Eròtica instead. After that, walking some more demonstrated that there was indeed a lot of people in town that night, and they were filling the restaurants. But we found the Dunkin Donuts!

We eventually managed to get a table in a not-so-cheap restaurant, having crazy sangria and steak. We bought some sketchy Spanish sparkling wine from an equally sketchy street vendor, then headed up to the Plaça de Catalunya for the stroke of midnight. I popped the cork of our bottle high in the sky, a German girl gave us streamers, we cheered with a group of English, and there was rejoicing. I dropped a quick call to a favourite person, then we headed down La Rambla again, where the celebrations kept going.

After a while, there was some sitting in a café, having some beer, where it was getting clearer to me that I didn't drink quite as much as I once did. Whee! Another lesson was that when embarking on this kind of trip, one should take a roll of toilet paper with him. Also, to withdraw more money before festivities kick off (and ATMs are dried up).

Eventually, we went back to bus stop, where the bus showed up after some more confusion and lateness. I was sleeping soundly through the whole thing, but [livejournal.com profile] azrhey tells me the driver got lost again so badly that he stopped to get his GPS device from the holds. Why he was keeping that in the holds rather than with him is up to your imagination...

While I didn't dare bring my DSLR there, some others did, including this guy, who took some nice photos that give a good idea of the mood. He had been to the NYE party at Times Square the year before, and says "the night was definitely wild compared to NYC and was a nerve-steeling sight to see".

Lalala, I'm a lazy arse, news at 11...

Friday, went to visit [livejournal.com profile] cloquewerk and [livejournal.com profile] messiahdivine with [livejournal.com profile] tygrbabe. After some fiddling around at the video store (which is of surprisingly fine quality, on Sherbrooke, just east of Decarie, beside the Subway, recommended!), we picked up The Hudsucker Proxy as a backup for our planned Meet the Feebles. Turns out it was excellent, and has Bruce Campbell in it! The future is now!

Saturday, there was some hanging out with [livejournal.com profile] swestrup and [livejournal.com profile] taxlady at [livejournal.com profile] azrhey's place, where I had way too much coffee and those "palmier" thingies. Whoa. Then, I took the lady [livejournal.com profile] azrhey out in the boonies of Mont-St-Hilaire to go to a sort-of high-school reunion. It was actually just of people from the "enriched" program our high-school had, at one of those person's house, after she decided to do a search for the alumni. Yeah, I'm easy to find, no kidding. One of my good friends who also worked with me, one of the finest programmer I've had the pleasure of hacking with, is also giving up on the computer industry, like many others are doing. I'm pondering it, sometimes, I have to admit. It was generally great, though, seeing what my schoolmates had become and all. [livejournal.com profile] azrhey commented that, compared to her high-school reunion, it was more of "what we're doing now is cool" than "do you remember how cool it was back then", which I agree and found rather nice.

Sunday, I don't remember leaving my bed much. There was some messing around with my computer infrastructure, unclogging an email jam and assorted things. I think I have an addiction to Perl, but who says that's bad? ;-)

Monday, I stayed home after work. I hacked feverishly on getting more of my computer situation sorted out, which I have to do before I can move my server to my mom's place. Almost there, almost there! Ugh.

Tuesday, [livejournal.com profile] tygrbabe and I went to visit Rem and Coco down in McMasterville. There was some BBQ, some weird cheese, some porto, some computers, some geekery, finding a lost book and subsequent forgetting of the lost book. I broke stuff. The usual silliness.

Today, I picked up my new glasses. Yay, no more broken eyewear that barely clings to my nose (it's handy having a big nose, sometimes!)! I then went to [livejournal.com profile] azrhey's place where we took some photos of ourselves to give away to some people, like moms and such. I took my tripod, but forgot my quick-release plate (which allows one to put the camera on the tripod), so I was basically carrying around heavyish aluminium tubes and fittings, for fun. Cuddling and watching some shows, as well as getting a great massage (thanks again!). I was worrying about the lady muchly recently, but turns out that tonight, it's me who's sleepless (my tummy is rebelling against me, I think, but stress probably isn't a stranger to these things). The irony...

Tomorrow, I'll be going for some pools with [livejournal.com profile] azrhey, [livejournal.com profile] gregorama, as well as possibly [livejournal.com profile] jul3z and others (I didn't keep track too closely... I'll also be paying the wonderful people at the SAAQ a visit, aren't I the nicest person ever?

[livejournal.com profile] ayria is coming over to visit this weekend (which I'm told is allegedly a long one, but I know nothing of these things), and I have to admit having a bit of a hard time containing my squeeing.

pphaneuf: (Default)
Had a massive going away party for [livejournal.com profile] azrhey and I last Friday at the office. Although I came in rather unfashionably late, the party then went quite nicely, with excellent food, some booze (can't really say my booze was excellent, but it was French!) and, of course, excellent company! At some point, I discovered that I couldn't fly. I'd like to thank [livejournal.com profile] sfllaw and [livejournal.com profile] gorbash_dragon for organizing it (they had some helpers too, I think, thanks to them as well!), and to all in attendance.

The next day, I woke up with a hangover, quite appropriately. Wasn't so bad, but just enough that I took an Advil (which I only do very rarely). Thankfully, that shooed it away successfully. After some breakfast at [livejournal.com profile] azrhey, I drove back to my place to meet with my mom, with whom we then dropped by the Blue Monday to say hello to [livejournal.com profile] tygrbabe and introduce them. One of my co-workers who lives in the area (and was at the party the day before) passed by and dropping in to say hello as well. Then went back to my place with my mom and helped her with some online car shopping. When she had to leave, I went back to pick up [livejournal.com profile] tygrbabe and did some hanging out downtown (after picking up a few forgotten items at the office from the party!).

Sunday was a bit loose. [livejournal.com profile] azrhey and I were supposed to go out and do some photography in the park near her place, but we both couldn't scrounge up the willpower to scrape ourselves up and go out, so we hung out at her place for the afternoon. Both being slightly fried, we decided that going to see Mission: Impossible III could be all right. Yeah, well, it was okay, but not all that impressive. Thankfully, we went in there for less than $2 (for the both of us), due to some coupon.

Monday, there was some brief drama, but it wasn't something bad as much as needing to talk and hold each other for a bit, in two different cases! But I really know some good people, it seems. After work, lady [livejournal.com profile] azrhey came back to my place, and we took it easy, watching some CSI: NY episodes. She corrupted my resolve to cook with pizza. Okay, I didn't have a whole lot of resolve to start with, but oh well...

Tuesday, I went to the poly cafe. Which is to say I went to Blue Monday, sat on the couch, and looked like a zombie, as I had a pretty hardcore day at work which left me just about brain-dead.

Wednesday, [livejournal.com profile] azrhey and I unlocked our cell phones. Cute, eh? We then felt the blah, as we gave up on doing some semi-active things and decided on lying in bed watching TV and cuddling instead. Not an altogether bad choice, all things considered! I also snagged a remote shutter release for my Canon EOS-20D (essential for night photography, and the one I already had for the EOS-300 and EOS-30 wasn't compatible, bastards!) cheap from my friend Jean. Nice!

Thursday (hey, that's today!), I bought another bloody bag. This one is for the tripod, and I like it already, as [livejournal.com profile] liberation_now and I have gone out to do some urban exploration, hoping to catch some nice photos. This expedition wasn't all that successful, unfortunately, but we managed to have some fun anyway, and went for coffee later on, talking politics and partying (related subjects, no?).

Today was also [livejournal.com profile] taxlady's birthday! Happy (now belated, ugh!) birthday!

Okay, some catching up to do, before I just drop the ball! What was my last week like, you may wonder? Well, okay, you probably don't, but here it is anyway!

Oh yeah. That would be me.

Old Dublin!

A quick reminder for people in Montreal!

Tuesday is Old Dublin evening, where I expect to arrive a bit past 6pm to grab dinner. It's in the back of that sketchy parking lot on University, at the corner of Cathcart (between René-Levesque and Ste-Catherine). Here's a satellite map, because I like those.

Be awesome, and be there!
pphaneuf: (Sleepy Head)
Friday, hanging out with the [livejournal.com profile] ryss_rhiannon person. Dinner, catching up on what's been happening, movie (Four Rooms, a sleeper of a good movie!) and popcorn. It was quite the awesome time.

Saturday was made of doing as little as possible (except the strict necessary), in bed. Watched more movies, while [livejournal.com profile] azrhey got herself a new mission in life.

Sunday, there was partying at [livejournal.com profile] sfllaw. Whee! That was some good partying! I was well surrounded, hehe!

This night, I had a weird dream. I dreamt that I was helping [livejournal.com profile] gregorama build himself a huge house in the shape of a barn, out of wood, while it was on a trailer rig, on the road. The point being to save time, right? There was a bunch of other friends helping out, which we zoomed the (impossibly large) thing on the highway. I was getting tired, so I went ahead and built the bed (yep, we built everything, down to the furniture!), so I could use it later. I think I woke up when I went to bed.

Kissing isn't something I do a whole lot of, or have done a whole lot of for, well, years. It feels kind of weird when I do, and I sometimes wonder if I'm just not doing it right or something. Not a worry of mine, just an amusing thought.

There's a crane outside my office window, hoisting stuff on the roof of the building next door.
pphaneuf: (Default)
So, this great weekend? Ah, yes!

Timed and checked the distance on the way there. 5 hours and 22 minutes, including a 23 minutes stop for food (at the Arby's in Kingston, of course!). This makes for an average of 120 kph, or 129 kph, for just the driving part. Doesn't sound so evil, but it includes the slow parts in Montreal and Waterloo proper, so my average on the 401 looked more like 140 kph! Yowser! Peaked at 180 kph three or four times, and oddly enough, most of the way to Kingston, I had someone following me, no matter what (including a number of those peaks!). This is a ridiculously nice car to drive, and I can't say I won't miss that when living in Europe (at least, rental cars won't have ridiculous automatic transmissions).

Arrived at around 11:30pm, straight at [livejournal.com profile] ayria's place, and stayed there until 2am or so, being shiny as hell. Chatted a bit with my host, Mr Langmaid, before hitting the sack. He was a wonderful, if only slightly invisible host (as he was completing a contractual obligation during the weekend, due for the Monday!), providing all the facilities and unrestricted access. Quite handy, thanks again!

On the Saturday, picked up [livejournal.com profile] musicdieu, [livejournal.com profile] ayria and [livejournal.com profile] thatsthetruthki to head over to [livejournal.com profile] morethanreal for some tasty pancakes and tea. [livejournal.com profile] sfllaw contacted us there, and we then headed over to [livejournal.com profile] ayria's place for meeting with him, as well as [livejournal.com profile] holdenk and [livejournal.com profile] math_foo for some Chez Geek. Stylish, as was mentioned.

We then all raided Ellison's Bistro in [livejournal.com profile] sfllaw's van for some tasty dinner. Back to [livejournal.com profile] ayria's place (with a stop at the LCBO for supplies!) for drinking, silliness and some photo slideshow. More shininess followed.

The Sunday, I pretty much already summed up, but there was a few more things. There was a stop by [livejournal.com profile] musicdieu's place after leaving [livejournal.com profile] ayria's, to try to fix up my dead music player (seemed to have worked, but this morning, trying to put some more music on it killed it again, gah!).

Some people, who obviously didn't see me today until later in the day, seemed to be under the impression that my parting time had been much worse than it had been in reality. Reading back the entry, I can understand that, but I think the following little story should dispel that myth. :-)

Quite ironically, since I was driving much less aggressively than when I arrived, I got pulled over on my way home, somewhere between Toronto and Kingston. 138 kph, I'm told. "Oh my" is my response to the officer (I wasn't surprised by the number when she told me, but when I saw her car, I glanced down, wondering how fast I was going, and had been a bit surprised). Asks me a few questions, and I answer. Now you have to picture this, this guy gets pulled over, but he's all cheerful and smiling. She must have thought I was pretty weird! The cherry on the sundae was her last question, which was whether I was in trouble with the police. I paused to consider her question, then bursted out laughing and told her that "no, not with police, at least"! I must have seemed quite charming, as she let me go with a reduced speed on the ticket. :-)

See, my weekend was going so well, even getting pulled over had to be all right, and almost fun, even!

I'm trying to fit my photo equipment and my laptop in my carry-on bag. It'll probably work out, but I'm left thinking that my SlingShot 200 is kind of a weird bag, inside.

[livejournal.com profile] ganymeade has agreed to take care of the Diva for me, thank goodness!

I'm still recovering from [livejournal.com profile] jul3z incredibly awesome birthday party. Whew, was I ever smashed! The beer, the electric jell-o, the tequila, oh my! And I managed to only cause minor damage. A girl really met me, when she went to the bathroom, but I was already using it. I think I made out with one of their cats. Scratchy kitty tongue!

Oh well, I'm all sleepy, bed now.
pphaneuf: (Sleepy Head)
At the moment, this song describes my situation pretty well.
pphaneuf: (Default)
It's pretty late now, will make this quick (trying to keep up the writing).

Decided to give the STL another try, after all these years. It sucked horribly back then, and I see it came a long way.

One of my favourite person worries me a little, I'd love to be able to be there for her, but she's too far away. Annoyed, but I'll live, and while she didn't feel like talking about it much, it didn't seem so bad, or so I'm telling myself not to worry too much. Well, it always come down to only one person being able to fix things, and that would not be me, I can only do what I can, so I will.

Later, in the company of [livejournal.com profile] cpirate, went to see [livejournal.com profile] kyn_mad_arabe and [livejournal.com profile] iangurudata at Grumpy's, and did what I can. Unexpected visit from [livejournal.com profile] emjayne, was nice seeing her, and got to meet [livejournal.com profile] zenchild.

Walked back home, very nice snowy weather, my boots making that delightful creaking sound in the snow that I love so much and that reminds me of some of my best memories of recent times. Hey, you, over there! I miss you! Yeah, I've got my hat on!

Looked for work some more. How much I am eager to have this settled and out of the way. Got some replies, of the "we're passing your resume around, don't call us, we'll call you" type, eurgh...
pphaneuf: (No Dignity)
Had a pretty confused Friday evening after work with [livejournal.com profile] azrhey, trying to find some decent food (I ended up eating Subway, that tells you how successful that was!), trying to go watch Underworld: Evolution but failing that too (hey, look at that, it's opening tonight, on a Friday night, surprise!). Ended up getting a few DVDs and curling up at home, watching Virtuosity.

Saturday was about cleaning up my rather neglected apartment, which was some success. Got some good help, which is much appreciated!

After stuffing my face with some delicious Romados chicken, I headed over to [livejournal.com profile] lola_joan's birthday party. Her flat is just so awesome, I'm quite jealous! Met a bunch of new people, finally had some of [livejournal.com profile] jul3z's now infamous jello shots, and so did [livejournal.com profile] archdiva:

See the rest of the gallery

On the negative side, I did feel a bit like a party crasher. Admittedly, I do not know [livejournal.com profile] lola_joan all that well. But I try to go out and meet people, and she's one of those people that I see electronically all the time, but never get to see much of in real life. Thanks to a subtle combination being shy and feeling like an idiot, didn't even talk to her much. Well done.

Felt like walking and quieter company a bit, so I walked [livejournal.com profile] moonlightjoy to her place. Was nice chatting with her, seeing that being a girl isn't even nearly enough to understand them is kind of reassuring, in a weird way. I found myself getting a bit emotional after I walked back to my place via Green, crossing the Lionel-Groulx park. My memory is most easily triggered visually, and it triggered some crud that was laying around, apparently. Enough that I'd stop walking and just look around to wallow in it for a bit. Got through it, and curled up in bed with the Diva. :-)
pphaneuf: (Default)
So, apparently, I don't like children. [livejournal.com profile] blacksquiggles tells her kids that when I come over, can you believe that? LOL!

[livejournal.com profile] chickcurious's children try to slay her all day (while her cats try to kill her all night), and this all seemed rather charming to me!

Had a great time, watching the people puke in the stairs in front of the Hatters, and so on and so forth. [livejournal.com profile] cpirate seemed to have a great time. [livejournal.com profile] briankit pitched in when they were trying to scrounge up money to give in so that I would snort relish. Yeah, um... No.

[livejournal.com profile] xipetotec, quite wisely, kept quiet.

I went and used [livejournal.com profile] azrhey's gift certificate to buy myself some really cool shades, some Oakley Whisker, black frames with black iridium lenses. So cool! There was a titanium version of those, but they were, um, a notch more expensive, shall we say.

Went to [livejournal.com profile] archdiva's little evening of chilling, and chilling happened indeed!

Saturday was made of driving up and down Côte-Des-Neiges, having some of that awesome Pho Lien tonkinese soup I've been hankering for a while, attempting to see a movie (but seeing this unexplicable thing instead), having some cold coffee, then finally having it exchanged for properly hot coffee. Then headed to [livejournal.com profile] messiahdivine's new year's eve party, where much fun was had and many people were met. Yes, I was drunk, but it was fun! I paid for it with a bit of hangover, but I've had worse, assuredly.

Today was only going out for some breakfast at Cora, then a few video rentals, and spending the day in bed. Ah, we truly live in enlightened times!
