Hello, Vegas? We'd like some more alcohol
So last Saturday night I did you all the great disservice of live-blogging my consumption of a bottle of wine complete with PhotoBooth pictures. I'm not a very good typer generally: since I type on this all day long at work, I tend to get sloppy on my MacBook's breathe-near-the-keys-to-spell keyboard, and I'm an awful typer while drinking. Good luck deciphering what nonsense (really) I'm plaguing you with. This is completely unedited. Obvs.
Greetings. I am at a local restaurant (only three blocks from my house). I used to have this rule about pajama pants and where you could wear them in public. Basically, if it was within your immediate sphere of life then you could totally do it. I don't remember ever following this rule (I wear pajama pants whenever I damn well feel like it), but it was an excuse I spouted forth to judgey eyes. Well, I'm employing a variation of that rule tonight. No, I'm wearing real pants, but I've brought my computer to a sit down restaurant. I'm getting some looks, but eh, this in my sphere of life. I'm joined by Amanda who was originally going to share the bottle with me and is now telling me I'm going to have to drink it all.
Crepes are for dinner and I'm starting with a bottle of Big House White ($20 a bottle!). I just ordered a mushroom chicken crepe served on a pile of scalloped potatoes. Glass one, here I come!
The wine is really cold. Amanda tried to refill my glass before I was finished. I yelled! "I am doing a project! Glass counts are important!" Whenever I type, she pulls out her Blackberry. We're like that couple that can't talk to each other.
Glass Two down!
We have talked about:
church some more
people who dont beleive in psychology (wha???)
Amanda swears that the same people keep walking bye. OVER AND OVER AGAIN. ("I swear.") the guy ehind me is reading the menu outloud to his date. "I've never been here for dinner." My server, VERONICA, just tried to take my plate away. "I'm not DONE YET!" I yelled on account of there are AT LEAST three bites left
I have to pee really bad but waited til I finished the glass. Amanda says that if I go pee, I wn't be druk anymore. LIES.
We've finsihed our dinner crepes adn dessert crepes (I got nutella, starwberries and bananas crepes for dessert, delish). There is still a glass left in the bottle. I can't drink it right now. CRISIS. I' puting the botttle in my purse and we're going to drink it athe salvation army. standard. teh wine is up to nmy nexct. nect. neck. dammit. amanda hates dogs. do you htin it's ironic if a "my other car is.." car has the type of other car following it? i dnt think nso. mamadna does. hang, on , im going to show yuo a weird poster:
