I'm trying to not go into the ER. I do have an invite to festivities, and the modified socialising I've been doing with my sister here has been kinda successful, but I just don't know.
Last night was supposed to be a strip club outing--got three instructors to come out, including the 18 year old (hence earlier questions), but there was major bailing and most of them came back to my apartment to watch
instead. I made it through 15 minutes of the movie and had to ditch them and go to bed. My sister's still miffed about missing the stripping though.
The oral dilaudid I just took dragged the headache down from a 9 to an 8 or so, but I sorely resent temporary pain relief. I want the effect to be longer than the drug's lifetime in my bloodstream.
Ooops. Post wasn't to be about that.
Maybe I'll just send my sister to the NYE party without me. She's been hitting it off pretty well with the krav people so far. Some of them might not notice the difference.
Aims and I are going to our friends' annual NYE Get Fucked Up Party.
It became a tradition whilst we were in SoCal. S and J (aforementioned friends) held a NYE party that promised nothing more than booze, booze, booze and booze. Wackiness was destined to ensue.
So solid is the tradition that when, a couple of years ago, S and J were contemplating actually NOT BEING IN TOWN for NYE, another friend said "Okay, but you're still throwing the Party."
"But we won't be in town," they sensibly replied.
"Doesn't matter," they were told. "We'll break into your house and you will still get to host the Party. But, by God, host the Party you will!"
And so they did. Host. Not get burgled.
This year they have the attraction of Now With 100% More Hot Tub!
It should be fun.
Would need a flask first.
Go. Buy. A. Flask.
Seriously. I mean, that's just logic right there.
That looks yummy, Matt. Please be super careful if you decide to drive. I prefer to avoid driving on NYE.
Hey, my 40th is coming up....someone could gift me with a flask.
Well....it could happen.
Tonight Matt is playing at t local restaurant from 6 to 10. possibly he will join the other band from 10 to 12. I am eating at 6 with friends at the restaurant, not sure how I will make it to midnight.
Dinner should be very good - NYE menu isn't up on their site, but the normal dinner menu is up
Oh, I'm not supposed to drink at all because of my cholesterol meds, Laura. I'll break the doctor's orders for one glass of dessert wine to mark the occasion, but there will be no tipsiness from that, let alone a repeat of last year's rusty nail/absinthe/goldschläger liver mangling.
I'm actually driving to Racine for a super swanky dinner party tonight. In fact, I need to shower and put on clothes and leave v. soon for that party. I made crab cheesecake and shrimp phyllo cups. I was designated the fish course. Seafood works, right?
