State of the Betty Address

I do not feel well. I felt worse yesterday, but I am still not 100% today. So I don't think it was just the massive amount of alcohol I drank on Wednesday night. It might be something else.

All that aside, I have a date tonight, as I have said before and probably one next week if GC decides he can pry himself away from his desk. He works, I understand and appreciate this, but still.

Let me tell you about my Wednesday, in all the graphic details I know you are all clamoring for.

Wednesday: 7:30pm - Vieve arrives at my house. I have just hopped out of the shower. I was of course running late because my cat nap ran over.

8:15pm - Arrive at bar, find rock star parking right out front, go in, order beers.

8:35pm - Lead singer of band asks if we are going in to see them play, we say "absolutely" and walk into other room. Hey, it's a free concert.

Band plays for an hour. They are OK, the lead singer, Justin, is very talented. But his sound does not really go with the band as a whole and would do much better to strike out on his own.

The second band is very good and Vieve and I might go see them again.

We meet Kelly (the Stripper) and Paul (the Contractor), a lovely couple who are sitting in front of us who invite us to go with them to the next bar.

Justin, the lead singer sits down with us for a bit, we chat and he buys V and me shots (the count is currently 2 beers and 2 shots).

We go to the next bar. Just a note, bars in this particular town, kinda suck and the second bar blows.

Much is blurry after this but I distinctly remember using the restroom in front of Kelly the Stripper, helping her buy drinks for some college boys and throwing up in the men's room sink.

Vieve drove me home after that during a fit of hiccups (mine, not hers) and I passed out safely in my bed, behind locked doors.

Also, I got a free CD from Band-Boy and he followed us to the second bar.

In the end it was 4 shots, 2 beers, 1 CD, all free except for 1 beer.

Nice... How many times have you uttered "I AM NEVER DRINKING AGAIN"? :) I think I retired that line in college.

I have uttered it 3 times. And I always go back on my word.
