This year, I really do want to have more fun and put myself out there. Hence, when my friend AP invited me to a last-minute birthday dinner with her and a few friends, I agreed. We had delicious hot pot and sake and it was awesome. Of course, they wanted to continue the party so I went with her, her roommate, and their BFF to Smuggler's Cove to drink delicious tiki cocktails. I can't believe I've never been to that bar before - they have some amazing rum drinks and the bartenders know their shit. I'm usually not a rum girl, but even I was able to find several drinks to knock back quickly. Add a punch bowl to that and instant intoxication! Yay!
I wonder if I'll ever be an adult because I am forever making poor alcohol decisions. I also love talking about random sex shit when I drink, so I had to tell everyone about my traumatic porn viewing experience, while also telling them about blood play (warning: NSFW if you Google it and not for the faint of heart). My favorite moment of the night was these trashed as hell Marin chicks who came and pretty much flirted with everyone in our circle, male and female alike. I'm happy I keep my drunk touchy-feely self to people I know. I do have a soft spot for bridge & tunnel folk, though. I spent most of my life living on Long Island, commuting into Manhattan for wild sprees of drinking and craziness, followed by a mad dash to catch the 1am Drunk Train. After we managed to get the girls to leave, we closed out the bar and went home. I got home at 2am (clearly, I was not going to work this morning) and stayed up reading til 3am. Today, I spent laying in bed in a semi-hungover state, napping and waking up intermittently to answer work emails. Thank God, boss and boss' boss were out of the office.
In more productive resolution news, AP's roommate offered to go hiking with us, so I now have some hiking buddies to further my desire to be a more active, outdoorsy California girl in the new year. I also got my Zipcar membership card, so I can start renting cars to do my grocery shopping errands and make my life a little bit easier. Yay! It's fun to have goals!
Anyway, trainer tomorrow... so let me get myself in bed.
