sweaty guy w/ bottle opener
so i'm the guy with the bottle opener. that fact became clear to me this evening. my friend held a birthday party and everyone brought beer. some of us picked up fancied up bottles of beer that can't just be twisted off. and i was the only person out of 30 who had a bottle opener. what a chore! but what a great way to meet people?
i've had the same plastic key chain bottle opener since the fall of '92. it was a promo item my freshman year of college - a gift from the radio station. the college radio station that was my home away from the dorm rooms for so many nights. the radio station where i met so many great people (some of whom were at the party tonight).
conversation veered from working out to the superfriends to marriage to grilling techniques. it really was a swell evening. and not as drunken last night.
last night was the drunkest i've been in ages. lots of stumbling home and consuming as much water as possible. and! get this! i was in bed before midnight! a rare, rare thing!
i just had an orange freezer stick thing (referred to earlier by their proper name).
tuesday i ordered a few plants on-line. i'm an addict, i think. i'll have to reconfigure the space by the windows in order to get all the plants where they need to be. proper light and all.
