Oh, that reminds me, I never wrote about last weekend... it ruled. I ended up going to bannanna's party and finally got to meet her after almost two years of knowing each other online. She rocks! I also met a lot of cool people that I would add on LJ if only I could remember their usernames. Was much fun and I was out till after six in the morning.
Then, after three hours of sleep I dragged my carcass out of bed and headed over to streamweaver's for my first gaming session with his group. Scott and Courtney are the absolute bomb, and I think the character they helped me create (a runaway peasant girl turned circus performer turned sword-and-dagger swashbuckler, named Martina) is going to be a lot of fun to play. Scott's a terrific GM. After gaming, we were having such a good time that we ended up shooting the breeze for the rest of the afternoon. Oh, and they have cute kitties!
Saturday night I headed to a Club Atlanta party for Shally's birthday. I had promised Shally and Stefi I was coming and I wasn't going to miss it, but by this point I was so tired that I really wasn't much fun. I realized after one drink if I had another I would most likely fall asleep, so I was much more sedate than usual. Oh, everyone started doing these shots called Statue of Liberty, where you take Sambuca and some coffee beans and light it on fire and dip your finger in the flame and lick it off and then do the shot. I tried to beg off because I had to drive, but it was only about half a shot of liquor and I wasn't leaving yet anyway, so I did it (despite my oversensitivity to heat -- as in, I make somebody else pour the sake). That thing was NASTY. I was supposed to chew the coffee beans, but I was in such a hurry to get the nasty licorice taste out of my mouth that I swallowed them whole. Yech. But it was a fun time.
Then Sunday morning I was up early to brunch with the lovely indiepunkrock in honor of her 21st birthday. Swim, I'm sorry I missed Saturday night. You've got to come up to Atlanta sometime soon and we'll all go out!
After that, I went to Criminal for my comics fix, then home and and back to bed.
But anyway, I don't think I got caught up on my sleep at any point, and I'm not bloody likely to do it this weekend either because I've got Margarita Friday and two gaming sessions. (Good grief, how did I get into this many games? I don't know how long I can keep it up.) So anyway, I need to wake up like NOW. It wouldn't do to have me falling asleep in my margarita (though I'm sure it would amuse 10dimensions, but she's done with her drinking project so I no longer have that excuse to act like an idiot).
