hours i'll never have back...

hmm, those blurry pix are good for something.
an evening of surreal experiences.  a non-native speaker of english informing me that my accent wasn't american, and therefore i couldn't possibly be american and that i was most definitely not a native speaker of english. this despite my use of the word "quandry" immediately prior to his statement. another proclaiming multiple times about how since he was from a country of 5 million people (give you three guesses which one that is and the first two don't count) and thus understood spin much better than anyone else. (huh?) a realization that not being drunk among a bunch of drunk people is a lot less fun that you might think.  kind of like being in a salvador dali painting without your own elephant.

i need to be more careful with my time.

just had to get that out of my system.

Since I do no drink, I know all too well of what you speak.

As a teetotaller, I studiously avoid those who are drunk. Just haven't the patience any more. I did enjoy the Dali analogy though.
