what’s the capital of scotland?

it was another exhausting saturday night at the concierge desk. i had worked alongside dar. [as you remember, (or not),  she, her BayAreaBoyfriend, and Aries and I became total BFF during the employee trip to SixFags a few weeks back.]

anyway, where was i? dar totally scored a tons of stuff (luggage, purses, clothes, wine) from hotel guests who were moving–or something like that, and earlier that day she met lotsa people from her alma mater, so she was on a high after work. she felt like she had just been on a game show!

she and i decided to celebrate with a drink. she called BayAreaBoyfriend, and he’d been drinkin at theEdinburgh Castle since about 6pm.  we get there, and the dance floor is hoppin, the DJ is pumpin tunes from the late90s and early 00s. (YEAH!)

i was surprised at how much fun i was having. because I always remember Edinburgh Castle as a place of beer-from-taps-that-haven’t-been-cleaned-since-the-place-opened-in-the-70s; and boring-as-fuck trivia nights. bleah. (even though, according to their website, it’s been voted the best trivia night several years running. *what-EVER*)

anyway, it was fun to listen to late 90s early 00s throwback. (thong song, mariah carey, destiny’s child!) and the several shots of jamesons certainly fueled the fun.

CrazyCzech met us after work, and some random friends stopped by too. several drinks later, the consensus was to go sing karaoke. (kara-OKAY!!). it gets a little hazy here–BayAreaBoyfriend was being aggressive–dar tells us it’s a common occurence–i suggest that perhaps its a result of all the testosterone pumping through his little body. she is only somewhat amused. they leave to get some food into him, and the other two are rounding up some alcohol–i think.

suddenly, it’s me and crazyczech. so we have another beer. (a kilt-lifter for me. it’s a local brew!)

next comes pizza, and lotsa gummi bears, and the next morning, a slightly hungover blogger.

good times.




collective thoughts

28 jan 2011 friday.

i went on a bender last night with aries.  what the hell, it was thursday night, and i hadn’t drank since at least, uh, monday. 

(sidebar: monday we went to the midnight sun and the mix and apparently also went to moby dicks.  i crashed over there, and the next morn, we tried to piece the night together via my twitters and txts.  apparently, fernet was involved.  ’nuff said.)

so we started at the LushLounge.  a few manhattans-on-the-rocks later, the blazing lights of last call and a freshly poured shot of fernet was staring me . 

we were smart enough to go home.  (or so i thought.)

somehow, we think it’s a good idea to go to the grubstake. (but really, isn’t it always a good idea to go to the grubstake?–verde fire sauce:  yum-mmers!)  

at the grubstake, i run into one of the former cocktail servers from the RWR. since it’s 2am, we’re fully intoxicated. thus we are BFF.  we hug. we kiss.  we hug again.  (because we love each other… duh!)

in other news, i’ve been working a lot lately.  between this job and covering shifts at the former job, i’ve been working quite a few double shifts = 16hour days.  exhausting.  i’m crazy. 

but it all works out in the end, because it’s Amy’s bday this week.  CrazyCzech and I are going to LA to celebrate with her at six fags, i mean, six flags.  good times!  employee rate wasn’t avail at current hotel, but i got the employee rate at former hotel.   kick-ass.  and car rental will be provided by zipcar.  (look at me, single-handedly saving the world through car sharing. i rule!)

i went snowboarding A LOT in december.  i also visited the fam in vega$.  (they didn’t annoy me so much this time)

snowboarding again, solo.  then again with the CrazyCzechs. and met more of them who were on assigment visiting from Flori-duh.  

after all this hanging out with people, i went on a mucn-needed sabbatical. re-organized my photos/apt/life and didn’t talk to a damn person for 2 days. 

although, JNayNay and I went out on a date because we love each other.  we started out at the hi tide, and went to gitane.

omg. speaking of hi tide!  justin theroux was at the hotel the other day, and one of our cocktail servers totally hooked up with him.  nothing major. they kissed. he invited her to his hotel room.  SCANDALOUS.

a couple months ago, JNayNay and i went on a bender in the marina.  bluelight, Liverpool lil’s, and final final.  good times.

a few weeks back, i went out with JMcD. haven’t seen him in a while.  so we went to the Tempest. 3 drinks later, i was drunk-a-licious.

new year’s eve, me and CrazyCzech went to boooootieSF (which had a line that was waaaaaayyyyy tooooooo long even though we already bought tix–such bullshit) and trigger.  good good times.  a great way to kick-start 2011.

there’s much more to say. and maybe ill say more of it later.
