WYSIWYG, Beer and Walking.
The city seems all the more interesting when you're walking through it drunk. Everything out of place is much more amusing and funny too.
I attended WYSIWYG last night, meeting up with Joe, Chris and Aaron. It was definitely a good time. The material was very funny and told in different styles which made for an eclectic evening. Even the most mundane reading had facets that were thought provoking, esp. in regards to the phenomenom of blogging.
After the show, the gang and I went over to the Phoenix. The WYSIWYG group encourages the audience to join them for a drink at some other bar, but the gay boys, like us, wanted to go to the Phoenix. Next time, we'll have to announce it. I'm sure some of the other boys would join and would probably prefer it. Might've given Aaron a chance to propose to Andy Horowitz.
We all bought each other rounds, so thankfully there was only four of us. If it was 5 or 6 of us... I can't hold my alcohol that well. Urp. They're a fine bunch of guys to chill out with. Topics of dicussion were WYSIWYG, other bloggers, sex, acid trips and Viagra®.
Four beers was my limit. I called it a night around 11:30, I had a long ride ahead of me. Said my goodbyes and happily walked out in to the night. Unfortunately I missed going to The Cock. Dang.
Well... the walk to the train station was fun. I'm a happy drunk thankfully and 14th Street was full of activity at night. All the little oddities/people elicited chuckles from me. I had a shit-eating grin, a dumb smirk that wouldn't go away and all the lights sparkled brightly. Ah well. I focused enough to make sure that I didn't get myself killed crossing the street, but not enough to spoil my inebriated state.
Arriving at the train, unscathed, the PSP kept me busy on the way home. Button mashing is easy. I actually made progress in Untold Legends. Heh.
Home 12:30. Safe and sound. No crazy straight people around. Whew.
