With too much booze but lots of yummy food, and a backed up kitchen with a kickass waiter who made up for it by bringing us free fries (before he took our orders, even -- I like a server who makes pre-emptive amends) and only charging me for the burger I originally ordered rather than the steak I had to get instead when they were out of burgers. And good company, of course, although that's pretty much a given on Thursday nights. So overall, I count my evening as a rousing success.
And now it's a little late and I'm a lot tired (possibly largely because of those three drinks I had, and also because of work ughness, but I'm really not going to get into that when I'm in this state of mind), so it's time for me to head to bed. Good night, Internets.
