Friday's Lesson

Here at Two-Timing the Cosmos, I like to make mistakes so you don't have to. Here's Friday's Lesson for you all:

If you're going to head over to an art show straight from work and liberally partake of the free beverages (and you wondered why they ran out), then go home around 8, immediately change clothes and head over to Cue for some more beers with a friend and the roommate, then go straight over to DC9 for, you know, a few more beers, then for the love of all that is holy, at some point in the evening sit your ass down and EAT SOME FOOD.

Oh sure, you might have a slightly bizarre, but fun time. You might see some pretty cool graf and even leave your own tag on the wall (TTtC - holla!). (No, I didn't really write that, but I did write 'VTA,' cause it's all about the 805, bitches.) You might even run into the art world's social chair, who will introduce you to half the people on the planet. You'll meet some fellow bloggers, gallery owners, and other interesting people, and walk away with a fistfull of business cards. Then, you'll come home and convince your old maid of a roommate to come out for a beer - unbelievably! - and watch him talk with your funky dj friend about Boston like they were old drinking buddies. Sure, it'll be a good time.

Until the next morning when you wake up at TEN-THIRTY, wrecked, and start cashing in on the good will you've racked up over the last month with your boss. You'll roll into the office around noon, running into a friend in the elevator who points out your tardiness loudly enough for the other passengers to look over when he says in a mocking voice, "Insomnia again?" Around 3pm, the hangover will finally start to kick in, just as you're talking with Chai about her martini happy hour this evening. You'll totally regret coming to work at all when your boss makes you, like, work. And basically, you'll kick yourself for your empty-stomach drinking.

So your lesson for the day is: Dinner - Just Do It!

More later on Wall Snatchers. Photos galore!

Yeah, um, I had a house salad somewhere between Wall Snatchers and the Big Hunt. It didn't cut it. But I did get to work by 9:45!

Great to meet you yesterday. See you soon!

Lenny, I refuse to listen to a man who likes green apple chewing gum. :)

What we need is a chewing gum that prevents hangovers!

You had to have a night like that. Because we who belong to your blogging fan club love when you write the posts describing it later.

I guess I should have said, "Here at Two-Timing the Cosmos, I make the mistakes for your entertainment."

Which, yeah, is pretty much true.

Hey, don't be ashamed that you have a life! I'd rather be making "harmless errors" than stuck in Yuckyfuckytucky.
