Had dinner with the_silent_one last night at Garduno’s on 17th. The food was ok, although we both agreed that it was too American and not Italian enough. I had spaghetti carbonara and a glass of Pinot Grigio. I managed to spill half a glass of her chianti on her and she was really nice about it.
Then a long blab session at D’s with genericus. Red Faced Bible Mike was once again there. He has now died his hair dark and is cultivating a goatee, in what appears to be an attempt to become a youth pastor.
At Garduno’s there was an old gent with a t-shirt that said “Taxation Equals Slavery” on the front and a series of quotes from Ayn Rand and the Founding Fathers against taxation on the back.
genericus told us about a friend of his who liked getting high but was way too busy in law school to do so. He therefore got high on nitrous because it was a quick cooldown. This gave me yet another brilliant marketing idea: alcoholic beverages that are chemically engineered to eliminate quickly, for about a 30 minute buzz. Possible names for them are: Jack Daniels Thoroughbred; Absolut Rush; Captain Morgan’s Clipper Ship; and Zippybrau.
It was nice to see bruisedhips at D’s, if only briefly.
