All My Friends
It's late......or early, depending on what side of midnight your life revolves around. For me, it's late. Way late. Or WAY early, even for my body clock.
We were invited to dinner at a couples house last night. I knew better to ask who else would be in attendance. I never want to base my acceptance on who else will be there, just as I don't want people doing that when we have a soiree.
As it turns out, of the eight others, we knew six. And the two we didn't - I LOVED! Fun and funny - I immediately took to them. I suppose it is possible I've met them at Gay Guy's Happy Hour - I think I have, but not 100% sure and they certainly didn't seem to recognize me. No surprise there. You know me - I blend into the wall.
But dinner and drinks were good. A very casual meal, but very well done, as only David & James can do. Well, that might be a slight exaggeration. But they do do it well. (yes Morty, I said do-do.)
The conversation went from witty, to sophomoric to sexual to political in a few quick minutes, but everyone had something to contribute and no one judged anyone for their opinions and some things got lively. It was fun even if/when you disagreed.
Between this and the last day on the job (today!), it was a perfect way to end the year.
Well, tonite I suppose is the true end of the year. No big celebration for us. Maybe movie #12 and then the next day: movie #1-2010!
Ok, off to bed for me. I suspect I will not be making my 5:30 gym call, which isn't all that far away from right now. Yeah - not gonna happen. I'll go after work.
