Friday night I stopped by Itta Bena, after being told there would be a “Sex and the City” party there. I’ve never seen the TV show and have no intention of ever seeing the movie, but something about the way the party was described to me (I think it was “drink specials”) made me want to go.
I guess I need to read Wikipedia’s page on Sex and the City and figure out what the hell this TV show/movie is all about and why girls like it so much. The drink specials were named after characters I had never heard of, like “Carrie” and “Samantha” and “Charlotte” and “Mr. Big.” They were, needless to say, fruity girlie drinks. I didn’t care though; they contained lots of alcohol and were cheap, and besides I hate regular martinis anyway (they taste like something you’d put in a car to make it run better) and prefer the flavored ones. Here’s a pic of me drinking one of the girlie martinis:
Awww, isn’t that cute? They even gave me a coaster for the fruity-ass girl martini, designed to look like a pink high-heeled shoe. I wanted to shoot myself drinking this thing. Had a conversation with my friend Suzy about high heeled shoes… “I forgot to wear my FMPs,” Suzy told me.
“FMPs? What are those?” I asked.
“F**k Me Pumps,” Suzy replied. “Haven’t you heard about them? It’s all about the shoes.”
“Maybe for women it is,” I told her. “Guys don’t care about shoes. After all, June is not ‘Shoe Month’ in my blog.”
I hate to admit it but that is a pretty good pic of me… maybe I’ll make it my new MySpace/Facebook profile pic.
Couple more pics from Friday night:
The streamer from the balloons obscured bartender Sam’s face in the shot above, so he insisted on re-shooting it:
Coming soon: A new people-watching game I dreamed up last night while watching Aquanet’s performance at the Saucer.
I will announce my BFF of the Month for June tomorrow, so be sure to check back. If candidates for BFF of the Month want to do any last-minute lobbying, they’d better do it today.
Skipping brunch today. I’m going to start doing that every once in a while, just to allow myself to stay out later on Saturday night without being sleep-deprived on Sunday morning (because I’m already sleep-deprived five days of the week as it is). No offense to the Blue Monkey, which was on the brunch crew’s agenda for today. Looks like we’re going to continue doing the 2-and-2, with the Monkey getting us for two weeks then the Majestic Grille getting us for two.
You know how was complaining about file imports at work last week? Had a large file that kept bombing when I tried to insert it into a database. Sat at the damn desk all week and couldn’t figure out what was wrong. So when did I figure out a solution to the problem… while sitting at the Saucer drinking a beer. I wasn’t even thinking about the problem and the idea popped into my head. I’m starting to think work should let me just take my laptop to the Saucer and Remote Desktop into my office computer. I have a lot more good ideas at bars than I do sitting in a desk chair.
On the agenda for today: Crawfish boil at Calhoun’s (opens at 3:30; boil starts at 4; only 100 lbs., so if you want crawfish, you better be there not long after 4). I pretty much have to be there, as I have an open tab from last night. Not that I’d miss it anyway. After that, the usual stop by the Saucer to see my waitresses, then on to Huey’s to catch the Dempseys. Show starts at 8:30, so I’ll try to get there by 7:45 so I have time to get a good seat and eat a burger before they start playing.
