Wild and Crazy Girl Out on the Town

So. Very. Thirsty. On Friday night I met up with a few of my fellow mommy bloggers for drinks at a pub. I was kind of nervous all day, like I was going on a blind date or something - only I wasn't worried whether or not I would be getting lucky at night's end. (I didn't, in case you're wondering - Mr Earth was asleep). Despite the two days of near dehydration, I'm so glad I went. It was very cool to finally meet the pretty faces behind the words. I had such a good time, in fact, that I have been unable to write about it coherently for two days. I'd like to blame it on copious amounts of alcohol, but I only had two Smirnoffs so sadly, I think it's just the mere fact that I'm old. It was quite the night for me...I drank alcohol (in public, not in my basement in front of the Teevee)! I was outside the house after 8pm (lockdown at Casa Earth)! I didn't go to bed till early the next morning (not passed out at 9:30pm)! I met a fabulous bunch of ladies who I hope to see again! AND...we ended the night with chocolate. Good times. (If you're wondering who the crazy lady riding the subway at midnight with three chocolate bars in her greedy mitts was, that, my friends, was me).

Last night we went to see MacIvor's House at Buddies in Bad Times. I'm doing a paper on it for one of my courses, so technically it counts as homework. Elated by eating dinner at a restaurant sans kid and apparently learning nothing from my hungover dehydrated state, Mr Earth and I polished off a bottle of wine before the show. Nothing like doing homework while drunk. (I'm not an alcoholic, shut up!). This is what happens when I'm given some freedom - my weekend turns into drunken debauchery. Anyways the show - if you live in the area and want to see a great show, I highly recommend it. And it's only an hour and fifteen minutes with no intermission, so those of you (like me) who can rarely stay out late anymore without falling asleep will be home early. Part of Buddies' Creator/Performer series, it will be MacIvor's last time performing the show as he is closing his company da da kamera to move on to other projects. It's billed as a "sit-down, stand-up, one-man comedy nightmare", and I dare you not to laugh. It runs till April.

Hey - how did this post turn into a plug for Buddies? All in all, I had a fun crazy weekend. Rarely do I do anything more exciting than ordering an extra shot in my latte. I need to sleep now, thank you. Gotta get ready for the next time! I hope...

It was great meeting you. Would love to do it again soon. And let's do the playdate as soon as we get thru this term.

How late into April? she questioned in the hopes that she might take it in.

NotSoSage said...

I was so sorry to miss it and I'm even more sorry hearing everyone's stories. Next time, I hope!

I would love to go see the show. Hmm...I've got a month to arrange for it, somehow. We'll see what we can do.

Doesn't everyone do their homework drunk? Oh, maybe THAT'S my problem.

Dude, I was so glad to meet you Friday and I didn't even get a chance to talk to you since I was whining about my blog issues and stuff. Next time I'm sitting next to you to try and get a convo in. That said - what is your email address!!??!! - I've wanted to send you a note and can't find it anywhere. Send me one at motherbumper at gmail dot com. Or maybe you don't want me to know and that, my dear, will make me weep in my beer (sob).

Sounds wonderful! I've gotta come to Toronto sometime.

oh lordy, i'm in the conked-out-at-9:30 club, and often complain that the early movies start too early, and the late movies start after bedtime! yeesh.

You had exactly the weekend that I was wishing for. Sorry that I missed out on meeting you. I'm looking forward to the next time.

Hey, it was great to meet you, too!

I'm glad to see Buddies still going strong - my parents designed that theatre and even helped construct part of it to keep it in budget, and I helped solve some of the design dilemmas while I worked with them, so it has a bit of a special place in my heart.
