high-heeled speed drinking

fuzzy lights

We got out late, left my house at 11, spent the requisite fifteen
minutes trying to find a parking space. Ducked into Tiki's for a
drink, skipped out to see how close we could get to Jackson Square
in the 10 minutes before midnight. Walking, drinking, trying to
take pictures at the same time.

clear!

I learn how to set my camera to long range, (that drink finished,
therefore hands are both free) and we duck into the old bar at
Tujague's for another one. Caught a few fireworks.

Stopped on someone's front stoop to sit down and discuss linguistics,
calculus, and shoes. Shouldn't have worn these shoes already.
Next bar, some loser offers to buy me another drink when I have
two sitting in front of me. Nice one, slick.

I've been lame and half-drinking most of my stuff, and switch to
diet coke when we get to the gay bar to hang out on the balcony,
and it's only 1. ("He's not that gay if he's checking me out like
that.") Some more walking around to find food and caffeine and
we head back to my house about three to go hang out with all the
uptown peoples.

pretty but deadly

I get out of those damned things, we take the dog out and get
some beer and head down the street (on foot) to see what the
suits-and-dresses white folks dancing to 90s hiphop are up to,
(Tulane represent!) get to Magazine and hang out up there for
a while. Eventually it's 6am and we're in a bar arguing the
finer points of various NFL teams and finalized playoffs, and
y'all, we really need to see the Saints against the Jets in
the superbowl. Home, pop-up video off the tivo, and sleep.

Happy fucking new year.

Them are some heels all right. Flannel pinstripes?

All right.

...linguistics, calculus and shoes...

Uh-huh.

They're wool, I think.

Linguistics because my friend's studying it, and I took a class in it 10 years ago. Calculus because I have to re-learn third-semester calculus this semester, and go take more fun high maths.

Shoes, well, that was just complaining. :)

You're too damn cool C.

If by cool you mean has no life due working too much and goes out occasionally and buys cool shoes to try to make up for it. I suppose, then.
