Went out with a few friends tonight to celebrate the college graduation of our youngest friend Laura
, and it was fun to see her not be super quiet - she seemed to have a good time which was really cool since the night was all about her*.
First we went to a steak and seafood place called the Boston Hotel Steak and Seafood restaurant. I've been there before, and knew that their king crab was reasonably priced for around here, that the food was good, and that it was a perfect dive atmosphere for the group that we had. All in all, it was pretty nice to me. I hope everyone enjoyed their food as much as I did, but I don't know that they did - I was the last one savoring my food, so my assumption is they stuffed it down to get the bad taste out of the way. People do that, right?
Afterwards we tried to go bowling, and it was closed. Closed so completely that the owner leaving it gave us a look
for asking if it was closed and where we might be able to go to bowl since he said it was closed. Ended up he couldn't think of any bowling alley that would be open on a Sunday "this time of year." So we went for ice cream. Yay Dairy Queen!
Following a brief yet messy and satisfying ice cream fight (I won) we decided to try one more bowling place. Earl
was outgoing and proactive like normal, and called ahead to see if they were open.
They were, and they had $1 games for the night
The only part about bowling that will be spoken of is the fact that I won the first game with a 124 - probably my best game, ever. After that, well, we shall not speak of the fact that I couldn't break 100 if my life had depended on it. It was my shoes. They were sticky. Or sliding. Whichever is worse.
Great night. I'm always happy to hang out with good friends and get in some good times. I think everyone had fun, and that means a lot to me. I just like it when plans work out for everyone. I'm strange like that.
Now? Definately bed time. I've had a long day, and I don't even know if I have work tomorrow.*Well, her and good food. What? Good food goes with everything.
