Susie pointed out that my initial details of our girl's night out were sparse.
She went so far as to proclaim the events of the evening qualified as a debacle and a drunken one at that.
I think not.
After dropping Mr. Ratburn and Lil Rita at the Moore Hotel, we made our way to the adjoining bar.
We neither of us had extensive experience at ordering drinks, but we managed to muddle our way through (she had "Jack with a coke back" and the bartender suggested a vodka and cranberry to me).
The Nitelite is well known for the strength of its drinks.
Their Long Island ice tea is enough to fell several grown men.
How do I know this?
Allow me to digress.
In the last weekend of July, 2005 a friend (April) I'd originally met online and I got together in Seattle and spend the day wandering a bit. We met the local Village Idiot for a coffee and a visit to Bud's Jazz Records.
THEN we went to the NiteLite.
We had arranged to meet several other people from our trivia chatroom and a lovely time was had by all.
I ordered a legendary Long Island ice tea and the three people at my end of the table helped me drink it.
Around midnight April and I were singing an old jazz standard into something (a pen, I believe) and a comment was made about the level of our intoxication. Avvy was, in fact, deeply and impressively drunk, but the guy who'd been sitting next to me pointed out that I had been drinking nothing for the last two hours but Sprite™ thus proving I am as goofy and clumsy when completely stone cold sober as most people are right before they start drunk dialing.
After we closed the bar down April and I retired to a room at the hotel where we slept together.
THIS July, Susie and I sat at the counter in the window and talked and laughed and people watched.
The regulars were easy to pick out as they greeted the bouncer and were handed drinks without having to order.
After we'd been there almost two hours I offered to get us both another drink
We had a brief convo about intoxication and then I fetched our second round.
By this time the concert at the Moore had ended and into the mixture of locals and tourists in the bar there was added the post concert crowd.
Susie told me all kinds of embarassing secrets (available to the highest bidder, offers accepted through email only) and I told her all kinds of lies (nothing she says I said is true, NOT A WORD!!!).
Anyway, we switched over to ice water when we ran out of ice to chew from our drinks and watched a gal in an awesome flapper dress smoke a joint as nonchalantly as possible.
It was about this time we decided to memorialize the evening forever in a unique way (some of you will be receiving evidence in the mail soon).
Shortly after than, while gesturing emphatically (which I am sometimes wont to do) I knocked my ice water over.
At about time for last call we decided to take a little stroll and then,
we headed over to the hotel
where we slept together.
But not for very long!

So what you are saying is, you are a cheap yet entertaining date. Cool.

lime said...

goldennib, i think she is also saying that for one drink she'll sleep with you too. bwahaahaha.

oh and btw, you wanna swap secrets? hehehe

Sar said...

Lady Logo, I always knew you're easy to get along with. But I never knew just how easy you are! ;)

snavy said...

Wow - you walked right into that - ya hussy!!

G said...

Just throw the barn doors open and print the secrets!

BTW: You sure you weren't drunkenly imagining a flapper smoking a joint?

Fred said...

I'll be looking in my mailbox every day now so The Missus doesn't get it first. :)

Logophile said...

Goldennib~ It's true, inexpensive and entertaining, doesn't that make me close to perfect?

Lime~ I would never make offers like that to Vanessa, it might frighten her. I don't think she knows me well enough to want to share a hotel room. Secret swap? SURE!

Sar~ Easy and fun, that's me, and I'm flexible too!

Snavy~ Whaaa? Hm? We had a couple drinks then went to sleep, at the same time, at the same hotel, are you suggesting something NAUGHTY???

G~ Well, we didn't commit any major crimes so I figured it was safe to publish. And honey, dresses like that don't even live in my imagination.

Fred~ Good call, oh, and burn it too, would ya?

goldennib said...

Logo: As perfect as a girl can be.

PS. I don't frighten easily.

DaMasta said...

[heh.. just got caught up.. you guys are too much fun. and i guarantee you wouldn't have had any trouble ordering drinks if *i* was there.. ;)]


Candace said...

Did you mail your underwear to people? LOL!

You KNOW all the guys perked up when they read that next to last sentence. ;-)

Logophile said...

Goldennib~ Aw, you say the sweetest things!

Damasta~ We did have fun, but now I am in Susie withdrawal...I've got the DTs and everything!!

Candace~ Ooooh, good idea!! A missed opportunity there, oh well. You mean, you think they might have misunderstood? Oh dear, how silly of me.

Breazy said...

The Grunt said...

You are so gay!

barefoot_mistress said...

I think the point here is that Logo spilled her drink!

(Written from an anonymous location!)

Doug said...

Sounds like a great time. Wish I'd been there.

Logophile said...

Breazy~ We are up to a quarter now!

Grunt~ Happy and joyful too

Susie~ NO! That WASN'T the point!!
Sheesh, focus here, the point is, I have secrets to sell an I want at least 50 cents for them!!

Doug~ Well, next time you head to Portland schedule an extra day and come to Seattle, the Idiot and I will show you a good time.
