Two margaritas later, I found myself staring at the event posters near the bathroom and feeling the signs of Impending Crippling Sadness hitting me as I thought about all of the things coming up that I would be missing. I also wanted to steal the two framed pastel drawings of Pepe le Moko, apparently a black poodle, that were in the women's bathroom, but I restrained myself. We were also shocked to run into Ivana formerly of Webgrrls, and we had a bit of a chat about my upcoming plans.
The robbery of the evening occurred at Half Price Books, which took about 40 books of mine and gave me $8 in return. Thanks, guys, at least you saved me the trip to Goodwill, but don't you think you could have done a little better? Meanwhile, we spent about $80, even at 20% off, and came out with CDs, two DVDs (Guys and Dolls and A Touch of Zen), and a fairly respectable pile of books (including a nice Weekend Walks in Britain and a fun pile of Taschen picture books).
Now we're home and I feel dehydrated. Watch me fall asleep earlier than I have all week long.
