That night we went to Jillians, which is a big huge bar with pool tables and . . . um, other things I guess. But we just hung out by the pool tables. In attendance were -- you ready for this? -- quent, famousmark, ironmaus, counterfeitfake, strangea, hybrid1013, banomi, and Doug. And Matt and Melissa, but I didn't talk to them much because I didn't really know them.
We played pool, some of us poorly. Like me, I played poorly. One of my games was decided by an accidental sinking of the eightball, or maybe it was a scratch on an eightball shot; I can't remember, nor can I remember if that caused me and my partner to win the game, or lose it. I think win. Nor can I remember who my partner was that game; first game was Abbie and she pretty much carried the team the whole time. Pee ess I was drinking.
Everybody was so unbelieveably nice and we all got along famously. And you know, that's something, isn't it? All these people I've never really met, don't really know all that well, and we all got along famously. It was a lovely night, and almost everyone got trashed on my behalf. [Mark and Quentin did their best to make up for those who didn't drink.] I was touched. Oh and one time I went up to the bar to get drinks, but I had four, which were too many for my girly hands? And a cute girl sitting at the bar first tried to offer help with my arrangements, and then when it was clear that it would not be physically possible for me to transport all of the drinks at once, she grabbed a couple for me and walked them over! Isn't that sweet? People in the northwest are so nice!!!!1
Doug drove because he's really awesome. He has an Explorer and man, I don't think I've ever been in one before, not in the back anyway -- THEY'RE FUCKING HUGE. Jesus. No one needs a truck BIGGER than this truck. I'm so happy Ford stopped making the Excursion. Anyone who bought an Excursion should be shot in the eye. So anyway he has this truck full of drunken lunatics, and he got pulled over! Oh man! We all got very quiet, and the cop made him step outside and take a sobriety test, but Doug was fine, and the cop let us be on our way. No ticket. Rock. Everyone was dropped off safe and sound, and I passed the fuck out. I drank water and took ibuprofen, though, so the next morning was o-kay!
