Drinking in Brooklyn

So this past Saturday, right, I got my hair did, and then I drove/trained up to Brooklyn to hang out.  nineof26 was in town.  By the time I got to mordicai and pravda's place they were already mostly through a bottle of vodka and a bottle of whiskey.  (Oh also M's cute Barbadosian coworker Christopher was there).  M made me a gremlin, which is two parts whiskey and one part lime something.  Not lime juice, but some sort of lime mix.  I don't know.  It sounds scary, but it was actually pretty good, and made the ineibriation come with the quickness.  Also don't dis gremlins or Jenny will give you what-for.

So they coerced the illscientist into coming over, he bailed on some sort of totally awesome barbecue, where he was going to have sex with thousands of women, just to hang out with us.  We played Trivial Pursuit on the original board and I got a chip question right, the answer to which was "Linda Ronstadt", which was sort of mind-blowing, I mean what the hell do I know about Linda Rondstadt?  NOTHING I SWEAR.  I blame my parents.

After the game was tied at two pieces we realized we were all frustrated so we stopped playing and went downstairs and smoked some cloves instead.  And then we went to the Beer Store and bought beer.  And then we drank it all.  And then everyone went home and I slept on the futon and in the morning Jenny came out to hug me goodbye and I went home and watched football and had a hangover headache all day behind my eye, but as long as it's only the headache part, I don't mind so much.

I like my Brooklyn friends.  Thanks be to LiveJournal.  (I could get sappier but I don't want to embarrass anyone.)  Also it occured to Dave (Ill) and I that we've been friends for ten years.

Man, TWO times on Saturday (first Kelly and then Jenny) somebody asked someone else incredulously "don't you read her LiveJournal??" which for some reason I found totally awesome.  I am all abouts keeping the public informed, I'm glad the ladies are paying attention to the extremely important goings-on in my life i.e. I totally need to watch football on Sundays.

There are a bunch of drunken pictures at this link and here are a couple for your amusement.

mordicai, pravda



There are nine more, and some are pretty ridiculous, you should check them out.

Oh and also, this picture is from way back in May when ranai came to visit, but I don't think I remembered to point it out:

Dude, if you are feeling like coming up north again, I am having a monday night footabll shindig this week!

Hmm. Your offer intrigues me. Driving 1.75 hours home at midnight would be the only thing to keep me from this, but I am definitely thinking about it. I will let you know!

If you can't make it this time, I plan on doing it again. I boviously can't do sunday games anymore, or pretty much weekend anything, and I like parties. So I decided a few little parties (right now only 17 people are coming)can make up for no big party.

Karen might come up!

A)good pictures
2)isn't it an amazing feeling to realize you've been friends with someone for ten years? that happened to me twice this year and it'll happen again next year and I love that! I feel completely accomplished and interesting -- cause, you know, you have to be interesting for someone to want to be friends with you for more than a few years.
C)you are awesome. the end.

1) thanks!
b) it is! I'm sort of a asshole, though, AND I'm bad at keeping in touch, so I don't really have any friends from way-way back. Dave's my oldest friend.
3) man, not as awesome as you! have fun at your temp job today. i hope your cough clears up.

did you get my email? i sent it to geniusscientist @ yahoo a month ago. clearly (i hope) if you had received it you wouldn't have come and visited NYC w/o letting me know!!! get in touch at benjaminpopp@yahoo.com!!

Oh man Ben you are totally stalking my journal! I did get your email, as you can see I am as reliable at correspondence here in the interweb age as I was back in the days before computers were invented. I will try to craft a response today.

To be honest I totally forgot that you were in New York too! I am not used to thinking about things in that way, it's going to require a major PARADIGM SHIFT in my pot-encrusted brain, I will try better next time. If it makes you feel any better we didn't call Jason Zvi Gers either.

Yell at Dave too! Man.
Sep. 30th, 2004 08:35 am (UTC)
stalking indeed!
really i just wanted to make sure you got my email. i promise to yell at dave when i get the chance. i helped jason gers move on sunday! to be fair, we were carrying things around all day and didn't invite you to join us either.

Good, I was watching football.
Sep. 30th, 2004 08:00 am (UTC)
That was fun! I haven't had a chill night with you in a long time.

Sep. 30th, 2004 09:04 am (UTC)
You're right! We should do that more often. And invite Ben, apparently, else he gets pissy. Haha, I kid, I kid.

That icon frightens me, as I am sure it means to.
Sep. 30th, 2004 10:06 am (UTC)
i thought your hair looked nice, that must be why.
Sep. 30th, 2004 12:04 pm (UTC)
Haha, man, thanks! I think it looks limp and lame in these pictures, which makes me eager to post my more immediate "after" pictures, in which I look simply fabulous.

I also have a couple of pics that didn't make the cut, including one of you giving me a headlock, I will try to remember to send those to you when I get a chance.
