Happy St. Patrick's Day
Sunday. 3.17.13 9:52 am
I missed yesterday. . . damn. But! I had a reason. Here's how my day went:

I left my house around 8:30am yesterday morning and didn't back until 2:30 this morning. It was a fun day, for the most part. Toward the end of the night I was tired and cranky and the alcohol in my system was amplifying the emotion.

The day started out like any other normal Saturday. I completed my laundry around 11 and was about to head back upstairs to rest for a few hours before Roller Derby, but Jacob realized that it was getting close to when the parade was about to start and he wanted to go. I kind of wished I had stayed home and just enjoyed my quiet abode, but I decided to join him. I showered, got my laundry put away and we headed Downtown.

The parade was okay. I'm not sure how much of the beginning we missed; we got there about 30 minutes after the parade started, but we were at the point where it ends so we might not have missed much. It was okay. Nothing special. I can't watch firefighters in uniform walk past me without me tearing up. I blinked them back quickly enough that no one saw, but I need to work on getting past that. I guess it was cold and windy enough that I could have just blamed the tears on that if anyone had seen, but still. I should be able to keep the emotions in check.

After the parade, we still had about an hour and half before we were supposed to meet up with a friend so we stopped at this place called Lil Woody's. It's a small burger joint and it's delicious. It's fresh like In'N'Out, but there's more options. I'll have to go back at some point.

After that we killed a little more time in a convenience store looking for an energy drink for Jacob and I got a snack in the form of peanut butter M&M's. We still had half an hour, but we told our friend we were coming over anyway. We hung out at his place for a little bit before heading back Downtown for the Derby bout.

The bout was good. It was a lot better than last month's with the Canadians. Eesh, that was a sad bout. The score still made it clear that Rat City has a home advantage, but the game was a little more exciting. Port Angeles got in to their groove in the second half and tried to make a come back, but they just didn't have enough time.

After the bout we went to this place called McMenamin's not too far from the arena. It was completely disappointing. I don't think we'll be going back there any time soon. We had good memories from about a year ago when we discovered the place, but it's definitely changed and not for the better.

Since the guys were still in the 'stay out and drink' mode, we headed to a gay bar closer to home. It was around 11 at this point and places were pretty busy. We got drinks and took over a pool table. I feel like I should get used to going out and interacting with strangers, but I just don't have the motivation to do so. It took me a while, a couple drinks and a very nice stranger to get me more comfortable with being in a bar {it didn't matter to me that it was a gay bar; it's still a bar with a large crowd of people in a very small space.} The stranger is a professional pool player, has won money in tournaments and is very good at the game. He was sharing some tips on how to get better shots and it did help. Next time we all agreed that we will be going somewhere less crowded, more quiet and more pool tables. After a few games someone else wanted to play and he was good, but not very polite. I got pissed pretty quick which made me lose my buzz. Also hence why we're going to play pool somewhere else next time. Less chance for some random ass to come take over our table.

As I said, we didn't get home until 2:30 in the morning. I was in bed around 3 and slept until a little after 8. I laid in bed until almost 9 and decided to put some food in my stomach. I need to ingest a lot more water and eat something else a little while from now. We will be going out again tonight, but I think I'm going to stick to beer. I'm not that hung over today, but I don't want to deal with this feeling two days in a row.

Good for you if you managed to get through this whole thing. I know it's a bit much, but I did a lot yesterday. Hopefully tomorrow's entry won't be so long. I guess it all depends on how tonight goes.

Until then. . .

Wow, super long day.

It is pretty hard to interact with strangers if you're not used to it. I'm okay with it now, but I really had to force myself to figure out how to do it to get good results over the course of about three years. I don't think I would have done it if I weren't so desperate to make friends.
