Sober & Disorderly

Proof that you can still get into trouble even when you are sober:



Above is my friend Princess Leanne and I. We usually get in trouble when we go out together and last night was no exception.

I guess it started with the taxi ride to the club. I've never screamed in a taxi cab before but I guess there is a first time for everything. The cab driver laughed as we thought up our epitaphs: She died how she lived...in a taxi cab.

We went to a bar first called the Railway Club. I've been there before to see an Ex play in his band but wasn't too impressed. Tonight there were a few more bands playing, no one I had heard of (which doesn't say much) so I was reluctant to fork over the 10$ cover. Luckily Princess Leanne's cousin took care of my tab for the whole night which wasn't a problem.

Inside we met up with a few friends of mine, ate some crap, decided it sucked and made our way to the Kingston Pub. I had a good time there before so I figured it would be a good place to go.

It was a good place to go, if only we weren't served by the biggest beyatch of a waitress. Because the 8 of us were seated in 2 back to back booths, there was a lot of back and forth between us. Then someone said something funny and laughter insued.

Moments later the waitress came by and told us to keep it down. The manager was apparently mad and we were getting her in trouble. This was a nice establishment (so no having fun!) and we had to be considerate of the other patrons...older folks and such. We looked around. It was 12:30 AM on a Friday night, in a loud pub. Were we just told to shut up?

The funniest thing was, everytime someone switched a table or laughed or whatever, she would shoot us a dirty look. I noticed most of the dirty looks were directed at me. Me as I'm sipping on two Diet Cokes, the only sober person of the night.

The lesson here? It doesn't matter if you are drunk or not. You can still be tossed out of a pub. Needless to say, I hope she enjoyed her tip.

*Sigh* Trouble just follows me wherever I go.

Thanks for your suggestions guys. Even though I am a bit of a loner and do like to spend nights with me myself and I, there is something to be said about staying home on a Friday night. When you gotta go out, you gotta go out. As for Saturday, thanks to the wonderful support from my dear friends, every Saturday from now on will be Girls Night. The best way to maximize being young, a woman and living in the most beautiful city in the world.

Where was Ross, how could he let you go out alone, youll get snatched up by a sexy latin tourist. I miss getting drunk with you, I want to come to van but my ticket expires in November and I dont think Ill be able to come up with the money. I miss you soooooo much.

Ross was busy with Jeff's mum. He knows I can fend off those Latin tourists with my wit...and a butterknife.

Why not borrow money from daddy or alex or even moi? A waste of a ticket otherwise...

I can't believe you still gave her a tip! I am a firm believer that serving is more than just taking an order and giving you food...the attitude must be good too. And a pub is a place to be a bit rowdy and have some fun so the manager should get the stick out of his ass.

Sounds like you had a great time besides all that though.

Vegas - actually since i didnt pay for my cokes and food, i didnt tip, per say. But whoever did tip, i can assure you it was lousy.

But yes, fun night after all. Beats staying at home and doing nothing (I do enough of that already).

And now I'm off to a club in Vancouver cuz someone phoned and invited me. I'm not sure who phoned, cuz it was too loud to hear there name, so it will be a bit of mystery when I get there. Luckily I went shopping today so I get to try out my hot dress.

Vancouver may not be up to Vegas standards, but I figure if I can atleast look the part and have a good time, I'm half way there.

Hey wanderlusting, nice blog. I'm putting you on my list.

I'm a bit of a loner too. I really want to start going out more and being social again though. One can spend too much time alone.

*le sigh* once again your glamour-filled life has made me feel pathetic. I did go out with Nicole last night though, and we discusses how we wanted to go to Van and have a drunken day with Jeff. Then we ate a gigantic amount of sushi and drank a bottle of wine.
