Just What the Doctor Ordered
This has got to be the suckiest February in memory. Not only is it a cold, dirty, monotonous (and typical) Chicago February, but I continue to hate my job. Drastic measures needed to be taken. Enter Bubs with Tiki Terrace salvation.
Last night, I got together with blogger Bubs, his wife Mizbubs and bloggers Lulu and Tenacious S. It was quite the delightful evening.
I'm not usually enamored of mixed drinks, but hot damn, the libations I was drinking were great. I had a twenty mile drive home, so I had to limit myself to two of them-- it took great willpower.
I don't know if I've ever sat down with four more interesting and nice people. We played "Six Degrees of the Tiki Lounge" as we discovered that all of us had some kind of strange little connection with one another.
A few weeks ago, Barbara was rightfully criticizing a scholar's report that "most bloggers are lonely, isolated, and socially withdrawn." Last night was living proof that this scholar was dead wrong; the conversation was lively, the people were anything but "socially withdrawn"-- and the cocktails delicious. Thanks for organizing a great evening, Bubs. Next one's on our turf.
