You know, I moved here 3 years ago, and until last year, my life was kinda uninteresting and dull. But then I made a positive decision to actually go outside and make my own life, and that really sorta changed things for me. Now I have interesting friends who live in interesting places and do interesting things. I really dig that.
More so because of weekends like this. It was a busy weekend. First, I’ve got Mikey’s Texas de Brazil event, which was, frankly, incredible. More meat than I could possibly imagine, for free. And it rocked. I’m now a fan of de Brazil.
Second, there was the Rapscallions trivia team drink-fest Saturday night, which was a hell of a lot of fun. I got to try several new beers on the trivia tab, and enjoyed myself immensely.
Next, there was the crazy brunch this morning at the Majestic. At one point we had completely filled the entire bar, which, at the Majestic, is no mean feat. I counted 16 happy people enjoying a quality menu and drink selection. Our bartender, Tiffany, seemed to be quite happy with it as well, for obvious reasons. It was an interesting time full of interesting people.
Finally, after my semi-required weekend workday, I met up with Chad and Rebecca and had an entertaining few hours eating $0.25 oysters over at the Flying Fish (a new and fun place on 2nd street).
So, at this point, I’m both drunk and full of oysters, and really sort of in a contemplative mood. About a year ago, I would not have said my life was a good one. I had/have friends that I loved but rarely saw, and spent much of the rest of my time working/sleeping.
Today, my life is complex and busy, and I love it.
