{Who Knew Sirens, Crowds, and Bums Could Be So Refreshing?}

22 Feb

After a loooong week, the last thing we wanted to do was drive 2 hours to Cincinnati, just to turn around a few hours later to drive back home.  But it was Eric’s sister’s 21st birthday, and we most definitely didn’t want to miss those bawdy shenanigans. 

So I whistled for a cab and when it came near, the license plate said “fresh” and had dice in the mirror. If anything I could say that this cab was rare…Umm…no.

Jumped in the cab, here I am for the first time. Look to the right and I see the Hollywood sign. This is all so crazy…oh, umm…no.

Hopped in the  Volvo and, like Edward, made it down in record time.  No, seriously. 

I’m all for a life of simplicity, but it was so refreshing and energizing to be back in the city.  It’s been way too long since we spent any time downtown. I was so excited I even shot off a few shaky (gotta love those potholes) pics before embarking on the evening.

(Eric found a flower salesman in the bathroom…he’s so sweet.  All I got in the ladie’s room was a towel.)

(The birthday girl and her boytoy.)

(The birthday girl with her favorite big brother.)

(Our super-talented football star friend, Dannel.)

(My yummy ice water drink.  Nothing like getting *that* look from the bartender.)

(I think this had something to do with that movie Cool Runnings…)

(He’s a regular Casanova.)

(The birthday girl found her long-lost teddy bear.)

(While visually appealing, and amusing to watch, this communal drink just screamed “friends that drink together get herpes together”.)

(He didn’t drink too much…we were warning him of the dangers of high fructose corn syrup.)

I'd love to hear what you think! Leave a comment below.
