Lady Blue Redux

Lady Blue Redux

My Birthday! Thirty-six years ago I was born somewhere in California. Yeah, it's the truth, I'm a California boy. But that's not a bad thing, really. I was raised in the wilds of Northern Idaho in a trailer, so I'm not one to put on airs...at least not too much.

I've been a bad boy, these past two days going out and getting drunk at night. Wednesday, my friend Trent invited me to join him at R Place, which was rather pleasant, really. I stuck to beer the whole night and we had a very interesting evening.

Ran into my friend Tony, who I know from Idaho and introduced him to Trent. Tony's been very much involved with Arena, the PNW independent fashion show. He also has his own photography studio. I have to say, I am very proud of him since I met him right as he was graduating from college and he has done very well for himself. Later at the bar, after Tony left, there was a little skirmish between two people that Trent and I witnessed, which only goes to remind me why I don't cruise the bars like I did in my twenties; you are very likely to encounter very small minded people. I won't bore you with the details.

Tonight, well, earlier this evening, I went over to the Jade Pagoda, where Laurie, Brett, et al. were convening for Thursday's ritual sousing. Had one martini and enjoyed the whole evening, picking out tunes with Brett, catching up with Laurie, her brother Tom and friends. Trent and his roommate Lewis came later, but the party wound down soon after and we all went home relatively sober. Even so, a good time was had by all.

Jason has been calling my answering machine wanting to know if I would attend his initial screening of the new Star Wars movie. I said yes, mostly because I am interested in finding out if Lucas can pull off the romance between Anakin and the princess and make his inevitable turn to the "dark side of the force" reasonable. I have my doubts.
