Sitting at another coffee/bubble tea (a.k.a. boba)/food place in Westwood called ISO. It’s cute and quiet with plenty of college students studying away. I had a fun and somewhat productive week. Every Thursday there’s this thing called The Bar Review, which is basically and excuse for everyone to get drunk. This week it was in Santa Monica at a bar called 217 (http://www.lounge217.com/
) it was small, but nice. We got there kind of early so it was much easier to get a drink. I didn’t know what to get so I asked the bartender to make me a girly drink and it was very yummy. Too bad I couldn’t understand a word he said so I don’t know what the hell it’s called. Then Jerry’s law school friends showed up and their mission of the night was to get trashed (one of the guys found out his ex-girlfriend was dating someone else and another guy got dumped). Jerry got drunk drunk drunk because his friend Matt wanted to see his “inner beast.” We danced until I couldn’t stand the pain of my black Guess pumps anymore…they pinch my feet, but I LOVE them!
We went to Eric’s birthday party, Jerry and him grew up together in Dallas and apparently had many sleepovers together…that’s all the dirt I could get :(. We went to this Italian restaurant called C & O Trattoria in Marian Del Ray. They had refillable bread rolls that were delicious! We had calamari, stuffed mushrooms, pasta, and chocolate cake! So yummy! Also, they make you sing-along to “That's Amore", which was fun. Then after dinner we went to this place called, Crazy Hook in K-Town that was decorated with pirate stuff…it was interesting. Then it was my turn to get drunk drunk drunk. Usually you get the birthday boy drunk, but the girls in the group decided to order a large bottle of peach flavored soju. I took 3 straight shots and it made me tipsy. It was a fun night and I meet a lot of new people.
Watched UW vs. USC game, which I believe we should have won. USC sucks! It was a very intense game. I don’t know how guys watch sports so much. I get really emotional when I root for a team…it’s stressful. Later that night I ended up playing Risk w/ Jerry and I got my butt kicked. I have to admit that game was actually kind of fun…does that make me a nerd?
My parents are coming to visit me this weekend. I’m really nervous…
