Much soberer today

OK, ignore the girl who was blogging drunk at 12:30 on a Tuesday...she is not to be trusted;-) I did get some nice comments from people that I previously was unaware of, though, which is always nice. I love knowing who is reading:-). So please, keep in touch!

This is my 700th post, and I wish that I had something really exciting or interesting for you, but I really don't. That seems like an awful lot of writing, though...the archives are growing to be somewhat unmanageable...

Anyway, I got to work yesterday morning and was asked if I wanted to go to this annual meeting. There is a pretty well-known public company that is a purveyor of alcoholic beverages and is famously located in Boston...someone here has been advising them in a minor capacity for a while and felt like it was appropriate to go to the meeting even though he couldn't make it. So, he sent me:-).

Most annual meetings are incredibly boring, tedious and are intentionally held at awkward times and places to keep people from showing up...but this one is actually pretty fun. They do the formal stuff, then the founder takes some questions and talks about the industry, and then they start serving:-). They have the regular products, and some experimental things or rare things that they don't sell often. There is also food made from recipes that include the booze.

The problem with this is that it started at 9:00 AM and was over by noon...since alcohol is like three times more effective before lunch, my roughly three beers left me pretty well hammered by the time it was over...lol. Good thing I took a car instead of driving! I'd have been stuck in Jamaica Plain waiting to sober up all afternoon:-)

The afternoon was pretty obviously not very productive, and I convinced Big Sis to leave a little early to go and sit outside somewhere for dinner (we ended up meeting some people in the South End, in Jenny's favorite neck of the woods:-)). Before we did that, however, we had a little conference call with Munchkin to get her reaction to her first day of work...so far so good, she enjoyed it.

She also already has two work BFF's, both of whom just completed their sophomore year of college...yea, we will have to see about that... Let's just say that I am not quite ready for 20 year old girls to be picking her up and dragging her all over the Island all night long;-). But I don't have to deal with that just yet...

I guess that is about all. Sorry for the veiled threats at not blogging yesterday...I can't really see completely stopping, even if my productivity slows down. I like it too much:-)

I'm only commenting because you mentioned comments in your post and i read everyday - silently, watching, judging. I am not to be trusted...

Aw that's so great that Munchkin has made friends already. How do kids do that? I swear it's impossible to make new friends when you're an adult! ;)
