Party like it’s 1999?

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 9:22 am

Nick would have been 29. I would have been 24. Perhaps we would have been able to handle our booze a bit better.

I was up at 6:30 am Saturday. Nick at least got to sleep in a bit. Elle had an 8 am soccer game. By 9:25 the game was over and Elle and Zed were dropped at their dad’s. I picked up Nick and we enjoyed a not-so-quiet breakfast at IHOP. We toodled around here and there. Walked around the Galleria for a bit. Bought Nick a new pair of tennis shoes.

By around 4:30 pm we were hungry. “Let’s give that new burger joint a try.” Nick suggested. OK.

We arrived at 4:45 pm. The burgers were good. The fried jalepeno slices were good. The beer was cold. We watched the first NCAA Final Four game. Poor George Mason. We were rootin’ for ya. Then we decided to stick around and watch the second game. Bah. UCLA won.

And we kept at it. We called it quits after seven hours.

10:30 am came waaay too early. Especially with the time change. Our noon lunch date with one of Nick’s writing group pals and his wife was our ‘hair of the dog’ recovery. Two cosmos and a po’boy later and I felt much better.

Man, we just can’t party like we used to…


  1. Welcome to my world. If you look in the dictionary next to boring, you’ll see my name. B-O-R-I-N-G. LOL

  2. Ain’t it a shame?? Hangovers get worse and worse as we get older it seems. But, I’m not giving up!

  3. Ugh, I feel your pain. I’m almost thirty and I can’t quite remember how I did it when I was in my early 20’s. 😦

  5. I’m only 28 and already I know I can’t do the late nights/coherant days anymore.

  6. …and then my sponsor took my coin back. Dangit!

    Imagine all the fun/trouble we could have had if we met in our twenties.

  7. I haven’t been able to do the late-night-out thing for a couple of years now and I’m barely into my 30s. But I could sure go for a po-boy right now, thanks to that post.

    Michele says hi!

  8. Looking back, it’s amazing what I could do on a few hours sleep after a rip roarin’ time. Now, just one of those things is enough to set me back!–>
