Dinner, dessert, and detox

I cooked spaghetti for dinner with the lovely, talented, and pointy-eyeballed Kelly Friday night; she brought chocolate ice cream and I supplied a bottle of 1996 Gossamer Bay cabernet sauvignon that I’d somehow acquired a while back (and was very good). It was a thoroughly pleasant evening, although I spent most of Saturday recovering from the wine intake—not to mention the two pints of Bass I had earlier at Fenian’s with some other colleagues.

Update: Just to clarify (for any concerned readers): all I was really suffering from on Saturday was a lack of sleep; alcohol seems to interfere with me falling asleep.

T’was a thoroughly pleasant evening, for sure! Thanks for the fabulous dinner! Sorry to hear that Saturday was a little less pleasant——hope it was worth it anyway. Hey, way to go on the Clarion-Ledger article! Wish that were more encouraging news, but that certainly isn’t your fault…

How long did it take you to drink those 2 pints? 7 hours? 8?


45 minutes. Which probably explains the problem!

I guess the good news is that you beat Scott to the joke…

45 minutes? I could have sworn you said pints of Bass, not shots of Bass. My bad


No, they were real pints, and (believe it or not) I have witnesses who are prepared to testify in my defense.


Hey Alfie…ease up…that amount of been and wine is a serious amount for any 102 lb, 15 year old girl!


Huh, see if I invite either of you to stay at my place for the 2005 World Beer Festival.
