This weekend, my friends Lynne and Scott came up to visit me in my new place here in Austin. They’re very interesting people, and are considering starting a side business of renting themselves out to lame parties to provide some life. That is, if the cat-opera doesn’t work out.
Anyway, they came in Friday night, and we proceeded to stock up on beer and other alcohol. Then we came back to my place, watched our reunited kittens chase each other (our kittens are sisters), and got more than a little drunk. Scott konked out early (around 1), but Lynne and I called another of her friends here and got picked up to go to a small party full of people that I almost knew from college.
I sobered up a bit, and she got a bit drunker (I didn’t dare drink whatever it was she was mixing), then we got a ride back to my place in someone’s new convertible. Which is really cool going 85 in the middle of the night when you’re buzzed.
We got back to my place and talked for a while about relationships and stuff (the best thing about Lynne is that I can talk to her about absolutely anything). Then I ended up giving her a backrub, using the massage oil I had bought just in case I got any female visitors.
Saturday we went out to lunch, then hung around just talking for most of the day. Then we saw Chicken Run (which absolutely rocked), and went out to dinner. Talked some more, got drunk again then walked to blockbuster to get some anime. Scott konked out in the middle of the movie, but Lynne and I finished it (and two bottles of wine). Then she returned the backrub, and we talked about girls again.
Now it’s Sunday morning, and they’ve just left to go back to Houston.
This was absolutely the best weekend I’ve had in recent memory.
My friend Cath is going to start moving in next week, so here’s hoping that the massage oil sees some more use.
