Sometimes you just can't lose!

How was your weekend? Mine? Well, at the last minute a friend and I decided to go out on the town. We saw "The Devil Wears Prada" which was a waste of time and money, and then...the gods smiled on us. We won, for the first time ever, the door prize at the bar. First N. won $50 in Bar Bucks, and then!! I Won!!! $50 in Bar Bucks! So we had a whopping total of $100 to spend on the evil alcohol! And spend it we did.
I realized again that I am too old for the bar. I danced next to an ex-student. I was horrified until I realized she has reached legal age, which makes me.....ancient. I saw another former student in the bathroom, with her new girlfriend. I wanted to ask if her parents knew where she was. (I didn't, but I really wanted to!) The bartender told us they stopped serving our favourite beer months ago....no one "these days" is drinking it. Sigh. Still, a good time was had by all, and when we tripped on home in the wee hours of the morning, we had no regrets. No regrets at all until later that morning, when the Terrors discovered Squeeky the Squid, and shattered my head into a thousand tiny pieces.

My daughter and I went to see The Devil Wear's Prada...she is a fan of the books. It was ok, but nothing I would buy.

I'm curious as to where you won bar bucks...I want some, lol. I've only been to two bars since I got here - Taku and Lizards Lounge. There seem to be a number of really greasy bars too...

Yay for you! I ran into one of my students at a gay bar one night.. more than a little uncomfotable until I realized that she was there for the same reason I was! Glad you won the bar bucks - we never have luck like that!

Good for you for winning the bar bucks!

I ran into my cousin on the weekend. I used to babysit her when she was born and she is married now!!

Good times...

I saw a former student of mine at the bar on Saturday night. The group I was with thought she was a hooker.

I could neither deny or confirm.

I was out at a bar with a girlfriend some years back, when I was in my early thirties. Friend and I were having a great time, dancing, chatting, even a little flirting, when I hear from behind me a loud and astonished voice calling out, "MRS. [insert surname here]!!!"

Turned out it was the volunteer in a class I'd supplied in for a couple of weeks the month prior. I was 32, he was 27 or so. MRS. Myname, indeed.
