Tonight there was a to-do at a bar that I was invited to. Knitting in the Buff took precedence so I gave it a miss. If there was no Buff tonight, there would have been a reasonably good chance that I would have gone to the event (birthday party for a roommate of a friend), but the x-factor was: it was at a bar. It’s no big secret I don’t like bars. I think most of my closest friends feel the same way. Or at least – my true soul mates. There are so many reasons why bars irk me. I could start an itemized list comparing and contrasting, but it would be protracted and cumbersome. I would never organize an event at a bar if I could help it, but I guess I can understand why some people would – you don’t have to clean up after yourself. But with the smell and the noise and having to share space with mutants and the lack of environmental control and the general non-homey feeling, the cons heavily outweigh any pros. Plus bars are invariably downtown — which I am not a fan of, especially at night. I said I wasn’t going to compose a list so I better quit while I’m ahead. Restaurants are better, but I still prefer invading a person’s home over setting foot in a public venue. Plus a home doesn’t have to close at 2am or whatever, and sleepovers are easy!
Knitting in the Buff tonight was comprised of:
Reboot ep 3 “The Quick and the Fed” Dot gets brain-wiped by a magnet
Buffy ep 9 “Nightmares”. Some kid makes everyone’s nightmares become reality.
Look Around You “Water” and “Sulphur” for Janet’s benefit!
Spaced “episode 3” They go to a performance art show. This ep was a bit of a stinker, actually.
Black Books “The Blackout” episode 4. Bernard gets “blanked” and Manny drinks too much coffee.
