Just back from happy hour

We went to Crystal City Sports Pub for happy hour tonight and it was a lot of fun. It started with me and Leanna and Susan and eventually, Carmen, Kelly, Todd, Jesseca, Paraag, Sam, Jason, and Patricia showed up. We started sitting outside and ended up upstairs. Everyone was drinking in great quantity and having a raving good time.

Sometime around 11 PM, we decided to head to the diner next door and we all had some sort of breakfast dish. I had scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, hashbrowns and 2 pancakes and I wolfed most of it down quickly. I also drank a ton and a half of water.

After that, I was ready to go home, but a bunch of people were going over to Jesseca’s for a while and so I went with them. I finally left her place at 1 AM. Kelly gave me a ride to the Pentagon City metro station and I took the trains home from there.

I just got home and it’s almost 2:30 AM–the longest I have stayed out on a Friday–and a very long day for me since I got up at 5:30 this morning. I’m beat now and heading off to bed and planning on sleeping in late tomorrow. But still, it was lots of fun!
