Over the river into the woods

Hmm. It was an interesting day. I went over to Dolores' house and met some people. One of them was this woman who manages or is involved in the managing of the band The Cranberries and Eagle Eye Cherry. British lady who lives in Westchester now. Also there was the mother of one of the hostesses who is a professor at the University of Virginia. We all piled into the manager's car and headed off to brooklyn. There was some arguing about how to get there and we missed a turnoff but it was alright.

Anyway I'm not going to give a full description of the day because that would be cruel, but I will list important characteristics. The food was excellent, definitly the Thanksgiving dinner I was hoping for. Mashed Potatoes, Mashed sweet potatoes, whipped squash, salad, 2 types of green beans, stuffing cooked IN the turkey, gravy etc.

It was EXCELLENT.

The company was alright, although VERY estrogeny. At first when people were getting settled I wasn't talking to anyone, but after everyone was introduced and such I found a steady stream of conversation. Actually I got along pretty well with the British music manager except that there was some guy there flirting with her heavily so I sort of backed off. Not that there was any sense of competition or anything since she was much older, but they engaged in that one on one flirtatious talk complete with lewd references and half serious face slapping. Kinda interesting to observe.

The rest of the night was spent at the table where I ate WAY too much. We played a party game and Idid alright although I was robbed the last couple of rounds.

Overall I think I'm glad I went. I missed watching DVDs and playing Amped but at least I don't have to worry about what might have been had I not missed thanksgiving again. There were uncomfortable parts like when everyone was giving thanks for what they had in life and I didn't know what to say. I just don't have a lot to be thankful for. Also I got into a few arguments with people where they didn't seem to be taking me seriously. That's okay though, I'm kinda used to it and I was by far the youngest person there.

I don't know how I feel about today yet. It was interesting and sad and lonely and nice all at once. What I do know is that I'm T I R E D Tired and going to go collapse and let the tryptophane run through my system. School will have to wait.
