4am Seems Like A Good Sign, No?

My hair reeks of smoke. It's making me a little sick, actually. I'm too tired, though, from getting home at 4am to take a shower yet. Yeah, 4am. On a Thursday night. I seriously fought old-age last night and ended up having a really good time.

NotMiranda asked how it went and I answered, "Good! Not 'making out on the bar' good, but good!" The place we went to was playing Fast Paced Bingo so once that started at midnight, I was in uber-competitive mode so any flirting I did was before my quest to win. (Oh, and I did not. Win, that is.) I made A LOT of eyes which was fun and I practiced holding my gaze with hott guys who passed by. I think, though, it was probably appearing as though I was with the guy sitting next to me. Sure, we were sitting kind of close and he was helping me with the game, but he's perhaps spoken for...

Moving on! I know my eyes worked with at least one of my recipients, though, because he gave us a free appetizer and brought over our food order which is unheard of for those guys. Mmmhmmm! (And if it's not obvious, this guy works at the place. My eyes aren't good enough to get fellow customers to serve my food...yet. I'm working on it.)

All in all a very nice night and what I hope is the start to a great weekend!

Great progress!! I am trying to do the holding the gaze/eye-contact thing too. Will let you know how successful that is ;)

Herbal Essences leave-in conditioner works great when you don't feel like showering after late nights. Really covers up the smokey smells in your hair until you can hop in the shoer the next morning.....

Sounds like an awesome night! I'd love to know where to play fast-paced bingo. Could you spill the beans on where you were?

NotMiranda said...

Glad you got some practice in. ; )

NotCarrie said...

Haute Girl- Yeah, it was fun! I kept getting angry with the people who wouldn't shut up:) "B" and "G" sound a lot alike.

DCVita- yay! Yes, let us know.

Judy- Oooh thanks for the tip.

Recovering Overachiever- Check your email:) I talked to someone who admitted to having a "popular blog" so JUST IN CASE, i'm not saying where I was on here;)

I wanna do fast-paced bingo! I would have been the same as you - focused on winning! Girl, you know that men sitting beside you scare off other guys unless they are dirtbags.

Thursday night might be a stretch - or a blast. Seems you had the latter! ;)

I myself strained from going out even Friday night - I had too much to do over the weekend, plus a long week ahead, so I figured I should at least honor my city council buddies and try to look alive...

Next Friday, I'm out, though! ;)

Take care

There is nothing nastier than coming home reeking of smoke.

You can still smoke almost everywhere in this country. It's like the US in the 60's. Ick.

hehe bingo!!! Bingo is the new scrapbooking yeh??
don't you hate it when your hair stinks after being out... especially since I usually get a wash and blowdry done at my hairdresser either friday or sat arvo before heading out.
