49%

The short story would be: I had a realllllly good birthday.


The longer, but not so long you get bored, story goes something like this:

We shopped. We ate. We walked. We drank. And then it was time to go out for my birthday, and that is when the fun started. With just a vague plan for the evening, we set out looking our hottest back to where we had seen a bunch of bars and pubs earlier in the day. Our original plan had been to do a pub crawl of sorts up the street, drinking and flirting as we went along-our own little path of destruction in honor of my birthday. The plan changed, though, when we ordered our first drinks at the Peculiar Pub and met NotRugby* and NotButtonDown, two gents from the motherland (England.)

Ummmm, I'm a sucker for an accent, as are many other women, and that, mixed with some charm went a looooong way last night. And it's interesting because we started off the evening just talking and being funny with the occasional flirting or eye-batting going on. A few beers and rum and cokes later was a different story. I guess as the birthday girl it was understood I got one of them...at least, that's how I saw it in my head:) NotCharlotte stepped up like a champ and worked it and reversed it with the other. Although by then everything was muddled and it was a blur of flirting, ass-grabbing, and propositions.

Ahhh yes, the propositions! "Sex or nothing" I was told. NotButtonDown was very into the idea of getting me and NotCharlotte back to their hotel room and well, about 49% of me was into the idea, too. Just enough of me was sensible enough to not go to a random hotel room where it was very obvious what was expected. I really wanted to kiss him (at least), though, but I guess it was his m.o. to make me wait for everything. Well, not everything, I guess. He also had another interesting tactic for getting me to go back with him and holy hell it probably increased my wanting to go to 49.999999999999999%.

But I have good friends who don't let their other good, drunk friends go off with random men-no matter how cute they are and how hott their accents are. *sigh* So, while part of me still wishes I was blogging about the hott night spent with NotButtonDown at his hotel room, the majority of me knows I made the correct decision.


(Do guys really get blue balls?? If so...sorry, NotButtonDown. I did offer to take you to the back, so really, it was your loss. Thanks for an awesome birthday and if the card with our url that I so kindly and 'gently' placed into your pants pocket actually made it back with you**, then please let us know. )

Happy Birthday to me!


*Although the jury is still out as to whether he would be NotRugby or Notnotrugby-get it?
**HAHAHA, Although I just realized that if he looked at the card later in the night he would have read, "No Sex & The City," which just seems like cruel and unusual punishment at that point. And after all of that beer, he probably couldn't even focus on the url. Hilarious. I just hope he forgets about it until he gets home and does laundry..."What is this?"...

Happy Birthday!! Sounds like a great time!

NotCharlotte said...

*sigh*

Yeah, that was a fun night.

Considering i was also 49% into the idea, i'm really surprised we didn't go with them.

We did get a lot of ass-grabbing in though.

Carrie M said...

happy belated, hon!

Isabella Snow said...

Happy Birthday!

And um.. what say you this time? Another 3some in the name of financial allowances??

Theo said...

Hmmm. Maybe propositioning random girls is not as likely to get me slapped as I think it is...

Time to warm up the credit cards and go drinkin'!



If only booze didn't make me forget what the hell I was doing in the first place and cause me to go off and find some other random trouble...

NotMiranda said...

So much not said about that night. Let's not forget testosterone men of the Air Force extraordinaire celebrating the retirement of someone named Elf. Those guys were none too hesitant to do a little groping. And the brit boys...ah the brit boys. NotSamantha getting drunk when she never gets drunk. Oh wait, the moment in the evening where I realized that I was going to have to be the sober one for once. Hahahaha. Good times!

Senor Beavis said...

Wow, I didn't know y'all flirted with non-coworkers. Well played, ladies!

Snark aside, happy birthday, NC!

Karinaxoxo said...

Happy Birthday...sounds like u had a great time :-)

NotCarrie said...

Allan- THANKS! It was so much fun.


NotCharlotte- Yeah, I actually was the recipient of a lot of ass grabbing. Damn, that was nice;)

Carrie M- THank you!!!

Isabella Snow- Haha, there were TWO guys and TWO girls:) No sharing.

Theo- Work on the accent first. Just kidding;)

NotMiranda- I know! I struggled at what to include here. There was sooooo much to cover.

Senor Beavis- Oh you! But thanks:)

Karinaxoxo- Thank you:) And yes...I did!

NotCharlotte said...

hahah NotCar, you and me both ;-)

i wonder if they do the same thing as us and are like "ok, let's grab a lot of asses tonight!"

NotCarrie said...

Let's go to England.

Alejandra said...

Happy Birthday!! That is the best story! I love it. I also found myself slipping my cards at random gents this weekend. They probably think I'm offering them tech support or something... (sent from my dell desktop...)

NotCharlotte said...

notcar- um, i'm still not unpacked from this weekend, so let's go!

Cheryl said...

Happy Birthday. Sounds fabulous to me.

Theo said...

Actually, I've been told I have an accent. Nobody can place it.

I think it's because not too many Asians say, "y'all" very often.



So who grabbed who's ass? That's also something that I'd assume would get me slapped.

NotCarrie said...

Alejandra- Ha, he was probably threw it on the ground after we left. Ah well, it was fun;)

NotCharlotte- We might have to wait until I get my passport.


Cheryl- Thank you!

Theo- Ass grabbing is usually acceptable for women...men need to be a wee bit more careful and try to gauge the women and the situation:)

DCVita said...

Happy B-day! Glad you had fun :)

NotCarrie said...

DCVita- Thank you! It was such a great time. Huge thanks to my not girls:)

Hagrin said...

Wow, you were in NYC and I missed an ass grabbing event. I'm going to shut the door and cry in my office now. :)

Harleyblue said...

Happy Birthday. Gotta love the protective friends. they always make the right decision when you're too drunk to do so for yourself.

NotCarrie said...

Hagrin- Next time we'll be sure to let you know where our asses will be:)

Harleyblue- Hahaha, man, 49% of me still wishes I had gone.

Happy birthday NC!

And yes, the testicles change to a shade of blue when teased to the point of explosion.. ;)

NotCarrie said...

Single Guy- Thanks. and hey, I offerred other things! Its noone's fault but his:)

Hehe.

jo said...

happy belated birthday!!! sounds like you had a wild and crazy time. if you did go back with him, this blog could be called 'yes sex & the city" haha!

Crashdummie said...

it sure sounds like a "realllllly good birthday".

Happy b'day to you indeed.

Btw, I'm a sucker for accents too, which explains why I went to London few weeks ago... ;)

Cheers!

Theo said...

NotCarrie - Ah. Thanks for the candor. Though I'm not sure it'll come in handy... I mean what would I use to gauge a woman?

All of what I know about women comes from porn and my mother...

Porn has since been discredited because honestly, who keeps a washing machine in the bedroom and why would you invite a repair man there?

My mother doesn't count because I think she's a lesbian. She "wants a wife to cook and clean for [her] because [she's] too busy flipping houses and building a real estate empire." (Those are words from her own mouth.)

My mom's a weird combination of Donald Trump and Bob Vila. The realization of this suddenly explains a lot about me, especially since it's said that guys go after women that remind them of their mothers...

Now I won't be able to sleep tonight. :(
