A Non-Newtonian Fluid

Last night we went to happy hour at Clyde's in Ashburn. It's a really nice place in a huge converted barn. I learned that Saleena and I have a lot more in common than I realized (both sang in junior high/high school, both really into cooking). As she put it, we're very Yin Yang. She's a complete extrovert, extremely outgoing, confident, etc. And I'm completely introverted, reserved in public (usually), and I am definitely not a confident person in general. heh.

Anyway - it was fun. I need to learn to have a glass of water for every beer I have. But honestly if I'd managed to sleep through the morning I would have been fine. Having a thimble bladder made that difficult.

According to Saleena gin and tonic is the perfect drink. Her theory is that the British loved Gin, and the Indians used tonic water as a cure all. So by putting the two together it's getting drunk and being restorative at the same time. I have no idea how valid that theory is - but she could have easily gone into sales of uh .. anything. You just feel convinced.

Alicia - you have to make a trip up here and we have to get you and Saleena in the same pub at the same time for Karaoke. If I weren't feeling assy we'd be there tonight.
