I went out dancing last night. I only had two drinks. I've become accustomed to the British mixed drinks. If you order a gin and tonic, you receive 25 mL of gin and (usually) a small bottle of tonic water. I can drink up to eight of these over the course of an evening to no ill effect, as long as I have 1-2 liters of water afterwards. Here in the US, you order a gin and tonic and the bartender pours you a glass 3/4 full of gin and squirts some tonic water on top. It's kind of awful, actually. When you have to drive everywhere, getting drunk as quickly as possible is the goal, since you've got to be sober by 2 AM.

HA! It's true. I have a rubber face. I can (and apparently do) make many weird expressions constantly.

Damn! That sucks. Well, I had a number of missed connections this trip. I did manage to meet enn in the JFK airport and we jammed quite a bit into a 45 minute chat. I was pretty busy for most of the trip, actually, though my public entries may not have made it seem so. I have vague plans to return in September, since my parents would like me to visit then. So we will get another chance.

Hee. My dad swears like a sailor when he's pissed off, so don't feel bad. Although I am a little worried now, because although they knew I participated in online forums, I don't think they knew specifically that LiveJournal was one of them. Er. It's weird when you suddenly realize you've put stuff, publicly accessible stuff, on the internet that you haven't told your parents. (Nope, they always sound silly.)

Heh, thanks for being vague (and hence, discree)t. I don't think my dad is internet-savvy enough to figure out the community anyway. He still sends me three or four copies his e-mails almost every time. In caps.

I should probably be more careful since my mom is fairly net-savvy but I like randomly meeting people through LJ and it's tough to do that if you never post publicly.
