The Council Shall be Furnished!

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

And so… after almost the entirety of Summer, my base of operations now has livingroom furniture. Picked up from Out of The Closet for, what I am assured, is practically free(so far as decent furniture goes). My brother/roommate love regaling the story of how the couch and oversized chair came to be in our ownership. As if the stars were aligned that day to give us what was needed for the party that followed.

Oh, yes, also after the entirety of Summer, a party was held. Seems as if multiple things are happening late this Summer. Unfortunately, that does include the heat. Damn. This Summer was going to be the Summer of awesome parties to be held at this three bedroom apartment. Aim for three, my friends, and you’ll have more space to enjoy.

Of course, as the party was short notice, none of my friends were able to make it. Not that I was a wallflower throughout the whole thing. This was my home turf. Plus, there was plenty of delicious food and a near-endless supply of alchohol. And it kept growing as those who arrived brought with them the classic housewarming gifts of alcoholic beverages, including various beers, wine and a bottle of Maker’s 46 that was immediately opened and consumed. Some even managed to make it through the night.

After many hours of imbibing and consuming of tacos, the night was followed up by a visit to Bar Lubitsch where another round of cocktails was bought along with a few burbon shots. We spent the length of a drink there and galavanted our way back to the land of party origin, one or two of us stopping momentarily to buy more alcohol as it was nearing 2am. Did I have another shot? I believe that may have happened.

And the next day, I better understood the meaning of hangover. A hangover further agrivated by the heat of the awful Summer day. Have I mentioned I don’t like hot Summer days? Booo!

Perhaps I was a bit quick to judge. If my review of Sherlock Holms wasn’t enough of a clue, I’m generally not very good at reviewing things. There was a short(read: very short) period of time I was staff on another website. I wrote a great review for MonkeyBone, a horrible movie. And I only realized it was horrible two days after viewing. Shame on me.

I’m not getting at that particular review, however, I’m talking more specifically of Astro Burger. I’m still steering clear of their onion rings, for sure, but they have a vast menu, are within walking distance, and I have the occasional habit of getting drunk. This is something likely to reoccour in the following months when this rather large apartment becomes, as has been stated by several visitors and more than one inhabitant, “Party Central”. Meaning Astro Burger has the high likelyhood of becoming “After-Party Central”.

As I type this there is both a party going on next door in the neighboring apartment building and one across the street… and quite possible a third about to begin somewhere else across the street. I, however, am sitting in the back, in my room, very slowly consuming my chicken quesadilla several hors after a Saturday’s day of work. There are oh so many more things inside this tasty chicken/cheese based consumable than there are in the simple cheese one they offer, which is one I drunkenly consumed following a previous visit.

As for the parties to come… a first is planned sometime during this month. The most actively artistic member of our group of three in this place of residence seems to plan to go particularly crazy with color in the (currently) mostly empty living room, or so he said last night, loudly, on the balcony, before anything is to happen.

Add to that, our apparent lack of furniture and the fact that we have a few boxes still about and it seems there is work to be done. But I have been promised parties and I finally live in an apartment I’m not either sharing with my mother, or at least somewhat ashamed of.
