So I'm up again. Been up since noon, really, but I didn't feel like writing before now.

The crawlers last night were awesome, and I made some welcome acquaintances, hopefully to become friends. The crawl itself was merely all right - mainly, I think, because when I drink, I'm really just a more wobbly and less co-ordinated version of myself when sober. (I also learned yesterday that the same would seem to go for pot - either that or I didn't have too much. First time, and I don't intend to make that a habit. At least the alcohol I tend to drink tastes good. :P) A "downside", perhaps, of being generally relaxed, mellow, and uninhibited save for a shy streak which it would likely take lethal overdoses of alcohol to dispose of. :D

Started out at Hudson's on campus, which I probably liked the best of all the places we went to. I was impressed and surprised both at the turnout and at the number of people who were actually wearing togas. :D Some of the other guys had to be warned by the bouncers not to show any nipple. The blow-up doll supposed to represent the birthday boy was, of course, left out of this demand. Tried a couple of the house cocktails, had some wings, hung out with some guys outside (enter the THC), generally liked the place.

Hard to say much about Squires, to be honest. We didn't spend excessive amounts of time there, and I was a bit out of it-too much to drink at the Hudson's, combined perhaps with the couple of puffs of Mary Jane, so this was mostly a "get my legs back and get back on pace" period. It was after here that I stopped trying to keep wearing the bedsheet-toga - became too much of a hassle to keep on.

It was Ladies' Night at the Union, completel, to everyone's great amusement, with strippers. Really, really crowded as a result even before we got there. Made for plenty of drunk girls to watch dance, at least. *laughs* I'm not the biggest fan of the venue, though, though at least my dislike only extended to the music and the crowd, as opposed to the Sidebar, which added incredibly treacherous floors to the mix. Shockingly enougjh, I didn't fall, and I did dance there. Briefly, since the only song that played that I didn't hate was Madonna's "Like a Prayer". Someone else managed to, though, in quite spectacular fashion. *wince*

It was the last stop, though, so I didn't stay long. Some people went to the Strathcona Hotel instead, and I thought of tagging along. It sounded more my type of bar, but by then it was already 12:30ish, and getting a cab on Whyte anywhere near last call struck me as one of the least fun things I could possibly do, heh. All in all, a good enough time, but I don't know how well I mix with large crowds of strangers or really loud clubs (I make an exception for New City here because they play stuff I like, but it's not like I've been back there in a while either). Probably because I lean more towards conversation than dancing and mayhem, and it remains incredibly hard to converse in places like that.

I'm not sure how many pictures I got into, so I may unfortunately disappoint Angie and April. We'll see what pops up on Facebook, and what I'll have to make up to them instead. :P

I can't guarantee I'm in any of them, and I frankly can't be bothered to check right now. I have enough to do. :D
