Just reminding me that my life doesn't stink
Great evening out at a work function attended by many former co-workers. It was this fairly opulent Russian place in Hell's Kitchen that looked like it could've been an old mansion. More fun than a work-related cocktail and hors d'oeuvres party out to be, although -- sadly -- they were not serving any borscht shots this evening. Followed by drinks, jokes and supplementary snacks and food at an Irish bar on the same block. I drank a shandy with pride, because it was actually on the menu and it reminded me of England, taunts of fellow drinkers notwithstanding.
