After LOST last night, Kari and I made the trek across Howard Street and down a few blocks to Chase Street, where we met up with Eli, Tykia, and Jared at a bar called Dougherty’s. Well, after passing it and having to turn around once, but that’s beside the point. We hung out there for a while, talking, even played some pool, and then we walked (down the middle of the deserted, snowy streets) to Brewer’s Art to find some food, throwing snowballs and laughing the whole way, the girls talking in British accents sporadically; but when we got to Brewer’s Art, they were closing. We went to see if the Owl Bar was open, but the Belvedere was locked, so we couldn’t get in. Was this normal? It was about 1 or 1:30 a.m. Surely the bar was open, and it was just the hotel itself that was locked, right? Anyway, we decided to call in some pizza at Nino’s, because they’re apparently open until 2 a.m. on Christmas, and then we took it to Jared’s apartment and ate while watching Quest for Camelot and making fun of it. Such a fun movie to watch when you’ve been drinking! Well, I imagine, as I never (feel the need to) drink enough for it to affect me very much. But everyone else was pretty toasted. Afterwards, Kari, Eli, Tykia, and I went to Tykia’s place to visit Bruce, the cat. Then we walked to Howard Street, where we parted ways at about 3 a.m. And now it’s morning, and the blizzard is back in full force, with high winds and snow drifts. It’s supposed to keep going until late tonight or sometime tomorrow. We’re probably going to end up with anywhere from 38 to 50 inches by the time it’s over. Really high winds expected tomorrow. They’re calling for snow again on Monday. What happened with that groundhog?
