Hey Strangers!

First of all...I'd like to extend a warm personal welcome to all of our 28 new members who joined DWS this month. All I can say is....if you joined this group and never get a chance to come to our meetups, I won't be a dick and make you feel bad about drinking alone at home and being a workaholic who rarely has contact with other humans.  I'll just say, welcome to Drinking With Strangers!!!!

The party at Stingaree was insane. Please throw eggs at me if I ever organize a meetup at a huge Downtown  club during Comic Con again. Thanks everyone for showing up. I didnt know there was a private party on the rooftop, and they wouldnt let us up there. Amazingly Randy talked his way in and crashed the party while the rest of us stayed downstairs with a possee of Comic Con refugees dressed in Wonder Women costumes. I have to admit it's a great costume to wear to a party...unless you're a dude. The guys dressed as Wonder Woman made me WONDER..!

  The next day, I ended up waiting in the Emergency Room with a friend who incurred a terrible pole dancing injury. At first she didnt want to tell me why she could hardly walk. I thought it was from being chased around the bar by one the Wonder Women guys at Stingaree. Then she admitted that she was taking a pole dancing class and tore something in her knee while doing a "triple axle" spin wearing plexiglass platform hooker shoes while clinging to a steel pole! I'm thinking..what the hell??? Why not just join the local Fire Department where everyone sits around playing cards and eating chillie and farting till a fire breaks out---then they safely slide down a pole! Just skip the chillie and the farting (definitely dont LIGHT the farts) and just slide down the pole without ripping your knee caps off.  

"That's not SEXY!!""  She said. My friend is over 30. Uh, ok...she's over 40. And I think she's having a cougar-ish midlife crisis. She's getting older and she doesn't know WTF to make of it.

So, I said, hey don't need those retarded pole dancing lessons to be cool. Just be cool!

She attempted to smack me with her hooker shoe, and I reminded her that it's a good thing we were already in the ER.


If you're over 30, then Getting older can totally suck, especially if your parents are trying to throw you out and making you PAY for shit! Imagine that!
