Tasty and Toasty

The girls from work took me out last night as a farewll. We hit a great South African wine bar called Xai Xai in the city. We had a Pinotage- Southern Right ‘07 - Walker Bay. I've never had a Pinotage before but damn it was it lovely. We also got their melted cheese bowl (Yuuuuuuum)-also lovely. I think this is a place to take the girls next time we're all in the city.

But yes, apparently I liked the wine quite a lot. I didn't think I was drunk. I was quite happy. But this morning Aaron greeted me with a "Hi drunkie." I didn't see him last night since he had a band rehearsal but I called him when I was on my way home and when I got home. He said he could tell by my voice alone that I was a little tipsy. What's funny is that I made an effort to sound stone cold sober. I didn't want him to freak out about me taking the train while happy. Ah well. At least the wine made me really not mind the long ass ride (all the trains were running local) and the usual train crazies.

Oh yes, and this morning to my complete surprise, I woke up without the slightest hint of a hangover. Huzzah!

Sounds like you had lots of fun! There is absolutely noting wrong being a little buzzed on the train.. as long as you are still able to keep an eye out for the crazies.

The wine bar sounds like fun, can't wait to try it out!
