Put the needle on the record put the needle on the record

No more Miss Grumpypants: for all my bitching about disco bowling, I had a blast last night. I didn't even realize I needed to have that kind of fun, but I did. The music was mostly cheesy pop, from the good ("The Distance" by Cake) to the guilty pleasure ("Push It"!!) to the sick and wrong ("My Humps") to the earworm-inducing ("Barbie Girl", which somebody requested as a gag for the birthday girl, who's anything but girly). I didn't bowl, but I did get to shake it a little. Best of all, no karate videos, anywhere in sight! Casey and Jennifer and Liz and a bunch of other people I just love were there. I found out that Sophia got a job as a biology professor in North Carolina, so she'll be living not too far away from us in Durham. Liz has a new French housemate who is teaching her to make crêpes, and I'm going over there this morning with Opus, after I drop the Mr. off at the train station, for brunch and doggie playdate.

After that it was nice to see Jimmy and Ming. They've rented a huge place in Mount Pleasant. What with the house the Mr. and I are renting, and Jimmy and Ming living in two bedrooms, a living room and a dining room, you would almost think we were all getting to be adults. He gave her a ring, but she hasn't been wearing it! He didn't want to buy a blood diamond, so he got her one that was made in a lab, with electricity from wind. Awww! It looked gorgeous. We all told her she had to wear the ring.

Off to the train station with the Mr. then. This long-distance marriage is getting a bit old. I want to try and hold out until the summer, because we're saving so much money as long as I'm still working at this job. But it will be nice when it's over. [Edited: when the wait is over, I mean, not the marriage!]
