Friends, I gotta start this by saying I just went to a bar alone for the first time ever and liked it a little too much. I've always been afraid to go to a bar without company, thinking I would feel very sad and/or get hit on by crazy old men. Well, I just started a Storytelling class at UCB and our first assignment was to do something outside of our comfort zone so, boom, why not try it? The verdict: a little sad/scary at first, but once you get some gin in you it's kind of amazing. I sat there for a good hour, people-watching and writing random things in my notebook that felt genius but will probably seem lame tomorrow. I cheated a little by going to my favorite bar, but still, baby steps.
I do, however, need to cut back on the drinking and the post-drinking tortilla-chip-eating that comes with it. My thighs are starting to scare me. Here's an ode to health (and T-ball):

andrea: so, my new favorite healthy snack in THE WORLD is radishes on toast
seriously, i could eat this til i'm dead
molly: i'll have to try that
andrea: its sooooo good, on buttered toast with salt & pepper & a little hot flakes!
ooh and lettuce sometimes
molly: sounds like slug food
andrea: no, awesometown food
molly: awesometown slugs
that's like the name of a t-ball team
andrea: hell yes it is
and they always win the championship and get to go to pizza hut
i sense a movie deal
