This is a Friday afternoon addendum to the Thursday Night Friday Funhouse. Just found this photo in my archived e-mails and figured I’d post it here, since it’s a rare shot of both me and Maryellen getting loaded. This was circa 2008 at a “Geeks Who Drink” night hosted by Albuquerque’s Blackbird Buvette (no longer in business). R to L: 1) Some guy with red hair who came with 2) our friend Amy, 3) Maryellen, and 4) me.
My current status as a teetotaler makes photos like this one all the more amusing. I don’t recall how that evening ended. I also don’t recall how that evening began. From the looks of it, Maryellen probably doesn’t, either. But the visual evidence proves that Amy and I have the most discerning palettes of this motley group, as we’re both drinking Negra Modello, while Maryellen went with Corona and Rodney Red Hair opted for Dos Equis.
