HAMILTON

Before the show, we had dinner at Commonwealth, and I had boar chops. I love trying new, weird foods. It feels exotic.

It was very tasty. Highly recommend.

Then the show!

It was an amazing performance. The only downside was the extreme pain I was in. I very briefly thought about leaving at intermission. That’s how bad it was.

On the way out, we met up with Karen and Freya.

That’s our first pic with just the three of us, and I kind of love it.

Treat ♥️

I love The Fountain On Locust, but I only get there every few years or so. I met D there this afternoon for an early happy hour, because it’s right next to his gym. The Fountain is famous for its ice cream martinis, so I had to indulge in my favorite: the chocolate covered banana. 🥰

You know that saying: nothing tastes as good as skinny feels? It’s a god damn dirty lie.

NYE RECAP

We went up a party our friends were hosting at their neighborhood bar. It was surprisingly swanky. I was quite impressed. There was a mix of LS and non-LS people, and it was very well attended. (I didn’t realize tickets were available on Eventbrite). We hung with lots of old friends, and made some new ones. We got home very late (4:30 ish after trying and failing to find an all night diner) and so we are both exhausted today. That’s why we’re in bed before 10:30 pm on a Saturday night.

Oh and my dress was a fucking dream. I’m in love with it.

It’s covered in little gold stars and moons. I need an excuse to wear it again soon. I actually felt really pretty, and the party ended up being an unexpected confidence boost. I’ve still got it, baby. ♥️
