So last night was fun.
I went and met Lisa and her friends at the Pru, and then we walked to Fire + Ice. I wish I'd thought to call ahead for reservations so we had to wait an hour and a half for a table, but one person had an iPad so we played Scrabble on it and talked. I also got a (alcoholic) strawberry daiquiri because I'd never had one before. It was pretty good.
Once we got upstairs we did the usual spiel with putting our food together and watching them grill it, but unfortunately there was a small sauce mixup and my alfredo sauce wound up on one of the other people's food when it wasn't supposed to. But they were very nice and remade it for him and brought it to the table. Lots of nerdy conversations were had.
And in the end, we didn't actually wind up singing karaoke. We were at MIT's Anime Club, and the last person who used their TV didn't do it right so we couldn't get it hooked up right. So instead we played Dominion
. I'm infamously impatient when it comes to card games, hence whey I never got into Magic cards, but I eventually got it. I did, however, lose. Twice. Also, MIT's Anime Club room is amazing, they have DVDs that haven't been in print for years and allegedly the largest private anime library in the country. I believe it. We also talked about DnD and everyone instantly understood what I meant when I said that the group I used to play with more or less imploded after two of the members started dating each other. It doesn't matter who's involved, that's the kiss of death for most DnD groups.
The one bad part was that when I finally left I was too late to catch the last inbound train, so I caught a cab. It wasn't too bad, but I'm usually not out late enough to have to worry about that. I got home safe and sound.
