Saturday was a busy day, full of web development and photography. First was Giovanni Torres’ workshops at Marquis Dance Academy. He’s a Toronto salsa instructor who taught shines and Salsa on 2. If you know what that means. Anyhow, not being registered for the workshop, I still came to snap photos for the still-pending photo gallery on the salsa website. Used up almost all the room on my 64MB card but I think I got some interesting pictures. Had enough time to go home, download the images, clear my memory card, and head to the Empire to watch Giovanni’s demo show at 11pm. Had a good time dancing, then came home 1am-ish, expecting to cuddle up to sleep next to Kurt.
Kurt, who had a poker night with some friends that night, was still up and with his friend Eric. Noticed the 14 empty beer bottles. Noticed the 2 used shot glasses with squeezed-up lime slices in ’em. Noticed the blaring music and the gambling atmosphere still in the dining room. So I joined in!
Lucky for me that I have a high metabolic rate. The three tequilas they fed me on an empty stomach were not enough to keep me impaired for the whole night. Which is good, because I with my terrible poker skills decided to join the game. By the time the alcohol cleared my system, it was 4am and I had cleaned them up with over $25 in my stash. I had also cooked up some Kraft Dinner and shared it with the boys. According to them, Asian women (and women who can cook in general) do not know how to whip up the perfect, creamy, cheesy KD.
Eric left our place at 5:30am, after convincing him that taking a cab home is far safer than driving his (purple!) truck after 10 beers and 4 tequila shots. All in all, a pleasant evening…
Gotta go to bed; so long for now.
