|10:41 pm - IT'S ALL THE ESPRESSO MARTINI'S FAULT. ALL OF IT.|
So, Night Market.
Going to the Night Market reminded me of how much fun it is to go there, with all the music and crazy international foods and quirky stalls and whatnot. And sangria. Can't forget the sangria.
And also tonight there were espresso martini's which deserve some sort of warning, and are probably responsible for everything else that happened tonight. Including this post.
Fear the espresso martini. FEAR IT, sweet flipping Jesus!
But hey, I got to buy some leather gloves, which are deeply inappropriate for this weather (and which probably explained why they were so cheap), and a denim corsety top thing. Which is technically a bit too big, but when it cost $8.50, I think I can live with a bit too big. And a cupcake with marshmallow icing, and some dried cherries.
Also, I bought a cactus. I think I am going to name it Hector.
So yeah, I'm also trying to get my body clock back to something resembling sanity before class starts up again. And also before Friday, since we have an orientation thingy on Friday morning. This may mean less ridiculous late night chatting sessions, I am afraid.
And for some things that are not inspired by
that damn espresso martinitonight's adventures:
- So there's going to be a Good Omens miniseries. Apparently. I look forward to hearing more about this, if only for the reactions to the casting, which will be... interesting.
- A collection of fan-made alots. Yes, it's supposed to be spelled that way. And now I want my own alot. :/
Current Mood: indescribable

There are espresso martinis?! Where? I found the sangria and the various wine stalls, but not the espresso martinis.
One of the coffee places also did them. They're a bit scary. :/
Espresso martinis? Is this real life, or did the world just die and go to heaven?
Sounds like you had fun. Cacti are awesome! Hector is an *excellent* cactus name :).
Trust me, of all the things it was, heaven wasn't one of them.
I had a cactus when I was a little kid. I remember it flowering at once point. And then it died.
...Espresso martini? Whatisthis. What. What.
A friend of mine in elementary school had a pet cactus named Chester. He'd bring it to class everyday. I think he's a reverend now.
Coffee bar thing at the market was selling them for $6. That on top of the sangria was really not a good idea.
...You know the most interesting people.
Coffee+alcohol. Dangerous combo, but oh so good and delicious. I don't know if I'll find something as crazy as a coffee martini around here, but I will try.
It is terrifying, and no-one else should try it ever.
You have no-one to blame for this but yourself.
I have a nasty habit of doing precisely what people tell me not to do. This might be one of those times I should have broken the habit, lol. Well as long as I don't write drunken pr0n again or something equally absurd I should be fine... I hope.
Well, don't say I didn't warn you.
