It was Lisa's birthday on Thursday. Tonight was her party. It was at a place called Veil on Lower Queen Anne. Anyone who knows me, knows it takes a LOT to get me to cross Boren Street. But outside of the obvious reasons (uh, celebrating a friend's bday?), I'm so glad I went. I don't know why I would be surprised that Lisa's friends are great. She is so it stands to reason her friends would be too. Plus it's just good for perspective -- people just don't wear clothes like that where I go. I've never been a fan of 'dressing up' -- it's one of the reasons I LOVE Seattle. It's so 'come as you are'. I can go to Lark or work wearing the same jeans. So to be in a new bar -- full of folks 'dressed to the Nile!' (one of Lisa's friends frequently mixes up popular cliches) -- well, it's good for me to shake things up. Happy Birthday, honey!
