For some reason, I've designated Monday night as the one where I go out for my own entertainment (rather than the plethora of nights where I go out to cause entertainment for others). So, it was hardly surprising that I grabbed some food at home after work last night and then headed townwards in search of intoxicating refreshment and company.
I should point out that Monday is still a "school night" so, intoxication was to be kept to a manageable level of moderation. The aim is to have a little fun and let my hair down. My hair keeps letting me down in its staunch refusal to cover enough of my scalp, so it's only fair that I should return the compliment.
The evening involved playing pool (the first time I've done so in a while - and it was hard to play with glasses on), and visiting not one, not two, but three different drinking establishments. We ended up at The Head of Steam, near the station, where I ran into a few notable people. Of most note was a young lady who approached me reticently and asked whether she'd seen me perform in a show in Edinburgh. I was slightly bowled over. she'd seen The Musical! You forget, when you perform a bunch of shows, that ever individual in the audience get their own unique experience from it. I can't really deal with compliments very well, but I had a go.
I also got into a discussion with the barmaid about etymology. This was one of many random discussions that occurred last night. Monday nights are quite good fun, really. I didn't get to bed until a bit later than planned.
