fun, on a Friday night, outside of my apartment -- when's the last time *that* happened?

Michelle's bf was gonna meet up with her after Good Friday service, but he never got back to her, so she invited a bunch of us girls to grab a beer at the Burren. I was meeting kurukami (Mark) at the Tibetan restaurant for dinner, so I went down to the Square with them. (Michelle: "Suit up, girls! It's going to be legendary.")

Mark and I ended up getting into conversation with the people at the table next to us. The guy's local and his sister was visiting from college.
me: "Where do you go to college?"
her: "Smith -- It's in Western Mass."
me: [jaw drops] [attempts to collect self] "I went there."

There was much geek talk, primarily amongst the two guys (her brother joked that she is the white sheep in the family -- really not very geeky -- and I don't game). I love when I'm around people I don't already know and can mention fanfic and it's a completely understood concept.

After dinner, Mark said he could go for a drink, so we went to the Burren and in fact saw Michelle and Sue as they were getting ready to leave. Michelle was happy to stay, so we hung out there for about an hour. Meh on the loudness of the bar, but yay for hanging out. We talked about WriterCon and strip clubs (complete with local recommendations) and quoted HIMYM and BtVS.

[Oh, and I just checked the thermostat in the living room and it's at 66! So it wasn't just the Long Island Iced Tea making me feel warm.]
