Black eye

First day of work

Ever drink and blog? It's not pretty... but it's what I'm doing right now. I'm leaving incoherent messages all over my friends' facebook pages. I bet I get defriended before this night is out. How did I get to this low state? I discovered a restaurant just TWO BLOCKS from my new house in Alexandria, Virginia. Check out the ridiculously named Bilbo Baggins on Queen Street.

Oh, I have a feeling I will be spending a lot of time here. Alexandria is proving to be a lovely place to live. After work (my *first* day at my new job!) I went for an amazing jog along the banks of the Potomac River, looking northward towards the Washington Memorial and the mall. Simply magical. Unfortunately, I got lost jogging around some sort of coal plant, and when I found my way back home after an hour (I had intended to only jog thirty minutes), I discovered that I had locked myself out of my new apartment! I could see my cell phone on the table in the foyer, but my door key wouldn't work. Frantically, I jumped the back fence, and luckily I forgot to lock the back patio door.

Now I'm eating far too much cheese (I got the appetizer sampler for two) and drinking FAR too much beer (every single one of their October specialties). This place is one of those trendy microbrew places, and I imagine that I will be spending the next few months working my way through their extensive menu of imports. Here is tonight;s list of reviews. Keep in mind that I am incredibly drunk right now, and have no idea what I'm blogging.
