(If this entry seems a bit clipped and stilted, it’s because I’m mildly stoned on codeine cough syrup.)
After a couple of pear vodka & Sprite martinis, we hit the People Mover station and rode to the Renaissance Center. Following a vertigo-inducing glass elevator ride to the top, we piled into Coach Insignia and started downing blueberry mojitos
The plan was to have a few and continue on to Proof, but everyone was hungry, so we stopped at a Coney in Greektown for some tastily unhealthy food, then called it a night.

Saturday afternoon I went to meet my new gaming group that I’m going to be playing Exalted with starting the end of May. They seem like a nice bunch of straight folks, although the “that’s so gay” comments were starting to pile up. I hadn’t told anyone about me yet, so sent the head of the group an email yesterday and we got it straightened out. I’m looking forward to playing; maybe it will help me run the game better. I get to be the Dawn Caste, which is a departure for me. I usually go for either wizard or stealth types, so it’ll be an interesting change to be a flat-out asskicker.
Once we hashed out what we were playing, they started on the game of Orpheus they’re winding up, and I went with Aaron to the Eagle. Met up with a2andy, slippe, and bullmanx, had a few drinks, and got my boots did by Andy’s boyfriend Rich. Finished off the night with chicken rings from White Castle.
Sunday we did dinner at bullmanx‘s with his partner James and slippe, which was a great baked salmon, pasta primavera, cesar salad, and cake. I picked up a slight cough and fever that afternoon, which was getting worse by evening. It wasn’t too bad yesterday at work, but got much worse toward the end of the day. I figured I’d better get over it fast, so took some codeine cough syrup, Tylenol PM, and a nighttime Airborne, then called it a night at 5:30pm. Rolled out of bed at 4:45am this morning, feeling somewhat better. Did my morning system changes for work, played some WoW, and here I am, mildly stoned on codeine, which makes work much easier to deal with.
