Birthday party FAIL

I tried to go to a birthday party in the city. I got all dressed up. Drove up. Hit traffic. It wasn’t too bad.

Then I tried to find parking near Pacific & Hyde. On the hills. I drove around the block. Around a bigger circle. I drove around for an hour.

And then I quit. I wad tired and hungry and bitchy. Even if I did find parking 10 blocks away, I would not be a party girl after climbing those hills in four-inch heels.

So I drove home.

Got to Lilly Macs just as the kitchen was closing. They took pity on me and made me dinner anyways. Shephard’s pie and a Guinness later and I’m feeling much better.

But I’m sorry I missed the Party at the Pacific. Public transportation was going to take 2 1/2 hours each way, but after three hours in my car for nothing, Caltrain/Muni seems like it was the better option.

    I could just feel your angst! I felt so sorry for you. But kudos for not going down with the ship and picking yourself back up.


  2. ALWAYS take public transit! Always. Someone else drives! K, you’re not afraid to throw down on a pint or ten, so why would you wanna drive, ever? Besides, there are so many books to read while someone else is doing the stressful stuff (driving). Still, glad you got dinner and a stout to decompress. Yum.
