CHRISTMAS party with ER staff at a local bar tonight. There was much beer, dancing, and music loud enough to render coherent conversation impossible. For most of the evening, the TV monitors showed an ESPN show that seemed to be about roping calves. I don't know anything about this, but it looked like cross-species B&D. It was a very odd counterpoint.
I'm not much of a bar-goer, and honestly, I hadn't been to a really noisy bar in more years than I care to think about. It's almost 4 hours since I left, and I still smell like cigarette smoke. At one point the nurses I was with got tired of waiting in line at the women's restroom, and made a frontal assault on the men's, throwing the men out. No photos, unfortunately. Music was rock, rap, and rap-rock. It's funny, white kids like rap, but they dance better to rock; rap beats may be too complex. The crowd looked early to mid 20's. I was probably the oldest guy there, but I still enjoyed myself.
Didn't take my camera, so, no photos, but many incriminating digital photos were taken by others. Gina, Katie, send me your pictures!
