Decatur Is Greater 

"El Diablo Bastard" calls me up and asks the eternal open ended question: "So what are yo doing?" Never one to beat around the bush (unless it's my own), I tell him to just ask me out already! It's a good thing he told me that he like people to be direct, or else that coulda been ugly.

We decide to do something different and hand out in Decatur. ( I would tell you what Decatur is known for...but I don't think it's much) As frequent customers of Apres Diem we decide to check out the sister spot Carpe Diem. Yes, yes I know...not much DIFFERENT. Well I said we were gonna do something different, not lose ourm inds and go to a poetry reading at Java Monkey.

Wow, this place is really nice. It's about twice as big as Apres, and they even have a DJ on Sunday nights. Better still they offer the now ubiquitous Bottomless Glass of Wine( Did ya say bottomless..) Well we order some drinks and chill out on one of tghe sofas in the main room.. Crazy thing is we were so comfortable with each other. I think I really like him (Oh, oh... danger Will Rogers... danger)

The Bastard Who Could be My Brother shows up, (Congrats on the new gig again bro!) and we all just chill. Now The Mad Dater must have friend's approval on Bastards that I think I like. Good sign... they seem to be getting along well.

After The Bastard Who Could be My Brother leaves and my third glass of wine kicks in (The server looked at me like "I can't believe that she drank all of that" - hey The Bottomless Glass was their idea) the couch felt like home. And by the moves that "El Diablo Bastard" was putting on me on that couch, I knew we better jet - before the couch became a bed....
