so yesterday after classes ended, my classmates and I decided to go out for a beer. We went to teh local Irish bar (since there seems to be an Irish bar in every city around the world) and there we ordered our pints of beer. of course I had one pint and was good for the night, but some of my friends enjoyed the hour hour supply of beer more than one or two pints... hehe. It amazed me that the eight of us, who had just spent the WHOLE week together in a little classroom would be able to go out to a bar and enjoy each others company. But the time was great. We drank our beer and guessed what type of cars each other had back home, we talked about our parents, we talked about religion, and most importantly we talked about nothing and everything pertaining to life.
I sat next to the two Sarahs and James, nwo are all quite lively company. Sarah T. is from Ohio but went to school in So. California and although she may be quite in class, when she does express her opinions they are stated so eloquently that your attnetion is captured. The other Sarah (B.)is from the Berkeley area and she and I hold up the liberal side of the politicla spectrum in class. If I could say anything about this Sarah I would say that she is is classy that even when she is smoking, she looks classy. She has spent considerable time in both England and Australia and I love hearing her impression of their accents. James is from St. Louis and honestly is one of the wierdest and funniest people I have met here. He is as white as can be, but I think he believes that he is black. he says things like, "what up dirty" and other St. louis slang and you wouldnot expect from a white boys mouth.
In any case, the afternoon was fun, we stayed for about 3 hour drinking and unwinding from the long week of teaching. Both Sarah B. and James are planning on staying in this area so maybe this Irish pub friday afternoon deal can become traditiona, who knows.
