so the plan got revised to Mexican food and the liquor store. Ginger and i had already had dinner, so we had dessert (mm, fried ice cream) while the boys ate. then we chased around for an open liquor store. the one on 12th was closed. the one on 23rd was closed. we gave up, went to the store, got port and cider, and came home. i consulted the 'net and discovered that we could have made the store on Broadway or the one on 4th south. ohwell. tipsyness ensured anyhow, as did an mst3k'ing of Mission Impossible.
i'm still tipsy. soon, i will sleep.
