~ Went down to Victoria for Ann Dams birthday party yesterday. It was a pretty good party. I met a Chinese guy named Ming who tricked me into thinking he was from Nunavut and made me feel guilty for asking him if he was from Japan. Ann filled me in on his deal this morning, it seems this is standard game at parties. I also met a fellow Philly Joe Chambers fan who I may jam with at some point.
Then I got really drunk and punched Chris Clark in the face really hard. His head snapped back and slammed into the cupboard which made a really loud noise and everyone came running. I think I was fairly a gentleman about it though. I gave him three warnings, which he ignored, and then I took his wine glass out of his hand before clocking him and then handed it back directly after. Still, it was really embarrassing to lose control like that and I’m rather ashamed. At the time it seemed like he deserved it, and it felt really satisfying to do, but in the morning it was all just really stupid and regrettable. He disappeared shortly after the punch and we hope he made it home okay.
We went to DeDutch for breakfast where I had the saltiest beef dip on the planet which I foolishly thought would be a great hang-over cure. Ken had an omlet he described at a “kitchen sponge with corn” and the girls had tasty-looking panacokes.
I just want to point out, as there seems to be some confusion, that I regret the punch and feel very remorseful about it. I was immediately ashamed and embarrassed by my action and I am very sorry Chris left the party before I could apologize in person as I would have liked to.
