21, finally drinking.

Ok so tonight I went to two bars and had some drinks. The funny part was... I went with some church friends (and some non-church friends). We went to this great blues bar downtown called Rosa's first and then to Mother's.

I had sips of people's bear... didn't really like it. Then I had a coke with some crap in it which was good and not very alcohol-y. Then I had a Jeager-bomb (however you spell it) which I could NOT down in one shot, wimpy me. Hey cut me some slack this is the first time in my life i've ever had any real alcohol. Then I had a long island tea thing, which kinda tasted like tea mixed with a little bit of vomit. But not bad, actually. After that I got a bit buzzed which was kinda nice. Listened to the (amazing) music and ate my pretzels and drank my water. Buzz started to wear off and we went to Mother's where I had another Jeagerbomb, this time finishing it off quickly in one dose. That's really the long and short of it.

So I want to bring in my recording gear and do live recordings of the bands in Rosa's sometime, because they are amazing. Anyone reading this should consider going there sometime.

And to those that think its odd that A) matt good had some alcohol and B) had it with his church friends, my real logic is this: In Europe, people drink, and its no big deal. They don't have the alcoholism problems that we do here in the States. Its because we attatch this stigma to it sorta that it becomes a big deal. I don't think its a big deal. And when school starts I'm of course going to be completely dry because I signed a lifestyle statement saying that I would be, and I try to have some integrity. But the point is that a little bit of alcohol is actually GOOD for you, for one, and for two, its my fricken 21st, give me a break. Anyway, I had all my buddies pay for me, and that was awesome.

Wow thats quite a variety of drinks for your first dive :). The thing with beer is, most people don't like it right away, but then they appreciate its power, and then it starts to grow on them.
You should come have a few with *us* (you know who we are) before you get back to school.

I don't really think it's weird. You are now 21, so the law thing has no application anymore. As far as a church thing, we all know how much Jesus liked to party...I mean, he seemed to love turning water into wine. I would actually be quite suprised if Jesus never got drunk. I mean at least once. He was young once.
