"last night Gee Julie and I attended a Bulgarian soiree at French cultural center while the rest of the BGN "staff" was at Jon Richman. Gee Julie had been at the Greek consulate; I arrived, she'd RSVP'd. I found her and she introduced me to the Bulgarian consulate; the joke is, I was dressed like Duck Dynasty, Julie had on nice outfit and the consulate was suit and tie; but did we PARTY! I beleive "yaz-oo" was said as we clinked glasses of Bulgarian wine; the food was very similar to Greek food AND plentiful (Julie described our "Human Garbage Disposal" as "decadent gluttony"...hmm...like Henry VIII! HOW many wives?....)...Julie got up and danced with the Bulgarian dance troupe (it's like a Greek version of the Torah),whilst I opted for Bulgarian WHISKEY! THAT was damn sure some firewater! went outside and had a smoke, met a Quincy lady from Bulgaria and told her 'bout the Albanian place near my house...lastly cornered by a krazee old man who talked NONSTOP like a Blodgett about WWII and Russia; VERY interesting facts, but this dude WAS Mental Enuff....am working the weekend, so MIGHT behave micelf, but tell me THAT wasnt fun last night! and of course,my "partner in crime", Gee Julie,always up for anything! "Anything?" she asks?....")......
