diana had recently reconnected with a friend from college and he was going to be in town over the holidays. he and a few friends were planning on going bowling, so he invited diana and i to join them. its been quite a while since we last went bowling, so we were both excited for the fun night out! mom and papa offered to put ledger to bed so we could go out for the night. we met up at the bowling alley behind the old eastbrook mall and played a few games with everyone. it was fun to meet jeff and his friends, do some bowling, and trash talk the other guys (not that i actually had any game, but it was still fun to pretend that i did...). afterward we stopped at the restaurant down the street for a little bit to eat. it was really fun to hang out with some new people, or at least new to me!
