Hi Ellie
tonight is 晚上 or  今晚?
Are they different?
I feel fun to learn Chinese.
I think 随便 is a nice word.
去不去都随便。我们随便谈话把! 你随便吃。

Hi, takak! 我很好,好久不见,你好吗?"晚上你请我喝什么?(Wǎnshang nǐ qǐng wǒ hē shénme?)" :) (Joking.)  "Tonight" in Chinese is "今天晚上," whose short form is "今晚." "晚上" means evening or night.  Yeah, "随便" is a nice word, but there are still some people who don't like this word. :) And for the sentence "我们随便谈话吧," it'll be better if you say "我们随便谈谈吧." :) Right, we have a lesson about "随便,"  have you seen it? The name is "It's up to you!" Let me know what you think about it. Good day!
