|Work when I come in...(I'm proud of my rainbow.)||Work when I come out!|
A link you need to go read, cause it's hilarious: http://www.livejournal.com/users/queennell/273365.html I won't even tell you what it's about. Just read it. Funny. (okay so I will, mostly for my searching engine. ;) It's the noob version of Stephen Hawkings A brief history of time.
I so should not be listening to this music right now.
Anyways, I am. So, let's see. What did I promise. I could talk more about being gorgeous, but I'd rather not atm. I'm in the wrong frame of mind. I feel ugly, poor, uncultured, and a whole bunch of other things that require more than one word to describe but aren't any good. So it would devolve into a 'pity me' post, and I didn't want one. Much like I didn't want one on the other thing with the gorgeous bit, just that I would like to upgrade my image. I dunno, become the snazzy model Jeff 2.0.
So, that leaves good food. As soon as my 'date' (I'll get to that in a minute) comes back around, I'll post the name of the steakhouse, and a link to a website if there is one. It was dark inside, really dark. Which is good for eating, not so good for ordering. They even offered flashlights, but it wasn't that dark to me or her. I can imagine for some older, or less sighted people however...They had an extensive wine collection. We did not partake in wine, though I had the BEST MIDORI SOUR EVER. Oh my. GOD. Actually, I had 3. But don't tell. =) We both had the 'filet' steak, though I had mine butterflyed and they added shrimp on top. That was the main course. 12 oz of meat seared and then cooked to absolute perfection. Seared, as the waitress was willing to point out, in an 1800 degree oven, patented by them apparently. The plates came out real hot, let me tell you. :) For my appetizer, I had carpaccio. For a pre dinner, I also had french onion soup the way french onion soup should be (or as I told the waitress, the way my mom cooks it). For those of you who are paying attention, I really like it and have a high expectation of it. My date had not but had the crap they pass off in panera as french onion soup and did not like it. I made an instant convert that day. With every bite of food the entire meal she's having miniature orgasms. I was glad I got to watch? But seriously. It was -great- food. If only ever meal could be like this, life would be a better place. And it's not even that it would be that expensive, just requires a bit of prep time. We spent a bit over 2 hours eating and talking and sharing. It was good for me, cause I really think she needed a bit of distraction from the drama in her life (a divorce, bankruptcy, and a stupid decision of hers to move to Canada...), and well. I dunno. Food is a good thing. There's a reason I dig the foodtv channel. It's because food is such an integral part of our lives and it can mean so much to us to just share a meal and company and it brings out the good side in us to have that pleasant feeling. It makes me feel less poor. ;)
So there you go, a bit of good mealness. If only the dinner could have been romantic and not a , 'sorry to hear life's shit' meal. :)
Don't have much else to say worth saying at the moment. Gamed on Friday, and it was good. Josh is going to drive me crazy, he is. Either that or I'll shoot his character in the head. ;) But that's why I ran the campaign the way I did, the point was to let the characters drive the plot through my setup. we'll see how it goes.
Work sucks. The end.
