G'wan.... you guys are embarrasing me.
Thanks for the thoughts and prayers for my sanity:crazy:
It was a low key day, nothing special. I did trade a new IPOD for a new home theater system and some cash and then had a job interview (which we will talk about in a separate post!)
The we had a Martini (dry, with a twist, olives on the side) and went to dinner at a Mediteranean restaurant where I had a nice glass of Rothchild Merlot and the Paella with Chicken Osso Buco and Chorizo. Nice, but too much rice, and not enough Chorizo. At the restaurant we noticed that there were several birthdays going on. The little jazz trio would sing Happy Birthday. Our waiter stopped at our table to turn his back to the booth behind us to light the candle on a slice of Birthday cake. We had always gone to a Family sports themed rest. for our birthdays because they give you this big honkin hunk o' chocolate fudge cake and ice cream. Me, never being one to pass up a free dessert asked our waiter if they celebrated customers birthdays, and I mentioned this other restaurant, partially joking about how all the wait staff get together and sing. He laughed and said yes they do, and he's glad he isn't at the other place and having to sing. So I mentioned that it was my birthday today too! Sheila chimed in how old I was. I could have sworn the guy made a comment like "yeah...sure"....and walked away. When the dishes were cleared away and we said we were full. We decided that if we got the check and no cake, then he thought I was full of ....if we got the cake then he believed me... alas no cake.....
Fine! I went home and had some Poppycock Popcorn and some Irish Cream to sooth my fractured psyche.....
All in all another year gone by, and every one that passes is aother one I am grateful for! Cheers to all!
