So, I left work at 2:30 yesterday (yay!), by the time I got home I was a soggy drippy mess of moisture ... or as one of my former co-workers used to say, "I was glistening."
I'm blaming the heat for my 2 hour nap and the grogginess that followed.
I got up around 5, showered, and, at 6, headed to the bus stop - where I waited a sweltering 25 minutes for the next friggin' bus. What the hell up with that? A bus went by at 5:40, so I figured the next one would come around 6. Ha. Silly me.
I still managed to get to the restaurant before Darryl and Mike - Ha! Oh, right, Mike invited Tomoko, Robert, and myself to join him and Darryl for dinner at Zola to celebrate Darryl's birthday (again). Robert couldn't make it though. The food was yummy. I had the field green salad and a side platter of baby carrots, green beans, and cheesy mashed potatoes.
The green beans fucking rocked my world!!! They were awesome! I made everyone try them:
"EAT THESE GREEN BEANS," I hollered to the table beside us, waving my green bean-laden fork wildly in the air.
Perhaps, I had one too many Zolas, the signature cocktail, which is basically a clear cosmo.
For dessert, Tomoko and I split the Creamsicle, which consisted of orange flavored stuff and cream stuff and chocolate. YUM. Darryl and Mike got the butterscotch flight - three puddings made with 12, 15, and 21 year old scotch. YUM! [I liked the 15 the best].
After dinner, I metroed back to AU with Mike so that he could drive me home. YAY. Then, I came in and crashed. I had a headache - rich food, alcohol, and heat. Not a good combination. But, still, a fun evening.
As an extra bonus, this morning the buses were FREE! Yay for Code Red Ozone Alerts! WOO HOO! AND, I managed to catch the #12, which stops right by my office, as opposed to the #15, which is more frequent, but stops several blocks away.
I have leftover Thai Curry for lunch today. I think I'm going to make a pasta salad tonight for dinner (yum!). It's also Laundry Day and Project Runway 3, in which we will find out who gets asked to leave! Exciting! Not that I can watch PR3 until a few days from now on Mike's TiVo, but, still ...
I think I'm going to the PR3 site to see if I can glean any extra information.
Make it work, people!
