Pictures of My Food
I'd wanted to go to the Gorden Biersch brew pub for quite a while. San Diego has tons of little breweries and I never seem to get to them. Silly me.
When we sort of stammered about which beers we wanted the waitress said, "Would you like to try a free sample of everything?" Why yes, that sounds like an excellent idea.
I had the hefeweizen. It was much sweeter than I'm used to, and very flavorful. I think they might have added some spices. I thought it was cool that they had special glasses just for the hefeweizen. But Mark said that's how they do it in Germany. I thought it was pretty good.
The glasses were on the large side and maybe I shouldn't have had two. As we were driving back to the hotel Mark and I agreed the sign should have said, "Right turn only (no, really, we're serious)".
Mike - Mark said he was looking forward to seeing all 3000 photos from Wales. I think he's trying to talk Lisa into getting a digital camera. After that I guess they'll need to get their own domain huh?
Lisa tried to convince me that TV was a wonderful medium that made the world much more entertaining and interesting. HA! I think NOT!
I got the distinct impression they were trying too hard with the food. Like maybe the chef knew what good food was from reading great recipes without ever eating great food. We had a steak baked in phillo dough appetizer that mystified everyone. Cooking is more than just arranging different ingredients near each other. At some point flavor must be considered.
We had loads of fun though.
Tomorrow - The FBI now takes orders from software monopolies.
It looks like Alli is pregers (sp?). (and people make fun of me for showing pictures of my food)
In other news.....................
It sounds like Amber could use some good thoughts sent her way. I think she deserves some.
On the other hand......................
ctrl-alt-ego seems to be in the magical throes of love. Don't worry. It gets better. Of course..... then it gets worse, and you get drunk cause it feels better to have a pity party while you're drunk, and then you wake up with a splitting head ache and feel like an idiot, and you swear off love forever. But you shouldn't worry about that right now.
Are we having fun yet?
And I agree, it's all Eric's fault. You know I heard a rumor he didn't really exist, and that the whuzzup site was actually being done by a female prison inmate in Canada. Anyone else heard about that?
I'm getting this question everyday now:
"Do you know the music to the diet coke commercial where the guy is talking about his wife, who is wearing her underwear."
I don't have a TV. Anyone knows the answer to this?
