the birthday/going-away dinner ...

A friend of mine — L — is leaving the paper and the island and moving to San Antonio to be with her fiance ... so we had a nice little dinner to celebrate her birthday a little early, since she'll be gone when it happens next month, and as a bit of a going-away thing.

Here's the opening pages of the menu. Some good stuff. I had the roast beef salad, bruschetta and the meat sauce gratin — which was basically a meat sauce spaghetti covered in cheese and baked. Yummy.

This me next to L. Well ... you all knew it was me ... and now you know L. If you see her in San Antonio, say hello!

Hmm ... after looking at the above photo after posting, I feel that L deserves a much cuter photo of her on here, one that is much more representative of what she looks like, so here is one from a couple of months ago, at a lunch we had together not too long after I first got the digital camera.

Even this photo doesn't really do her justice. I need to dig through my PDN Christmas party photos to find one that really shows her in an even better light than these other pics. Hmm ... I think I have just the one. Here it is ...

Yes ... much better, don't you think?

mmm ... chocolate cake. It was a dense cake without much sugar ... I guess more European/Italian ... but still good; strong chocolate.

I was going to post something much longer and more involved and deep and witty and funny ... but then I didn't.

Heh.

I vote for the pic where she is drinking with the straw ! Odds are she would kill you for posting that one but it really makes her look like she is a lot of fun.

As for the chocolate cake....bastard! Now I have chocolate on the brain and the Westin down the street has a chocolate cheesecake that is to die for...resistance is futile. NO NO NO it's the Borg of chocolate!!!! ~slaps self hard~ That is better.

BTW - WHAT HAPPENED TO THE GUAM OF THE DAY FACT?? You know I am pathetic and now you make me go out and search these things out for myself - meanie!
