I’m trying to think of a great song for an opening. I’m drawing a blank. My eyes are watering. I’m tired. I can’t think. What the heck am I doing, you may be asking and then again you may not even care. I don’t even care! I’m at the Elks right now waiting for Rick to finish up a project here; mainly fixing their computers! Oh the joy of being his wife and going with him to calls. So, I’m sitting at the bar and half of the car is smoking and the other half won’t shut up. I guess they have a right to talk, or hack up their lungs. Whatever. Football is loudly playing on the TV. I am just having the time of my life today.
Yesterday we went to Thai and Friends for a celebratory dinner with Ursula. I don’t think I wrote about this. Rick passed his test for some Apple certification. So his mom took us out to eat; our choice. We wanted to eat at this Thai place we had been once before but we didn’t eat there. We just watched a band play. And it was loud and obnoxious. So, we went and once we pulled up we looked around and we didn’t see Ursula’s car anywhere but we saw Joe and Sammi’s. We walked in and I saw them sitting down so we went and said hi. We got a bigger table and we waited for his mom to get there. He called her and said that she was waiting for us to call her so she knew when to leave. While we waited we ordered our appetizers. I really wanted to try the dumplings so we got those and Joe and Sammi got some spring rolls. I think it was seven when we ordered that.
Ursula got there around seven thirty. Maybe a little sooner. Our appetizers had just gotten there. Michael showed up and he sat down with us too. Big table. Large group. I could tell Ursula wasn’t fellin’ it. Our waiter came back to our table around seven forty; right as soon as Ursula got there. We all ordered our food. I got Yellow Curry. It sounded yummy and Rick ordered Mango Chicken. Sounded even better. And so we waited. And talked and during that time the band showed up and they started playing. Kinda loud. I ran out of Sprite and the waiter had walked by four times and didn’t even glance at our table. Finally I said really loud, “Can I have some Sprite?” He looked over and walked back to our table and grabbed my glass and heaved the biggest sigh ever. I’m serious. It was soooo rude. Sammi and I looked at each other and couldn’t believe he had just done that!!
A few minutes later Sammi needed some more water. Well, the waiter didn’t come and we didn’t even see him anymore. So Joe got up and went to the back and poured a glass for Sammi and brought it back to her. And noone noticed!! It was crazy. Unbelievable! Michael knows the owner and we’ve met him, so Michael went up to Otto, the owner, and told him how long the food was taking and he said he would go check on it. Our food came an hour and 10 minutes later. Holy mackeral. So, even though it took a long time I still want to go back. But maybe for lunch because I don’t want to get that waiter. But knowing us, he would be there and be the only waiter available!!
Afterwards we all went to the Vue, except Ursula. I had a cherry bomb with Sammi and that was it. Then I had ginger ale. The excitement. The waitresses look like such hookers! It’s crazy. The band wasn’t that great. They were called something like Box for Pee Wee or something like that. They were all the way from Tampa. Ooooh. The excitement. The best part was when the DJ played the good music!! We all were up dancing up in our little perch. I really like where we sit. I think it’s our assigned seating. I can count the times I’ve been there on one hand but we’ve always sat at the same table. Except for our reception. Only exception.
Tonight were going to some local place called the Pick N Shack. Doesn’t that name alone mean greatness? Yeah, I can feel the excitement coming from everyone around me. They have local bands come and play and apparently people bring their tents and sleep over and all that. Sounds sketchy to me. So, I don’t know what were doing tonight really. Joe and Sammi were going to come with us but Sammi has to work late. We’ll see how it all works out. I want to go to Disney. That just occured to me. I want to go now!! Well not now, because I don’t want to go now. Actually the weather outside feels soooo nice that it would be a good time to go now. But then again Sammi couldn’t come beause she has to work late. So……dilemna. The fact that I don’t work there and can’t get in whenever I want to is a dilemna too. Wow……..
I’ll end it here. No quote today. Nothing. I’ve got nothing.
I love you ALL
