After The Ball Is Over
My husband had told me that assorted local restaurants would be providing samples of their wares inside, so I was looking forward to that. However, when we finally got in, the crush of humanity was intense and the lines at all the food tables were mob scenes. I managed to get some pasta from Rocco's (very good!) and some cookies and ice cream (I must say, it is nice to have waiters walking around with hor d'oerve trays with little ice cream cones on them, and I know I don't know how to spell hor d'ouerve) and then I waited forever to get some tritip sandwiches from the Buckhorn table. The theater was also providing free popcorn, sodas and hot dogs, and other tables had shrimp on a stick and ceviche (no thank you, raw fish at a movie not my thing). When the movie start time came, everyone left the lobby so I went back to the now deserted Buckhorn table and got another serving. I took it into the theater with me and shared it with my husband. We agreed that slabs of beef is really a great dessert.
We saw Seabiscuit, which I enjoyed very much. It sparked my interest in the real story so I ordered the book it was based on.
Today was the end-of-the-month namerun, and it turned out to be more exciting than usual. My boss did the actual namerun herself and sent me on a drive to the county seat to deliver some docs that had been misplaced and needed to be recorded. A field trip! When I got back, the namerun was done and my day began.
Now I am going to watch the Amazing Race that Abby recorded for me last week and have a lovely evening.
