AbbyCadabby and I are planning on being there for dinner. We will probably also be interested in something during the afternoon depending on what everyone wants to do.

Seems as though interest in this has waned a bit. Maybe if we introduce some shenaningans, like- oh, I don't know, another pedi for Moo perhaps?, we might perk this thing back up.

What say you, Moo? Or is anyone else up for a pedi/other shenanigans?

Sad - let me know if you want us to pick you up on our way so you can get your drank on (but this will involve swinging by my parents house to drop off the kids in Roswell - not too far out of the way).

It was so great to meet you gahurts, although I feel like I should apologize for the fact that you got stuck sitting next to me.

One of the highlights of my evening:
Me to WH (as he is hemming and hawing over ordering some pretzel thing that was on the menu): If you want the fucking pretzel, then get the fucking pretzel.
WH to waiter: I guess I'll have the fucking pretzel.
Waiter to WH: I'm sorry sir. We don't have fucking pretzels. We only have regular pretzels.

I immediately knew I loved the waiter.

madseason sitting next to you was a blast! I had a regular pretzel too. I think the fucking pretzel would have been better. Moo's comment about that being why the pretzel is so twisted was just right.

Thanks for explaining that Madseason, I wondered what the fucking pretzel thing was about. Not sure how I missed that conversation.

Moo has the pics but he's in transit so I imagine he will post later.

We had a blast!

I never did figure that out. Nobody ordered Asian food and there wasn't even any Asian food on the menu. At All!! So why did the waiter drop a half dozen sets of chopsticks on the table and then take most of them back when we were done? (We did play with a few of them).
