Meeting of the Friends


Went to dinner on Friday night at a place I love called Fishbones in Greektown in downtown Detroit with Rebecca, Deanna, and her son, Ben. Rebecca and Deanna (surprisingly, since they are two of my closest friends) have never met, so it was fun for everyone to meet. And I have not seen Ben in forever, so I had fun talking and playing with him too. He is 4 now. I told him I was 10, and he agreed. I love to lose so many years in one night, yay! Anyway, food was incredible. I had the seafood gumbo soup which is literally the best soup ANYWHERE. Followed by sushi, a roll called the "Crunch Roll" which was also to die for. Loved it. It had shrimp, crab and lobster in it. Even Ben had sushi, which cracks me up. Deanna has done so good with introducing him to so many different kinds of food. He had a california roll, but informed me that he does not like the "sauce" (which would be soy sauce). We played with his little cars that be brought, and all gossiped and talked and "spelled" things when Ben should not hear. I have no idea what will be done when he can spell, which will be very soon since he can already speak in Chinese, LOL. After dinner, Rebecca and I went and walked around Greektown casino, which I have never been in. She played a penny slot and lost, bummer, and then we both went home as well. It was a very nice night, and I forgot my camera, so I have nothing on the picture front, :).

Yesterday, we worked, then Kory, Kurt and I headed to Pete's for dinner. Had shrimp creole, which was OK. I should just stick with my favorites there and not try anything new. My favs are SOOO good, something new just does not measure up. Watched football playoff games, came home, worked out, and watched more football.

Today, I am going to try and clean, and desperately need to grocery shop.

Have been really missing Panama and being on vacation, so to make myself feel better, I research trips for next December and we are really leaning towards Tanzania, which is one of my dream trips. Who knows though, with Kenya in a kinda civil war right now, we will have to wait and make sure it's safe to go there in December.

Off to get dressed.......and to try and be productive.....

Pick somewhere for Friday and don't tell me until like the day before so I don't build it up and be disappointed with my food like I did at Fishbones. Now I want some curlies from Petes...

I'm SO jealous of your trips!!

Did you manage to be productive?

I didn't.

And while I don't feel bad about it, I am pissed at myself because this week is going to be that much busier.

Next time you are in Vegas, my friend!
