I Get Around
So, do you want to know about the car trip? To be honest, my memory is kind of fuzzy from all the Guinness. But I do have photographic evidence.
Welcome to America, home of heart disease and debt:
M and I shuddered uncontrollably when we saw this sign. Then we walked into the McDonald's across the street and ordered a three-gallon strawberry milkshake that took two hours to consume.
Why are my eyeballs pink?
Um, anyway. Regarding the dinner party last Friday night... it was mostly lots of fun, but also a little uncomfortable for various reasons. The first reason was that we couldn't figure out what the heck to take as a gift.
We usually take a bottle of wine when we're invited somewhere for dinner, but then we discovered that the host of the dinner party is a bit of a wine enthusiast who has an estimated 700 bottles in his collection.
Flowers! we decided. We'll take a nice boquet of spring flowers!
Cheese! we concluded. A nice gourmet cheese is just the thing!
Then we found out that there was a cheese course already planned for the dinner, featuring seven cheeses.
In the end, M made zucchini bread and I wrapped it in Press n' Seal and stuck a bow on it. Happy happy, y'all.
I wonder which wine best complements fried bologna? I suddenly have a wonderful idea for the next dinner party...
