Anyway, yeah, so I had a $40 Grilled Alaskan King Salmon with mushroom gravy and some mashed potatos with bits of bacon in them, SO GOOD. And I had two pina coladas and a small glass of the cabernet sauvignon that Bridgie's brother Stan picked out. I really really don't like wine, but I try it every time we get some anyway, and occasionally I've found ones that don't taste absolutely horrible. :D This one was one of those, it wasn't overpowering at all and I actually kind of liked it.
I don't know if it was the food or the booze, but I've been really freaking sleepy since we left there at, like, 7 pm. I was almost ready to fall asleep on the way to Stan's house, and then again on the way home. I woke up some when Stan opened his presents. He liked mine (a double DVD box set of two Cheech and Chong movies, heh) and Bridgie's and their sister Maria's (both got him Santana cologne) but he FREAKED over his mom's biggest present - tickets to see The Police at the Pond in Anaheim. Apparently he's wanted to see them since he was a teen, so that was really cool. He screamed and shouted and jumped up and down and was really wonderfully happy. He kept saying them performing again was like the Beatles getting back together (Stan's a professional musician, btw, and major music geek.)
Anyway, I'm gonna try to do some replies to stuff tomorrow, sorry I haven't replied to the last few things you guys have commented on! I hope to do lots of fannish things tomorrow, but you guys might be able to help with that too. I know at least one of you is into TMNT fandom, and I'm desperate to find good fics for either the 2007 movie or the 2003 series, non-spoilerish (I've already seen the movie, of course, and by tomorrow I should have seen the last episodes of the first season.) Anybody got any recommendations to help a sister out? :D
There's been a big RenFaire going on in Irwindale every weekend since April 7th, and the final day is tomorrow. Why was I not informed of this? ;_;
