He was supposed to come between 8:00 and 10:00, and I guess I was the first customer of the day.
Checking my e-mail, I found this response to my Wolfline Feedback that I submitted last night:
|Thank you for reporting this John as talking on a cell phone while driving is not permitted.|
Uh-oh, someone's in trouble.
I rode out to Smithfield today, and bought a bunch of stuff at Harry & David—a case of Onion & Pepper Relish, some Honey Roasted Sesame Sticks, some Yogurt Pretzels, some Peanut Butter Pretzels, a jar of Pineapple Salsa, and a jar of Jalapeño Tomato Cheese Dip.
I stopped at the Bass while there, and bought two pairs of shorts. Yes, shorts. And, yes, I know it's winter out.
On the way home I stopped at the western apparel store on Highway 70 in Garner, where I looked for some black t-shirts on sale, but found none that I liked.
I stopped at bar and grill in White Oak Crossing on the way home and had some wings, which were killer.
I stopped in Kohl's, which I've never been in before, and looked for t-shirts on sale. There were a lot on sale, but I didn't like any of them. I did like that store, though.
Myra had most of the staff to dinner tonight, with the exception of Patti and Dani, who both had a stomach virus. Dani was actually there, since she's staying with Myra, but she stayed up in her room most of the evening.
We had a killer dinner, and it was fun participating in its creation. Elizabeth and I made the Greek Salad, Myra cooked the main entrée—an authentic Greek Spaghetti recipe she received from a friend, and then after one demo roll by Myra, Elizabeth and I formed the Bacon-Shrimp-Cream Cheese-Jalapeño rolls (well, half without the jalapeños), and then sent them to the oven.
I brought my Onion-Pepper-Relish-Cream Cheese dip (hence the trip to Harry and David earlier in the day) and some Tostito Bite-sized Rounds, all of which was well-received.
We had some great conversation along with the fantastic food. I met Traci, and got to know Steffi, who I had no idea was from Germany. I thought she was just shy. :-)
That so sounds like an Overheard in New York City:
|Speaker #1: Is she shy?|
Speaker #2: No, she's just from Germany.
I really enjoyed our discussion about the school systems in Germany.
Dessert consisted of deep-fried dough balls, that were then rolled in hot honey, cinnamon, and/or pecans. Absolutely delicious.
Aside: Myra, feel free to comment with the actual names of the entrée and the dessert if you wish. :-)
I left Myra's about about 9:15, fully intending to go to Flex for Show Tunes Night.
I stopped by home to put the leftover dip in the fridge, and did the ever-dangerous move of catching 40 winks when you're tired.
The 40 winks turned into 400, which turned into 4,000, which turned into 40,000. I woke up the next morning at around 7:00.
