tobermory's Diaryland Diary



So, I finished the indoor triathlon thingy. Now I just have to find out what trinket the finishers get. Because Iím assuming that the Ďprizeí is going to be something cheesy Iím rewarding myself by using the discount coupon that the gym sent to me for my birthday to get a 1 Ĺ hour massage tonight.

I am so dreading tomorrow night. I took the night off from the animal shelter because all of Steveís siblings and their spouses/children/significant others/close friends have a group dinner planned. It was supposed to be at an upscale local seafood restaurant where Steveís brother works because he gets a 40% discount. That got nixed because they wonít let him use it for that many people. Duh Ė I could have told them all that wasnít going to fly. There was no way they were going to let him use his 40% off for 15+ people. So, now weíre going to Buca di Beppo. Call me a snob but, blech. I try to make it a point not to go places where the main recommendation is how huge the portions are. Plus, I think (from the one time I went there about 10 years ago) all the food is served family style, which I hate. I am not a food sharer. My personal theory is that I order what I want the way I want it so that I can eat it and enjoy it. If I wanted what you ordered, then I would have ordered it myself. Iím not good at Chinese restaurants. Iím hoping that itís possible to get either a small portion of something or maybe just a big salad. Iíd bail out, but Steve has already told people that Iíd be there. Worse yet, the dinner is scheduled for 7pm and itís about 5 minutes from where I work so I have to find some way of killing 2 hours. Please donít suggest that I park myself at the bar and have a few glasses of wine (which would be my preferred time killer) because Iíll eventually have to drive home. Since I spent most of yesterday cramming all of my clean clothes into already overstuffed dresser drawers Iím thinking shopping wouldnít be a good idea. I suppose I could head to Target to buy some new curtains but how long can that take? Gah. If anyone has eaten at a Buca recently and has a suggestion or a favorite dish, let me know.
