Interesting Dinner

Howdy folks!  (Just had a flash of Vacation. "Park's closed.  The moose outside shoulda told ya.")  So, yesterday was nutballs (tm Laura Belle or Draz) at work.  Not necessarily in a bad way, but I'm in accounting and it is January, soooo...  Things would just be easier if everyone would do things that I think they should do in the way I think they should do them.  Agreed?  :) 

But after work, my girls and I escaped!  It was Interesting Dinner night and KK chose a winner.  We went to Del Frisco's Grille in Uptown.  First off, they had a valet which made me happy because parking in Uptown always stresses me out.  Second, the place was so cool.  It was definitely set up for the movers and shakers.  The bar had a lot of hotness in suits lined up in a row for me to see.  Now Uptown is Gayborhood adjacent, so it is highly possible that much of the pretty in the room wasn't interested in our table, but it doesn't keep me from checking it out!

We had a semi-circle booth so we were able see each other and chat together.  Cowgirl had to miss this month because her super awesome hubby is in country from Iraq.  Can you believe her priorities??  Ha!  I ordered a drink to start.  They had a tequila shot called the honey badger and thinking of a couple of bloggers, I almost got it.  But then I remembered that I am 38 and I had to work the next day, so I decided on a bourbon drink called an M-Line.  It was delicious!  In fact, it was so good, I had two!
For dinner, I ordered the chicken schnitzel with zucchini and egg noodles.  I also ordered a side of macaroni and cheese, because if macncheese is on the menu, I must try it!  The chicken was out of this world to die for.  I LOVED it!  The macaroni and cheese was very good, but was totally eclipsed by the schnitzel.  My bill was *ahem* hefty, but since I think I should get at least two more meals out of it, it isn't crazy bad.  Plus, those drinks were worth it!  My imaginary boyfriend should totally take me on a date there!

How precious are we?  While waiting for the valet, we started talking to a dirty old man.  You could tell he had a lot of moolah and I'm guessing he makes a super awesome sugar daddy for one of those hotties at the bar.  Anyway, he threw something that looked like a nut onto the ground and told us to stomp on it.  Well, some guy asks me to bust his nut (grody, Beth Ann!!) do something, who am I to say no?  I stomp and viola!  Out pops a condom.  Hahahahahaha!!  A couple of my poor conservative friends just about died on the spot.  Poor girls.  I thought it was hilarious!  I mean not necessarily the joke, but that he actually did it.  Silly boys.  Even when they are geriatric boys.  :)

All in all, it was another lovely night with my friends.  I'm back at work today and still working the "eating every 2 hours" thing.  It seems to be really alleviating my hunger issues, so that's really good.  Until TOM is gone, I won't know how I'm doing weight-wise though.  I feel good, so it's all good.

Today my plan is to walk at lunch and Jazzercise after work.  Wednesday is Two-fer Day!

I really wish I had girlfriends who would do this every month. My friends suck! ha ha.
Well, actually I really wish I could eat real food and go out to dinner and use a fork but until my unfill this weekend, that ain't happenin'!

What fun!! That nut thing is hilarious! Ironically, we have this random gift exchange thing in my family, and someone brought those nuts for someone to open back in the 80s. All us kids were like, what's that balloon??? HAHAHA

I would have been rolling on the floor if that had happened to me and my girlfriends.

I think I have to go to Del Frisco's now. :)

I have to admit I would have been one of the embarrassed ones! You are such a great personality. And you girls are hotties!!
