Nor beef dinner for that matter.
I met up with Aron and ITP-Reader Stacy at Midtown Tavern last night where we battled three other teams in trivia. We won.
What we didn’t win was the dinner that we ordered. After awhile it became clear that our orders were not arriving. And, when we finally asked we found out that the kitchen’s printer was not getting orders. (All I could picture in my mind was Gordon Ramsay going berserk over this.) Were the place crowded with hungry trivia players this may have been detected and resolved quickly, but alas it was not. During the final round of the game we canceled our food orders and settled up our $28.50 bar tab, which was covered by our $30 in previous trivia winnings.
Hungry when I arrived home I heated up a frozen Jamaican beef patty (purchased a box of them at Costco) and finished off some chocolate-covered almonds that I purchased at Target after Christmas.
Next week: A return to Corner Tavern in Edgewood for trivia.
Further discouraging an immediate return to Midtown Tavern was the appearance of two smokers at the bar; we are under the impression that Midtown Tavern is non-smoking inside, but the bartenders gave each man an ashtray so perhaps they’ve reverted back to smoking or just ignore their own rule?
My Thick Skull Continues To Flake
For the past two days I have been using Neutrogena’s “Extra Strength” T/Gel shampoo with no apparent success; I know, it’s only been two days. Today I will resume using the cream prescribed by my doctor; it truly makes it impossible for me to have any look other that “Messy Man” so I was hoping the shampoo would start working. If no improvement occurs by next week I will have to return to my doctor for further investigation.
This is really puzzling to me because I don’t ever recall having anything of this sort during my near-forty-years of adult life. It’s a good thing that I have so many other bodily maladies that keep away the ladies, else I might be worried that my new dry scalp has been repelling them.
Can we add “dry scalp” to the “Dad Bod” that’s been in the news lately?
I am going to try and keep tonight a free night. I really need to do three things this weekend:
- Clean and organize my house. I want it to stop looking as if someone has ransacked the place.
- Get a long bike ride in tomorrow morning.
- Go to work for awhile on Sunday, and follow that with doing laundry.
Oh yeah, I also need to do German homework as well as more of my “After Ten Coding” project.
Hope that you have a great weekend.
