I'm baaaaaack
What a great vacation that was, I seriously did not want to come back to work this morning. I visited some friends up in MA and we just sat around eating, drinking and playing games, it was very relaxing. Mt friend Barb made 'from scratch' lobster bisque, yum :) I made my special Buffalo sauce for wings as well as a lasagna. Bill smoked and b-b-q'd some great ribs and Peg made some game hens stuffed with wild rice and grapes (with garlic mashed on the side).

Oh well, it was fun while it lasted but back to the grind.

8. Thanks :)
I would really much rather still be sitting around at my friends place sipping tequlia and playing games. Hows it going with you, any luck on the job search yet?

11. Luck?
Lots of possibilities but no committment from an employer yet. I went to the county building and filed for foodstamps. Humiliating. :(

3. so the Iguana has returned!
Never mind, just channelling an old SNL skit. Nothing to see here.

I cannot believe you went all the way to Massachusetts and didn't visit William Pitt.

5. it doesn't bother you, that he was eating WILD rice?
I would think that you wild things would stick together, or is that just what happens when bodies start slappin'?

10. The food was awesome
My friends Peg and Barb are both wonderful cooks. It was so nice to have a really well cooked meal for a change. I'm not a complete slouch when it comes to cooking (hey, single guys eventually learns to make something decently) but these girls are exceptional. When Barb made the bisque, she even made the lobster stock from scratch :wow: way ahead of my abilities :)
