Tales from the Sun

okay, well really this is just a spot for me to ramble on about random topics

Tuesday, June 01, 2004
A lot has happened since my last blog (less than a week ago)..
I think I had better start from the beginning.
Reader's Digest version of course:

Thursday -
Didn't feel well... stayed home from work.
Ran a few errands (needed fresh air).
Opened a new checking account while the bank next door was being robbed (I was in Southie of course). Dog barked at the robber and lunged at the cop chasing. That's our attack Spaniel at work.
Dinner with Joe & Julia at Delux (still the best grilled cheese in the South End)

Friday -
Worked from home (still not feeling super).
Had a root canal (my first, and hopefully my last).
The entire left side of my face was numb (interesting to say the least).
Then picked up our new glasses (aren't they funky?).
Then we had a quick dinner & cocktail (side car & very dirty martini) at Papparazzi.

Saturday -
Ran errands... did spring house cleaning...
Invented a fabulous new summer drink -- simple variation on the classic sidecar.
Kelly's Roast Beef - fried clams & roast beef sandwich (finally)
We have called it CK One Car

1 part V.S.O.P Brandy
1 part Belle de Brullet (Pear Brandy)
1 part Grand Marnier (gives is that orange kick)
1/2 fresh squeezed lemon
serve in a chilled martini glass with a heavily sugared rim

Sunday -
Wedding in Reading.
Burgers, Fries & Vanilla shake from Johnny Rockets.
Reception in Salem (there was dancing, laughter, & lots of food).

Monday -
Gorgeous Memorial Day.
Packed up the little family (minus the cats).
Headed up to Manchester by the Sea and watched a lovely little parade (our friend marched).
Picked up a few things for the post-parade BBQ.
THUD - Now we're off to the emergency room for a three hour hiatus (read Amanda's blog for full details).
7 staples & a few stitches later and we're back to end the day with a long-awaited BBQ.

Now, how's that for an exciting Holiday weekend?
