Small talk and free cake

I am still in Hell at work on "the-project-that-must-not-be-named", so I hope that settles down to normal craziness from white-knuckled frenzy in the next week or so.

For my birthday we went to Waterloo Records at 5 for Eric Johnson's CD signing. Eric and Chris (Maresh) were really very friendly to me. Eric gave me a compliment on my haircut (that was really nice of him to notice!), we talked about my birthday, his new beard, Gunsmoke's Matt Dillon, The Greencards (I gave him their CD for his belated birthday) and my friend's pics of him that I hope she has ready to show him by this Saturday's show. Completely forgot to tell him how much I like Bloom or that I heard him on NPR and KUT. Oh well... my train of thought jumps the tracks again. I'm sure that one of the other couple hundred people in line mentioned Bloom to him... the reason we were there. Duh.

Later we went to Macaroni Grill and got almost too stuffed to walk on pasta, bread, wine, and chocolate cake. Saying I felt like a pig would be insulting to the pig. I did NOT get on the scale this morning and am still wearing the fat clothes. The dinner menu tonight will be boiled cabbage with water to drink.

Boiled cabbage and water? Sounds delicious! I totally went off my diet for my birthday last weekend and gained three pounds in the process. I love Macaroni Grill!

Normally I don't go for the chain restaurants, and this one doesn't have a whole lot of veggie offerings, but you gotta love that bread, olive oil and water goblet-sized wine. We were wistfully reminiscing about the days when we used to eat lots of stuff like that, plus the cheese... yummm... and then we remembered that we used to weigh a lot more... heh heh...
