finally came to his senses and decided not to run over to my house
today....instead Ashlyn and I picked him up and we went to lunch at
Elephant Bar. The first time I went to Elephant Bar was in '96 with
Bett, Ivy, and Cin in Santa Barbara. I thought it was the coolest
restaurant (with it's jungle theme, grand faux elephant tusks, and
revolving woven fans on the ceilings). I had such fond memories of
the restaurant. Nowadays, it's just...eh, aiight.
was pretty good. I had the BLT combo with a garden salad, Wing had
the Cajun pot-roast, and we shared a Soy-Ginger Calamari appetizer.
The prices were very reasonable too. After lunch, we ran some errands,
walked around, then headed back home.
Tonight was "build-your-own pizza" nite. Emily and I made a pepperoni pizza with fresh tomatoes, onions, spinach, and a whole lotta mushrooms and cheese. Wing got creative and made a chicken pesto pizza with fresh basil, peppers, mushrooms, and lotsa cheese too! Though we bought thin-crust boboli, Wing's pizza looked super thick!...like a deep dish! HAHAHA! Dinner was yummy!
sat around the table, ate fruit, and talked. I was burning this thick
candle (that I've had for like, evers, now)...it's vanilla scented
with tiny twigs and rose petals inside. That thing kept burning itself
out because the wax had nowhere to go. It was kind of a waste since
there was still much candle left. I thought I was being clever by
drilling a tiny hole for the wax to drip out. Five minutes later,
I looked over and the flame was pratically jumping out of the candle!
That thing was burning FAST and WILD! Candle wax ran over the edge
of the holder and wax was spilling onto the dining table. =O *Zoiks!*
and Wing left around 9pm. Ashlyn and I watched "Prime Time's
Whitney Houston interview". Then I put Ashlyn down to bed and
jumped in the shower. Aric got home from school around 10:30. He's
been so busy with school and work lately...I don't think I've eaten
a single meal with him in the past three days! *sigh* I miss him.
