Tonight I had dinner at L'Espalier in Boston with my family, for a graduation present.
It was a very, very nice present.
If you've never eaten there before, it's an incredibly fancy restaurant with very, very, very good food. And a very solicitous waitstaff. And most of them had French accents. And this made me happy.
Also, the maitre d' was unbelievably hot. And had a French accent. Thus, perfection.
Anywho, the food was superb, so it was a thoroughly enjoyable dinner. There was a cheese plate before dessert, and this was good. It was a sampler plate thing of cheeses... all sorts of cheeses. Goat, sheep, cow. They ranged from very mild to very sharp. Mmmm. Cheeses. I tend to be a cheese-enjoying sort of person, so this really sort of topped the evening.
They ask, when you go there, if you're going there for a special event, so my dad told them it was for my graduation. People kept on congratulating me all night long. The waiters did, the maitre d' guy did... even the valet congratulated me while we were waiting for the car after dinner. I get a kick out of that sort of thing.
Yes, so, good times at fancy restaurants.
I have found for you a fascinating little example of fun with video. Here it is. It is set to the song 'Gay Bar' by Electric Six (better known for their song 'Danger High Voltage'). The video is a highly wonderous little bit of editing. Whoever made it must have some crazy editing skills. Anywho, it came out quite well. And I can't believe how well the lyrics fit the animation, but it's a real song alright. Just check it out.
I just noticed that there haven't been any pictures, pirated or otherwise, on this here blog for a few posts. So I shall go into a little rant which will lend itself well to pictures.
Those of you who know me personally are undoubtedly aware of my prediliction for fedoras. The fedora is, quite simply, the best hat ever made. Some of you may know it better as the Dick Tracy/detective hat, or perhaps the Indiana Jones hat. Guys look attractive in fedoras. This is fact. Everyone looks good in a fedora. The fedora is cool, it is classy, it is 125% glorious. I am desperately waiting for the fedora to make a comeback. When it does, I will be a happy camper. It is one of my dearest wishes to find a hat store somewhere that sells fedoras, so that I can buy one. I am not a hat-wearing sort of person, but if I had a fedora, a real fedora, you can bet your last kitten that I would wear it.
yup. dick tracy wears a fedora.
I also just realized that I don't have a permanent link to Weebl and Bob on the side. I will fix that... erm, at some point. If you click on the link I just posted, you get sent to the Weebl and Bob posting board-like thing, which tells you when the new animations are up and running. I'll still try to post a link to each new animation as it comes up, but maybe you should check that out on occasion anyways, just in case I miss one.
Hey, I ain't infallible or nuthin'.
Quote of the evening--
My dad: How 'bout that, dear? You got cheese and you got the Turnpike! *maniacal laughter*
Eli: That coffee wasn't decaf.
