no appetite?

Sunday, April 30th, 2006

I haven’t had much appetite of late. Couldn’t even figure out what I wanted to eat because nothing seemed particularly appealing. But this afternoon I thought something chocolaty might be nice.

Nope, that wasn’t what I wanted either. I’m not all that thrilled with the recipe… Next time I’m going to make a few adjustments of my own. I sent Jeremy next door with half of the cake (frosted with cream cheese frosting) and a loaf of chocolate chip banana bread to Tom and Kellie who were about to step into their hottub. Tom called me just as Jeremy rang their doorbell and we had a four-way conversation via phone, on their doorstep, and from our deck (because Jeremy said he could hear me from their house). Tom told us Full Moon Grill’s OTHER manager called him, got his card back, gave him a full refund, gave him a certificate, and profuse apologies plus a signed letter from the first manager. Glad to hear someone there understands business.

dining out for life

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

Tonight we met with Tom, Kellie, Bondy, and Madge for dinner at Full Moon Grill. We picked tonight because it is Dining Out for Life night. Several hundred restaurants in the Denver-Boulder area participated this evening by sponsoring this event for Project Angel Heart. The restaurants pledged that 25% of their food bills today would go to support Project Angel Heart which provides healthy meals to men, women, and children living with AIDS/HIV, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses. The food was great as usual (although Jeremy’s lobster gnocchi appetizer was a tad salty). Everyone loved their food and we had a great time catching up on Ned politics, gross-out stories from Madge’s medical training, gross-out stories of mercy killing furry dying animals, and arguing over who exactly is considered a gen-Xer.
