New restaurant, quiet evening

I left work worn out with my lack of sleep but still dragged myself to Pilates (and a yummy visit to the hot tub beforehand). Left in a good mood and found shadowdaddy waiting for me outside, because the crappy-assed class schedule at Freehold had him locked out of the theater until 8. Boo for them, yay for me! We went to Roti in Lower Queen Anne and had a right nice little dinner, lamb something (with cashews) with appetizers (we split it because the launch party had left him rather full), and even had time to pick up some groceries before he dropped me off at home and went to rehearsal.

Now I'm home and Ijust finished reading Harry Dresden ("Wizard Detective") novel number 2, Fool Moon. This series has become amazingly popular, with my boss waiting for book 4 and varina8 backed up for #2 (you, madame, are in luck). I lent tonyawinter #1 (given to me by lilithmagna), so I suspect she'll be joining the line soon - this series is too hot to keep down. Next will probably be shadowdaddy's Deep Survival book (about the evolutionary features that determine how we handle situational extremes, the kind where our choices can result in death) or the delightfully trashy looking Marilyn Manson bio spikeylady lent me. Meanwhile, Mr. Beans is waiting for me to bring my Broken Angels to the office so he can polish it off. But ... just think, it's only February (*checks*) seventh and I've been getting through a book a week! This is great!

Er, yes, and now that I've wasted as much time as possible, I'm now going to get on with making enchiladas for my brother's birthday dinner tomorrow. Frying, ho!

Hint, hint!
Perhaps at the NWFF at 7 on Sunday?

Re: Hint, hint!
Hm, would that be for the Harry Smith film or Breakfast at Tiffany's?

Any interest in a matinee of Match Point? Or Munich?

Re: Hint, hint!
Matinees are out due to visiting relatives, Munich is out due to, er, anticipated depression caused by subject of film. I may angle to see Good Night and Good Luck at long last, or maybe Duck Soup (at the Grand Illusion).

Not seeing a match here. Maybe we should just go for beer, coffee or dessert?

Re: Hint, hint!
Actually, I'm interested in Matchpoint (after reading the NYT article about it - had forgotted its title), but I just can't make a matinee. You busy in the evening?

Re: Hint, hint!
Bleah, my cold is bugging me, so I think your suggestion to reschedule might be a good one.

My lungs thank you. Let's see how we both feel later this week.

I am working through the harry Dresden series now. They are tosh - but very easy to read! I much prefer Laurell K Hamilton though - do you read her? Lili described the sex in her books as "florid and overblown" but where's the downside to that? :)

Well, to clue you in to my thought processes, I am now finding out just who Laurell Hamilton is, presumably as a preface to buying some of her books. :-)
