granny smith green drinks in, grasshopper green drinks out

2003-03-21 - 9:44 a.m.

Thursday was a lazy day. D. and I watched two DVDs, Blood Work and Cast Away. Although it's a popular theme, I have to ask myself if there has ever been a criminal mastermind in the history of the world who actually desired a so-called worthy foe. If I was a criminal mastermind, I would look for weaknesses to be exploited and leave the worthy foes to the poor fools who didn't have enough to do.

We had dinner at 124, where I sampled an apple martini since this drink seems to be so popular around the internet. The one I had was called Apple Jolly Rancher, and it had the eponymous candy as well as a slice of a Granny Smith apple in it. Really much too sweet for me, to be honest. I had a terrific grilled shrimp with some sort of pecan-crusted grits tower. I thought they were calling grits polenta now, but the 124 menu just called it grits. Either way, it was delicious. I wore the crocodile low rider pants.

We walked on the lakefront afterwards. The wind was whipping up, and it was pleasantly cool. At first, it was cloudy, and we could only see a couple of planets, but after a few minutes, the wind blew away and we could see actual stars. D. thought the Pleiades is the Little Dipper. A lot of people do. Most people would no longer be able to find North on a clear night, because most people no longer recognize the Dippers and hence wouldn't be able to find the Pole Star.

Hummingbird Report: As I write on Friday morning, two male R-Ts were disputing possession of the near feeder.
