Meetings and greetings

I had a really nice time in the city yesterday with manoosha and aninnocent. Unfortunately, sunni26 was unable to join us, as she was feeling a bit under the weather, having just returned earlier that afternoon from Out West; fortunately, her delightful roommate was able to join us for a few hours of chit-chat over fries, jalepeño poppers, and $2.50 Amstel Lights.

After we'd had our fill at the bar, manoosha and I headed over to the Century Centre Cinema to see Adaptation. Which was an exceedingly strange movie. I liked it, and the conceit underlying it is both clever and cleverly executed, but boy was it odd.

We decided to get a bite to eat after the movie, and on our way to one of manoosha's favorite Thai restaurants, I spied a Lou Malnatti's on the corner of Sheffield and Lincoln. "You know," I said to myself, "you can't get good Chicago-style pizza in DC." Turning to manoosha, I informed him that we were eating at Lou's.

"Damn it," he said with a crazed look in his eyes, "I want Thai!"

"Well, I'm driving, and I say we're stopping here!"

He pulled a gun and screamed, "over my dead body!" Luckily, he regained his senses after a brief but tense chase scene through Jonquil Park, and we enjoyed a fine meal of deep dish pizza with pepperoni and mushrooms. Mighty tasty.
