Birthday dinner: just a taste of things to come

No, we haven't had the Roo-girl's official birthday dinner. But on the evening of her actual natal day, we did have dinner -- just Wonderhubby, Z-man, Roo and me -- at the Italian restaurant that Z worked at for the last year.

It was just an appetizer, since the whole clan is gathering Sunday for the main course.

But that doesn't mean that we didn't have the usual fun times.

Evil Mother: So we met these two guys from Virginia ...

The Roo-girl: Is Virginia in the south?

Evil Mother: Uh, yeah. It is. In the south.

The Roo-girl: Then ... um ... why do they call it WEST Virginia?

*A moment of silence -- followed by hysterical laughter*

The Roo-girl: Oh ... I guess because it's west of Virginia.

Evil Mother: *unable to answer -- or breathe, for that matter*

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Wonderhubby: So when are we going to be able to watch the tape of "True Blood"?

Evil Mother: I have no idea ... not till Thursday or Friday night, probably. Although we COULD watch it early in the morning.

Z-man: I like to start my morning with a little "House."

Evil Mother: *drools slightly* Oooooh, I DO love "House." Hugh Laurie?? Yum!

Wonderhubby: House is such an ass, though.

Evil Mother: Yeah, I guess I just love those bad boys. And House is the best and baddest.

Z-man: *equally drooly* Oh yeah, me too. Love that Dr. House.

Evil Mother: *reaches over to high-five Z-man*

The Roo-girl: *shudders* AWKWARD!!!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

And just for the record, the restaurant's soup of the day -- cream of asparagus -- featured REAL asparagus.

Don't ask me how I know. I just do.

You're welcome.

Actually, Roo, they WERE going to call West Virginia "Kanawha", and they did, for a while, but that only lasted a month. West Virginia was once part of Virginia - but seceded from Virginia just as Virginia Seceded from the Union to join the Confederacy.

But you're in school, so you know all this, right?

I imagine that Roo will not forget that. At least I hope so.:)

And really, Hugh Laurie? For you I can understand, but Z-Man? I would think the other two gentlemen would be more preferable. :-)

I can only imagine how you know it was real asparagus... been there, done that. :)

Ah, Dr. House. It's all in the power of his character. He is not traditionally good-looking, but oh, my.

Asparagus in the soup? Delicious. I won't say any more.

Yum! Real asparagus in your soup must have been delicious!

Pamela said...

As opposed to unreal asparagus? hmmm...

Don't you ever listen? Hugh is MINE MINE MINE!!!!
