        I know, right! He totally should have told me he was going to be in town. However, after seeing his taste in 'entertainment' I will not be inviting him over for dinner.

        I'm fairly certain the NIH did not approve this one. I'm also certain the CDC and PETA would be outraged as well.

    Hello everyone!

    I just found out that the informal fitness group does almost weekly salad day lunches (someone goes shopping, gets pre-washed/chopped/packaged ingredients, and we line up to the salad bar in a conference room). I surprised people by donating my pomegranate from CA... some people hadn't had fresh pomegranate seeds before! And I still have about 3/4 of a cup of seeds left (it was a huge pomegranate).

    So, lunch was salad greens, tomatoes, raspberries, crumbled soft goat cheese, pomegranate seeds, a touch of dressing. NOM.

        It went pretty well. Went out to dinner at Olive Garden and had some baked pasta with beef. He came away with a few DVDs and a set of dominoes.

        But now that that particular day is over, I'm looking forward to Monday. Should be fun~

        So you like public, bare-bu tt sp@nkings? I'm ok with that if you are, Birthday Boy.

        If you prefer the whip, I recommend booking time in the dungeon. There's more air space there and I can lock the door .... to keep anyone from entering unexpectedly. Wouldn't want to POP anyone who's not ready for it ... well not like that anyway. ~_~
