There was no update yesterday for two reasons. First, I resent everyone who reads this site. I'm talking overwhelming resentment here, to the point where, if I find myself in a bar brawl, I swing the pool cue exclusively at known Goulash readers. Since there are only seven or so Goulash readers, it makes me really ineffective in those skirmishes. Second, Laura and I had to fancypants it up. We celebrated two years of neither one of us shooting or giving an STD to the other. Happy anniversary indeed!
In case you're in Austin and you're wondering where we went, we hit up Bellagio out on 2222. If you go there, order the Cheesey Bread appetizer. You may feel strange ordering something like Cheesey Bread in a fancy restaurant, but I'm telling you that it must be done. Also, I learned that I enjoy cannoli. I tried it several years ago and I wasn't a fan. I tried again last night and I realized that cannoli is Italy's answer to the Choco Taco. How do you hate that?
We Choco Taco'd, then we came back home and thus ended the night of romance. Well, it didn't really end. Romance with me isn't like a faucet that I can turn off; it's more like a coffee maker. It dribbles out a little at a time and you say to yourself, "That's disappointing." And then, an hour later, you look back and all of the dribbles have added up; you now have a steaming pot of romance. You take a drink and say, "Mmm, that's good. What is that, French Vanilla?" An analogy could also be made to a waffle iron, I think.
Movie recommendation: Everything Is Illuminated. I'm not an overwhelming fan of Jonathan Safron Foer's work, but the movie is excellent, especially Alex, the translator. It's funny, weird, and a little mysterious.Posted by Cody at September 21, 2006 11:10 PM
