Dinner at Chez Panisse, an introspective life
Without fail, every single year I get yet another year older. Nothing I can do about that. But it is a whole lot easier to face yet another birthday when there is a really big reason to look forward to it. So every year I save up my money and go off to Chez Panisse for my birthday and then I can always look forward to that. Except that this year I got my OpenTable reservations all screwed up and we had to eat in the cafe upstairs instead in the more glamorous downstairs seating.
And it wouldn't even matter to me that America is being sucked into a financial Black Hole. http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article42280.htm
But all this does matter to me. Greatly.
Too bad it doesn't seem to matter to anyone else.
But next year I plan to get my Chez Panisse reservations all carefully straightened out early so that I can eat roast lamb instead of Chef Boyardee.
If there is a next year, that is.
