"World Cup Special" -
Falafel Wrap

Art @ Large
Casa del Toro anonymous red (Chilean)

Book launch party at my boss's apartment
Quite crunchy garlic toast and/or softer though still crusty bread with:
-lightly veined English cheddar cheese
-mustard platter
-white bean spread - (this was the best one)
-tomato based bruschetta topping
-zucchini based bruschetta topping
-salami (? or some kind of nicer dried sausage whose name I do not know because I am coarse, a coarse poor walking around a party like he owned the place)
Real Life Rosé - the wine marketed by my boss's friend who is the lady about whom the party was - four cups
Orzo salad with 360 evoo, feta, parsley, tiny little miniaturized currants so itsy-bitsy you'll giggle, pepper - there were also cornichons, but I did not get them. Why? I was so helpful and kind, holding out the bowls for everyone around me to serve themselves, and nobody gave me the minced cornichons! FYI, the orzo salad was part of a fun "cookalong" exercise where we blended our own salad. It was pretty fun, except we didn't so much cook as physically mix food. I'm not five any more, lady, don't tell me I'm cooking when I'm stirring currants into orzo with a plastic fork in a disposable plastic cocktail cup.

Blue & Gold
What? What is this Blue & Gold place anyways?
Four Blue & Gold lager
Many Pommes Frites frites courtesy of FAKwang with a selection of especial, classic frites sauce, peanut satay, wasabi mayo (I ate it all!), and honey mustard

I had a fun time, and realized that I was getting so sleepy that I should just doodle on home and have a nice night's sleep! Approaching B on 10th, Conrad called me, and my excellent plan had to be revised.

Trivia fact: Conrad's "impromptu party" (as he put it) involved a certain amount of him wearing a wife-beater (Italian dinner jacket) and his boxers while watching Harvard Man. Which, to be honest, is what a party is, last time I checked. Also in attendance were perennial FoodNemesis Harvey and two college humor magazine kids whose names I don't know. One was the big scary smiley kid who always wears the shorts and who looks like a giant Canadian eight year old, and the other was the kid with the nutty Lienert hair and the nerd glasses who does weird things and used to wear Vans all the time. Who are those kids?

Does the Harvard Man ever regain his wits? The ending would suggest not.

In defense of my impromptu party:

a) We also listened to that album of different wolf calls.

b) There were also some friends of Dubs's girlfriend who seemed unimpressed when I told them "we do this all the time."

I did have fun and was glad to have come, I just want everyone to understand that you were watching HARVARD MAN. Also, I was too drunk to concentrate properly on wolf calls.

Also, it's funny that Cane has a fairly nice record player sitting on his desk, usually not connected to anything.

Cane, do you have records? I'm confused!
