Friends, Food and More Friends and Food

I ended up having a fun night. Em's mom called me earlier and asked if I could hang out for an hour or so tonight. I started to tell her no, that I had to work almost non-stop the next 6 weeks to get some stuff accomplished and that I just couldn't, but she began to tell me the total suckage that was her week and I immediately recognized that this was a situation that could only be discussed over dessert and coffee.

I picked her up around 8pm and we went down to the beach. No one was there but us and it was really foggy, but the moon was big and low, which made the whole scene sort of surreal and peaceful looking. We walked for a long time and chatted until we realized we had walked pretty damn far and turned back.

We ended up having chips and guacamole at a Mexican restaurant that allegedly had a good banana dessert (they claimed not to have the banana dessert, or even a dessert menu, and giggled uncontrollably when we explained that we liked bananas) and once we realized there would be no banana dessert, we went to PF Changs for their banana dessert. But they suckered us in to some mini-dessert assortment thing, which was just meh. We should've stuck with the bananas.

It was a nice "thank you for being a friend" kind of night and I'm glad I made the time to go. It's nice to get away, if even for a few hours.

Anyway, I'm in a good mood so I went to and had it choose a number for the Michael Angelo's pasta winner and the winner is #9! The Preppy Peshke! So, if you are the Preppy Peshke, please email your name, address and naked photos to ashleysclosetblog at yahoo dot com.

Oh man, I was game for some free stuff. Would it be wrong if I were to cry and sob and tell you how I never win anything?

Sometimes when we really don't have the time to spend with a friend, but we cave in and do, it ends up being the best, most rewarding visit with that friend. It's hard to remember that when we're in the trenches, but taking a step away from our tasks, and allowing ourselves to have a little fun will often pay off in the long run. I'm glad you were able to get away and have some fun.
