New Year's Eve 2005


Cheese Fondue
Sesame-Crusted Tuna w/ Ponzu Dipping Sauce
Spinach Salad
Beef Wellington w/gorgonzola
Black and White Creme Brulee

Carl followed me into the kitchen on Saturday night when he arrived for dinner.

C: Am I going to read everything I said tonight, tomorrow?
K: Yes.
C: Uhhh.....that "Mommy Needs a Cocktail" picture?
K: Yeah?
C: Was...that....
K: All me.
C: Well I'll be shutting up right now and start by drinking a beer.

It's not that I have so much to say about New Year's. It's just that we met Matt out on Friday night to have drinks (doesn't everyone take a baby to happy hour?) with some chick he had picked up at a bar on Wednesday. I felt like a chaperone. And I am not a very good chaperone.

Matt's Friday date. Not to be confused with his NYE date that has been his on again, off again flava' for the past year. Who he intends to dump just after NY's. Who doesn't eat beef. She got the Chicken Wellington.

It was a relatively uneventful evening with friends. Derek managed to not let it slip that Matt was stepping out on Model Democrat Lawyer Girlfriend.

Matt: She's NOT my girlfriend.
K: If you are getting naked with her, she thinks you are her boyfriend.
Matt: Who said I was getting naked with her? (which he barely got out of his mouth without choking)
K: Whatever.

Makes me glad I'm already a married woman and I don't have to mess with the whole "dating scene"!!! ;)

That's hilarious. I loved what Carl said in relation to the t-shirt. Priceless!

Uneventful? Uneventful? Lady, that menu alone was an event unto itself...

...chicken wellington? I'm not sure I'd bother with a special menu request from someone who wasn't someone's girlfriend. You're really nice.

Ahhh...this is why hubby doesn't have my blog address! He knows I do it, but gives me privacy.

You are just too nice...

hmmm....she's his girlfriend....or at least I would think that... but who knows... I've been out of the dating scene for a long time.
