18,008 very loosely connected words.  Sigh.

On the bright side, however, I am looking forward to a romantic candlelight dinner tonight! At least I hope there will be candlelight! These new-fangled popular restaurants seem to have missed the memo on what makes a pleasant place for discriminating diners. Candlelight is a must. Also generous portions.

I just realized that the restaurant I we have chosen calls itself a "bistro".  Darn it,  if I  we had known that before now, I  we would never have chosen it!  "Bistro" is the kiss of death to any really enjoyable dining experience.  Tiny portions of much- too- saucy food, artfully displayed on huge plates is all very well, visually.  But I want to know how these people expect a restaurant patron to fill up on 3/4 of an ounce of food?

We will see how this goes today.  I am nothing if not open-minded,  but the signs are not promising!

Another pic for your viewing pleasure (as you can probably tell from this picture, Scott and I both obviously patronized far too many bistros back in our salad days (and, incidentally, probably filled up on too much salad, too, judging by our emaciated appearance!).  Quick! Someone get those kids a decent meat and potatoes meal!
