rating: &&&.6/&&&&&
listening to: julia and angus stone
comments: erin joined us for lunch today. which was good and bad. bad because somehow she lost her wallet between the car and the door of the restaurant. we didn't notice until after lunch. I think it's long gone now. but if you see it, please return it! I also tried a different flavour of calzone. one with chicken. it wasn't nearly as good as the ones I usually try. it's like the day was just a bit off. I blame the crappy cold, wet weather.

and erin had:

a calzone too
comments: I'm not even gonna post bill's lunch today. that's how off things are. plus, I just don't have enough wigglies to link to. both wigglies today are from a window display at 3rd and main. this one is weird, cuz I kept getting the all green cycle of the fluorescent lights. that's all. maybe tomorrow will be better.

comments: remember those kitties from yesterday's posts? well, you can click bill's lunch to see pixie again. adorable. wanna see her fierce look? check it out. oh yeah, I didn't mention it, but these kitties never warmed up to poor Hemi. this was as close as they got to him. even with delicious tuna sashimi being offered, pixie wouldn't get closer. and Hemi was quite the gentleman, not moving any closer.
