Happy Feet

We had another nice slow start today. (I *love* vacation!) And today, elsaf made us French toast - yay! (I love French toast even more than pancakes, and that's saying something.) And more sausage to eat with syrup. judiang, as usual. was the last one up.

Much of the afternoon was spent geeking and waiting around to find out when the National Day of Mourning will be. This has no bearing on me or Elsa, but Judi is a Fed and thus it is of great importance to her. And now we know - her day off will be Tuesday. Perhaps she will rant about the irony of that date in her LJ. Perhaps not.

Elsa made us roast beast sammiches for lunch. She and I had earlier walked to her local bakery to get some bread. It was pumpernickle rye, which Judi and I turned down for our sandwiches. What can we say, we're White Bread Girls. ;-) The sandwich was great, and we had it with Royal Riviera pears from Harry and Davids. It was the best pear I have ever had - so juicy and succulant. Thanks to Elsa's mum for getting a Harry & David set o' items for us.

Judi decided that she needed to go to Best Buy again, this time to get stuff for herself. So we stopped there on our way to our Holiday Movie. She picked up two mice, because one mouse just isn't enough... (Actually, she needed a wired mouse for her laptop and decided to get a wired mouse for her PC for when her wireless one gives her grief and I pick on her to "get a real mouse.")

Our pick for Holiday Movie was Happy Feet. The only trailer we saw that was anything good was Harry Potter 5. And the movie? So cute! And such a great rythm. I had happy feet while I watched it. Penguins are of the cute! Go penguins!

We finished our fun evening out by having supper at La Shish. We ate at one of the restaurants last year and Judi wanted to go again this year. They make very yummy Middle Eastern food. The girls got the shish combo for two and I got the garlic & almond ghallaba. Judi and I also got smoothies - her a papaya and me a mango. I'd gotten the ghallaba last year and enjoyed it enough to order again this year. Maybe someday I'll get a shish kabob. :-)

Our evening was cut short by poor Elsa getting a bloody nose (she got one yesterday at breakfast too, poor dear). She had me drive home and I did so quite safely cuz I'm a good driver. Despite what other people say...

When we got back, we watched The Ruby in the Smoke and ate ice cream. I had Been & Jerry's chocolate fudge brownie while the girls had B&J's Cookie Dough ice cream. Good eats and good show. Now we're watching last week's Torchwood and I'm writing this.

Tomorrow, our threesome breaks up when Judi and I head on back to Ohio to continue my Christmas celebration. And shortly my birthday celebration. Yay for celebration! Yay for presents!
