MY DAILY CALENDAR…DAY 247 – SEPTEMBER 5, 2013
MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR THURSDAY, DAY 247 OF 2013: Well, today happens to be my birthday. And according to my most recent calculations, I do believe it is number 41 in light years. I can’t guarantee that though, since you all know that math was never my favorite subject.
As to birthday’s … It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair…but I survived. AGAIN!Anyway, Mr. Bill, my oldest friend took me to lunch today at the Panorama Restaurant in the new addition building of the Saint Louis Art Museum. You could say, we lunched with all the ladies of a certain age who lunch and wear hats. Lunch was most elegant, and I had my first amuse bouche ever. (It was a quarter of a radish in a smear of tarragon aeolis sprinkled with dried bread crumbs.)
Mr. Bill really knows how to do a birthday lunch, and after we finished our curried chicken salad sandwiches and green salads (which were to die for) he ordered up a birthday dessert of apple and walnut bread pudding (with a white chocolate birthday card). It was fantastic. I’m not sure, but I think something written in gold Sanskrit lettering can be seen in the red beet coulis. The lunch really was first-rate, and my host was most generous. Thankfully, we were not as old as most of the ladies who were dining around us. The Panorama Restaurant was a very fine dining experience. Advance reservations are highly recommended.
THERE WAS THIS ORIGAMI CHALLENGE FOR THE DAY:But I decided to exercise my birthday option of being able to skip doing an origami fold involving making a little paper box that will never serve mankind in any possible way. Please note, that I was unable to actually post this post on my birthday, because I wasted too much time trying to put that dumb box together.
