I worked. Jim was off. Afterwards we went over to Carl & Tim’s for dinner. Salad, angel hair pasta, and garlic bread. Mmmmm. The sauce was a little too sweet for my taste. Tim agreed. It was no disrespect to Tim, after all, it was Trader Joe’s brand sauce, not his own.
I think Tim planned this particular menu because of my jabs at him. When they moved here and began unpacking boxes, I was surprised at some of the gadgets he brought. A garlic press. A large stand-up electric can opener. A parmesan cheese grater. He had it all. Useful or not, he seemed to have packed it. Tonight he made use of his press. He also made use of some linens. I was shocked that he apparently brought linens too. What a nut!
After dinner we went to the NC Music Factory. It’s an entertainment complex of sorts housing several bars and restaurants. Last weekend when Jim, Carl and Tim went to a Gay Pride event, they purchased haunted house tickets. Tonight we walked though it and it was mildly entertaining. I think it was more fun having a frozen drink at Wet Willie’s and watching the haunted house characters run after people with chainsaws and the like.
After “being frightened” we went to Crave for desserts. They had a wait so we decided to try another time when armed with reservations. We went to Cold Stone instead for dessert.
I do love me some ice cream…
