I'm all alone just now. Joe has gone off to work and the kids (Kids. They are not kids. They are grown ass adults.) are off at the Renaissance Festival doing medieval shopping and show attending. Ergo, I am alone, save for the garden cats, who are yelling at me to give them some chow.
Shut it, garden cats. You have had plenty of chow already, and I will give some more when I am good and ready.
I took yesterday off because SonnyeBoy and his sweetie came up to spend a couple of days with us. We all went up to the National Aquarium in Baltimore and had a grand old time ogling the undersea and tropical rainforest creatures. We saw jellyfish, sharks, seahorses, dolphins, rockfish, stone fish, one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish. We saw Nemo and Dory, electic eels and manta rays, starfish and turtles, a chambered nautilus and a megalodon jaw fossil. We walked through the simulated rainforest and spotted a sloth and some fancy parrots, then shivered at the sight of the teeny tiny poison dart frogs.
Did you know that these lethal amphibians come in all sorts of colors and patterns? However, the deadliest of them all is plain white. It will kill you dead as a nit if you even touch it.
Then we went to an Irish bar and grill for a late lunch. Joe and I came home after that. The kids (!!) continued their adventure.
Yesterday evening I joined my group of high-school pals at a local pizza joint for dinner. As usual, we had a blast! The pizza joint messed up a few of our orders, but eventually (and after many inquiries and some nagging) all the food came out. I had only a salad, because I was still stuffed from lunch.
That was just as well, because when SonnyeBoy and his sweetie returned from their adventures, they brought a chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake (from Cheesecake Factory, no less) with them.
So much for watching my sugar intake! (Just that once, though. Honest. I'm serious!)
