Where Did You Sleep Go Last Night?

Last night worlds collided and the rift between the virtual and real space-time continuums was temporarily bridged. By this, I mean we had dinner with Mr. and Mrs. Amalah.

After a stop-over at the Amalah pad, we ventured to a new Indian (Delhi, not wigwam) place in DC named Nirvana. It was casual, as advertised - you could pretty much come as you are. While there was no lounge act, there was some funky music featuring what sounded like someone squeezing a cat. And the owner? He came off as a pretty negative creep. Luckily, the place was empty - everyone must have been on a plain - so we could laugh as loud as we wanted without being a downer. My verdict on the restaurant - stay away. Mexican seafood and pennyroyal tea might have been better options.

I'm sure Jason will post a more thorough and well-informed review of the restaurant...most likely without the need to throw in as many Nirvana song titles as he can come up with off the top of his head.

Now? Beth and I are steam-cleaning the carpets. We sure know how to live it up!

So, now that the word is out on the street and we know where Beth's blog is--- you've got some serious competition-- already I'm thinking I'm always gonna listen to her side of the story first-- hah. And, when you were chez Amalah-- did you trip over the old couch that's just there sitting in the way a-la Dick Van Dyke?

***(Delhi, not wigwam)*** LOL! I bamboozled my culinarily-challenged grandparents into joining us at an Indian Restaurant in Annapolis, (India's..by the way is highly reccommended) for my birthday. My grandmother could not imagine what kind of food would be served at, what she imagined to be, a restaurant run by Native Americans..thus her less-than-PC description "Oh, you mean Indain Dot not Feather!"

The Nirvana references were quite clever, although with the title, you could also throw in that pop song that goes "Where do you where do you where do you gooooooooooooo!?" ...

Or maybe not. It's too damn early up in here. I'm going back to bed.
