Upon hearing of the liquid-filled, plastic sages decision, Ilmostro put forth the cry across all of Memphis. "Hear ye! Hear ye! DataDaddy cometh to Memphis, let there be merriment, food, and spirits!" komet, Scumshine, and DR950 were in Linzi, Ilmostro, and I climb into the toaster and head on over to Boscos, a brewpub, dinner-style joint... We hung in the bar waiting for folks to arrive and for a table. komet did a drive by visit. I think he was working that night. The pager went off and they moved us from the bar into the general dining populace Appetizers were ordered and the pints were topped off... We were on our best behavior "I say ol' chap, what shall we eat this fine evening?" Our waiter noticed me taking the over the shoulder pictures and offered to take some pictures of the whole group... sucker!!! We all posed up in our best AdvPortrait mode... CHEEZZEE Left to Right: DataDaddy, Scumshine, Linzi, Ilmostro, DC950 The waiter was laughing at this point and so were we. I figured that we should get a good serious shot... "Hey, go ahead a take another one " A serious AdvPortrait Left to Right: Same disorder as above Much better... Our waiter "Boscos" was a good guy... and a great sport. Dinner was ordered and we all settled down to enjoy the evening in the fine dining establishment... You can tell the good places... They don't have much gum under the table... Left to Right: Linzi, Ilmostro, DC950 Dinner arrives and the table gets quiet. I had a seared tuna roll that was breaded and fried :huh Saw it on the menu and knew it must be tried (actually, I didn't notice the whole "breaded and fried" part ) Very, very good... Add one more item to the Great Southern List of Stuff You Can Fry ...like I said, thing quieted right down when dinner arrived of course there was the whole "exploding Martini glass" deal. Linzi has those pictures... Linzi enjoys her dessert It was a great evening and I had fun meeting everyone. You know how there are certain events that are soooo great that people are motivated to get tattoos? Well, this didn't quite reach that level, so Ilmostro suggested something a little less permanent... I don't think so Dave.... I think my body hair may have been the critical factor in keeping me from freezing on the way up... You go ahead... Now, before folks start in about a wasted evening and such... nothing of value accomplished... yada yada yada... It was proved that night that a camera flash can distract a driver... resulting in scared passengers... you can see that Linzi is bordering on hysterics... It was almost Christmas, so that means... Lights and malls... Stay tuned. Next episode, we'll go to the mall and dork around just long enough so I can ride home in the dark!
