OK, so it’s been a week since I blogged. Kitten is doing well. I can’t believe it, but he’s gotten noticeably bigger in just a week! Such a miraculous thing, watching him grow. We have so much fun playing with him, and tossing him around. Mei Mei is still thoroughly annoyed.
We had a small breakthrough last night. Abner went up to her while she was laying on the floor on her back, and there was some calm sniffing. She didn’t growl or hiss, or get up and run away. When she runs, he chases. I know it’s all a big game to him. But, she’s become more curious about him, so it’s a step forward. We’re still not quote to a time where we can leave them alone together unsupervised.
Went to a new place for lunch today (as in, totally new to town as of this month, new): Petra. It’s a greek/mediterranean place, which is wierd cause we already have a perfectly good greek restaurant, but I digress. (It’s called Volta Taverna, and I love it.) Going to a new restaurant here is always an adventure. Some places that I have tried when they were new took forever even though we were the only people there. I can’t think of the names of any of these restaurants in question, cause they’re probably closed now.
So, Petra… excellent service, clean, upscale decor, very good food. They have the usual: hummus, felafel, gyros, etc. They also have kebabs and such. I got a salad with chicken shawarma on top. There was an amazing seasoning and herbs tossed with it. SO good. The bad news: my freakin salad, smaller than a salad from Sonic, was 9.95! This thing was 1/3 the size of a main dish salad I can get at any casual dining place. If my co-worker, Kris, who went with me, hadn’t ordered a hummus and pita appetizer and shared it with me I would still totally be hungry. Again, the taste was amazing, but if I want a gyro I will be going to Volta.
Verdict, Petra: gooooood food, bad value. Best of luck, you might need it.
Which leads me to the list of restaurants I wish we had here:
an Irish pub
an Indian restaurant with a buffet
a cajun restaurant
Listening to: Scotch and Chocolate by Nickel Creek
(Sounds like a dessert idea, doesn’t it?)
