There's no smoke without fire!

And fire there was! Went out to dinner on Wenesday night with some of my friends, or should I say, ahem, internet friends!

Started off with Chilli Cheese Fries, these are very very wonderful. I just wish they came in a bigger serve. Followed up by Chimichanga (Mexican according to the menu) - now this was shredded beef grilled with spices and onions and put into a tortilla with cheese, rolled up and deep fried. Fabulous! Only downside, there was most likely half a cow in it, talk about huge!

And of course it was all topped off with a Muddy Creme Brulee and a very divine cappacino, which traditonally you wouldn't see in Italy after mid-morning as it's considered a breakfast drink. Also a word to the wise whan ordering coffee in Italy, if you ask for a latte, you will most likely get milk, you need to make clear you want a cafe latte, ie coffee with milk!

Ended the evening with a bit of tasseled bag twirling, and, ahem, panhandling....

It's been way too hot, no knitting, except Wednesday I did work on the Whitewater Wristwarmer, the thumb is now progressing nicely. If only it were less hot!

Not much else has happened, my expression of interest form has gone in for the upcoming courses. I saw the dates advertised in the paper for the classes themselves but none for the info session dates as yet.

What else? Nothing else I don't think for the moment. Oh excpet a little something for the not feint of heart....fire tassel twirling???

I am going to make myself one of those 'changy' things.

It is hard to knit in this weather isn't it? I find it cooler sitting on the floor, but since my posture is appalling I can only do that for so long before my back kills!! Your food sounds so yumlicious! Where did you go??

Sounds delicious!!

It has been hot, but it seems to be cooling off a bit. Are the wristwarmers for winter?
