The Condemned Woman Has Been Granted A Reprieve
Or, "How to fix it so you don't have to go to dinner with your family". (Hey, not everybody can have a family love fest like CAP!)
Thanks, everybody, for your suggestions. The Newsroom sounds like something I would like to do WITHOUT the crazy Donors, so I could enjoy myself! Some other places I was considering were ammo cafe, citizen smith, hollywoodandvine, eat on Sunset, and social hollywood (based on the Strip atmosphere and $$$ ratings), as well as La Boheme, The Terrace (at Sunset Tower), Republic LA and Asia de Cuba (for just the $$$ factor).
HOWEVER, The Donors could not cope when I told them the Unca would be joining us, and used some flimsy excuses (oh, WMG's got too much going on, there's the Marathon going on, Kev says there's no where we could get reserves for Saturday... Blah, blah, blah) to beg off until they come through again in May. Sperm Donor said, "I'm sure the boys can be a little flexible", to which I replied, "Well, they've waited YEARS, they can wait a few more months." HAH. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
So we're probably still going out to dinner on Saturday, just us and Unca Douggles, and probably to one of the Culver City haunts I've been wanting to check out (Ford's Filling Station, maybe?)
But there's one thing that strikes a chord of fear in my heart for tomorrow: "Sale at The Little Knittery - This SATURDAY ONLY I will be putting every ball of yarn in here on sale. 20 to 75% off all yarns!" I've never been to the Little Knittery, and I think I may be up at the crack of dawn (or at least by noon) to go tomorrow!!!
