Lunch sessions back in session!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to your regular pizza joint...

Boo ya!
We're baaaack...


And this time a tad bit wee...

ok..

extremely more annoying than ever...

Empress and I were on hiatus due to her moving to another country..ahem..town...for work purposes...
But today as I sat at my desk pondering which blog to read...(my boss is outta town)...she gave me a call and asked if I wanted to have some lunch...

Of course I said yeah...


First Vid...




Translate:

Empress: "Hey..I did not know Doogie Howser was gay...I mean it was the just the other days I remmember him typing on his Huge computer...Hello I'm Doogie and today I saved a 12 year old girl who was in my class room...I'm a genius baby doctor"..

We also discuss how VH-1 has become our main source for world news...

followed by a long silence due to the fact we were giving VH-1 way to much publicity..

Empress: VH-1 doesn't pay for my effin' SUV..

The second lil' jewel came from a phone call we made regarding the title of a movie...the person on the other end told us, he couldn't think of the title quickly because he felt WE were pressuring him (WE..?? the nerve..) So we immediately asked him if he felt he was on Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the Puerto Rican version..





And the third jewel starts buy us whining that we lost the washer and dryer prize at the Who Wants to be a Millionaire contest...but then get a bigger surprise when we see that pets really do resemble their owners...

"They even have the same hair style and color!!!"





During our lunch outting we stopped by at a cool sneaker boutique where Empress was going to plunk down 100 a pop for some vintage sneaks...but resisted the temptation of the devil..and instead we took a pic of these cool sneaks made for coffee lover's galore..








At another 100 dollars-a-pop I'll take my chances buying a mocha-latte-fancy-coffee-name anyday, to indulge in my coffee obsession...

So after a lunch of pizza...watching gossip TV on the pizzeria's small screen and short giggle filled ride later..we were back to our work spaces...with our tummies full and our hearts joyous we could re-kindle our lunch routine...

No guys, two girls and pizza...
That's what I call the closing the year in style..

New 'girl' on the block

Hello! Gnightgirl told me that I ought to “scroll down to the betty post, do that, and then post it yourself”, but I’m going to have to wait to test that one out for you all. Instead, I thought would just say hi and reaffirm my dedication to the cause.

The heading promises “Some Women (curses, though I do have a boyfriend), Some Cameras (check), and Just One (yeah right) beverage. Shake. Serve with twist of venting (can do), crying (rarely but I’ll try), bitching (hell, yeah), and laughing-laughing-laughing (check check check). Men Welcome (Amen to that). Buy us all the drinks you want (and that too), but we still won't sleep with you. Probably."

Couldn’t have put it better myself.

Holiday Photos

Ok, we weren't really all together for this, but what's this blog for, if not to laugh at with your girlfriends?

I got an email and these photos from Zia, one or rotating dinner party girls. Aww, Zia and her kitties. Lovely:



Precious:



And, courageous, of her to send this one...

keep going.....

Happy trails


Today I took a friend to lunch. And while you might think that taking someone to lunch at Roy Roger's is a bit of a cheap-o thing to do, think again.

I'll back up a little. I'll call my friend Judi (and that's because her name is Judi). Judi's birthday was on November 19th. On November 27th, one of those big birthday lunches in her honor was to take place. I, unfortunately, had other plans. Plans that had been rescheduled quite a few times. So, I did not join the ladies for lunch at P.F. Chang's that day.

I did, however, upon receipt of the kind invitation, ask Judi if she would be my guest for lunch on another, mutally agreeable day. I would take her someplace special.

Well, if you know Judi, you know that she loves the Roy Roger's roast beef sandwich. I mean really a lot.

Did I mention that the closest Roy's is in Frederick, Maryland? That's 38 miles from here. And while some might balk at driving that far for lunch, it's in my blood. We used to drive hours and hours to have dinner every Sunday when I was a kid. So no, it was not an issue for me.

So, at 11:45 today, I picked her up and we headed west. Giddyup. By 12:30, we were ordering our Roast Beef meals -- actually, I got a new ham and roast beef sandwich they are pushing this month. She is not a ham fan, so she stuck with the traditional roast beef. I like the horseradish sauce and bbq sauce mixed on my RR sandwich. Judi? She takes it straight. No sauce at all. Everything was mighty good. Plus, did you know that Roy's has caffeine-free diet soda on tap? This is a big plus.

And now for the best news. There is a Fractured Prune opening in the same shopping center soon. So we'll be back! Happy Trails and Cheers!

Pizza & PJs

We'd considered canceling our Girlz Traveling Dinner Party this month, holiday obligations were enough. But at the last minute, we agreed that everyone has time to sit around in pajamas and nosh on pizza.

Pizza and PJjs it was then, on Tuesday night. We showed up at Zia's house, grabbed a beverage and proceeded to her comfy living room to decide which pizzas to buy.

Pizza Hut has a special: 3 medium pizzas for $15.

Hmm... 6 women. How many pizzas should we order for 6 of us?

Perfect!

Kaye and Marcy get right about cracking those pizza's open:


And we got right down to bidness. Here's Kim and Marcy digging in. Kim was comfy in sweats, and declared, "I forgot it was pajama night, this is just what I wore out." I'm going to have to follow her lead next time, I like the way that girl thinks.


No pix of me, except for this pink sock, to enhance this photo of Kristy and Kaye.


Here's a sock closeup. Aren't they cute? My mommy bought these for me.


Kristy kept us entertained with a tale of her being deathly ill in on her last business trip. She was so stopped up she resorted to spreading mentholatum on a hotel towel, and using the iron to create a menthol steam bath. Kristy is the Menthol MacGyver of all time.

Kaye, Kristy, & Zia

It was a beautiful, relaxing evening, curled up and comfy, talking tv and books, and playing with Zia's cats, until we were all feeling like this:


And we called it a night. Diane was in absentia tonight, so we declared her in charge of the next Girls dinner, won't she be surprised? Come on over to her place on January 22, y'hear?
