Just thinking about the dinner last night. Two things my father does every time we go to a restaurant is 1) ask us repeatedly if we are sure we just want water, what about a lemonade (this time I am glad he convinced me into Dubonnet) and 2) argues with the other patriarch (if there is one) that he should pay more of the bill. It's like family tradition now.
I am on my third coffee of the day so will probably be up all night, especially if I don't get exercise, which looks to be about the case now. I bought a new adapter over ebay for $1.25. If it works properly I will be deeply impressed.
