I've been going out with Lorna, my lovely girlfriend and blog-encourager, for over 9 months. I'd like to declare some of tonight as a date. Why not? I'm allowed to take my girlfriend out on a date, even if the reality was a little less than a pre-ordained anticipated entire evening of laid-on-entertainment. I'd ended up working late, which was not expected. I drove to Cheltenham where I now spend a fair amount of my time. We could have stayed in and made a stir-fry, but we pondered whether going out was an option. It wasn't... until I imposed some conditions on it... and the stir-fry turned out to be some ingredients short - apparently stuff goes off if you leave it in the fridge but too much time passes... so we decided to try going out with my conditions:
- It's a date
- I'm allowed to have a beer
- And risotto
- and a cappuccino
I'm quite reasonable in my demands.
Sadly, the late-night DVD watching was somewhat squished by a slightly clicky DVD player and the fact that my trip to the room with the most plumbing, turned into a session of writing some ASP on my laptop to enable a rather simplistic website to come into existence. I like to multi-task.
It was still a date. And a nice night in with a temporary night out in it.
