I have been bugging others to blog so I must be willing to follow my own nagging right?
We had Book Club last night.
This group of women is stellar!
So different and yet we come together so well. And have a good time doing it too.
A few things surprise me in relation to BC;
#1- A college town with a severe lack of places to go after 9 let alone 10 pm. C'mon people! We're *NOT* holding BC in Walmart- but evidently the town seems to think that's all that is needed.
#2- A bad IHOP. Really? Breakfast foods too difficult? Customer service.... what's that?
#3- I think it's fair to say that we should be assertive next time we go somewhere to INSIST on a fun waiter/waitress. We tip well. Especially when we're all together. Unless the service was crappy. I think most people would be happy to wait on our group at the end of a long shift. Usually what happens is the other waiters/waitresses notice how much fun we're having and are kind of intrigued. They'd get to know more if we were their table.. But alas. For some reason a group of 10 women frightens people and they stick us with the cranky servers.
After out disappointment with IHOP last night we headed out in search of dessert- because let's face it- we weren't done chatting. One place would have closed 15 minutes after we got there. We had been to this establishment previously for a book club meeting and THOUGHT they stayed open until 10. Oops. No wonder we had a great waiter there. He KNEW his time and effort would be well rewarded. They were even kind enough to NOT come clean up our side of the restaurant and kick us out. SO to Chili's it was. And oh so yummy. I should learn to just go out for dessert more often.
This months book (my choice) is CHICKENS IN THE HEADLIGHTS by Matthew Buckley. Hi.lar.i.ous. I loved it. I'm interested to see what everyone else thinks. But don't take my word for it.... check it out at your local library.
