I am SO full. We got out with daylight to spare today (and the rain held off for the evening), so we decided to head to Ghirardelli Square and the surrounding areas while we could still see some stuff. We made definite dessert plans (hello, hot fudge sundae at the Ghirardelli Ice Cream Shop) and just needed to find a place for dinner. Again. We headed for the water (less than a block away) and walked along Jefferson Street and eventually (okay, it didn’t take that long – there were signs) figured out we were at Fisherman’s Wharf. So naturally, we had seafood. We basically picked a restaurant at random and ended up at Tarantino’s, which was very good. We were early (6-ish, maybe a little before), so there was no wait, and we got a table overlooking the boats in the marina. I had prawns and scallops sauteed in all the delicious stuff (wine, garlic, butter, etc) with vegetables and rice. SO good. I called Mom and Dad during our walk back to Ghirardelli Square (and listened to the everyday drama of finding the other phone so they can both be on the line (I know I make fun of you, but I love that you do it that way. I just wish you’d have the phone handy!)), but was, you know, forced to hang up on them because the banana hot fudge sundae was twisting my arm and marching me through the door. Man, that was good. But huge. And I couldn’t finish it. Madeline couldn’t finish hers, either. She got the one with peanut butter topping AND hot fudge – they brought her three spoons. Hm. Maybe she could have finished it if she’d used all three.
I did well today, in class. If I may say so myself. No major screwups, no belligerent students (unlike yesterday, but I didn’t have to deal with them. Myrtle did.), and when I misspoke (happened a couple of times), Mona was there to rescue me. I wasn’t nervous at all, though, so that’s pretty cool. 🙂 I don’t think tomorrow will be much different. Hope I didn’t just jinx myself.
