Three new things.

Happy Valentine’s Day! The Snook and I celebrated with a night on the town. I did three new things that I’d never done before:

  • I ate a raw oyster! Seriously! With just a bit of lime juice! And I didn’t die.
  • I went to Star City, which is my first casino visit ever. It was insane. We didn’t bet anything.
  • We took the light rail home. Not exciting, but still a first for me.

What did you do?

  1. Ha! I’m going on a blind date set up by one of my patients. For 6 years I’ve had parents trying to set me up w/ their awkward sons, and Wednesday I folded. Oi. I’ll have to let you know how it goes. Everyone, cross your fingers for me.

  2. Oh wow! Good luck, cous.

    Dan and I are headed to Six Flags Magic Mountain to wait in lines all day! We had originally planned to go to the Happiest Place on Earth, but luckily I checked the website and saw that all the GOOD rides are closed for refurbishing! Whew. We’ll see how MM compares to CP…

    And that’s about it. We went to a hole-in-the-wall Mexican place last night where I had a bite of the hottest salsa on this planet, and the owner put in a video of his championship ballroom-dancing son for us to watch! It was quite romantic. 🙂

  3. It was pretty good! In fact, it was exactly as Pa Snook had described it: “creamy, and like the ocean.” I thought that meant fishy but instead it was more like sea water.

  4. My dad grows them in Virginia, so I eat them every time I visit my parents. I like them with strong cocktail sauce – lots of horseradish and lemon or lime juice with a splash of ketchup for sweetness.

  5. Hmm, that could be good. Mine was just with lime, which was pretty nice. I got freaked out afterwards though when I was writing this post. I googled for “raw oyster” and like the first 100 results are news stories about people who’ve died from eating them. Eeek!

  6. Update: going out for drink Thursday. *grin*

  7. Ooooh, somebody’s got a boah-friend!
