New month, new fun

Coffee and sunshine this morning. Nothing like it! Haven't seen the sun in days and I was beginning to question its existence.

Another late night, we celebrated a birthday last night with Dr. Mike and Paula, friends from O'Fallon, MO. Paula turned 27, so we went to Vivian's Vinyard in St. Charles for some amazing food. Margarita turned out to be the drink of the night. Had portabella 'shrooms, shrimp and wings for appetizers, and I ended up having the filet maison - a 10 ounce filet with some kind of cream sauce. Great place if you're ever in the St. Charles area on 2nd street. Afterward, we took a trip to a place called Duschene Bar for more cocktails and a few games of pool. It was a good time.

On the way home, we passed a bunch of emergency vehicles parked on the top of a levee near Spirit of St. Louis airport and above it all hovered a helicopter with search lights. We had no idea what was going on, but we figured it was a manhunt of some kind. Turned out, they were searching for a plane crash site, after a small commuter jet disappeared off the radar screen shortly after take-off.

Coffee is so much better fresh ground. 8 O'clock is best but any fresh ground is better than the stuff in a can.

Better head into the recording studio. I have a bunch of projects to get out today, lots of clients getting ready for Christmas.

Bah humbug.

Ahh, the fruity flavour of the World's (second) Best Margarita at Vivian's Vineyards is certainly hard to beat... Unless it's mixed with painted chocolate to make the perfect birthday party! ;)

Thanks for enjoying the evening with us, Dave! You and Tawny are the greatest! (Perhaps "greatest" should be "greatests" [as in plural]?)
