Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

02/14/2005: Valentine's Dinner with Charlie's Angels

For my Faux Holiday Charlie got me a funny book: "Bobby Bacala" (Steven Schirripa) from The Soprano's called The Goomba's Book of Love

Here are a few nuggets that will make you yearn for
the next season of The Soprano's:

"You might be a Goomba if...
a) you've ever eaten a sandwich on the toilet,
b) the photo in your year book is a mug shot,
c) you own a CD, DVD and VCR player but have never been to
store that sells those things.

You are definitely not a Goomba if...
A) you pay taxes,
B) you vote,
C) you shop at old navy,
D) you ever sit in the cheap seats,
E) you listen to country and western music.

You are definitely a Goomba if...
a) you would rather starve than eat a Domino's pizza,
B) you would rather starve than eat anything made with Ragu,
C) you'd rather starve than eat at The Olive Garden,
D) Your middle name starts with "The,"
E) you know a guy who knows a guy.

There were the most lovely Roses (Red for me, Peachy Pink for the daughters) and Cards (Charlie's a "card person" who likes to find "just the right card.") And we all had a most delicious meal at The Claddaugh, Irish Pub. Food was fab (per usual) and they even had a harpist for musical entertainment.

Ah...Valentines Day....and now February's half over.
