Can't Stand It, I Know You Planned It

On Friday night, H and I met Stefanie for dinner at Nye's. Nye's is a famous local restaurant and bar that H described as a fancy VFW that mobsters might go to. We sat in a cool curved booth with sparkly gold vinyl seats. We ate the best pierogi I have ever eaten in my entire life. {I haven't actually eaten much pierogi in my life, so my praise may not mean much, but oh my gosh, they were delicious.) Our salads and appetizers were accompanied by a relish tray containing pickles and pasta salad, which H and Stefanie had seen before, but I had never before seen pasta salad on a relish tray. Then we had our main dishes, which were also delicious. Finally, H ordered apple streudel or something (Stefanie, do you remember?) for dessert, and Stefanie and I each had one delicious bite. After dinner, we went into the bar where The World's Most Dangerous Polka Band performed. For really no reason at all, H announced multiple times that all lesbians like him, and then he proceeded to chat with the lesbian next to us who, it turns out, got her masters degree at the same school where H and I got our law degrees. In summary, Nye's = awesome.

On Saturday, it snowed. A lot. I stayed home all day. H rented the Futurama movie and the first disc of Season One of 30 Rock, so that kept us pretty busy.

On Sunday, after church, we watched the Vikings win. Then we went to H''s office for a little bit, and finally, we went over to a friend's house to play Rock Band. Rock Band is my new favorite game. I took turns playing the guitar and drums, and I even sang a couple of songs, including "Sabotage" by the Beastie Boys. I have discovered that rapping is not my true calling. I am lucky to have this lawyer thing to fall back on. I actually did well enough for the game, but I will leave the real rapping to others. What what. Boy-eeee.

would you believe i didn't know the vikings won until i read it on your blog right now?

sometimes i think blogs are my main news source. i also found out about an earthquake in california via someone's blog well before i saw it on any "official" web sites.

Do you think that if it keeps snowing you will get better at rapping? I wonder if it is a skill one can acquire.

Snow + Rock Band = best weekend ever.

Am wondering what made the polka band so dangerous? Did they literally make you roll barrels during "Roll Out the Barrel?"

I was in Madison for the weekend and the weather was horrible! I bet I saw 25 cars in the ditch on my way home. It always amazes me how people forget how to drive even though we have snow EVERY SINGLE YEAR.

I want to come to Minneapolis and hang out with you and Stefanie and eat pierogi. Sounds like a good time. And then, since lesbians always like ME, as well, H and I can compete to see who the lesbians like the best. ;)

Nye's sounds awesome. Rock Band? I have never heard of such a thing!

1. I do not remember what Nye's called the dessert H ordered; I just remember he ate it in about 17 seconds flat. Clearly it was tasty.

2. There's a Futurama movie? I had no idea.

3. "What what. Boy-eeee"? You crack me up. :-)

Stefanie said...

Oh, and Liz? You should definitely come visit us!!

What a great weekend. It's supposed to snow here tomorrow and I. Can't. Wait.

I love Nye's.

Also, I think that if you practice rapping, it might actually be your calling. You know, if the whole law thing doesn't work out.

don't call me MA'AM said...

I could totally see you as a hard core rapper. Practice, woman. Practice. That's all it takes. I wouldn't recommend that you get a grill or a big clock to wear around your neck. The clock would probably throw you off balance causing you to careen around and then finally fall on your face, thus smashing your mouth, which would get all bloody due to the grill being there

On second thought? Rapping=dangerous. Stick to lawyering.
