Happy Steak and BJ Day!

(originally written around 3:30pm)

So, I got a description of Steak and Blow Job Day from a friend, but I understand it's made the rounds. Sydb is a vegetarian, so we decided it would be fun for me to come into town to treat Wolf for S&BJ Day.

Treat, as in, pay the tip for the free meal at Benihana's, that Wolf got for Christmas, that is. I like cheap dates. ;)

Sydb and I have been planning this awhile now. We decided to keep it as a surprise for Wolf, and even figured out how to arrange for me to pick him up at work...

Last night, I made a list of everything to load into the car. I'd be leaving from bowling, so I wanted to make sure I brought everything with me. This morning, the boys were extremely helpful. They carried stuff out to the car for me. They remembered to crate the dogs, etc. etc.

It wasn't until I was a third the way to school that I looked down and noticed that it was only 7:20! They snookered me into leaving 20 minutes early. I ended up reading the paper in the parking lot at the bowling alley, since they often don't unlock the door until 8:30.

I've brought what I need to do the items on today's list, but then I got distracted by trying to access the internet on their wireless network. Sigh. If we sit around doing computer stuff later, I'll join in the fun by working on bills or chess stuff.

But right now, we're waiting for Wolf to call and say he's ready to be picked up at the office. I'll then drive to the office and call Sydb when I get to the parking lot, for her to call Wolf and tell her she's there. Once I pick up Wolf, we'll go to Benihana's for a nice steak dinner. Yummy!
