We had tentative plans to meet underwatercolor and minerva42 and somebody whose LJ name I don’t know for dim sum this morning. Unfortunately, I didn’t know until this morning exactly when it was supposed to be, and I had slept too late and was kind of pokey getting out of the house and we hit bad traffic on I-93, so that didn’t happen. Boo. I haven’t seen them in a while.
On the other hand, when we figured out that we weren’t going to get to dim sum in time to eat with them, we decided to avoid the traffic on I-93 north by turning around and going to brunch at Firefly’s in Quincy. They have a really yummy and really meat-heavy brunch buffet, and we had an utter feast. Good biscuits and gravy; I’m really happy to have found a place I can get that.
In other socioculinary news, I got to join cathijosephine for her wonderful hearty vegetable soup with dumplings twice this weekend, and she also introduced me to my first episode of West Wing.
Full, happy, and well-socialized.
