Milkrathernot [16 Nivvem 4261]
Afterwards, I took Jinthinia to the Milkrather Grill.
(No, you don't need to know what it was after. Suffice it to say that we were both fairly hungry at that point.)
(Oh, OK. After Jinthinia and I had gone to the rollward side of the city to see a puppet show -- no, not one of those puppet shows. And then hiked to the roll'gainst side to pick up some things for her brother. And then hiked back to Quelldrie House, with a brief detour for kathia at Gornotto, except Gornotto was closed, so we went to Best Kathia instead. I am quite sure that Best Kathia was just four blocks away from Gornotto. I'm sure that Vae or someone stuck seven more blocks in between them, probably yesterday.)
Anyways, I owed Jinthinia dinner after that, and a big one too. Now, as you surely remember, I had a distinctly horrible dinner the last time I went to Milkrather Cafe. I vowed a terrible iron-bound vow of blood and thunder, at the time, never to return.
Well, by "iron-bound vow of blood and thunder" I really mean "whiny little journal entry".
Now, well, I have a girlfriend. She'd been meaning to go to Milkrather Grill when she had the money, and never managed to. After much soul-searching, plus, of course, decontamination procedures sovreign against iron-bound vows of blood and thunder, I agreed to take her there.
Well, by "soul-searching, etc." I mean "without exactly remembering until a bit too late which bad cafe I had had that nasty salad at."
Fortunately, Fate intervened to save me. Fate? Or was it ... Destiny? Or perhaps Fortune?
No, actually, I'm pretty sure it was Fate.
Fate doesn't have much to do anymore except govern the lives and deaths of restaurants, presumably.
Milkrather Grill was gone! It was replaced by the Great Vheshrame Sausage Shop.
Me:"Do you eat sausages?"
Jinthinia:[quietly]"Not if they're attached to Orren."
So we mentally renamed the restaurant the Great Traff Vheshrame Sausage Shop, and intellectually inserted insinuations into all the menu items.
|Ablace Sausage (duck and venison)||Traff Ablace Sausage (duck and venison in love)|
|Sausage and Mushroom Pie||Sausage and Mushroom enjoying an Illicit Rendezvous In a Sleazy Pastry Hotel|
|Venison Sausage with Sauteed Onions||Ysgwyd and Delframber|
|Venison Sausage with Blueberry Sauce||Us!|
The Us! was quite good actually.
