I was going to go to bed early tonight because Zombie Strippers is no longer showing anywhere in the Boston area so my original plans were canceled. But Cailin invited me to have dinner with her and Mike&Leslie. Cailin and I gossiped about work until Leslie came home and then we were all indecisive about dinner plans. We finally decided on Sunset Grill out on Allston. When we called ahead (party of six-ish -- was ultimately us four, plus Henry, Meg, Erin, and Aaron) they said we shouldn't have any problem, but when we got there like an hour later [we had told them we would be there soon] there was a "90-120min" wait. So we went to Big City next door -- which is run by the same people, though Cailin found the food inferior. I wasn't very hungry, which was weird 'cause I've been hungry like every few hours the past few days. I ordered a Triple Berry Bitch, an appetizer order of shoestring fries, and an appetizer order of spinach&artichoke skins. The filling in the skins was a bit too like dip for me, but it wasn't too bad.
Someone was talking about bowling, which led to talking about candlepin bowling, and Mike was talking about how candlepin was the only bowling he ever knew, so when he used to watch movies he would be like, "Why are they doing that fake bowling?" He commented that when you watch bowling on tv, like the championships, it's all candlepin bowling. Cailin was like, "You watched bowling?" I concurred that it was on Sunday afternoons, so it was something you passed by as you flipped channels, though not necessarily something you actually watch for very long. Cailin said, "Is this a Norwood thing?" I was like, "Is Mike from Norwood?" As it turns out, she and I had totally had this conversation, but it hadn't really stuck since I think of Cailin's friends as people I'm never actually gonna meet.
(I got home at like 11:30, I just got wrapped up in other things, hence taking forever to post and go to bed.)
