Roundup of my Trip So Far

As many of you know, yesterday I took off for Fargo, North Dakota, to visit kittytech. When I got to Fargo, the plan was for me to use the bank machine. I tried, but the thing was out of order. So I called Caroline, and she did have some cash, so I took the cab over to her place and she paid the driver. Some knight in shining armor I am, huh?

So yesterday afternoon and evening were terrific. Caroline greeted me with this amazing peanut butter chocolate cookie thing, right out of the oven. Yummy, delicious, fabulous, and ... and ... stuff. Thencame the main course, after I'd given her the farmer sausage and jars of honey dill sauce I brought over for her. The main course was pizza burgers. These were hamburgers with pizza sauce made into the patties. She had pizza cheese and sauce on top of that. No ketchup, but for once, that wasn't an issue with a burger. There was some leftover pizza sauce afterwards, so for a nighttime snack, my beautiful sweetheart made pizza buns with the sauce and cheese on the remaining hamburger buns.

Breakfast this morning was the traditional continental breakfast: peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with a glass of milk. High society eats breakfasts like this all the time. Lunch was toast, because we had to try out the new toaster Caroline got.

Today happened to mark the 1-2/3 year mark since we started going out, so for dinner I took Caroline to Ruby Tuesdays. I've never been there before, and I loved it. We each had steak. On top of mine, I poured a generous dose of that incredible flavor-enhancer, ketchup. My steak was an aged prime sirloin. Caroline chose filthy rotten fungi on her sirloin instead. Some people's kids! The appetizers were chicken tenders and chips with cheese sauce.

It is wonderful being here, just spending time with Caroline, laughing with her, being together, listening to old-time radio, basically doing whatever fancy strikes us. Since we're both self-professed computer nerds, we've both been online pretty much the whole time. I am very happy, and I expect this happiness to continue. It's a beautiful thing.
