I was trolling my Bloglines tonight while I waited for my laundry to dry. This post reminded me that I haven’t been to a good dinner party in a while.
You know that I love eating. And if you’ve met me you know that I love talking. But I bet there are very few of you out there, if any, that know that I enjoy listening most when I’m surrounded by people who are smarter than I am—and we also happen to be eating and drinking. It is one of my favorite things in the world. Right behind shrimp and fish tacos. Of which I can talk endlessly about. Or maybe I’m just missing a good night out on the patio in Australia. And maybe that’s because I drank nearly a bottle of wine tonight.
But seriously, if you’re a brainiac that likes to talk about free will vs. destiny, and you have a friend with whom you like to debate such things—please invite me over and treat me like you’ve always known me instead of like a guest. If the weather’s good we’ll sit outside on the hood of the car. I’ll lay back and look at the stars and listen to both sides. Afterwards we’ll go inside and turn on the Garden State soundtrack.
That would make me a happy girl. It’s been way too long.
