You are most of this. But also the married couple that I didn't really talk much too except for that dinner.

Perhaps I can be a tough one to read sometimes, but I enjoyed it!

i really like good indian food. i generally don't seek it out for some reason though when i'm traveling. it was a great option for a large group last minute. it's hard to find good food with a large group without planning annoyingly in advance.

The Indian food was an even better breakfast.

I prefer sleep for breakfast. But Indian food would be a close second.

Nice to meet you, though I think you're more of a figure 4. Hope I'm not outing you by mentioning that.

Wife and I broke off from the group to have our own brunch with some friends, went to Pinewood Social. Gave me memories of those Pinewood Derby cars I used to race during cub scouts, though none of them won and a couple of them didn't even make it to the finish line. Sadly, a couple of minor traffic jams caused by trucks who drive in the left lane on a mountainous road, along with losing an hour due to a time change (I was feeling a bit car-lagged) spoiled our plans to pick up our dogs from the kennel before it closed, not only costing us an extra $50 but kind of defeated the purpose of an "exit bath" which is normally done right before we pick them up. But at least we made it home before sundown so that I could make it to services pretty much on time for Sukkot. For those of you who are not Jewish, Sukkot is the fall harvest festival, where people build makeshift huts and say a prayer about shaving in the Sukkah. Except "shave" is Hebrew for "sit," since Jewish men are not really supposed to shave at any time of year, especially when it's a holiday.
