You'd think with all my leisure time, I'd have written this during the weekend.

I spent most of the weekend quietly by myself. I know I sound like such a hermit, but I really enjoy my home and the solitude it provides. Eric and his mom left on Saturday for Ocean City; they had to take care fo a couple of things at the condo there. Then on Sunday, they drove up to Atlantic City for the Lady Gaga concert. It was Eric's mom's birthday, and that was her present. And, yes, despite being 61, she wanted to go see Lady Gaga in concert.

During the course of the weekend, I did my usual domestic things, went out for coffee a couple of times with my friend Stuart, and just generally stayed inside where it was cool.

On Sunday, the weather was very hot and humid. Stuart asked me to join him and his partner Dave, and their friend Matt over at Baker Park for the fireworks. I declined. I was truly happy being home where it was cool and comfy. I ended up watching a good film on Logo, "The Mulligans", in which a father falls for his son's best friend. Not as lurid as it initially sounds.

Later that evening, I got a text from Eric that the concert crowd was massive and it was taking forever to get out of Atlantic City. Sure enough, in addition to the heavy traffic, there was a very serious accident on the AC Expressway that caused major delays. I went to bed around 2 AM. Eric finally got home a little bit after 7 AM. He crashed and slept until 11 AM. He was still very tired, but didn't want to sleep the day away.

So, we ran a couple of errands and went to lunch. The rest of our day was very quiet.

And that was my holiday weekend. HOw was yours?

I've not had much luck recently at our local Famous Dave's restaurant.

On Monday, Eric and I went there for lunch. The tri-tip I ordered was served beyond rare...it was completely raw. Ugh. I sent it back and declined anything else...it just turned me off.

Yesterday, we had a coupon for a free meal so we went back to the same restaurant. No, I did not order the same thing as the day before...I ordered a platter of chopped pork w/ some BBQ sauce. As I'm eating the pork, I find a little piece of metal, like a crinkled up steel shaving in the middle of my food.

I reported it to the manager, she apologized and immediately comped my meal. She brought me a new serving of pork (metal-free this time), and she treated me to dessert.

I've been going to that location for a few years now, and I've never had a problem. Hopefully, this was just a fluke.
