Chupã de Cãbrã

Thanks y'all for the numerous birthday wishes, presents and presence. 36 is the new gay 23. I got a Lance Bass N*Sync bobblehead as a gift! I'm going to stuff it up my ass and see if it still gets any media attention.

Before packing the house at 30-Degrees/Cobalt, a smaller group of friends went to Fogo de Chão, a newish restaurant in DC where fine cuts of meat are served constantly, Gaúcho-style. I wish I could think of something smarmy and Brazillian to write in the subject header, something no one understands but me and a few Gaúcho, but I'm still sluggish from the meal. It was great food, but y'all had better save a trip to that joint for something very, very special, as the prices were quite steep. While the meat was very delicious, I particularly enjoyed the beets from the salad bar, and some very yummy portabello mushrooms. Mmmm. I don't eat that much meat anymore, and I was kind of wary of eating too much and getting ill. And you can eat waaaay too much meat there. Carl was the winner at the table, having eaten at least whole 2 cows, 3 chickens and a calf.

The garbage pile across the street has mysteriously disappeared, even though the trash dudes don't come until Friday. I wonder if it was DPW or embarrassed neighbors?

Aside from cleaning up garbage, on the 23rd I went out for a rare appearance at Remington's with a buncha squirrels. Mr. Bartender's rep for serving stiff drinks was confirmed. I may show up more often once the smoking ban comes into effect.

On Christmas Day I had a nice dinner with a buncha bears, again with great food and furry company. The highlight of the evening was a special chemical "rainbow log" put onto the fire which riveted a surprising amount of people for a long time.

I think for New Year's I'm going to spend a very subdued time with a small group at a mellow restaurant. Some skiing may be in order after that. I think I return to work on the 3rd, having been off since the 23rd.

You've been off since the 23rd? So fricken jealous! I am so tired of "work" right now.

Hmm, bears and chemicals and riveting. Sounds like you had a very special Christmas.

If they'd had that Calvados I swear I could have mustered another half beast or two.

Jimbo, good to see you in the flesh last night. I hope your stomach is okay with processing all that meat.

It's amazing to me the salad bar at that place - one of the most luscious I've seen anywhere - yet it's an all you can eat meat place. Go figure...
