Sushi Sadness

There is a sushi place in town that has had half-price Wednesdays and Thursdays. Every week I have to resist the urge to go there and pig out like a mad woman. Well, yesterday we had no food in the house, and instead of going to the grocery store, we decided to go out to eat. I was so excited to eat all that half-priced sushi.

We get to the restaurant, sit down, and the waitress come over to get our drink order. I kindly say, "It appears as though we didn't get the menu with the specials on it. Could we get that, please?" Then I was informed they no long have their specials.


So now what were we supposed to do? We were already seated and she was getting our drinks. This place is not that cheap without the specials. I was so sad but too chicken to get up and walk out. So we ordered 2 over-priced sushi rolls and then a whole lot of appetizers. It was all good, but it was such a bummer to not get to stuff my face with roll after roll of sushi.

We need to move back to Monterey where the Benihanas had sushi happy hour once a week with half-price sushi. So good.

After our sushi disappointment we took the kids bowling. We went to a bowling alley we hadn't been to before, and it was the cleanest one I have ever seen. It must have been fairly new. They had the bumper that pop up only on the kids turn, which is nice. Ella bowled almost as well as me. Though I did have Alex helping me. We only played one game then let the kids wander at will in the arcade. I love that they haven't yet figured out that they aren't really playing the game when we haven't put money in.

We dragged them out of there in time to come home and watch Idol. We are sadly obsessed. I think the girls did terribly last night. I think David Archuletta is going to win. I'm sure I spelled his name wrong and I'm too lazy to look it up.

But that's about it. No pictures again. I think Anton took a bunch yesterday, but I haven't put them on the computer. Deal with it.

Oh, I'm feeling you! In MD, we lived by this awesome "all you can eat" sushi place. You could watch drug deals go down in the parking lot, but we didn't care--CHEAP SUSHI!

Blake seriously may have cried when they shut down.
