Went out with BF tonight to a dinner to toast (and roast) a friend who is leaving for law school. It was held at the Friar's Club in Beverly Hills, and there were quite a number of us at the table. We were having a great time, howling with laughter and enjoying the evening, when an old man came towards the table and interrupted us, saying that he would have loved to get laughs like that. It was Red Buttons. I about fell off my chair.
And at the table with him was Sid Caesar and Jan Murray. I was in awe. Jan and Red came over to the table and talked with us and got pictures with us and we all had a wonderful time. I kissed Red Buttons on the cheek and BF and I had our picture taken with him. It was VERY cool. And he said he liked my hair! (How could he not, since it's red!)
BF told me that he told his mother that he's met the woman he's going to marry. I still can't believe this is happening - it's all so fast! So his mom invited us over to have dinner with her and BF's sister this Sunday evening. Aack! No pressure! BF said that they will love me. I hope so!
I have been slowly returning to my usual diet, and am still recovering from my vacation. The hardest part is getting back to my weird hours. I had planned to turn in my resignation this week or next, but since I heard that a shift with slightly better hours may come available, I think I'll stick around a while and see how it goes. If I can stay here and work a better shift, that would be great. If not, I'm going to find something else.
Tonight I had salmon, saffron rice, salad, and green beans, and it was yummy. And I've got leftovers for lunch, and lamb and veggies for another meal at some point either while I'm here or for once I get off work. I'm getting there.
I kissed Red Buttons on the cheek!
