One new thing a day: 8 July 2012

  1. That pic brings back memories–I went to Jax on prom night and probably still have the little black personalized matchbook tucked away somewhere. Can’t even remember the full name of the date who paid for my dinner, but then again he deserves forgetting after asking me out when he was secretly going out with one of my best friends (the look on his face when we came walking up to his house together was priceless). I do remember thinking Jax was the height of fanciness, and have ever since been rather afraid of returning for fear that it’s not true.

    I will drink to trying new things, including new things that can be imbibed. Did that tonight, in fact, at a new restaurant in a different part of town than we usually visit in Duluth. Happy birthday and happy month of novelty!


  2. A pomegranate mojito. Not that adventurous, perhaps, but it was noticeable because the other day I saw that on a menu and didn’t try it because I thought it might be weird, but then when I got the normal mojito it tasted like shit and I was disappointed. So this time I tried it and it was incredibly delicious.


  3. The new thing I am going to try today is to remember that your birthday is in July…not November, which is the month that is stuck in my head as “Alison’s birthday month.” Happy Birthday, Alison McGhee, celebrator of birthdays. And sorry that I was four months off.


  4. Thanks, Tessa and hhb and Z’Driz, for the birthday wishes! It was a good, good day. (And Z’Driz, many of my favorite people in the world are Scorpios, so I’ll take November as a compliment.)
