I just got back from a surprise birthday dinner. netgoth let me choose a restaurant, so I picked the Maraconi Grill. The food was superb, the service was excellent, I had an operatic serenade of Happy Birthday in Italian, and I got to spend the evening with the most wonderful woman in the world.
In short, it’s one of the best birthdays I’ve ever had.
And the evening isn’t over yet. 🙂
Seriously, though. The dining experience in and of itself was so great that I’m going to write a letter to the company to thank them. I know Macarnoi Grill is a chain, but if the location here in St. Petersburg is any indicator of the rest of the locations I’d highly recommend it to any of my friends.
And on a completely unrelated note to the evening, but a highly relevant one in stuff I’ve been dealing with for the last few days, I bring you a quote from today’s Something Positive.
Everyone hurts someone they care about. It’s just part of being human…One day you’ll do something that’ll hurt me, but you know what? I’ll hurt you as well. No one means to do it. It just happens. Sometimes the measure of friendship isn’t your ability to not harm but your capacity to forgive the things done to you and ask forgiveness for your own mistakes.
