Dinner at the Funky Thai

     What a great time we had! I can't believe that we all arrived around the same time - this usually never happens, but somehow we did - never to happen again, I'm sure!. The dinner was great! Nathalie (as usual) knew the most about the food we were eating, and could pronounce the types of dishes quite well. Patti, on the other hand, could not and had us all in stitches with her pronunciation of "Shitake Mushroom". Use your imagination!!! Hee! Hee! The ginger beef was so hot and spicy that we ended up draining our water glasses about four times and then you know where we ended up three or four times! All of us except Patti, that is - she put us all to shame and stuck to her diet, eating the veggie dish only. So when you take a look at the pictures please note that Patti is the skinny one of the four of us, but don't you think that Nathalie, Janice and I look happier (except for the flames shooting out of our mouths because of the ginger beef)? We could have posed for a picture to go on the wall as fire dragons,but instead we all had our pictures taken rubbing the belly of the laughing Buddha. No wonder he's laughing! Four great looking girls like us (stop laughing right now!) rubbing his belly. If I refer to myself as the laughing Leslie do you think I could get four good looking guys to rub my belly? Actually, that could happen as I hear that rubbing this fellow's belly as we did, brings us good luck. I would consider myself lucky if I had one good looking fellow to rub my belly - oh wait! I have that - my husband isn't too shabby and I think he would rub my belly anytime I asked. Anyway, I'm getting a little off topic (do you think???) We all decided not to have desert, but it was very, very, very, very difficult. Patti kept us on the straight and narrow - that's how she stays so narrow! Hee! Hee! Of course Janice had to have her picture taken with the gold cat. She's not camera shy at all, although I'm sure I could have been in the picture too, but guess where I was? Think back to the drinking of the water. So it is my turn to choose a restaurant that starts with "G". I would love to come up with something different, but bottom line, it has to have good deserts because I'm not passing up on desert the next time Patti!!!! Can't wait!
