11:32 pm - Beans make me sleepy
Had a lovely dinner with daedala at the Don Pablo's by her work. Was struck this time not only by how noisy the place was (which we encountered on our last visit), but how subtly unauthentic it is. There was, for example, no burrito on the menu that did not include meat. I probably would have ordered one with meat anyway and I'm sure they would have prepared one without meat if I'd asked but ... Mexican food is based on rice, beans and corn. Meat is a luxury stretched through these ingredients. It struck me as odd. Still, plenty of food for relatively little as these things go.

About three hours after dinner I was forced to nap by the large, comfy goodness in my belly. Got in a couple of hours before having to get up to come to work. I'm hoping that large quantities of water will help stave off the sleepiness or that some additional work comes in to keep me too busy to nod off.

(And, yes, daedala did rant a bit about her work. But they deserved it. What kind of network goes down for an entire day or longer because one machine had a corrupted disk? Sheesh!)

Missed the wedding of my friend Erik, minnehaha's son, but I'm not big on wedding ceremonies anyway. I'm in it for the parties. There's apparently a bash tomorrow night so maybe I'll make some of that festivity before coming to work.

Planning to make the MN-Stf meeting on Saturday. Always fun to see cakmpls and family and their home seems fairly conducive to that type of party.

Have to work Sunday, which is a drag. It'll mean some extra bucks, though, so that'll be handy.

Next Twins game I have tickets to is May 10 vs. the Red Sox.

My recollection is that Don Pablo's is an authentic recreation of the Mexican cantina one might see in a not particularly good John Wayne Western.

Obviously, YMMV. But not much, IMNSHO.
