11:12 pm - Name that Prius!
Lovely review dinner tonight. Not so much for the place or the food, but for the company. Got a ride down to the wilds of Burnsville (nearly Savage!) with the lovely and talented alisgrey to meet up with the usual suspects (plus bonus Jew!) in her fancy new Prius. The on-board navigation system talks to you in this lovely, calm woman's voice. Alis had a problem, though, in that her fancy new car lacked a name. The peculiarities of naming a car in Alis' tribe involve including the letters of your license plate so that the name reminds you of them. Not so hard with some combinations of three letters, but those of the Prius are "ukh."

So in an effort to be helpful I present for your amusement, dear reader, and the possible selection by Alis, these names from the Sikhism Home Page, and their meanings (I've emphasized those I particularly like):

Sukhindir--God of peace
Sukhsharan--Peace in taking shelter in Guru
Sukhshant--The one who is in bliss and peace
Sukhcharan--Peace attained through Guru's Lotus Feet
Sukhchain--The one who is peaceful and calm
Sukhjeet--Remaining in peace
Sukhjeev--A peaceful person
Sukhjot--Light of Peace
Sukhjodh--Warrior of peace
Sukhdeep--The lamp of peace and bliss
Sukhdev--God of peace
Sukhnam--Bliss from Naam
Sukhpreet--One who values inner peace and joy
Sukhbir--Warrior of peace
Sukhmeet--The peace-giving friend
Sukhraj--King of Peace
Sukhram--the one in whom peace prevades
Sukhroop--Embodiment of peace
Sukhleen--Absorbed in joy of God's love
Sukhveer--Warrior of peace

It was, indeed, a nice dinner. Decent food, great company. But did you notice... they didn't have the game on? Most of the music was pretty good, and they turned it down without us having to ask. For a biker bar, I was impressed.

Do the letters have to be together?

There was a TV behind us. Wasn't that showing the game?

I didn't notice, even after the music was turned down. Perhaps I'm just used to the sports bar across the street, with the 17 tvs (in roughly the same area than Renegades), several of which are big screen. The game wasn't intrusive. Perhaps the more sensitive jbru picked up the signals. Perhaps we simply picked a table far enough away from the tv. We were in a good spot if there was a band, though.

Where "good" = "noisy."

It was showing a hockey game by the time we were leaving. I didn't notice until it was time to leave.

Not on that screen, anyway. I gathered from a post in twin_cities that the Vikings did something typical on Sunday; something that would not endear them to local fans. That may have hurt football-fan turn-out on Monday.

::shrug:: It wasn't bad, I just didn't see anything that seemed to stand out. A fun time was had, but that wasn't really any of their doing.

I thought the chicken was good: the chicken fingers on the appetizer plate, and the chicken sandwich that davidschroth had. The friend fish barondave had was fine, as were the onion rings and the fried cheese sticks. And everyone needs to order a banana kamakaze, just because. The rest was forgettable.

The banana kamakaze was tasty. You need to cheat at bar trivia games more often. ;)

awesome. Thanks, Peter! Sukhleen would be a car to wash frequently or it'd be unkhleen.
