We had a really great time at the Melting Pot tonight. We had a great bottle of wine that, because we live in Texas, we got to take home with us when we didn't finish it. We also got free champagne, and it was really good as well. And...our waiter was kind of new, you could tell, but he was really nice. We knew that they sold some of their stuff (like their salad spice) to their customers, so we asked if they sold their teriyaki sauce, and our waiter said, "I don't think so, but let me bring you out some." He brought us out two medium-small containers of the best teriyaki sauce ever. We also gave $5 to St. Jude and got a calendar. And then we had to buy something to put money on our debit card for a tip (because you can't use the gift card for that) and so we donated ANOTHER five to St. Jude and got another calendar. Now I have to find someone to give the calendar to who may use it. Melissa, do you want it?
Also, I looked totally hot. Well, that sounds like I'm full of myself, but I really did. I had on a tiny little maroon and black plaid skirt from Hot Topic, a red and black bustier, and a sheer black button up over the bustier. I wore that to the Melting Pot. I was daring. The skirt, seriously, barely covered my butt. Jordan couldn't take his eyes off of me. It was great.
If I spelled teriyaki wrong, I tried to do a spellcheck but LJ doesn't know how to spell it either.
Also, I think that "Melting Pot gift card" will be our standing gift request from Jordan's parents for our anniversary.

Oh, and Jordan's brother got us Mastermind and Kingdom Hearts 2. I think that's it.
Anyway, we had a good Christmas morning. We slept kind of late, got up and opened presents. It was fun. Then we called family members, and Jordan made Christmas Quiche, two kinds actually, and the Spinach and Ricotta cheese one was good. And then we really just bummed around the house, watching movies/playing Playstation/watching Law and Order/playing games. It has been fun. Did I mention that Christmas Day was fun?
Oh, and Jordan's parents got Snickers a grey mouse, and he LOVED IT. He terrorized it all over the house and under the tree, for at least ten minutes. It was rather humourous. He wacked it into the exercise equipment, too. Silly cat.
