A Claire and Micaela Evening

Micaela arrived yesterday evening!  After I picked her up at the airport, we dropped her stuff off at my house and had a quick beer before walking up the street to dinner at Burma Superstar.  We shared a carafe of red sangria, samosa soup, rainbow salad, coconut rice, and platha, along with long-overdue stories and laughs.

Marianne and Jessie were scheduled to arrive this morning, but they had a little incident on a country road involving Jessie's car and a deer around 4:30 am, so we'll be picking them up at SFO at 4:45 pm instead. ;) Everyone's okay except Jessie's car . . . and the deer. :(

Micaela and I are off to lunch & a little shopping before picking up the girls, but I just wanted to say a quick hello.  More updates to come from all four of us!

Food in the city.

Glad your friends are okay. As a fussy adult, I want to ask those girls what they were doing driving at that time of the morning!!! What are they thinking.

*wags finger at them*

Have a great time... and yay to "red sangria."

H. Gillham said...

Eh. I should have used some question marks in that last post.

*Claire waves English teacher finger at me*

I really should edit.

But it's the Internet. That would be weird.

Muah.

Meghan said...

Aww! I hope you ladies have a wonderful time! I cannot wait to hear all about it!

Signe said...

Mmm, red sangria! It's been ages since I have that and I think that needs to be corrected ;)
And too bad about your friends car and the deer *snif*

Hugs,
Signe

I remember you telling me about Burma Superstar, it will be on my list the next time I go to SFO.

There's this resto I went to called Fresca (I think it's in the Mission). The food was amazing. You should check it out.

I can't wait to hear the stories from you girls.
