Another year passed

Well, I could launch into a lamentation about time squandered but I won't... I'll do that some other time.

Last night I went out with my housemate Philosophos and Fujian gal to Victoria's for someone's birthday dinner... since I don't plan on being in Boston much longer, it was a special occasion, and I'm glad I could spend it with some of my Boston friends.

Fujian gal from a week ago, at Le's (formerly Pho Pasteur's)...

Fujian gal with Philosophos; Fujian gal has a nice skirt on--si tau po at Victoria's even complimented her on it. (Well she might not be si tau po, but she might as well be... Si tau po was wearing young clothes again tonight... blue jeans plus blouse if my memory is any good... maybe I should have taken a picture of her for Sarge's benefit.)

Philosophos and someone.

Someone with Fujian gal.

We tried the Fu Zhou fried rice--it was ok, but not as good as it could have been, IMO. Too many veggies, it seemed more like the canned veggie mix for cashew or kung pao chicken plus some sea food. Not as 'authentic' as what one might get in one of the more upper scale Hong Kong style restaurants in California.

In front of Victoria's:

Too bad I can't photoshop someone out of the pictures.

(The Lady Downstairs left yesterday morning for Frankfurt--and the New Scot was unable to come. If she reads this she will probably ask why I didn't tell her what day it was. I like to keep things secret.)

Sirach 6:14-17
A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter: he that has found one has found a treasure. There is nothing so precious as a faithful friend, and no scales can measure his excellence. A faithful friend is an elixir of life; and those who fear the Lord will find him. Whoever fears the Lord directs his friendship aright, for as he is, so is his neighbor also.
