Friends left, had a nice day out, now back home.
Friends are vegan, so I took 'em to a new vegan cafe in a nearby town that an irkmate had mentioned for dinner last night, 'cos it’s always nice to be able to pick from the whole menu rather than the sole option. That was not so nice…
The waitress appeared to be brand new and have no clue what she was doing (like, so bad it was funny, lucky this isn’t a tipping culture), and, while the curry one of my friends got was apparently pretty decent, and the other one’s food was OK, mine was what can only be described as bloody awful. I was expecting a vegan lasagne to have, well, vegetables in it, it didn’t appear to, there was some lentilly thing and something involving what appeared to be breadcrumbs A wedge of stodge, with some fake cheese in a cracked grey layer on top. Microwaved.
Dessert was actually pretty good though, I’ll give 'em that.
Wound up being sick when I got home. I mean, I can’t state definitively it was the ‘lasagne’ (and other people in there were ordering it as their regular, I heard 'em ), but…
Mooom, the balloon thing I was irking at last year had very few balloons except early morning too; there were a few inflated on the ground briefly during the day, but that was it. Apparently a few years earlier, there wasn’t a single balloon fully inflated- forget leaving the ground- during the entire 5 day event. That one is free to enter though, if a bit far for you to travel.
