Last Saturday, Claire and I had our last premarital counseling...the pastor said that he thought we were a good fit and felt very comfortable about our relationship...whew.
I cooked dinner for Claire on V-Day...a day that I despise, mainly because I think it is designed by retailers to sell more crap and is used by guys that don't know how to treat their woman to get brownie points.
I don't need Hallmark or 1-800-Flowers to tell me to treat my woman the right way.
I digress...the dinner was okay. The side dishes rocked (homemade/home-cut garlic fries and a red pepper relish), but my use of a coffee-coriander-brown sugar dry rub was, FAIL.
The steak was cooked well, but you know you have FAILED when both you and the lady are scraping off the top.
The company was the best part of the night...I found a good woman, Charlie Brown.
Went to the Jonny Lang concert on Sunday night in Virginia Beach...He was rocking. If you like blues/soul, I highly recommend seeing him live.
His opening act was a gal by the name of Sharon Little...head over to her website and check her out. She has a great voice, has a good command of the stage and understands how to use her, eh hem, woman-niss...I now own her CD.
Her song writing is okay and could use some more polish.
She reminds me of a Joan Osborne (any song besides "One of Us") or a better, more bluesy Patti Rothberg.
William/Gigglepotamus/JP...you should know she is from Philly.
Family begins arriving on Saturday. That means the wedding is close.
