Well what a terrible thing!! I neglected to mention my wonderful breakfast at Pellegrino's on Saturday morning!
This was supposed to be a bigger than Ben Hur affair; but the earliness of the call for an eight o'clock breakfast before the Mill Zheng course scared off some! It ended up being a delightful little affair with gorgeous duo Laura and Nilanthe!! Just sitting there beside the shiny blonde goddess and the Sri Lankan princess with a super model nose was enough to put a smile on my dial 5 miles wide. But those who know these two wonderful beings know that there is so much more to them than what charms the unsuspecting eyes!
Absolutely wonderful to hang out and especially in the no-nonsense atmosphere of Pellegrino's where the staff often save valuable time by doing away with niceties... Not that i have anything against polite waitstaff; it's just good to have a change and get good service without embellishment sometimes!
Speaking of which i found a definition for the word i used to describe Laura when she picked me up from the airport (ebullient) and yes my instincts were pretty spot on! I admit one should generally make sure one knows what a word means before using it to describe someone eg. tumescent.
Ebullient: adj. Zestfully enthusiastic. Boiling or seeming to boil; bubbling. and: showing excitement; overflowing with enthusiasm.
Admittedly this was a pretty good word for all three of us that morning of our reunion at Pellegrino's!!
Sunday night was dinner of Lamprais at Lawrence and Tanyas' place. YUM! Those of you in or passing through Melbourne go see the wonderful people at Curry and Chips and eat or take home frozen a Lamprais! Their number is listed and they are right next to Syndal Station in Melbourne. Great to spend some time with L and T; two Darwinites living the Melbourne dream.
