Goodbye Dinners, Part I

Last night, I went out to dinner with my good friend Danette, a sister-in-arms of the San Diego event industry and budding blogger at Bizarre Treasures. It was meant to be a cocktail hour with several girls from our event management program but it is summer (the busiest season for weddings) so things popped up here and there and it wound up just being me and 'Nette.

We went to Roy's Hawaiian Fusion Restaurant downtown at the Harbor Drive Marriott (next to the Convention Center). The food was delicious and the drinks were strong, but the service left something to be desired.

Anyway, we complained about not having jobs and about all the difficulties of finding one. We complained about housing/moving and having too much clutter. And we complained about money.

Since we're both unemployed right now, we realized that dinner at a place like Roy's was probably not the wisest financial choice. But since we've been unemployed for some time, we've adjusted our life styles a lot over the months and decided that we deserved a treat. Besides, life is short... do we really want to worry about the price tag for this one dinner when we have no idea when we'll see each other in person again?

So we happily swallowed a totalled $90 dinner and parted ways, wondering what the future will hold for us and hoping that we'll be able to stay close in touch no matter how busy or physically far apart we get.

  1. Shanna, you are the bomb for writing such an eloquent and well thought blog post about our night out. And yes though I sort of obsessed about spending the money it was no longer an afterthought once I got home. Definitely money well spent with good times and good talks. You and I are definitely "sisters-in-arms" and although we are far apart we are merely a phone call, text message or email away. I will keep you posted about my trip to Rancho Cucamonga shortly.
