Saturday Doings

Today was a good day, spent mostly laying around and napping. This evening we headed out for our Big Shopping Trip. Okay, not really. We went to Target. The Target we went to is one of the ones that is housed in what used to be a department store. Two levels with a escalator, and my favorite, the cart escalator. I'm like a little kid when it comes to cart escalators.

After that we headed out to dinner to one of my favorite restaurants. Okay, it's Applebees. I know, I know, all those great independent restaurants and I choose to eat at Applebees??? It's their buffalo wings. I love buffalo wings beyond belief. They're my favorite food, next to a melt-in-your-mouth filet mignon. Anyway, Applebees makes great buffalo wings--nice and tangy and not too spicy. Chili's has good wings too (the ones with bones. I don't like the boneless ones). A guy I dated once said that Dennys had the best wings, but I don't know about that. The only thing I've ever ordered at Dennys is the Grand Slam. Anyway, Applebees and Chili's are my fav. buffalo wings places.

We got to Applebees just in time to catch the tail end of the Cal-USC game. Cal, Kevin's alma mater, beat #3 USC in triple overtime. It was very cool to see. Go Bears! Kevin also has bragging rights in my family--last weekend Cal beat Illinois, my dad's alma mater.

And speaking of sports, San Jose might get a WNBA team! I forgot about the WNBA in my discussion of professional sports below. I think the WNBA is the greatest. Good basketball, and good players you can admire. The summer I lived in Orange County (right before starting my job at IBM) my friend Sherri and I attended many Sparks games. At the time, my favorite player, Ukari Figgs, was on the Sparks (she has since moved on to Houston--booo, hiss!). Figgs helped lead Purdue to a national championship before moving on to professional play. The best thing about women's basketball, as opposed to men, is the team play. While there are stand-out players, there's no one person who steals the spotlight as you find in men's basketball. The women play as a team, passing and assisting constantly. The whole game is a team effort, which I think is a great role model for young girls. Plus it makes for a better game to watch. It's not just the pass-to-Kobe-Bryant, watch-him-score type of game. If you have a WNBA team in your area, I highly recommend a game.

Yup, nuthin' like a big basket of good hot wings for dinner, with ample chunky blue cheese dressing and lots of celery sticks. Why do others not understand this is a perfectly acceptable meal?
