After a glass or two

I am very partial towards Red Wine. And if it is mulled, well, nothing like it….yummmmm….

But the only problem is that after the second glass I would be reading sentences like this 😉

All is well that…

Saturday did start a little dull. Just one of those days, you know when everything seems dull , and I almost thought of cancelling the brunch I had earlier planned with friends and join them only for the movie Interstellar. But then at the last minute decided to go ahead and boy, was I glad. We went to this place called ‘Dice n Dine‘. A place where there are so many games that you can keep playing till your heart’s content along with some good food too. We ended up spending almost 3 hours there, not to mention a lot of food and money.

The first game one of our friend chose was ‘Cards Against Humanity‘. I never knew I had a wicked side to me, until that game. I won the first round with the most outrageous answers that I never would have thought of or said in real life. Wow! that was so much fun that I asked for a another  game almost at the end when we had less time left to leave for the movie. IMG_3128

And then we chose something called ‘Say Anything’, basically to test how well you know your friends. IMG_3130

We almost chose ‘Game of Thrones’ but since it was a long game and we were running out of time we decided to forgo that.IMG_3135

And instead choose ‘Trivial Pursuit’. I am so bad in General Knowledge and was the least scorer in this. But among all the answers the one answer that stood out was, the tea that has the most antioxidants present is ‘not’ the green tea, but the ‘white’ tea. Hell, I didn’t even knew there was something called a white tea till then.IMG_3140

And I ended up having a big cup of ice-cream all by myself (sorry, I never share my chocolates or ice-creams) which made all of it much more sweeter.

What started out as a dull day ended up pretty good with lots of fun.

 

Impartiality towards vegetarians

When we (friends) were taken for a Christmas Brunch treat to a very expensive restaurant by my friend little did I know I would have to survive only on the appetizers and salads. Here is a glimpse of the brunch menu (sort of a buffet)

kg-26How many vegetarian items do you see there ? If I did count correct that day it was 2. Yes just 2 out of the whole lot. Being the only vegetarian in the whole group, I was pitied that day by every one 😦 , but thank fully the whole salad and appetizer counter made up for the lack of other items. Among the items displayed down, almost 70% were veggies 🙂 Thank God for those salads and breads.

kg-21And that warm mulled wine also sort of gave me company for the whole meal. The best wine I have tasted till now. I never knew that warm wine with spices could taste that good.

kg-23I had so much of those salads and appetizers that I did not have enough space to try the lovely desserts (even in spite of me being a pure dessert person). The only dessert I tasted was the German Cake of some sort with strong chocolate favor which was too good to ignore.

At times being a vegetarian is a tough job. The choices are very limited and when all your friends are non vegetarians, it adds more peer pressure 😉

I couldn’t resist adding this quote 😉

“I did not become a vegetarian for my health, I did it for the health of the chickens.”
