Moroccan Milkshakes


Tonight was Girls Night. We went out to Moroccan food on King Street in Alexandria. Tagines (j'adore!) de poulet (tres bien) et de mouton (mal cuisiner). There was a belly dancer (who was not really that great) but the conversation and Moldovan server made the experience.

On the way back to my place we stopped by a local park and swung on the swings for a couple minutes. The other girls didn't have quite as strong of stomachs (elles faisaient mals a cause des balances apres le diner; dommage) so we didn't stay long.

Back home we took pictures, I perfected the use of my camera timer, and then we settled into watching the late-middle school-classic Cruel Intentions. This led to brownies and Kahluha milkshakes (which took Rachel's immersion blender since my regular blender motor doesn't love me).

Then we spent the next hour and a half swapping stories about boys and other girly subjects (pro or con: cuddling while sleeping; actor we all agree we're into - George Clooney if we were all older; how much (or little) our parents told us about the birds and the bees; etc.). As we ended on the sleeping topic, my two pals decided to bow out and get some actual rest. Not quite to my bedtime yet, I decided to be as up to date in my blogging as I can be and as promised, will post the pictures on Facebook.

Hope everyone had a fun Friday!

Note on the above image: after much manipulation of the timer and many poses, we decided to do the "one arm out" classic shot. It was the best picture of the night.
