Nixon's Memoirs: Oh what a night

Oh what a night

No, not in the sweet December of '63, but tonight.

The wife and I went out to eat tonight, as it was her payday, and she got a nice raise starting this month. We went to a place we had never been called Sesame's. This hyperlink doesn't really do the place justice, as we found it to be much more delightful, and had no issues with timing or service like Jennifer Christman apparantly had when she wrote the review. The cheesecakes were awesome. After dinner, we just sat and drank coffee and went through the monthly bills (all of which we are paying EARLY now.) We plan on being monthly visitors to this place, and highly reccomend it to Little Rock residents and visitors alike.

After dinner, we went to the brand new Wal-Mart Super Center on Chenal in Little Rock. For those not familliar with Little Rock, the West Little Rock/Chenal area is the wealthy area of the city, and this new place fits the bill. It is super-clean, super-neat, super-friendly, and I had absolutely no fear of being accosted, mugged, or offered stolen merchandise in the parking lot as I always had at OUR neighborhood Wal-Mart.

We had plans to see a movie tonight, but after the delightful meal, and the leisurely shopping trip, we came straight home and decided to stay.

The one low-light of the entire day still turned out nice. I finally broke down and called the A/C repair guy, who came out, and discovered what was wrong with the A/C. A TRIPPED BREAKER. Dag blast it, I had actually gone out and CHECKED the breaker box, I'm not mechanically inclined, but I'm no idiot either. But, silly me, I checked the breaker box that had the big pipe leading to the air conditioner, and not the OTHER breaker box, which was what tripped. So, we paid $64.50 for this guy to drive out and flip a switch. But hey, it's 74 degrees in here now! YEAH!

All-in-all, a very good day.
