Food Porn...

Ya, that is what we did most of the time this weekend. All our friends grouped up and drove down to Austin to celebrate our friends baby shower. We were about 7 of us from Dallas doing the drive and it was fun. We spoke about a lot of crap on the way and back and while we were there too.

When the baby shower started and guests started trickling in, we felt like the ratio of whom we know to whom we do not know increased we did what we always do best. Form our own clique**. We sat down and started to talk about food. Each of us described our favorite item the best we know and how yummy it would taste and so on and so forth. We were talking about it at so much detail that we all started to feel hungry considering none of us have had breakfast or lunch. Then my friend Rama introduced me to the concept of Food Porn. Well that is precisely what we were doing...

I thought it was funny and had to write it down here...

**The other thing I noticed this weekend while we stayed over at our friend's house was the difficulty to make new friends. There were two other couples and two single guys who had also come down for the shower from different parts of the country to stay with my friends. These guys and us probably had so much in common but for some strange reason we did not go beyond exchanging pleasantries. I do not even know their names and I am sure they also don't know mine. We barely spoke. My husband G and R did not even speak with them. All of us formed groups and did our own things.

I think once we get past a certain age it is very difficult to make new friends especially when people you know so well are already besides you. Probably if you were forced into a situation where you did not know anyone then you might make new friends...

Other things I did this weekend:
  1. Wore a saree once.
  2. Spent time with babs alone at the mall for the first time.
  3. Saw Harold and Kumar Part 2...disgusting.
  4. Went to i Fratelli for dinner, Sunday night...yummyyyy.
  5. Met most of my friends.
  6. I am grumpy most of the time.
  7. Did not cook a single meal other than for babs.
  8. House is still a mess...that should be under things I did not do probably.
Till next update...y'all stay safe :)
