The Constant Curryhouse

John and I both had completely crappy days at work yesterday, for totally different reasons. As much as I'd love to go in to great and gory detail, I don't want to get fired (or get anyone else fired, for that matter...)

In any case, we both just needed to wind down and enjoy the first evening in what seems like months when neither of us HAD to do something either that night or the following morning.

We also didn't particularly feel like cooking, so we walked over to Radhuni, our favourite Indian restaurant. We got there at about 6:30 and it was hoppin'! We're really glad they're busy, since we used to go there on a Friday evening and be the only people in the restaurant for 2 hours. We said hi to all the usual guys and ordered our normal 'variations on a theme' dinner. We're somewhat adventurous in our ordering but we also don't eat out as much as we used to, since we're saving money for carpets and furniture and other such luxuries. Anyway, the food was absolutely amazing and the service was really good. John loves Tarka Dal, which is kind of a lentil & garlic stew thing, and every time we have it at Radhuni, it's slightly different. This time, it was really garlicky and just smoky enough. YUM. The food there has always been really good, but if it continues like this we're going to have to move in.

We stopped at Blockbuster on the way home and rented 3 movies (one Kate movie, one John movie and one compromise. We watched The Constant Gardener (the compromise) when we got home - it was completely gripping and really well-filmed. It's was really draining, though, so we both conked out right after it finished. If you haven't seen it, definitely check it out.

John has nipped in to the office to run some random updates, so I'm curled up on the couch, trying to decide between watching the Kate movie (The Prince and Me - I LOVE Julia Stiles) and do some knitting or make a cup of tea and read some more of the latest Isabel Dalhousie saga that I just picked up from the library. Decisions, decisions.
