September 14, 2002 Saturday

With the cheap car rental I was mobile...nice.

Angela's and Philip's Birthday

Angela invited me to her birthday bash at her friend Philip's new digs at the new construction complex at Highway 401 and Yonge St. My gift was my hand crafted Cabernet Sauvignon with a personalized label: Angela Queen of the Damned - her choice. It was also Philip's birthday. Except for 3 people, I didn't know anyone, which is great for me. That way I can converse without the baggage of pre-conception. Most of the invitees were friends of theirs from the Chicken Deli, a popular meeting place/restaurant/bar at Mt. Pleasant and Eglinton.

With Angela taking care of the hors d'oeuvre, the promise of good food was there. I was not disappointed. With everyone bringing their own booze, there was lots to choose from. While I was aware of doing the 30 km. Durham Durango race early the following day, I couldn't help but get one too many glasses of the satisfying reds and an occasional white. As I was in the swing of things, I had to leave early for my race.

Next time I stop by Chicken Deli, I'd certainly be keeping an eye on those people and pickup the conversation where I left off.
