I had coffee at Cafe Brazil tonight in anticipation of staying up all night and working, which is, in fact, happening in good form. On my way home, I was litening to KZPS, and they played Pretty Woman by Roy Orbison.
It's not the greatest song. Despite that, its lyrics are the namesake for a wine bar called Mercy in Addison. I've been there rather a lot with Kelly and a couple times with Tamara. I've even been with Arin on at least one occasion, and I've also gone alone once or twice. I love that place.
The atmosphere is relaxed, dark, and soothing. The music and decor are perfect. The wine list is a mile long, and many bottles, even those that are more pricey or relatively rare, are sold by the glass. The dinner menu is also excellent and contains such favorites as filet mignon and lobster; as is their water menu, which includes some of the best in the world, like Voss artesian water from Norway.
But, I haven't been there in months. I've been unmotivated to don the requisite black suit, otherwise very busy, and generally without appropriate company. I miss having the time to go there.
Makes me sad, it does.
Even before hearing the Roy Orbison song tonight, I had been considering going there after my chemistry exam. I decided against it, again, for lack of motivation.
Perhaps I'll set aside a couple hours for Mercy when I get back from Pittsburgh next week.
P.S. I only browsed Fark.com today because I ran out of BBC News to read. :)
P.P.S. I added a WHOIS nameserver entry through GANDI for helium.denterprises.org. That might fix the stupid DNS issues that keep cropping up.
P.P.P.S. I just heard Southern Sun on the Digitally Imported Chillout station. That has to be one of my favorite songs.
P.P.P.P.S. In an opinion regarding the ten commandments today, a Supreme Court justice used the word "decalogue" to describe them. Brilliant!
P.P.P.P.P.S. I wonder how many Ps are acceptable in these postscript things?
