Dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe

Today was a fun day.  Sarah and I went to Starbucks for a mid-afternoon snack, where we snickered at the bad covers of mediocre Beatle songs that played during our stay.

We then went to Sobey's to buy milk and cheese.  I asked Sarah to take a picture of these mugs at the checkout counter:

I thought how funny it was that they were advertised as "Cool Great Mugs" because on one section of my communication board I have the words Cool! Great!  Fantastic!  When I get extremely excited about something, I point to these three words in quick succession, and add tthe word Brilliant! to really drive home my thought.  In my imagination, I could see someone from Sobey's following me around, trying to see what unique words I use in my daily routine to impress the world.  Not very good spies, however, they glimpsed (and stole!) only two words: cool and great.

After Sobey's, Sarah and I met Leon at the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner.

Dinner was delicious, atmosphere was fun, and, the music was definitely better than that of Starbuck's!  I was kind of disappointed, though, when I requested songs by Frank Zappa and all they had was Valley Girl by Moon Unit Zappa.  Shameful!  One of the musical geniuses of our time, and they don't have any of his songs!

I'll still probably go again.  Maybe if I keep going and keep bugging them to get more (any!) Frank Zappa songs they will!  It would only improve the atmosphere to hear Muffin Man and Baby Snakes playing in the background, don't you think?
