The Great Slumber

One of my good friends are leaving town this month, due to the fact that he is graduating. So, we decided to spend some time together before he leaves.

We decided to hold a great slumber party. We used to do this before, a few times, spending the weekend in one of our apartments, and watching a movie marathon, just hanging out and chilling.

So, for this past weekend, we started the occasion by going to this restaurant called The Cheesecake Factory. It was a rather swanky restaurant in a mall, and they have a huge collection of nothing else but designer cheesecakes. So, we had some enticing appetizers, like grilled artichokes and fried calamari, and I had a tuna tataki salad for the main course. Paired with a mojito, the whole evening was perfect, ending with a chocolate Kahlua cheesecake for me.

We then went to a video rental store and rented four movies, to be watched during the course of the weekend. We ended up with Pan's Labyrinth, The Name of the Rose, Love in the Time of Cholera, and Atonement. It was a great selection, all drama and no comedy, though. I especially enjoyed Love in the Time of Cholera and Atonement, both love stories, and both were tragic.

So there, that was my last slumber party with my Kuwaiti friend. He is due back in Kuwait, scheduled to return in a week. Whether I will still see him in the future or not is an open question.

  1. Do you know that I have never tasted cheesecakes? You'd think I like something that has cheese in it but I can never find cheesecakes in Ottawa... or maybe I see them but don't know what they are.

    The movie selection looked good. I really have to see Atonement.
