Happiness...

... is many things, among them



  1. Actually making it to San Francisco, despite Traffic of Doooooom (TM)
  2. Seeing a recently-moved-to-San-Francisco-from-NY friend I haven't seen in many, many moons (yay, modularformsboy!)
  3. Dining at the lovely Stinking Rose, and still being surrounded by a cloud of garlic 12 hours later
  4. By spur-of-the-moment consensus, attending a once-a-month dark wave 80s club night in San Francisco that turned out to be fabulous (yay, Siouxsie & the Banshees!), including lovely Czech Republic girls who will do silly impromptu pantomime with me to some of the gothier songs played
  5. My lovely, lovely boy, who made sure I didn't pass out from sleep dep, did all the driving to and from the club and scored a rock-star quality parking spot right outside of it, organized the clubbing adventure in the first place, led the quest around parts of San Francisco despite being sleep-depped himself, danced the happy dancings with me for hours at the club, and who is the king of cuddlings and debating and adventures. I loves him, preeeeecious.

Which leeezardly garlic-bathed menu item arrived at leeezard's tongue? Surely not the lamb, after leeezardly misadventures!

Was 40-clove garlic chicken and roasted bulb of garlic spread upon delicious bread with spicy garlic olive oil concoction. So much happiness! Much thanks to leeezard for advising to avoid the less-garlicky lamb.

Allow me to be amused. When I ate at the stinking rose back when my brother was at Berkeley, 40-clove chicken was what I got too :-)

[grin] It is so absolutely fabulous. And that spicy garlic olive oil is to die for. Apparently, there's a Stinking Rose in Beverly Hills, but Joseph is currently threatening sedition before going there again as he is still surrounded by a cloud of garlic nearly 48 hours later.

Clearly, then, he needs more exposure so that he will become used to it.

Boy doesn't know what's good for him!

Benjamin is wise. Of course, boy may garner goth points for vampire-like aversion to garlic.

(I suggest immersion therapy. Unscrew boy's shower head, and put a garlic-flavoured bouillon cube in there. Re-screw and wait for the hillarity)

I agree, though.... it needs more. If he's complaining about the smell, likely he'd not take gently to it a first. And we don't want the dear boy hurting himself! Plus, it'll be sticky, so he does need a good washing in the end. And, of course, in addition to him being innundated with/immersed in the scent of garlic, we want him not necessarily to be desensitized, but to have a positive or pleasant association.... we need to make sure he has a good time. Or rather, Jalen does.

So yes, it needs something more. Something like this, mainly because I'm sick and twisted in this particular way. Though perhaps not in pink. He'd stay put for as long as it took for him to realize that garlic is a good thing :-)

*laughter* Definitely his cup of tea, as it were. This is a boy who belongs to a very naughty camp indeed at Pennsic.

[grin] He would so kill me with the death. And really, he's fond of garlic, but possibly not quite in those quantities.

;) He's actually quite fond of garlic, was simply perturbed by the potency of the stuff at the Stinking Rose.

Is comp sci boy from Maryland and Meesh's crowd of comp sci kids who moved out to LA about 7 years ago. Conveniently, we reconnected about 2 months before I moved out here and he is continuing to be fabulous.

I do hope you tried the garlic ice cream, it's wonderful. =) (If not, more reason to go there again another time!)

Alas, I didn't! We didn't look at the dessert menu. Obviously, I must go back!

Which club night did you go to? Regardless, I'm glad you had fun!

It was this one, actually. The upstairs room in particular was really lovely.

Oh, the DNA Lounge is lots of fun! It's one of the nicest places in the city, I think.

Hurrah! I'm glad we happened upon it, then.

The stinking rose is most excellent. Glad you enjoyed. :-)

[grin] Indeed! Though Joseph is still a bit perturbed that a cloud of garlic surrounds us nearly 48 hours later.
