After that, takayla and I went to Borders to get some wedding planning guides (she's considering going this as a side business), and we were in a book store with quite possibly the rudest and most negative customers for such and enclosed area. My god, people. When I was a manager of a book store, usually these sorts of people only crawled out of their caves during Christmas, so I am not sure what the deal was. So many people who looked like they didn't understand or care about book store employees slithered around and grumbled under their brows like they were there against their will. Maybe it was fumigation day at the senior retirement village.
After a few hours, we went out to hang out with Anya and her pals for cosmic bowling. First, we had a family dinner at the Amphoras in Herndon with Anya, Brian, takayla, CR, and me. We got one of the worst waiters I had ever seen in a while. First, he was late. He then refused to write down our orders, and proceeded to get 3/5 of them COMPLETELY wrong. He was dismissive and harried, saying, "sure, sure, sure" to every request, and then forgot about us. Finally, we had to get hold of the manager, and it also turned out the waiter forgot to split the check correctly as well, and we ended up getting most of the dinner for free (as in, the manager took them off both bills). We ended up being half an hour late to Cosmic bowling because of this, which is why Anya was late to her own party. Thank you, Brad and mysticpaws for holding our lanes until we got there.
Lots of people were there, but I got a migraine, and so I don't remember most if it. I do remember having a good time during the portions my brain didn't try and escape through my sinuses. Thanks to CR who got me a Mountain Dew and helped me through it.
