Guess Who's Coming to Lunch?

Guess who made my day Wednesday by meeting me for lunch? OK...here are a few clues:
  • She has a blog.
  • She loves to read.
  • She's on my blogroll.
  • She's been to my house before.
  • She's a wonderful, intelligent, Christian woman.
  • Sadly, she calls UT her Alma mater.
  • She secretly wants to be an Aggie.

Although it would be cool to offer a prize to the first person to guess Linda, I'm not. But if I were, it would be something really great, like an all expense paid trip to Aruba.

Or not.

It probably would have been more like a $10 gift card to Barnes and Noble, which is just enough money to get you in the door, but not enough to actually buy anything that you want. It would be like a teaser gift.

But since I'm not giving away a prize for guessing, no one has to worry about getting into a bathing suit for the trip to Aruba or being disappointed at how little $10 will buy you at Barnes and Noble. I'm so glad that I cleared that up for everyone.


In case you've forgotten (because I momentarily did), I was posting about my lunch date with Linda. She picked me up from work and we went here. Their chicken fried steak with jalapeno cream gravy is truly magical. We had a good visit, although it was too short for my taste. It appears that I actually have to be at work in order to get paid.

Bummer.

It's been a joy getting to know Linda. If you've never read her blog, you should head over there. I promise...you will be blessed.

Ahem. Most of this is absolutely, unequivocally true. Except that bit about secretly wanting to be an Aggie. Clearly Xandra is delusional. Hopefully, the UT ball I left in her car for her son will be a witness. . . .

We did have a marvelous time except ditto on being too short.

That is, the time being too short. It's obvious from the picture that I am not too short.

What a fun time, and that restaurant looks quite intriguing and yummy. Wish it could have been me ;-)

Hi Xandra! I came over here from Linda's blog, and I do believe this is the first time I've visited your lovely blog. I lived in Houston for a very short time many years ago. I'm glad you and Linda had a wonderful visit!

It is so neat that you two live close by each other and get to be real life friends as well. Nice picture. I never knew what Linda looked like until now.
