The funny thing is that I had this boyfriend in college who used to call me the total Capitalist. My views haven't changed much since then. And the boyfriend? Jade never forgave me for dumping him. She called him "The Greek God." Probably because he had these classic features. But his family was really Russian Jew. If I had met him a year or two later, I probably would not have dumped him, but at the time he was 18 and I was 20.

For quite some time, I thought that I had made one of the biggest mistakes in my life. OK. I'll admit that I still occasionally think that. Because he was a gorgeous, intelligent, caring man who thought the world of me. And I just couldn't appreciate it. I should have met him post-therapy. Regardless, I still have the memory of him to let me know what I really deserve in the land of dating.

We stayed friends and his junior year abroad, he met the real love of his life. (Well, that's what I thought the last time I saw them.) When I finally met her, she knew who I was. And I actually liked her. That was when I decided that if I actually liked an ex as a friend that I would keep him in my life. As Patsy would say, she's got him. But I still have the sweater that was originally his dad's that he gave to me as a birthday gift.

And funny thing that I mentioned Greek before. Because Saturday I headed over to the Greek Festival in San Francisco with Buzzgirl.

There was great food...

Pilaf, pastito, and spanakopita. Somehow the Kalamata olives didn't make it into the photo.

And music and dancing.

It's hard to tell but the guy is holding the furniture in his mouth. I want to know about his dental plan.

My first attempt at posting video.

In the food category, there was also the moussaka that Buzzgirl had. I wouldn't order it because after the last week, I was in a near overdose. And then there was dessert. I had consumed all of the galaktoboureko before I realized that I had not taken a single photo of it. I bonded with some of the members of the parish (Yes, they were male.) over cigarettes prior to dessert. When I mentioned that galaktoboureko was one of my favorites, the first guy who I met approved of my selection. Obviously I need to make it again so that y'all can see the wonder of that particular dessert. Oh, and they were such nice folks that I think I might have to go back for their crab feed in January.

I keep thinking that I should do so more cooking but I'm currently at a loss. Nothing seems to call my name currently. So until I get inspired again, I'm working my way through some of the stuff in the freezer. Take that back. I think I just found the inspiration. Check back later this week.
