So thankfully, I got the shirts exchanged without much hassle. Sadly, the macarons were terrible and not actually free. They were chewy and hard, I took the first bite and I knew it was all wrong when my teeth were still in the actual macaron, and I had to clamp down. An utter travesty. Sure, I sound like a macaron snob, but I mean they're one of those things you just expect to be completely sublime.

So now I'm out $10 and I think I'm just going to stay home and have rice with spinach stew (which has some... herring? in it). I might go out late though.

On Monday, I went out after seeing a show. And by a show I mean Wozzeck at the Met. We started with some oysters, littlenecks, and cherrystones. I had a lobster roll, although I would have preferred a steak had it not been Lent. Afterwards, I had a cheesecake and some "coffee" (after all, it was St. Patrick's Day and no, oakvale, I did not wear orange). Excellent throughout, and not too badly priced. It also didn't hurt that our waitress was nice to look at. Not bad at all.

Wozzeck is excellent. Was it a good production/performance?

Well I felt it was a little overacted but otherwise excellent. The atonality wasn't as jarring as it was made out to be. However I absolutely loved the bass with the part of the doctor. I found it a bit darkly comic, in fact. At times not even darkly, with the doctor talking about piss and all. The end, though, could have been lifted from a modern horror film.

Thai again, although less authentically. I had a fried striped bass, which is apparently called "pla pad prik". Are you familiar with that, opeb-

Oh, wait.

It wasn't bad, although the base sauce wasn't entirely liked. I'll admit it was meant to approximate another fried fish dish at another restaurant. That I think is sea bass, and it's delicious, but the place is more expensive and nearly an hour away. So we wenr to a place in town. There's always something off about this place. Sometimes it's that the sauce is not my favourite, sometimes the dry noodles leave a lingering taste for days, sometimes the creme brulee is cold. Dessert this time however, was not a matter for complaint, a warm coconut sticky rice confection with mango. Quite like the coconut tapicoca pudding at my second-favorite Thai place in the city.

I had salmon with pesto cream sauce. And biscuits. Lots of biscuits.
