2nd day dinner: at sadaf in downtown san diego, cornish hen kabob ("extremely well-done") for me but to her taste, shrimp kabob ("extremely well-done") for her, bottle of shiraz... music... observation of some really extreme encounters between people dancing...

3rd day lunch: at some really old and local looking mexican cafe, whole fried red snapper (head included) for both, coke for me, diet coke for her... she kept insisting afterwards that i hated the meal cause of the fish head (i covered the eye with half a lime at some point)... i kept saying no... it was really fun and really good... really...

3rd day dinner: at home, oven-baked all beef hot dogs (extremely well-done of course), mortadella, shirAzi salad, sliced pickles, oven-heated pita bread (extremely crispy of course), coke for me, diet coke for her... while watching the movie shipping news...
