Been borderline (frequently strayed over, yes) grumpy all day. Came home and curled up with Val McDermid's _The Torment of Others_, which I just finished and am now about to hopefully not blow some cash on ebay.

That was me, for most of the day. Feeling bereft, and feeling guilty for not being happy that Carol has scored what looks like a decent job. I would be doing the Lotto 649 happy dance if only the job were here in town instead of the other side of the island. I was actually close to tears, on several occasions. Kathleen knew I was upset, and suggested going out for lunch; Angela, Nancy & Dave joined us. T. had a meeting... and teased me mercilessly all day. Michelle called me after work to see how I was, and said she thought he was just trying to get me on the go. He & Dave seemed to think the boss had upset me - they didn't realise it was all personal.

Carol, Karen & I went out to dinner; Karen is feeling much as I was, but she doesn't have the history. I changed into a dress (the first time this summer!) and my crocheted cardigan and we went to the Keg, where I had lovely sirloin Oscar (steak with Bechamel, scallops and shrimp) and we drank a bottle of Zinfandel (C & I; K was driving her cute little red Mazda, whose interior matched all my black trimmed with red leather stuff). We had a wonderful waiter and a very pleasant meal, after which we went to the bar at the Marriott for a drink before Carol had to get back to Mount Pearl as Sandy was due in from Corner Brook.

Interestingly, we ran into Angela's husband at the Marriott; the restaurant he works for had just taken over the restaurant concession there. Which is sad because the original kitchen was interesting but I guess it was never busy enough. I liked the quiet, when I ate there, and they had a good bar - the bartender there introduced me to Tanqueray No 10. Tonight, they not only didn't have that, the bartender tonight didn't even offer me a choice of gins, I had to catch his attention to get the Bombay Sapphire over the generic shit and then it turned out he didn't have any tonic - or even soda. I ended up with gin & 7-up.

Had a long chat to Dad after I got home & fell asleep on the sofa watching Law & Order.
