There was meaty geeky Labor Day at merlinofchaos and esmerel's place today. Meaty, because first Merlin brought out the pulled pork, and that was mighty good. And then he produced the tri-tip, which was awesome. And then denyse and evilmagnus produced hamburgers from some chichi meat shop in the Stanford shopping center, and they were The Best Burgers Ever. I only had a bite because I was so stuffed, but they weren't mere burgers, they were luscious chunks of subtly spiced heaven.
The geeky part was that while we were eating and chatting, we all watched Esmerel go oldskool and play FF VII. Chocobo breeding!
