God of Carnage

God of Carnage was hilarious. Cuttingly sardonic look at the polite manners we uphold and the reality of what we sometimes feel beneath it all. Splendidly acted by all four: Jeff Daniels, Marcia Gay Harden, James Gandolfini, and Hope Davis. Seeing them made the play 100% more entertaining, for me. I am a celeb gawker, and I would have stood outside for autographs (Saw Hope Davis signing), but I was with the royal princess of Sweden, and you know, well, we have to be sensitive to her need for security.

Here are some photos from the night...I warned you....food porn....

This was the cutest thing.
We saw at least 15 dogs being walked while we ate dinner.

Dinner was at Taboon,
which is the name of the oven used to cook the bread.
This was the delicious bread and Sweden's drink.

This was my appetizer, shrimp wrapped in kataifi, shredded phyllo dough. It was paired with the most delicious combination of fresh tomato, scallions, and mint with a light yogurt sauce.

Lamb Kebab or kofte. Not quite the way my former Turkish mother in-law used to make it, but delicious nonetheless. Over eggplant and tomatoes with that same lickable garlic yogurt.

My drink was called the Persian Kitty.
Meow baby. Bourbon and mint.
One sip and I was back in Kentucky watching the Derby.

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
