Full of Chianti and Conversation

My Las Madres play group had a Mother’s Night Out event — dinner at Pasta Pomodoro. Of the 31 members, seven of us attended, and we had a yummy dinner with good gab. The conversation focused on the usual at first — How old is your child? Does she sleep through the night? and so on. Soon enough, though, it moved on to trading stories about where we’re from, what we did for work before motherhood, favorite shows (Dr. Who, the new Battlestar Galactica), other good places to eat, ideas for other MNO events. The meal was leisurely, and I got home at 9:30.

Off to my bed!

    Are you watching Doctor Who? Are you? Forget Calgone–TARDIS take me away! (In a pinch I’d settle for Captain Jack–that’s Harkness, not Sparrow, thank you very much.)

    Fantastic!

    Sorry to disappoint, but no. There was much discussion of the new Dr. Who and all that, and it went past me. Battlestar Galactica, on the other hand, I could relate to. 🙂

    Well, I’d like to watch Battlestar Galactica, but I don’t get cable. The Doctor we watch on DVD, which I could do with BG but I don’t have time for that much TV. Did anyone there mention Torchwood?
