Last weekend we went out to a Japanese restaurant with some friends. The chef had a lot of fun making a "volcano" out of a stack of sliced onions.

The meat was delicious. I had beef, and some of the others had shrimp and scallions.

Ross and Evert enjoyed the meal very much.

Monica, Ashley, Carmen. Carmen is being silly in front of the camera. She's happy -- really. She should be; she's the one who "earned" the dinner for us. She and Ross played "best two out of three" Connect Four several months ago. Since Carmen won, Ross took us out for dinner. If Ross had won, she would have had to bake Ross cookies every month for a year.

I'm on the left, with Terri, showing off our expertise with chopsticks.
