Superbowl Sunday

Musing Mondays2

This week’s musing asks:

Did you do any reading in lieu of watching the football game, yesterday, or were you foregoing reading to watch the game? If you read a book (or books) what did you choose?

I have never been a big fan football, except for the Cal games. Since 49ers lost I didn’t pay attention to Superbowl. I avoided people’s conversations on the Superbowl and avoided all the places where people might discuss, talk, and watch the game. My friend and I had long made plan to have dinner at this Spanish restaurant named El Patio Espaňol. We were promptly seated at five and for the entire duration of our delicious dinner, which consisted of Calamares Fritos (fried calamari), Solomillo a la Andaluza (Grilled Filet Mignon Sautéed with Garlic, Mushrooms, Peppers and Tomatoes in a Sherry Wine Sauce ), and Pollo al Jerez (Breast of Chicken in a Sherry Cream Sauce), we were the only diners. We had the whole restaurant and staff to ourselves. As for reading, up until the dinner engagement, I continued reading The Falls by Joyce Carol Oates since the book was taking more time than I anticipated. Oh, I also watched snippets of the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet.

  1. I was on Twitter for a bit, listening to funny comments about halftime.

    Then I went to bed early and read Kino, a really odd but fascinating little book.

  2. Puppy Bowl!! Good choice, sir.

  3. I’ve found that Superbowl Sunday is a great day to go out to eat because as you point out, the restaurants aren’t nearly as busy. P.S. I love the Puppy Bowl and watched a bit of it myself!
