One thing I enjoy about making afternoon court appearances in Orange County is meeting my pals down yonder for happy hour afterward. This time, we met at the Irvine Spectrum, where 10Years confessed her childhood fear of carousels.
You know that weird kid who preferred sitting on the stationary bench instead of riding a horse that moved up and down? Yup. That was 10Years.
With its amazing half off deals, Maki Maki was the perfect place to catch up with Bizarro-Merry-Go-Round-Phobia-Girl, APK, and LYB.
After sushi, we bid farewell to APK, and the three of us went in search of dessert. On the way, we passed the Ferris wheel. I forgot to ask if 10Years was scared of that, as well.
Crepe Maker, which I thought was a fabulous idea.
It was such a fabulous idea that I forgot to snap a photo before digging in. The three of us shared a Nutty Caramel Apple (apples, dulce de leche, and walnuts) and a Black and White (Nutella and bananas).
Trust me -- it tasted a lot better than it looks half-eaten.
Seeing these girls was the perfect ending to my very good day. (That's not-so-subtle code for "I won my hearing. w00t!")
