    Well, I took your recommendation and tried Fenton's!

    (Couldn't order the crab melt; turns out it was prohibitively expensive! :( )

    So what did you order? Did you try any of their ice creams?

    Stay healthy - eat right, exercise, get regular checkups, don't let little problems get out of hand. My biggest regret is not doing this, because it's caused me no end of discomfort.

    *blush* I didn't end up ordering anything. :( I had every intention to, but when I saw the prices, I....eep.

    But one of my friends actually bought us a pint of ice cream to share between us, and that ended up working out great. We got...I think it was the chocolate peanut butter kind. And I sampled one of their coffee flavors; also great. :)

    I'd definitely like to go back sometime and try the crab melt in the (hopefully more financially stable) future. It was a pretty nice place!

    The best thing about this advice is that it applies to everything. Especially my previous piece of advice:

    I just wanted to say, this is awesome.

    I've always wanted to make an afghan. I've got the technique down, now it's just a matter of stocking up on yarn and time. :D

    Call a dear friend and tell them you love them, guy or gal. Friends deserve to know how important they are even if they blush and feel a little uncomfortable about it.

    Friends make the world go 'round and many are taken for granted.

    When I finished the latest (a really simple traditional granny), I realized that some of the yarn I've been moving with me around the country for the last 40 years.

    It was kind of nice to finally use it! ;)

    Next up, a crazy quilt from worn-out cashmere pullovers that I've felted.

    ETA: You can take a long time to finish an afghan or a quilt. Square by square, piece by piece. :)

    But more importantly: don't take yourself too seriously.

    I gotta admit the crab melt is quite pricy. Might I add that when a supervisor at work decided to treat us out to lunch over there, most of my colleagues ordered the crab melt, possibly the most expensive item on the menu. :)

    My one recommendation would be to live like you were dying. Live each day to the fullest you can.

    Feel what you feel and help/let others do the same. During times of trouble it's fashionable to admire people who 'keep a stiff upper lip' and 'stay strong'. Thing is, just as you may need a shoulder to cry on, the person near you may, too. As Spider Robinson wrote (paraphrasing), "Shared joy is increased and shared pain is decreased".

    Probably some seafood dish with melted cheese on it.

    Aye, pretty much. It's got Dungeness crab with your choice of cheese and toasted bread.
