The Office
First watch, 5 bells (10:53 pm)

Tonight Lorien and I drove over to The Office, a new(er) restaurant in Post Falls. I was skeptical, especially when the sign outside says "Bistro Pub and Martini Bar". Anyway, the food was a little pricey, but quite good. The waitress staff was very friendly, and the chef even came out to our table to ask how everything was. I haven't had that pleasure before, and it was nice. I had a nightly special, grilled halibut, it was a little under $17, but quite a big piece of fish. To be totally honest, I expected it to be smaller. For some reason, the "bistro" name comes with higher prices and smaller servings. The menu wasn't really big, but had enough selections to choose from. The dessert menu was in the waitresses head (there were only three items). Lorien had some very good linguine noodles in a soup with some clams and bread all around the bowl—the bread was awesome.

Overall, I have to say the food was great, but I won't be going back soon because the menu wasn't huge. I certainly recommend it for a night out for a couple that's looking for a new restaurant. The Office is located where the old Momiji's Japanese food place used to be, right behind The White House (the garlic-smelling restaurant right off the freeway in Post Falls).

One of the perks of being a married guy is you get your dinner, plus a little taste of what your wife gets.

My Bees, Part Two
First watch, 5 bells (10:44 pm)

Remember my bees from the other day? Well, they moved back in! That bee spray sure didn't poison the nest like it advertised. I bought some more spray on my way home tonight, climbed up once again onto the ladder and sprayed those stinking wasps. They fell dead pretty quick, and I really soaked the nest good. There were a bunch of larva sacks under the nest where they dropped down to the ground. Despite the "don't remove nest for 24 hours" line in the directions, I decided to evict the squatters (hey, they weren't paying me rent!) and knocked down the nest with a 10 foot piece of PVC pipe I had lying about.

The nest was half full of more larva in the cones, and yes, JM, I'll get you a picture. Although now the nest isn't as impressive after I blasted the shell off the other day. I hosed the nest down with the rest of the can of spray after it hit the ground to make sure anything left in it was dead dead dead.
