I Can Only Hold My Balls For So Long.......

Believe it or not, I was up by 7am after only a couple hours of sleep...ready to head down to Milpitas to meet Julz (MzJulz85) and Lee (Askmrlee) for Dim Sum. I logged online to check messages and get directions and OMG..Trino (JTrinoG) had messaged me back on Myspace and was going to join us for breakfast in addition to sightseeing adventures in San Francisco! *YEAH*. I was excited to meet Trino as we've messaged and talked about getting together but never made it yet.
I texted Mel to see if she was awake....no response. I called...no answer. Ok, I am going in! LOL.
We actually arrived first for once...OMG! I am usually the late one but for once, we were on time! Trino had called and he was on his way but about 20 minutes behind. No biggie since we were the first ones to arrive. Next, Julz came in and wow....she looked great! I hadn't seen her since she went back to dark hair and although she knows I love the blonde in front, she looked GREAT! We caught up for a bit until Mel's cousin arrived and we went ahead and got our table, thinking Trino would be there any minute.
The Dim Sum carts started rolling around and we were STARVING...we went ahead and ordered a few things while I texted Trino to find out where he was. Come to find out, he left his wallet at home and had to turn around. Sorry Trino but how does a man leave the house without their wallet?!?! LOL. He said to go ahead and eat and he'd be there as soon as he could. Ok, we had already ordered some food so no problem there! :-) Mel and Lee were kinda in charge of picking and when the more odd items came around like chicken feet and pork belly, Lee and Mel were in heaven. Not sure what Julz and I were thinking but ok....let's try these chicken feet! LOL. It was a first....and a last for both of us. But hey, we got a picture for prosperity sake! There were a few things Julz tried that she didn't like and well, Melanie was basically her garbage disposal and ate the rest of everything she didn't like.
OMG..I was looking around laughing and I catch a glimpse of Trino walking in! *YEAH* Poor Trino, I didn't know he had never been to Dim Sum before and he asked the waiter for a menu and we told him there was plenty of food there already. I felt bad that I didn't ask him if he'd been so we kinda walked him through and ordered a few more things to eat. Julz doesn't eat seafood and Mel and Lee both have shrimp allergies so why does it figure most every cart that came around was shrimp related! Shrimp balls, shrimp rolls, shrimp salad! I felt like Forest Gump!
As we were sitting there talking, somehow the subject of Boba tea came up.
Ok, Boba time! We go to walk outside the restaurant and wow is it packed! Lee had said earlier he couldn't believe he was eating dim sum at 10am but it's a darn good thing we did otherwise we'd be there for hours waiting judging by how packed it was! We wander over to the Boba place and wow....it was like a 10 minute decision on what to order.
Originally, Julz was only meeting us for breakfast as she was taking her nephew and his friend to lunch and the movies. I think she was going to miss us too much but she talked to her nephew and he was down to go into San Francisco as well and hang out.
Said our goodbyes and hopped on the freeway, Trino following Mel and I. Caravan time! Whoo Hoo......Part II of the day to follow in the San Francisco blog!
