Thats What She Said

I'm supposed to be doing something else right now.

Monkey Tree, Monkey Do May 21, 2007

Filed under: *Cheese; Or, Stuff That's Good — thats what she said @ 12:48 pm


Sunday afternoon, at the recommendation of Kit Kat, T-Bone, Dr. Jones, Kit Kat herself and I trekked out to Vashon Island for a little good eatin’.  Quite how good it turned out to be was a surprise to all of us—except for Kit Kat, of course, who exactly how good it would be.


So good in fact, that we all felt sort of drunk by the time we finished our entrees.  People, I think we were actually HIGH ON LIFE, which is embarrassing to admit, but when you are, in fact, HIGH ON LIFE, you have little concern for such things as dignity.  And all of this before we’d even had dessert.  Oh sweet lord the dessert.   

I would have been pleased with the grilled cheese alone.  I mean, when someone brings you a big plate of this:


you immediately start looking around for St. Peter, because surely you must be in heaven.  Honestly, it was the best grilled cheese I’ve ever had.  The rest of the ladies were equally enamored of their choices.   

We followed it all up with these little pieces of paradise:


You might be wondering if four such dainty ladies as ourselves could really handle so much sugary goodness after eating such a large and enjoyable lunch.



I think you should probably go to the Monkey Tree right now.  You get to take a ferry!  And if you are really charming, as we four must have been, you might even leave with a free piece of cake.  That’s right people, FREE CAKE.  FOUR FREE PIECES OF FREE CAKE.  I mean, really.  It’s enough to remind you that there is some good in the world after all.  Perhaps it’s all confined to Vashon Island, but hey, at least it exists.

Thanks Monkey Tree—I haven’t laughed that hard while eating cheese in a really long time.  A rare feat, since I find most cheeses hilarious.

And thanks girls.  You sure are making it hard to leave. 

And thanks to the Dad—for providing the means to the visuals.  Hopefully you won’t regret it in the coming months when I am posting pictures of various infections. 

And now, in what could quite possibly the WORST SEGUE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD, some contact info:

    That was seriously one of the best days I’ve had in a long time. I’m so glad you guys enjoyed this place as much as I did! I wasn’t sure if it would live up to all my hype, but it did and then some. And those are some great photos, by the way.
