Uzbekistan Rocket Sundaes without Almonds

Hello. How are you? I'm doing fine. My elbow hurts. Ouch.

Ahem. Anyway, last night I ventured into Queens with some EXCELLENT company to try a restaurant called Samarkand, an Uzbeki eatery. How was it? Good. The kebabs were very good (there was sea bass, lamb, beef, other types). We got some other things which were not as good but fine. I also had a tarragon soda that was bright green and tasted like cream soda. Overall, an interesting experience.

Help! Green soda!

Help! Pickled vegetables!

Help! Kebabs!

Afterwards we walked a little bit and ended up in a developed area of Forest Hills. It was great. There was a Pizzeria Uno, a Hagan Daaz, a movie theater, and perhaps best of all, a Johnny Rockets! We went into Johnny Rockets and had some Sundaes!

I got mine without almonds because supposedly I'm allergic to them, but I'm very much regretting that decision

I wanted to just move to Forest Hills right then and there. Forget this Manhattan crap. I want to live in a bigger and nicer apartment and just go to Johnny Rockets every night and then go to the movie theater. Granted, it only has one screen -- currently playing Mamma Mia -- but whatever. After eating three sundaes and a malted milkshake, I doubt it would make much of a difference.
