Merry Christmas to you all.
MEAT MEAT MEAT That’s what’s available at Ipanema Brazilian Grill. Down where Wolfgang Puck’s used to be – we headed there for lunch today. It was sort of a special day – had some very unexpected news that deemed that it was time to take someone to lunch. So off we went. I’d been avoidingContinue reading “Ipanema Brazilian Grill”
It’s the end of saturday, and I can happily report that I haven’t done much of anything today. I shipped out a pile of Christmas packages, had some lovely green tea, and ate an awesome dinner with friends. And that is what counts as an incredible “not much of anything” day for me.
Tonight was a night to get out of the house. When I came home, Karen had clearly come down with a cold and wasn’t feeling well, which I thought would kill those plans for the night. But she sacked out really early and told me to go out anyway, so I spent most of theContinue reading “no fog…”
I wandered about the house sort of aimlessly this evening – Karen’s out at a holiday party. It wasn’t until recently that I actually looked outside though – and saw that it was a “dark and foggy night”. It immediately put my in mind of some lovecraftian horror story. Heh – yeah, perfect when you’reContinue reading “a dark and foggy night…”
Its monday – just barely. Hi Monday! Time for bed.
Today we saw Pride and Prejudice – the latest remake with Keira Knightley. They did a good job with it, but I’ve got to admit that I’ve was very spoiled by the BBC’s version of it. While I liked the acting a great deal, there was just so much more development of the characters inContinue reading “Movie weekend – Pride and Prejudice”
It was a very long day today, and I’m completely bushed. You know, one of those days that just leaves you completely drained… Even still, I wanted to write briefly that Karen and I took in Narnia tonight, and we both thought it was really well done. I’d been a little hesitant after the papersContinue reading “Narnia”
My favorite market ever has lost it’s lease. I’m so incredibly bummed about this. Apparently the owners of the land where Metropolitan Market has stood for 40 years have signed over the space to QFC and a big ole’ development, slated to be in place by the end of 2008. Metro Market’s lease ends DecemberContinue reading “Metropolitan Market, Queen Anne”
Last night I went to dinner at Toyoda Sushi with a friend, the first time I’d been there. We sat at the Sushi bar, and Sen (I’m probably mispelling his name) started serving us up a wonderful meal. I couldn’t even tell you what all of it was (I don’t track that fast), but oneContinue reading “Toyoda sushi”
