Yesterday there was an article about mock meats, in general, in the Minneapolis Star Tribune…with a photo of fake shrimp at Evergreen Taiwanese Restaurant, one of our favorite veg-friendly spots about town. We’re happy any time they get press, even if it means they’re busier the next time we stop by for a meal, because we hope it helps to ensure their longer-term survival. The restaurant business is such a tricky one. Long live Evergreen!
I am a sucker for both Cameron Crowe movies and Orlando Bloom, in general, so there is no way I am not going to see Elizabethtown. But The Squid and the Whale looks interesting too. And the Sound Unseen Film Festival opens this weekend. And I still have to get round to seeing Corpse Bride and Thumbsucker. And then there’s A History of Violence. But this weekend, of course, is all about the long-awaited Wallace and Gromit full length feature film. Fun for the whole family. Yay!
Now, with the weather turning bitterly cold and properly Fall-like, I’ll somehow feel less guilty about curling up with a good book. Just finished Neil Gaiman’s latest the other night. It was a good read and very, very…Neil. But now I need something else. Suggestions?
Bonus: Lala went to Chicago and took some fabulous photos and then took polaroids of them. That only makes me love her more.
Plus: The little man was a little under the weather yesterday, so we had a stay home day. By afternoon he was feeling better, and had switched gears from his Candyland obsession. Instead it was all Tic Tac Toe Three-in-a-Row all the time. He must have gone through a ream of paper. Color construction paper. Sigh.
And: The husband is soooo bleeding edge. I saw this image on one of his monitors long before boing boing posted about it. Gawd, we’re such geeks. Good thing we’re going on vacation next week, to get away from it all. But how many laptops are we taking?
