Just Below Conscious Detection

Another weekend has gone by in a blur. Friday night the little man stayed over with his grandparents so I took advantage of it, despite my exhaustion. J and I saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (not bad, but the Alfonso CuarĂ³n directed one is the best of the bunch so far). We then tried to have dinner at Singapore but it was closed. Permanently. Instead we doubled back to eat at Mysore Cafe (which is now buffet only on Friday nights, and kinda pricey). After dinner I needed a little nap. Unfortunately I slept right through Whitejazz’s set at the Turf Club. Doh. But I did stay to socialize - and to see Signal to Trust - so it wasn’t a complete loss.

Saturday’s start was less than stellar. Woken up by the plumber after about four hours of sleep, so that I could pay him $430 to install a gas shut off valve on my oven. Hot. At least the little man came home not long after that. Somehow I got J to join us for the Art Car Parade, along with our niece and her folks. Post-parade saw much lounging at J’s place, then a quick stop on the way home to pick up Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Which I’ve already finished reading. And no, I didn’t get out of my pajamas today. Or do much of anything else really. And I am ok with that. Especially since my shark week has begun. Yet again.

Bonus: Dang, I want this Inigo Montoya t-shirt.
Plus: The Hello Experiment. Brilliant.
And: QoTD from the little man: “when he is with the girl he is peeing stars” - referring to something in Gimme Gimme Octopus. Not sure if that makes it better or worse.

    My weekends have gone by in a blur lately, too. What the hey. Stop moving so fast, Life.

    BTW, I touched a tiger shark today. At the Milwaukee Zoo. Felt like plastic. Know what felt way, way worse? The stingray. Like mossy, watery awfulness. :)

    The Singapore in South Minneapolis is closed permanently?

  3. Chel - it seemed to be. The property looked awfully vacant.

    Emily - for reals. Dang, I haven’t been to Milwaukee in ages. I’d love to have a Moldarama machine of my very own.
