What a Weekend!


I had a great weekend. Saturday it was 55 degrees here and I got to ride my motorcycle in to Mosaic. Purl came in too! She really is the cutest little puppy. Anyway, I ended up taking a ride over to the New River. It's gorgeous! I love water. That sounds weird, but it wasn't that long ago that I was doing stream ecology research. The worst part was I had to drive on gravel. You try balancing a 300 pound piece of equipment on gravel! Not fun, not fun at all.

I meant up with Cassie, my ex-roommate and best friend (it's my sister in the photo not Cassie I'll post one of her later), to see Volver at the Lyric. It was nominated for a few Oscars and I guess I was expecting a lot. It was good, but not fabulous. I really didn't think Penelope Cruz was that great in it either. Actually, I thought she was sort of flat. We ate some Cajun food and I had a great beer. If you like dark beer, try Road Dog it's made by flying dog. Extremely good winter beer.

Then this morning Cassie and I went to my favorite restaurant for breakfast. Gillie's! It's absolutely delicious and a vegetarian restaurant too! After that I cleaned my kitchen. Those of you who know me well understand how unusual that is. And I really cleaned it, I even mopped. I know my Uncle Tony, Mom, and sister will be proud. There are a lot of people in my family that are neat freaks, but I didn't get the gene. I'm kind of a mess really. The whole kitchen is spotless however!

My weekend was finished with some sushi, kobe, a nice riesling, ben and jerry's, and Shopgirl. On top of all that the ground is covered in snow, so I know I have a happy boss! I feel completely ready for the week to come.

Dave and I were planning on seeing "Volver" tonight, but I've changed my mind. I only wanted to see it if it was amazing. I won't waste my time. I'd rather see "40 year old virgin" for the 467th time on TV instead!
ps...Mimi hates Lizard Ridge now...

Did you go to Gillie's on Sunday? I was there today (Monday) for b'fast...love that Chappie's! ...and you are both crazy with Lizard Ridge! I'm afraid and staying away!! I'm so slow with it, so you'll probably have two afghans before I have one!

I just saw Van's Laberenth. I KNOW i am speeling that wrong. Its at the NRV Mall and I REALLY liked it. You should see it. If you dont mind the subtitles, it was really "different". I am still thinking about it. Its been a while since a movie stuck in my head that long.
PS- DOnt tell LIzard ridge how I feel... its a secret. I am trying to give her attention.
