Last Night
When I walk into a big bookstore, my credit card winces. For good reason. Last night I walked into the B&N in Bellevue, and walked out with Home Buying for Dummies, and also with Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML: A Brain-Friendly Guide to HTML & CSS, DOM Scripting: Web Design with JavaScript and the Document Object Model, and Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference: A Complete Resource for HTML, CSS, DOM & JavaScript. I've gotten tired of knowing HTML only by osmosis, and of asking dumb questions of my patient modern HTML-savvy friends.

These books, of course, are now listed in my LibraryThing.

Then over to Bellevue Square mall, to Lush, to restock. I picked up more Rock Star and some more You Snap The Whip. And for the first time some Reincarnate solid shampoo. It's supposed to be really good for dark hair, but if it's henna starts to turn my bleached cowlick red, I'll quit and give it to someone else with dark or black hair.

Just as I was done with that transaction, and was considering where and what to eat, my phone rang from sierra_faye1. We met up, had dinner (the salad bar at the Whole Foods on Roosevelt, and then a nice hot soak.

I have several pints of Daddy-O. One bottle in the shower, and several more in storage. I've tried to get my mom to get my dad to use it, on his white hairs.

Thank you for linking the Snap the Whip--I spent my early years drinking Ribena, and have a serious thing for blackcurrant. Want want want.

The smell of YNtW is so so familiar to something in my childhood, but I cannot for the life of me remember what.

Huh, I think that B&N is where my boss got me all those .NET books. In the building next door, in the back, is an obsure little door that leads to another company that we rent some of their excess office space from.

Do you have some sort of a membership at Tubs?

Are you going to the Weird Food party tonight at the Haunted?

Wow, I didn't know they sold memberships - I thought it was always on a 'pay as you go' basis (and quite expensive at that). Food for thought.

How was the party?

The membership is $100/yr, and what it does is allow me to make a reservation (otherwise one just has to just show up and wait for an open slot. On a Friday or Saturday evening, that's a long wait). And it gives me a 30% discount on the fee. And a small pile of gift certificates each year.

Since I go more than once a month, it's worth it.



Oh, and the party was a lot of fun.
