The Weekend
Wednesday. Sasha & Kiddie got taken to the vet. The results? Pretty good blood chemistry for cats their age (17 and 11), but they both need some teeth pulled, Kiddie has a UTI (antibiotics), and Sasha is going on Amitriptyline.

Thursday. I went to see Belle de Jour at The Big Picture with intrepid_reason and her friends. I've got bits and pieces of a movie review, but I'll probably never pull it all together well enough to post it.

Friday. Fish Friday. Gorgous weather. We made white fish burgers on the grill. I delivered my bday present for elfs, a case of 2003 Norton from Stone Hill Winary. Eric H, formerly of the Metaphorist, turned me on to this stuff.

Saturday & Sunday. I was planning on spending the weekend sorting, tossing, boxing, and moving, but on the drive back up to my place, I instead gave sultry_peacock a call, asking if I could drop by and see her new haircut. solomoning and keithr were also there, and later also gipsieee. I ended up spending the weekend, enjoying their hospitality, helping with the cooking, knitting, and crashing on a guest bed.

Sunday evening I hooked back up with elfs and omahas, for a birthday celebration dinner for Elf. We opened the first bottle of Norton. It was very good, but it's not ready. The tasting notes say it should be drunk after at least five years.

My mom used to work as a bartender for The Big Picture a few months back. Funny enough it was Bill Gates that asked the manager, a good friend of his, if my mom could have the job. What happened to it? Her alcoholic husband threatened the manager and got her fired.

That is teh sux, I'm sorry.

Why do people put up with the fallout of drug-addled and alcoholic people?

I'm glad you're not under that roof.

I am a fan of the Big Picture. A theater for adults (not an "Adult Movie Theater" - tee hee!)
