i tend to like lazy weekends.  they are my preference.  and more often than not, my reality.

however, some cosmic aligning of the stars is happening even as you read and i’m busy as fuck.

friday night i had the most amazing dinner with my good friend stacey at the posh cafe lurcat.  the company that owns lurcat is one of the premier caterer’s in the twin cities and as such, i use them a lot.  very nicely, they gave me a gift card for a nice amount to thank me for our business.  can i just say that it’s a lovely experience to be able to go out for a great dinner (including tasty kobe beef, which ain’t cheap) and not even consider money even a little bit?  now, i’m not rich, but i’m certainly not poor and i do try to live within some sort of a budget – but damn, you gotta love not sweating the almighty $ to enjoy some drinks and a great meal.

yesterday i had more work done on the neverending tattoo (i can see the light at the end of the tunnell tho’ thank god)… this time we were working on the inner arm near the elbow.  the area, well let’s just say, feels a bit like raw meat today.  to the eight auspicious symbols, the blowing lotus and cherry blossom flowers and the tibetan prayer flags already etched in my arm, we added a vajra (a tool that symbolically destroys all kinds of ignorance, and itself is indestructible).  check it out:


then last night, i had dinner with scott and saw the fantastic 4; rise of the silver surfer.  according to the movie’s own press, they realized they fucked up the first one and wanted to fix this one and make a movie the fan’s would like.  well, in my opinion, they failed again.  it was just poorly made, thudding dialogue, bad acting.  the special effects were great of course, and chris evan’s, well he’s just hot and so much fun to watch – but the movie on a whole sucked.  don’t waste your time or money.

the best part of the movie?  the brand-spankin’ new harry potter and the order of the pheonix trailer.  i love the books so much and phoenix is definatly one of my favorites.  july is going to be a great month; first the movie and then the final book.  i’m so excited to see how they translate that book to screen – if the trailer is any hint, they did a great job…


today, i’m off to the stone arch festival of the art’s where smartcar is showing (and more importantly allowing test drives) – i’m anxious to finally try one of these cars.  i love going to europe and seeing all the smartcar’s.  they’re stylish and most importantly, super eco-friendly.

then off to mom’s to help her for a bit.

then i have a meeting regarding ceremonies for the red ribbon ride.

then tonight, cb arrives for his job interview – dinner & drinks with him.

whew, i’m tired just typing it all out.  🙂
