it ended up being a much fuller day than i had anticipated. lolo came over and we headed out to spiral, home of the shpdoinkle and other delicacies. only i didn’t get the shpdoinkle–lolo and i split some cashew cheeze & chips and a bbq seitan potato. i highly recommend it. i also highly recommend saving a little of the cheeze for your potato, because it will give you a foodgasm. i’m just sayin’.
and then it was off to the movie. lolo hadn’t seen paranormal activity yet, and i certainly didn’t object to seeing it again. what i did object to were the punk-ass teenyboppers, too young to be actually attending the movie, who felt free to text and jabber throughout the whole movie. my irish was rising. i asked the kids next to me two or three times to please be quiet. i was so angry i was ready to stand up and holler for the whole theatre to shut the f up. when we left the auditorium i went straight to a manager to complain. he seemed very incompetent, wanting to know what i wanted him to do. um, his job? there will be letter writing. oh, yes, there will be letter writing.
then i dropped lolo off to get her car and go home, and i went to half price books. and domino’s, where i got my new favourite non-schlotzky’s non-amy’s pizza: thin & crispy crust, no cheese, regular sauce, with mushrooms, peppers, black olives & spinach.
now i’m home. part of the pizza is eaten. the books are at my side, ready to be read. i can’t promise i’ll manage to stay up all night reading, but i’ll do my best. a chance to work on the rip challenge as well as the readathon.
now, for photo goodness:
the robot at spiral is ready for halloween
so is elvis. he’s doing his best captain jack imitation.
here’s lolo, with her new squeeze, jack pumpkinhead.
did somebody say oogave watermelon cream soda? i think i drank 3 glasses full. it’s seriously good stuff.
we start with the cashew cheeze, which is just indescribably delicious before moving on to the entree:
bbq seitan potato. the picture’s not very good, but the potato is. i recommend dunking bits of potato in the leftover cheeze. all delivered to our table by our favourite happy server:
so peace out, read long and prosper. here’s zen frog wishing you a zen evening:
i’ll be back in about an hour to blupdate!!
