People: me with plumtreeblossom May 2007

Wonderful weekend!

plumtreeblossom and I have been having a wonderful weekend so far, with a fun PMRP work day painting some big pieces of Foley equipment, good food, a bad movie but with wonderful company, discovering a new neighbourhood near plumtreeblossom’s place, and a fabulous birthday party with an utterly spectacular birthday cake¹, a lovely and charming birthday boy and girl with very good taste in friends, lots of people we knew, lots of new people to meet, and excellent conversation. And now we’re about to run out for a pleasant breakfast. It’s a good weekend, and even the rain is kind of cozy-seeming.
¹ Flourless death-by-chocolate, topped with a layer of strawberries, a layer of tiramisù, and a layer of hard chocolate. I want to learn to make that. And then I want to become independently wealthy so I can hire people to make it for me and to cart me around in my wheelbarrow. It might have to be a double-wide.

I’m Dreaming of a White Hallowe’en

It’s October 18th. It’s snowing. Granted, it wasn’t snowing all afternoon; there was some freezing rain mixed in there, but now it’s just snowing. Whee! I’m very glad I decided to rent a Zipcar to do my huge grocery shop rather than just taking my little wire cart.

If all of you here weren’t so wonderful, I would seriously consider Hawai‘i.
