UI: I forgot about the waiting period. TWO WEEKS WITH NO INCOME, BOO YA!
In other news, Reg and I spent the weekend with his friend Mars (whose LJ name I don't currently know), one of his oldest LJ friends whom he's never met in person before. We picked her up from the Clipper around 8:30 and went to the Edgewater for drinks and dinner, and wow, that place has barely changed at all since 2002. Which is kind of awesome really. I am sort of anti-hipster in all ways except currently having no money, so I like white sheens and ambient/downtempo DJs and $7 custom cocktails and Kobe sliders. I blame hotcrab
for introducing me to the yuppie lifestyle at just the time I could afford it.
But anyway it was fun, although I felt kind of bad later due to mixing booze with other things, and kind of passed out when we got home. Sunday was a full day of shopping. I wanted to get a daypack with my REI dividend, and then we went to Pike Place Market where there was shopping to be had and done and I don't think I've ever seen so much money spent there ever before. Well, ok, I guess Reg always spends $50 at any comic book store, and likewise at head shops, but usually not the same day. We also bought "art", which I think that my artist friends could easily surpass but maybe they have loftier ambitions than sitting in a stall at the Market. Oh, and Asian pears are $1 each. Got two!
Anyway we then walked to Westlake and I saw more money spent at Lush, which just makes my new resolve to really go into DIY beauty all the firmer. (I started doing this
already.) Then we went upstairs to the ultimate food court, had lunch, and I suggested that before returning to Ballard, we should indulge in some Dilettante choco-goodness. We got a slice of this flourless mocha-choco-cake dealie, which went perfectly with a latte. Om nom nom.
So then we made it home and relaxed a while then walked around Ballard a bit. Our original intention was to get a neck gaiter
like mine for Mars, since she has dreads and could use it as an open-top hat, BUT Second Ascent sold them all. Boo. But I bought some lemon oil at Dandelion Botanicals, and Reg got MORE CANDLES, so our place smelled nice when we returned.
We made plans to meet up with ashlin519
for dinner, since we missed the party Saturday, and went to Belltown Pizza at 7:30 or so. I always forget how damn good their pizza is. It was good to see her, we caught up on stuff, and then brought her up to Cap Hill and came home and tried to get my hookah to work. FINALLY did it with judicious applications of lighter fluid. Apple tobacco is nice. Anyway I pretty much blew my social wad so I then read and passed out.
