the only earth?

two day habit.

Friday -
almost completely standard afternoon: went to work, had a burrito at el rey, on the way home I attempted to contain spending behavior at the Nordstrom anniversary sale. At night: trying to make a plan with Rachel to see the Jayhawks. I didn't know anything about this band (except that tickets were expensive), but she wanted to go. When the scheduling didn't work we went to dick's and tried to be authentic, dining on her car watching the spinning sign and the VW club and the teens in the parking lot. I returned home full of unhealthy foods to watch AI with the housemates. I still hate the ending of that movie, but Halley Joel Osment kind of saves it.

Saturday -
Assembled some more furniture, moved books to shelves, went to fremont to browse the used rack at sonic boom (bright eyes, of montreal, camper van beethoven) and the magazine stand. Dinner was sushi picnic in Manguson park until sunset, then back to the house to make plans. We waited around, trying to synchronize schedules. When that failed, we decided to end the night with gelato on Queen Anne. FYI: along with other tasty flavors, Dolce Vita makes a great mojito sorbet.

these ridiculous sundays

and this morning I watched news shows and played tetris attack until I noticed some more vines that required cutting. Without any other pressing responsibilities, I felt compelled to walk to the U-District to pick up the Sunday Times and sit on the porch at Solstice reading the paper and drinking iced beverages.

When I returned to the house, we all sat around watching Sex & Lucia on the DVD. I have no idea.

Later, I thought it would be fun to push the human-powered lawn mower around the back yard while waiting for laundry. I was completely enjoying the experience until I was attacked by wasps. Thwarted, I went inside to examine the damage--which was pretty minor--and took a benadryl (which left me feeling spaced out).

Now: reading Radar (finally found at Tower), eating dinner, and contemplating lawn tickets for radiohead. That is, trying to decide whether it's worth trying to get tickets through other channels to get closer than the lawn.
