Friday: A family fun drive to Mt. Rainier, where we stopped to look at scenic views, had lunch at the inn in Paradise. We returned to the city, had Pagliacci's, then Sarah & I went to see Carissa's Wierd at the Crocodile where we met Ellen & Ben and bought matching T-shirts. As usual, Carissa's Wierd were incredible; I didn't really like Hypatia Lake, and the Terror Sheets were pretty good.

Saturday: For one last family activity, we met for breakfast, then for bubble tea before sending them off to the airport. I watched Comedian, and skipped our department party to go to Amber's white and off-white baby shower. It was excellent, a bit of a cult appearance mixed with heaven? Using only sight & smell, I was runner-up in a contest to identify unlabeled baby foods.

After a quick nap, it was off to Jade Pagoda. The weather permitted patio seating, and we had the strangest waiter ever. He took our credit cards before taking our order, brought the food and drinks in an unspecified order, and was just very flustered because he was taking care of the whole restaurant.

On the way out, we were disappointed to learn that the unnamed bar across the street is really part of another restaurant.


Is this the second baby shower you've been to?

(I had the word like in there but took it out as I'm trying to rid it from my vocab. go me!)
in my life? I think I've been to three.

for Amber? the other one was a birthday party, but I bought a baby shower gift because I didn't know about the upcoming baby shower. Actually, the baby shower planning may have started at the birthday party. So I can see how it could be confusing.
My favorite part about the waiter was him bringing my drink while I was racing home to get my ID. I don't think the liquor board would appreciate that very much.

I wish Carissa's Wierd had played more old stuff.

Do you have any of the Jenn Ghetto solo/side projects cds? I hear you can't get them anymore.
I was actually pretty pleased with the mix of old and new, given the usual tendency of bands to play only new songs. Particularly because only their new CD is on Sad Robot. I don't know if Brown Records even exists anymore.

I don't have either of her side projects (S and Crictor). I think they used to sell them at Cellophane Square. Maybe they have some left?


My favorite part was that he never checked Kailin's ID.
