beet juice looks like blood

Walked to work and stopped at Bauhaus to read since the coffee and views are better than at my office. I didn't get much done though. They were playing bad music. At the end, it was U2, which isn't necessarily bad, just not good for reading about statistics.

The afternoon was for meetings and trying to get my iBook to connect to the not exactly network printer. I tried bringing a USB cable, but it was too short and didn't seem to allow me to print double sided, which is the whole point.

On the way home, I went to Fred Meyer. It was really a strange experience, because I didn't realize how much of the store there was in the Broadway Market.

When I got back to the apartment, it was time to go upstairs to Chris's apartment for a juice party. She had just bought a juicer and had people over to turn their fruits and vegetables into liquid form. Many tasty (and some not so tasty) beverages were prepared while fruit and vegetable movies played: Veggie Tales,1 What's Eating Gilbert Grape, and Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.

(1) Jonah as an asparagus? vegetables playing cards without hands? pirates?


When my brother and I were kids we used to rent Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes like once a month, much to my mother's dismay. But now I can't even remember what it was about, even though we watched it so many times. Well, obviously I know it's about killer tomatoes, but I don't know what else. And I feel like there was a sequel that we also rented, and that maybe George Clooney was in it...this is sooo weird, I hadn't thought about that movie in years.
Unfortunately I was distracted by the real life juicing and didn't fully appreciate the merits of Killer Tomatoes, but I can see how kids could become obsessed with it. The parts that I saw lead me to believe that it was intentionally one of the worst movies of all time.
That is definitely true...it was horribly bad, but they meant it to be which is what made it so good. The sequel was even worse/better.

hahaha i love it! that is such a cute shindig
By the end of the party we discovered that vodka has one of the most favorable volume:juice ratio!
