Anyway, this past weekend was tolerable. Nice, even. Friday night was comprised of wine and baba ghanouj at La Bocca, and $4.50(!) Jack-and-Diet-Cokes at Yucca Tap Room(whilst surrounded by indie scenester clones). on Saturday, we headed to Malee's Thai Bistro, in old town Scottsdale. the rule here is: order anything with curry, and you're set. unfortunately, I bypassed that rule and ordered a salad which was supposed to come with edamame and rice noodles, but instead was composed of largely wilted lettuce and slimy 'grilled chicken'. disgusting. sent it back, and opted for some (extremely bland) mussels and a side of steamed veggies(which happened to be the best 'dish' I ordered, once I added some of the curry from J's duck dish).
and, on Sunday, we dropped our laundry off at J's parents' house and saw '9', which turned out to be pretty darn good, if a teensy bit anticlimactic.
yesterday was a day of progress. we cleaned the house together--dishes, kitchen, bathroom, vacuuming, all 3 litterboxes, garbage--and then went out and bought my bike(a totally fantastic slate-silver Raleigh hybrid--pictures soon!) and dropped off several job applications(crossing my fingers for a kennel tech position at the local veterinary hospital!).
ah, well...my bike and I are off to Whole Foods for lunch, and Starbucks for my tall-decaf-no whip-cinnamon dulce-iced-Americano!
oh, and to keep the interest up until I can post recent photos, here are my little loves:
