this past Sunday, i mulched the flowerbed behind our patio, trimmed the hedges in front of the house, finished retouching the lemon wreath i made last year, and made lemon-coconut cupcakes. i couldn't be more suburban unless i finished the afternoon off by sitting on my porch with a glass of fresh lemonade or sweet tea. there's always next week.
last week, we finally brought renji to the groomers for a much needed haircut. unfortunately, it was required that he be completely shaved. so now he is literally only half the dog that he once was. or less even. instead of a white poof ball of a dog, he now sorta resembles santa's little helper. also here's some good advice, beware the yahoo image search and don't search for "santa's little helper" on it.
friday night/saturday night celebrated some of our good friends birthdays (birthday twins! triplets including peter).. with dinner on friday at Americas and a night out on saturday at Hue. (note to all: Hue is no longer the place to be on Saturday night... unless you like cougars.)
we went to see 300. the hubby has been awaiting to see this since it came out, i on the other hand didn't think too much of it. i'd have to say that i highly recommend it. ph34r t3h ab parade! i found the way it was filmed awesome to the max (not in the sarcastic way), and gerald butler as leonidas was remarkable. i was fully entertained throughout the film. ofcourse i never read the comic, but i did happen to take more than one greek history class in college. after returning home, i think i wikipedia'd for approximately 3.5 hours, starting with the battle of thermopylae.
This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.
