the fridayfive gal must work with taxes.. she won’t be back til next friday. i realized, while driving into work this morning, that i’ve had my labret pierced for 10 years now. that made me feel old. not old enough to take it out, though.
kurt has off again tomorrow so i think we’re going to try to go to the safe house in milwaukee for some eats. it’s this weird place where you have to know the password to get in and if you don’t, they make you do something funny. workmate says it’s like maxwell smart spy-like inside. kurt claims to know the secret password; i hope he’s right.


i’ve been so lamz0r with my entries. i haven’t been doing a whole lot of knitting, or much of anything, really. i did sign up for jim’s yoga class at the co-op, starting this sunday and it goes for 6 weeks. i got a couple other people to join in the fun, too! kurt won’t though, cuz it’ll interrupt texas hold ’em. :/

monday, monday

we had a pretty good weekend! kurt was off on saturday, so we thought we’d go check out the local casino, ho-chunk. it was pretty boring, for me, because it’s chock full of slots and only a handful of video poker machines. kurt played blackjack, lost a bunch on craps, and then came out even. i, on the other hand, wasn’t so lucky. then we went to our favorite sushi restaurant whose last day of business was saturday. the owners are retiring and getting out of the food biz. :(
sunday was slow going. we went to the avenue for breakfast, after we were able to move around, then we played another marathon session of texas hold ’em at bob and amy’s. i came in 3rd, after mentally conceding cuz it had been 5 hours of cards. now it’s monday. and i’m at work. :/


it’s been a long week. thankfully, it’s over.
there’s no fridayfive again.. so i pulled one out of her archives.
1. Where were you born (city or state or just country)?

2. What is your favorite number?
hmm. i don’t think i really have a favorite number?
3. Vanilla or chocolate?
if i’m being forced to choose, vanilla.
4. What section of a bookstore would I find you in?
either design or used.
5. What kind of mattress do you have on your bed? soft? firm? water?
a futon mattress on the floor.
sorry i haven’t been blogging about knitting lately. i haven’t been interested in knitting. i think maybe i should pick up crocheting?


with my amazon gift certificate from mom, i bought a bunuch of new music to add to the iPod. i sill have 7.4 gigs to fill up before i have to start getting particular about what’s included in my musical repertoire. dang, i got busy at work so i can’t make this entry any longer.


we’re kinda inbetween updates right now at work.. so i found some new photoshop brushes and made some art for my cube. looky here!

what a great birthday!

i had so much fun over the weekend. we had a really nice brunch at the nauti-gal on sunday morning, and then kurt and i had a delicious dinner at restaurant magnus on sunday night. and yesterday we were the only two people in the whole theater while seeing eternal sunshine of the spotless mind. it was the best movie i’ve seen in a really long time. then many gracious people proceeded to buy me shots at the tavern. i shoulda taken today off, too. :)


we’re gunna go see eternal sunshine of the spotless mind today. dinner last night was totally yummy. we were there for ~2.5 hours.


it’s so nice out and i can’t think of anything to do. so i’m doing three loads of laundry. i need some new music to fill up my iPod.
