yep, that's it! Frodo's little wonder. Superinkygrrl took this great photo, probably unintentionally, but still, a great photo. If you click on it, you'll be able to see it better and notice that his foot is actually moving blurry like.

Yay Frodo's cock!

tuesday - need lunch ideas - updated

second day of operation relax and get shit done.

i have been surfing and blogging now for 90 min. a little excessive i think, but fuck it, its my day off. i should be doing something productive, but i can't get my ass out of this chair. maybe i'll get on my bike and head up to freddy's for some weed killer. yes, gotta kill some weeds.

or maybe not. maybe i should go weed the front hard.

what should i have for lunch today?

10:48am - just finished watering, doing some more weeding and mowing the back lawn (again.) now heading to the front to take care of that mess.
12:31pm - i'm in from working the front yard. did some weeding, but it mostly needed a mow. it looks good. i'm loving that everything is filling in and it creates shade. see, our house has no natural shade, so for the last 6 years, we've been fostering shade plants. i came in 30 minutes ago to get lunch and now i'm stuck back on this computer responding to blog comments, IMing and just plain surfing. this darn thing. ok, off to roast a brat.

weekend stuff

so, last week, i did what i set out to do and walked home every day. i was able to get in upwards of 18,000 steps each day and that my friend makes me feel good. i'm still sick, but mentally, i felt recharged. i'm gonna try again this week, but my main goal this week is to get rid of this sore throat.
the weekend was good. not much to report other than we busted out the bar-b-que and did some sausages. yum. we also harvested about a quart of raspberries. oh and did a family event with relatives we haven't seen in about 6 years.
some photos:

Georges corner tavern

i'm back from my 2 weeks of travel. I've been kinda a mess too. The first week, I ended up working almost 70hrs in the course of 4 days, so my body took a beating. I ended up getty a chest cold that ruined my 3 day weekend home. I shouldn't say ruined, it just kept me from doing much other than watch tv and rest. Then it was off to Seatte for a week of training. Seattle traffic is crazy. Granted, they are a much larger city and the sprawl is crazy, so I just dealt with it. I'm funny...I don't drive or commute by car, so being in 30 minutes of traffic wasn't a big deal until the 4th day. Also, it was clear enough that I was able to check out all the mountains surrounding Seattle and catch up on email.
i was worried that during my travels, i wouldn't get my walking in. In Denver, I ended up only having 1 day when i didn't get my goal. The facility we were at was spread out, so it was about 1/4 mile between me and my servers and on the first day, I went down there probably 20 times. It was great to get up and walk and get some fresh air when it's 3 in the morning and you've just eaten a whole bag of m&ms.
When i returned, i vowed to clean myself up after 2 weeks of travel food. Week 1 was all about chain restaurants and delivered food. It took my body 3 days to feel whole again. Seattle was better as I made the choices about my food, but even then, it was all restaurant food and by its very nature - fatty! This week, i've eaten salad and light sandwiches and feel like my body is getting back to normal.
A. and I have been walking in the evenings a ton this week. It began with a great Sunday morning walk down on the waterfront. Earlier this week, we ventured up to New Seasons for groceries and then stopped by Interstate Bowl for a beer. Wow, that was an interesting scene. It looked like a good bowling ally and was packed, but we were interested in the bar. The bar had people in it, but absolutely no character. The dropped corporate cieling and bank flouescent lights made it more trashy than divey. 2 beers down and we were gone.
The next day, we wandered up to Georges on N. Killingsworth and Interstate. I had been there before for football, but A hadn't. It's a nice neighborhood bar, plain and simple. They had sports on the tv, the cool trivia game everyone loves. There were young people, old people and us. The prototypical neighborhood tavern. I think we'll be going back since it's a nice walk and they have good cold cheap beer.

so, what's the band name?

Friday, June 02, 2006

this past two weeks has allowed me to meet some bartenders..some good and some not so good. none of them were bad, some were just better than others. my favorite was a bar in seattle off 3rd - I asked the bartender if they had food and his response was- naw, all we have is crap! you don't want to eat here. it was precious. I had a beer just so I could tip the guy.
at another bar in seattle (unnamed) I had a great time with the bartenders. the crazy thing was that they were drinking along with the customers. it was like a "1 for you.....1 for me..." and they weren't attempting to hide it either. when I got my side of mezcal, they both got one too. I was loving it, but a part of me was concerned that they were a little loose with the drinks and that would harm a wonderful locale if caught. oh well...
bartenders end up being fastfriends. we usually exchange names and wish each other well. for me, that is why I may return to a place even if it has subpar food and drink.
