Fairy Cake!!!

May 1st, 2005 (01:42 am)

What A Loverly day I have had!!!
(you know, AFTER work?!)

zutroy and I both visited the Newly Finished
WHOLE FOODS WORLD HEADQUARTERS for the first time!

I must say, even having been a manager at Central Market for three years....
I was not prepared for the ORGY of GROCERY that is--THE WHOLE FOODS
World Headquarters.

We were both starving--and just kept spinning around,
overwhelmed by the FOODAGE.

And then...off to the ALAMO DRAFT HOUSE for Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy!!!

We were served a complementary "Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster"
while we waited in line, (it was blue, it had I dunno...maybe GIN in it?
and an olive)

They played the old BBC television series before the show....
And there was a heartfelt introduction by one of the staff--who was
English, and quite the fan. He likened Douglas' death in England....
to That of Fred Rogers, in the States.

I got a lump in my throat.

*Sigh*

There was also a rousing game of TRIVIA before the show, folks who could
answer the questions...got a TOWEL!!!

I did not win a TOWEL.

*Sigh*

BUT zutroy DID!!!!


Question: What was at the center of the Total Perspective Vortex?

Zut hollars: FAIRY CAKE!!!


Wheeeeee!




*hee*

And he let me hold his TOWEL!



I cannot imagine having seen that movie ANYWHERE else....
With ANYONE else.

When I was in High School (Germany)
I got the Thespians (my Geek Squad)
to carry Towels to school every Thursday....

By the end of the year, most of the school
was doing it....even those who weren't sure WHY!

*laughing*

It's so strange to see all of the little things that have
been private-jokes for decades--go main stream.

I said as much to Zut while we were standing in line
last night....
He just laughed and told me it meant I was getting OLD!

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

I thought about you...

Quite a bit while we were hanging around in line,
they held it at the NEW SOUTH LAMAR location....

Was that open when you came for BNAT???

It's a GREAT Theater!!!

Re: I thought about you...

Right, of course...For SXSW

I guess I thought maybe they had opened it up
early for ou Guys--but that would have been
quite a bit early.

YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE IT!

Re: I thought about you...

Hopefully the downtown Alamo will still be open by December. I have to love the original.

Antid0te

Yes, I felt the same way...

The new one is quite the experience.
But I hope they do not close the original....
I've had too much fun there.

So many memories.

You, probably even more so.

Re: I thought about you...

Well, that's what happens when you don't buy the building. When they opened, there was nothing around there except Polly Esther's. Now it's the hip area for suburban professionals (can't venture down to Sixth Street, no WAY!) to be seen, and property values are though the roof. They opened the Lamar location thinking that they'd get kicked/priced out of downtown the next time their lease is up.
