Back from my Errands....

May 3rd, 2005 (10:30 pm)
current song: Laissez Faire

Glad I didn't collapse after work and just sleep the night away....
Somehow, once the sun sets--I get my second wind.

The crazy guy next door (STOP THE BANGING guy) has his door open too....
and there is the most loverly smell of Indian food cooking, that delicate spice
I cannot quite put my finger on but smells so exotic and floral.

*sigh*

Too bad he's insane, right?



I went to Central Market Westgate, and had a great time.
Ran into several Friends I had not seen in a while, and talked and talked...
It really does feel like a "Central Market Place" with it's restaurant
and vast maze-like aisles of flora and fauna, floatsome and jetsome,
people stand around and chat over wine labels and bunches of basil.

And I'm too hip for words with my large canvas SXSW/Shopping bag
in my little Euro-style cart....(i like them because i can jump up on back
and SCOOOT on them for several feet without killing some unsuspecting
fellow shopper!)

*smirks*

It's so Austin.

Whole Foods World Headquarters is AMAZING...
but just a tad too overwhelming and HUGE to feel like home.
It is Disneyland, to CM's Central Park.
Fun and flashy--but not the kind of place you would fly a kite.

But, well, I am rather biased--having managed the restaurant at CM
for the first three years it was open.
*grin*

I made my rounds, and re stocked on fresh veggies and deli goodies...

Found out what a Quince looks like...before you make Quince out of it!
The produce guy cut it open for me--and we both pondered why the jelly
is red, as the fruit has white flesh....(anyone? anyone?)

(mostly the produce guy is hot, and he gave me a flier for his band...*BEAMS*)

Packed all my supplies home to the Tree House, and put them away.
Stuck my "bottle" in the freezer, and then grabbed my keys and headed to Target.
Needed paper products!
T.P (over or under? I'm an Over gal.)
Those great BLUE paper towels that you can ring and reuse...
And a nifty little black box of tissue (i couldn't resist the packaging
and it's sneezy season in A-Town...)

I picked up and put back a little boy's size small SUPERMAN T-shirt
several times...
If it had been screened rather than raised plastic I am sure I would be
wearing it bra-less right now!
But that rubbery stuff just isn't comfortable...

But it was sooooo CUTE!
(screw spending 30 bucks on an X-men Baby-T at the MAUL
when you can spend 7 in the little boys department at Target!!!
That's where I get allllll my Batman and Spiderman socks! ^_^)

Home again, stocked and chuffed.

Ready for a night of mischief on the Blinky Box....

Tomorrow--Scooter stuff, and off to the Post Office to mail a few packages.
One to Vegas.
And one
to Outer Space.

But really, what's the dif???

*grins at spacemummy*



*wiggles her bare toes*


HURRAY FOR WEEKENDS IN THE MIDDLE!!!


So--what have YOU Cats and Kittens been up to..........

*toddles off to visit her Friends-list*

Heh, and you know what? I was born in Vegas. From Vegas to Outer Space. By way of Kansas, of course, whose motto is ad astra per aspera. "To the stars, with hope." Or aspirations, or hard work. Depends on how to translate it.

Graattzeei...



I hope you've seen Hitch Hiker's by now....
If you haven't, tell me now.
I'll send 8 bucks too--because you must.

I love the "ring" on his thumb.

I got a few folks--
when they needed it.
Ten times more got me....
when I needed it.

The snake rolls over, mouth full.



It's all in the translation, isn't it?


(hey, is that about Superboy??? *raises a Smallville eye-brow*)


A Vegas baby....wow.
And I was proud, of being a "Jersey Girl"!

*laughs*


I got you a pound of KOMODO DRAGON today...
Mad mix of Indonesian...NICE.
and have several other lesser blends in the box.

No blue berries--KD reminds me of flowers.
Have you ever eaten a rose petal?
That.
THAT is what the finish does to me.
(my childhood was often spent in a flower shop
off the Gulf...in Long Beach Mississippi)
Bite it.
The nose takes over.
Those aren't places the tongue can understand.

(hate to praise the Evil Empire, but this one isn't bad.)

A little Sumatra and a pound of ANNIVERSARY blend.
(I've been hording it. It comes out in September like ME.
and it is always different ((i am told, my first year))
I loved this one.
You cannot get it anymore.
ANYWHERE.
(ok--everything can be had)

You get coffee...Mummy.
Your story of blue berries cut me in half.

I don't trust the BUX with roasting on most counts....
But what I am sending you is what I think is the best.

They fumble into brilliance on occassion.

Re: *GRINS HARD*

Um, movies not in the picture for now, so to speak. I don't have time or funds. And HG2G was my favorite book in the 10th grade. 20-some years later I am considering trying to see it in its second go round town. To tell you the truth, I'm a little afraid. I don't want to admit my influences too readily. ;)

I wouldn't let you buy me a movie unless you were there, Ginger. But I can't refuse a coffee. Nosiree.

Re: *GRINS HARD*

I got to tell you that my pride is little stubbed. But what can I do but bounce a little love back at you as soon as porpoise.

When I used to work as a cashier at a grocery store, our produce guy was hot too.

I was still in high school, and I used to always give special code names for people I liked or didn't like, so I could talk about them when they were near me and they wouldn't know I was talking about them (that was a mouthful).

Anyway, code name for hot produce guy was jalapeño.

GET it?

Man, I was lame then, as I am now.

*laughs*

Wear Gloves.
Black Cat Burns

Fashion is a BEAST...........

But wear gloves.

May be your last chance.


And wear what you want..............


Pick shoes, good for dancing.

*wiggly grin*


And don't get mad
if your dress is torn.
