So I just realized I have barely posted anything about the past week and it was a super busy one.
My week in review!
Saturday I had a table at Pete’s Mini Zine Fest, which was super fun. The table was cheap, I made back what I spent on the table, and most of my beer money for the day. Afterwards, I met up with Destiny and Mike, and we had Vietnamese foods. It was a nice day!
Sunday I went to Ikea in the morning and bought some stuff for the apartment, including a rug and some curtains. And a giant inflatable spider. Yes, you heard that right. I also bought some lamps. One of the lamps wouldn’t go together, though, and the giant inflatable spider was broken.
Then intrepia called, and invited me to go out with her and abangaku to see The Merchant of Venice in the park. They had stayed up all night to get tickets as it was the last night. I got to sleep all night and then enjoy the play! I still got home very late for a little Tea, but the play was phenomenal. Al Pacino was Shylock and I thought he was fabulous, the interpretation of the character in this production was very different from any one I’d seen before, which was pretty neat.
Monday I had work, and our new comic website launched, which was pretty exciting! Then I went to Ikea to return stuff. And bought more stuff. Unfortunately, I only realized Monday night that I had miscounted my curtains so on
Tuesday I went back to Ikea. I think it bears explaining that Ikea from my apartment is like a 3 hour round trip experience. This time I had Swedish meatballs and lingonberry jam with lingonberry drink in the Ikea cafeteria, just because.
Wednesday, I went with spiralstairs and her friend Nancy to a party at <a href=”http://www.plymptoons.com/”>Bill Plympton’s</a> rooftop. I bought his new DVD and he drew a picture of me, which I totally forgot to scan to post! Bill was a really nice guy and a great host. Then we went out to dinner and parted ways.
Thursday, Brendan took me out to birthday lunch at this restaurant called Agua Dulce. It was very…conceptual inside. The food was pretty good, we had a nice time, but really I had wanted to go to Bocca di Bacco, this Italian restaurant I went to with my mother that was to die for. Sadly, we discovered that they are not open for lunch. Boo!
Then, liret came down and we went to Kat’s birthday picnic in Prospect Park. We hung out with Kat and her awesome friends and then went home.
Friday, I had the day off work to wait for my furniture delivery! I got a kitchen table and bookshelves. They came, they were assembled, they conquered! And then we went up to Connecticut where my mother prepared a feast of ENDLESS appetizers from the many many delicious things in our garden. Plus, I got three bottles of liquor– Cabana cachaça, which I used tonight to make plum capininhas, Rogue hazelnut spice rum, and Ron Zacapa Solera Gran Reserva, which I only want to drink straight because it is freaking lovely. The garden is amazing and awesome; I think we picked like nine cucumbers, and we had homegrown eggplant, zucchini and zucchini blossoms, string beans, tomatoes, radishes, and beets. Everything was freaking to die for. My mother deep fried slivers of zucchini and eggplant, stuffed the zucchini blossoms with mozzarella and fried those, and battered and fried beans and okra. We had beets sliced thing with goat cheese and tomato and mozzarella caprese, plus little steamer clams with melted butter, pork ribs, other cut up vegetables, fry bread, arugula and nasturtium salad, and I’m probably forgetting some things. But all those veggies except the okra were homegrown– our okra is not quite ready to pick. The garden looks gorgeous and amazing and wonderlandlike.
And tomorrow is my birthday! Excitement for all!
