Yesterday at lunch, I took full advantage of whirled's gift certificate and went to the spa for the massage. The massage therapist seemed thoroughly entertained by the fact that I had never been for a massage before and that I kept telling her that it was for adventure!
This place was trippy. They ask you what kind of music or sounds you want to hear (you can pick things like "opera" or "ocean sounds." I chose classical music in case the ocean sounds included manatee sex or something. Then you get to choose what the room smells like and they pump that smell in. I chose lavender and clary sage and rosemary and cinnamon, I think it was. I still smell like sage, even after a shower. The massage was pretty sweet, but it doesn't seem to have had any long-lasting effects on my physical well-being. I was sort of expecting that I would be all jiggly and loose in my shoulders for days, and I wasn't even jiggly and loose when I walked out of there. But it was fun! Adventure! Interrobang?!
After that, I went to Sweet Revenge and got sangria and a savory cupcake, which might mean this will be a three-sangria week, since gildedage and I may be going for tacos? Not because it is Cinco de Mayo, but because she wanted tacos and I know a good taco place.
Amy and Jo and Michelle were all there and it was nice chatting with them. I had a sweet cupcake, too, a coconut one, which was delicious. The baked goods were very good, but the drinks were a bit overpriced for what they were. It was more like a bakeshop with booze than like a bar with cupcakes, and I was hoping more for the bar with cupcakes. On our way out, we passed this place, and Amy was like, "would it be wrong to eat a cupcake and then get a popsicle for dessert?" Jo and Michelle thought it was, but I told her no, never, and we went to get popsicles. I got a grapefruit one, and so did Amy, but once they rang us up, they were like, "oh! It's our birthday, let's give you each a free coffee gelato pop!" Of course, neither of the other two ladies could be convinced to eat one, so Amy and I double-fisted the popsicles and it was kind of hilarious. She took pics, but hasn't sent them to me yet!
Then I went home, and noodled around on the computer for the rest of the night. Hooray!
Tonight, I get to take gildedage to this place. Art supplies!
