so, yesterday, Dan and Ginger and i packed up and went down to Portland for the night, to visit ze wonderful Chas and Jill. we got down there about 6:30. they cooked us the best Pad Thai in the world (i do not eat Pad Thai, but this stuff was good), and then we watched Chicken Run, and then some random cartoon called Striperella, which was ... trippy, and then Iron Chef. then we spent awhile trying to get an air mattress inflated, and then everyone fell over.

today was sleeping late, then lunch at some local place i-can't-remember-the-name-but-it-was-good, then running into downtown on the train to troll the Saturday market. lots of pretties. after that, we ended up at a huge fountain by Portland State, wading around in the water. Ginger and Dan ended up soaked from head to toe, so we headed home, got their clothes in the drier, and ordered Chinese food. more silly TV, too. eventually, everything was dry, and so we headed out. i talked to my boy for awhile :) and then fell asleep, which is what i generally do on a car trip of any length.

it was a lovely weekend. thanks, guys. :)

and now i should go to bed.

so i took off of work, came home, and alternated housework and D2. you can almost see the bottom of the sink again. the bathtub is white again. i do appear to have a bedroom floor.

i have two ulterior motives for the cleaning rash: one, the house is a wreck, and it needs to stop being so, and two, i have a boy coming to visit in just a touch over a month, and it'd be nice if the place were clean. i can get rid of 8 months of clutter in one, really. :)

i need to start quarantening the cats out of my room soon.

i hate hate hate changing sheets. i love having nice clean comfy sheets on my bed, which is why i don't sleep in a sleeping bag. i don't mind most housework, once i get started, but i hate changing sheets. i can't be the only one like this, right?

we started in on 25th Hour this afternoon. Ginger'd seen it before, so she drifted off... i got about halfway into it and drifted off, too. i'll finish it sometime this week. it's not doing a whole lot so for me so far, but i want to see what happens. are Spike Lee movies always this horribly slow?

i have a fairly large burn on my leg from the earlier tea incident. i'm not quite sure what it says that i was pissed about the quilt and the keyboard first, and only after awhile noticed that, oh, yea, i'd poured a large quantity of near boiling water down my leg. it'll be fine in a couple days, but i'll be wearing a skirt tommorow.
