OF THE WEEKEND
Friday on the way home from work I stopped by Barnes & Noble and picked up some books. I bought "Bastard Out of Carolina" by Dorothy Allison after reading an interesting interview in Salon. I also purchased, on a whim, "Into Thin Air" by Jon Krakauer. I've been wanting to read that but have been loathe to buy it in hardcover. T. and I have been reading it to each other the past couple of days. And, I bought the new ESPN magazine for T. I'm always curious about new publications -- so far it doesn't look too bad. In the evening we went out to dinner at a place in Playa Del Ray called Outlaws where the average burger costs "9 bucks 6 bits" which is actually less than the $9.60 I thought it would be and was more around $7.75.
First of all we couldn't find prices on much of the stuff. I fell in love with some bedding and after twenty minutes of hunting discovered that my beloved sheets were Calvin Klein and a flat sheet was like $70! We didn't want to pick stuff that was totally unreasonable. When we finally settled on some that were reasonable and that we liked they didn't have the right color in the right size. This wouldn't have been a problem if we could find anyone in the store who could help us. For a Saturday there were surprisingly few clerks and the ones that were around seemed to avoid us like the plague. Then the battery went dead on the zapper. That was the last straw and we headed out of Macy's.
Next, we set out to the wedding of a friend of ours and had a jolly good time. Weddings are really tough to plan and the waiting is worse. T. seems to be favoring the band-aid removal method of nuptials. He thinks that something along the line of a quick jerk would be less painful then the drawn out planning and organizing. Really, I don't want to think much about the "big day" right now either.
