Yeehaw! The car has magically fixed itself. The ABS light turned off on the way to work this morning. I called the shop and they said that the system probably just got confused with the fishtailing and lack of traction. Since it has reset itself, there is no need to take it to the shop.
This makes up for the fun Sean is having with the dryer repairman.
What: Pie Party to celebrate Kyna's Birthday
Where:Kyna and Sean's House - message me if you need address and/or directions
When: Saturday February 5th, 5:30 PM until whenever
Who: You, and some tasty, tasty pie
Yes, I know this is short notice, life has been.... challenging recently. If you can't make it, I won't be mortally insulted.
To quote Sean: "Pie r good"
Hope to see there!
For those who might be interested, I am going with my mother. Tickets are $30 ($28 if you are over 55). I have seats D2 and D4, four rows back from the stage on the left side of the seating chart.
Don't know who the Cowboy Junkies are? Blasphemy! Listen and learn at their website. They are fabulous in person.
Now, this is a GREAT deal, but there is no way Sean and I can eat this on our own. Anyone want to split with us? We'll take care of ordering and pick up, you just help with the cost and the eating of all that tastiness.
From Thundering Hooves' Website
Bristol Bay Sockeye Salmon 17.6 lbs.
Available for a limited time only! Sustainably-caught by family-owned, Seattle-based Snopac, this wild Alaskan Sockeye salmon from Bristol Bay can be simply grilled with salt and pepper or saved for a salmon chowder to warm you this winter. The salmon is priced to you at $9.99 per pound and arrives in an 8kg frozen box (17.6 lbs.) with approximately 10 fillets at 28 oz. each. If freezer space is tight for you, consider sharing this opportunity with friends and splitting the box.
Offering this wonderful salmon at a good sale price is part Thundering Hooves' new program to seek out other locally-based, environmentally-sustainable producers of quality food.
Now, I am lusting after one particular costume, the Spinner from Act III.
Admittedly, I would change the sleeves and maybe make the underskirt black, but I still am lusting over the patterns on the overskirt, which could be seen from our seats on the balcony. Besides, what little girl doesn't want a tutu?
Any ideas on how to recreate this? Getting the underskirt is easy, it's the top part that would take more work.
9/30/10 - Bellingham, WA (Mt. Baker Theatre)
10/1/10 - Edmonds, WA (Edmonds Center for the Arts)
10/2/10 - Covington, WA (Kentwood High Performing Arts Center)
Now the only issue is to decide which one to go to. Neither Bellingham nor Edmonds has the show up on their website yet, so I can't check ticket prices. I am excited to see them somewhere besides Benaroya Hall, since the acoustics there suck for even the mildest of rock n' roll.
Anyone else thinking about or want to go?
This plus raisin cinnamon brioche from Macrina for breakfast makes for a very happy Kyna..... even if I do have to go to work now.
That said, once the cast comes off, I have plans to attempt to do all sorts of stuff. I won't be allowed to skate for several more months and I want to keep myself occupied and be able to see some people I don't see nearly enough.
Right now, the main front runners include:
- Potluck dinner maybe combined with a movie or game night
- Thrift store outing
- Trip to watch the Oly Rollers roller derby in Olympia
Any thoughts? Would you like to join me for any of this? Other ideas?
In other news I will be at Norwescon this weekend. I have rented a wheelchair, so you'll need to look a little lower to find me. Hopefully, this will make it a bit easier to get around, since using my crutches is rather tiring and I risk being knocked over. I am looking forward to seeing everyone as well as seeing Cory Doctorow, though I don't think I'll ask him to sign my Kindle.
Now I have to contemplate making it to the kitchen to get the dinner Sean left for me.
( Cut for size, not gross )
I am feeling better, though getting around is still tough. The splinting weighs a fair amount and I am just not that great on crutches. Tomorrow, I go back to work, which is going to be an adventure. Luckily, my hero of a husband is going to drive me and all my stuff to Tukwila. We'll see if I can last a full 8 hours. Wish me luck.
This may well be the best $17 I've spent on this wedding. I had to share.
