I’ll have another, thanks.

The Ice Kiss is: whipped cream, fruity pebbles, strawberry ice cream, bananas, jujube-type things, red beans, a little canned fruit of some kind, and the occasional strawberry -- all atop a bed of shaved ice with strawberry juice in it. by m kasahara.

(the highlight of the weekend was like this, but with green tea ice cream, no bananas, and watermelon. totally refreshing, and also something I’m glad I can’t eat for every meal, because I totally would, and I’d convince myself it was healthy because of the fruit and sweet red beans. image by m kasahara)

I’d like an endless supply of three-day weekends, actually.

This one was very very productive, up until I crashed on Monday and sort of sat around like a lump, which happens. However, I got a lot done the rest of the weekend, so it wasn’t so bad.

Saturday: Spent time with Sondra, then did some shopping at Target (we shall see if the fabric shower curtain liner is, in fact, easier to clean; I’m hopeful), then went (2 hours late) to a farewell shindig for Devon. Then we watched Little Miss Sunshine at home, and I am convinced it is the most awkward movie I’ve ever seen, hands-down. Seriously.

Sunday: Sat around the house, then did many loads of laundry, and cleaned out the back of the car. In the evening, we introduced the ChickenGoddess to the wonder that is Boondock Saints. She was appreciative.

Monday: Got up, dragged the gigantic and still filthy free rug out of the garage, and went to work cleaning it. We covered it in OxyClean solution, then did our best to rinse it out, and then shop-vacced it, which made it not smell like dogs any more, but made it smell somehow worse. We’re looking into a rug shampooer to rent. At least we got the caked-in chewing gum out. I found out that it was abnormally hot both Sunday and Monday, so if we were to choose a chore to do outside one of those days, rug-cleaning was a good choice. Oh, does it smell. The water coming out of it was the color of strong coffee, I kid you not. But it will fit in the living room once clean, so that’s a bonus. Afterward, we did some erranding. We picked up some fancy plaster, had a delicious and amazing Korean shaved ice dessert (if you are in the ATL, go to Cafe Mozart Bakery and get one; it’s the best $6.99 you can spend on a hot afternoon), bought a hideously bad suit for the husband’s DragonCon costume, chatted with Sabrina (who was, incidentally, also sorta shopping for DragonCon), scored myself a lovely $3 skirt (with tags on! like new!), did some grocery shopping, and then went home again for some more house cleaning and then a viewing of the Fog, which is perhaps the most awful Bollywood movie I’ve seen yet. I don’t recommend that one, unless you plan on having an MST3K party, in which case, you can totally borrow it from me.

And that’s that. We’ve got company in this weekend, and I’m feverishly gearing up for that. So far, I’ve bought lunch meat. I think I’m a little behind.

Whew. 3-day weekends are not vacations for me, but that’s my own fault.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

    I’ve never actually *been* to Cafe Mozart Bakery but I have Korean friends who have brought us the buttercream desert cakes from there.. which are AWESOME. They are especially awesome if you don’t like super-sweet things.
