woo! ordered dsl from sonic today. <3 sonic.
ern and i went on a date, vietnamin + a movie: monster. a lesbian alliance between charlize theron and christina ricci sounds hott on paper, but it was terribly unsexy. i likened it to a donkey eating a pumpkin.

worked, incredibly frustrated with a report/needs. spent so much time building this report and learning the language and yesterday's meeting finds my report to contain data from teh wrong sources. apparently the accounting dept and the project mgmt dept are in dispute over what the report should contain. so i suspend working on it.
after work went home for a minute and picked up ern for one of her coworker's kids' bday party @ chuckecheeses. had a beer, got tipsy, had some pizza, had some more beer, had a good time. havent been tipsy in a while. we went home and started watching donnie darko. ern fell asleep on me like normal, then i fell asleep like ern. we went to bed a little later, went to sleep. i woke up @ 2:30a with that uh-oh feeling. pizza didnt sit right and i got sick.

went to work, dealt with tedious things all day. after work went to new house and got keys/signed contracts. met the owner, he seemed nice, slightly reserved but he's an artist and it isnt out of character. after that we went by ern's old place and got her boxes n such. moved most of her in, took boxes to my house and i got a lot of stuff packed and over to the new place. fixed a cup of tea, slept on a futon. getting used to sleeping in the city might take a little while. i heard car alarms and traffic and stuff like that. there are at least a dozen mirrors in this new place. my old house i only had the one in the bathroom above the sink. now there are full length mirrors every friggin place. i'd gotten used to just getting dressed and walking out the door.crit?: 0

we looked at new places today. really hoping for this one that has a studio in the back yard with a stained glass doorway and an attached atrium. it has a recessed bbq/outside fireplace... 2 decks. the studio has a fireplace too. the inside is ok im sure, we havent seen it yet. went to an art show @ the glass beetle. slightly derivative, but we hate that phrase. after that ern, shawn, silvanieand i went to this place called michele's for a show, some peoploe played, and then the setup (aka polarbears) played and just made the place jump. i've never seen indie kids (non-core) move around so much. it got a little iffy so i backed up. we didnt get in till 2.crit?: 0
work. got more stuff done today then i've been able to get done in the last several weeks. got marketing copy back, boss had written "good job!" on it, so i scissored it off of the page and taped it to my monitor. ern came to work for lunch, there werent very many people to meet as most folk took today off. we had portuguese for lunch, sammiches were slightly dry, soup was bland. the coke was good though. after work i picked up my car from the mechanic where it was having new oil put in it. there was a drunk driving/sobriety checkpoint @ 5:20p on a friday.. odd. then they were waving everyone through. i was supposing that it was more of a sting thing to wait for either a specific car that took that route, or they were mebbe looking for something else. drove up to SR, dropped shawn's jacket off with sil, picked ern up for dinner. we went back to the brasserie. so friggin good. i had rare ahi with foie gras, ern had the dungeness crab gratineed swordfish (what i had last time) had a few drinks, killed my bug. i had freaked out at work a little bit, i think i may have just been tired or something. had a nice mousse and some iced cream for desert, waiter brought a martini by, on the house. went by target for girl supplies. home. it was a very big day.crit?: 0
woke up rested, got around slowly. went by drk's house and talked to him/picked up shawn's knife. went out to occidental and had some breaky @ howard's (v. good) we split biscuits n gravy, peach waffles and veggie eggs benedict.
