I worked yesterday, and it was good. The day went by fairly quickly and then it was time for Gwynne
to pick me up for dinner.
We decided to try a Thai place called Ka Ra Kade
that was very near where we live... though we were apprehensive. We'd gone to that location before, and the experience wasn't a good one, but the restaurant looked like it was under new ownership now. We were pleasantly surprised at the redesign, but even moreso when we got our food. For instance we ordered satay as an appetizer, and whereas the last time it was bland and the peanut sauce wasn't good at all, this time both were super tasty. I liked their garlic pepper chicken, but Gwynne's pad see-ew was just scrumptious. The waiter was attentive (but it was just us and two other people in the place) and the owner (I believe) was very friendly, chatting us up while we ate. It was a very nice dining experience and we'll surely be going there again. Check out the third paragraph in Gwynnie's LJ entry here
for her take on the place.
Anyway, when we got home (all nice and full) I checked the mail and discovered a check from Sharper Image
. I excitedly opened it to discover it was for the amount of...
... thirty-four cents.
Yes, they spent forty-one cents to sent me a check I'd actually feel embarrassed to cash if I walked into WaMu with it. Anyway, after calling the assistant manager of SI and having a good laugh with him about it I settled in and watched Smallville and Lost (which I reviewed here
) while also using the electric kettle to heat up her royal flyness' bathwater because I am a loving boyfriend type person. Then, when she went to bed I stayed up until 2 AM reading up on Lost and getting into the online experience
I woke up this morning (well, just a little bit ago actually) to Selene pawing at the blanket right near my face in an effort to burrow under there right next me. It was very cute. That last about five minutes before I got up and did my usual morning routine, which resulted in this post. I have the day off, and I may go to Lee's to pick up some comics... I dunno.
