So… a nice little reprieve from Gustav for New Orleans. I hope everyone (Louisiana, Florida, and everywhere else) continues to dodge Hanna, Ike and Josephine. Note 3 years ago today, below.
The DNC homepage makes no mention of John McCain. The RNC page has a ton of attacks on Obama and Biden. That’s something. Not sure what, but it’s something.
BHK put me on to Disaster Dioramas – I’m partial to the Hindenburg, but I suspect that she’s more into the Titanic.
Tonight we went to Ledos, and got the greasiest white pizza ever. Tummy trouble is likely to follow. we didn’t bother keeping half of it. I hate wasting money and food – I suspect it’ll take a lot for us to return there. Got maggie moo’s as a after yuck treat – I got mint chocolate chip with chocolate sprinkles and brownie bits – BHK got carrot cake ice cream with peanut butter sauce. It was pretty good, if odd. I’ve got a love-creeped out relationship with cake-batter flavored ice cream.
Added bonus was at the photography center next door – we saw an orange kitten (about 3 mos) named Charlie playing with his humans… it was very adorable, and we got to talk to the family a bit. BHK thinks it might be time to get a portrait with the lads… though I’m not sure how well-behaved Newton would be for sit-down pictures. Pye is mellow enough, but it is a strange and new environment.
I forgot to mention that on Saturday we went to Leonardtown – skipped witch rock this time, and instead visited a few nifty bookstores – including one made from an old bar. I can’t remember the name but it was a nifty old-school mass of books just reaching back into the far back – also went back to White rabbit and got BHK a Raven Puppet to go with her Edgar Allan Poe, a yarn store (Crazy for Ewe ) with a hostess who was very nice and kept staring at BHK’s lime-vanilla ice, a model train shop and the do-dah deli… later, we went to Aardvark to pick up Pentago – BHK beat me 5-2… a sound victory indeed.
