mom's here for a visit.
to see the new place on saint mark's.
today was wonderful.
we went out for lunch at the saint mark's bistro with the wonderful paintings by brana. i had the standard goat cheese salad with a side of zucchini soup. the soup was awful.
we were then on our way to chinatown, where i was going to show her pearl river, however we got side-tracked by a free jazz concert at the library. wonderful music, they're playing again at the knitting factory this tuesday @ 8pm, main space. check it out if you're in town.
then on to pearl river where i got a new jacket and a journal and a present for tina and some incense (musk and opium) and a tiny tiny buddha statue for jenelle.
(tangent: jenelle works at office max with her boyfriend joe. she doesn't like working there at all. there's something about working retail, it seems. apparently, the world of retail is much like politics in that it tends to bring out the worst in people. i bought her the little buddha to help her through her horrendous work day)
then back to the apartment for some relaxation, chinese delivery dinner and the adventures of baron von munchausen, which i kick myself for having not seen sooner.
i can't remember! :)
there's something about the king of the moon that's very very wonderful. see it to know what i'm talking about.
also; the chemical brothers song My Elastic Eye sounds deadly familiar, but I can't place it. could be they ripped off bach. anyone know?
