dreadhawk

free stuff; bullet points; you care about my holes

i fucking love all these 50% gift certificate deals that've been going around. i'm signed up for groupon, living social, & voice, & each site has been ridiculously beneficial. (use those links to sign up if you do; i get a kickback.) i'm also signed up for a local paper's deals, which is a ton of half price gift certificates for seattle stuff. so i spent greenwellies's birthday cash on these, & took/am taking joe out to eat:

already used:
  • coastal kitchen: where i had a lovely grouper with fennel-lentil cakes from normandy & an excellent apple tart. we even went back during the same menu for their marmite dieppoise with seared arctic char, mussels & shrimp in a fish fume broth. mmmmmmmm, i'd never had char & it's delightful. that second visit produced this shockingly perfect receipt that we couldn't do again if we tried.

    still to come:
  • avalon: helo to dishes made with sunchokes & dandelion pesto
  • cafe paloma: anything with lamb is a-okay by me
  • ohana: i've heard good things about this place, & i can't possibly consume enough sushi in my lifetime.

    wtf, man. free is the new black?

    beyond jewelry, an abundance of which follows, i don't really have much to type about. i've generally been working too much at the day job, dreads, & luciferins to have good stories. still, you may have some bullet points on my minutiae:

  • i liberated my full spinal x-ray from a local chiropractic office, & i look forward to getting that scanned in. i'm also planning on building it a light box display with sic737's help. remember, i don't have scoliosis, it's just that i'm part snake.
  • the other day at QFC they said over the loudspeaker, "produce, please come pick up your load. produce, come clean up your GIANT LOAD." everyone in line, regardless of age or social standing, chorlted.
  • putting 5k into an IRA last year increased my tax refund this year from $850 to $2100. fucking awesome. go economics.
  • seeing a hipster load his stupid fixie onto the bus to go up capitol hill seriously made my day. GEE, I BET YOU COULD MAKE THAT HILL IF YOU HAD GEARS.
  • on friday, i made a dinner so lovely i photographed it. seared wild-caught swordfish with coriander, garlic sauteed mushrooms & wilted spinach, & a big ol' pile of yam mashers (skim milk, no butter); icewater with fresh lemon juice (unsweetened) to drink. all organic veggies & high grade olive oil. 375 grams, 380 calories, 8g fiber, 6g fat (monounsaturated, from the fish & oil), 32g protein, 49g carb. :D Collapse )
  • joe & i went to volunteer park to take photos of the perigee moon on saturday. i was pretty happy with what the hx1 can do with its telephoto lens. Collapse )
  • & some dreads pics i've posted lately: my dreads collection; animated campics & such; random shots of me & joe; & an entertaining joe story not to be missed.

    next up: those holes you care about.
