I know there's a secret show on Thursday in Davis with celebrity bands, but this leap in the dark is going to be good, too. The Merry Wells are Dan from Makeout Party's new band, and that guy is great.
I don't think I ever posted this amazing card that OMF drew us for our wedding. We're planning on framing it.
Secret Hub show (I guess secret shows are the new shows) with Buk Buk. They played the Pink Panther theme for a long time. That reminds me how confusing I found the concept of the Pink Panther movies when I was a kid. I still don't get what Clousseau has to do with the cartoon character.
Couldn't capture Fine Steps because it was so dark. It got even darker for the Singles so I didn't even try.
Looked at the furniture at Macys because I am warming up to the idea of someday buying quality furniture (which means I will purchase my first piece in two to five years), got pretty into this ultra-smooth acacia wood table. It costs almost as much as the last Toyota I purchased. I love the bench side though! It comes with four chairs and a bench. I can picture a Danish Modern hanging lamp over it. And sweeping those vases to the ground. What do you guys think? Set with some dansk flatware and heath dishes? Is it douche-y?
Sunday supper! Slow grilled chicken, but I realized that I should have removed the skin. It got really tough after 45 minutes over a few coals and the spice rub did not penetrate. I am still trying to learn how to grill properly. The chicken was expensive farmer's market chicken and you know what? It was gamy, stringy and stingy with the meat. Organic is not always better tasting.
The salad is corn, Krim tomatoes and pesto. We shelled the peas. That's probably 3.50 worth. We had it with a petillant natural rose from the Jura, a blend of Chardonnay and Savagnin. Yeah!
Apricot crumble thing with vanilla ice cream. The apricots were so tangy that it was a really good combo with the oatmeal cookie-like crust and the ice cream. I love apricots. I think apricot jam might be my favorite jam, with marmalade second.
