sunday was overcast and definately made for the eating of popcorn. (i'm on a popcorn kick lately, if you hadn't noticed.) as such, leff and i decided to skip schmancy and to instead see "fearless" at the bay.
fantastic movie (of course, i heart jet li.) and possibly my favorite movie theatre in seattle after the cinerama. (they had jellyfish lights!)
after the movie, leff was in dire need of coffee and i wanted a cupcake so we walked the five feet to cupcake royale/verite where we purchased two of the three cupcakes for this year's cupcake harvest
(on the left is an apple spice cupcake with maple buttercream icing and behind that is the pumpkin with cream cheese.)
and one of the limited edition sewdorky cupcakes.
i can't believe this is the first sewdorky plush that i've ever purchased. i love the donuts that he makes.
after a call from j, it was decided that dim sum was in order so it was back to the vegetarian bistro!
this time i got photos of the dim sum. apologies for how dark they are but, well, i don't use my flash. ever. i hate using the flash.
anyway, we had deep fried mashed potatoes,
steamed veggie dumplings,
pumpkin cake (which was vaguely pumpkiny with a red bean center. mmm!)
and, everyone's favorite, steamed hum buns.
i honestly don't know why we only order one of those. people almost come to blows over the last steamed hum bun.
we also split an order of schezuan beef and wonton soup. de-freakin-licious!
yes, i went to kinokuniya. no, i didn't buy anything. and, after searching two stores in the id and questioning the guy at international models, it would seem that there are no range murata pinky st figures to be had in seattle. i guess i'll have to order them online.
later that night, leff and i watched the first half of casanova. oooh, it's good! (we'd been waiting to see it for at least a year or so. at least since shed told us about it. thanks, shed!)
now to get back to work. things should be getting back to normal now that the pseudo-in-law is safely back in d.c. where he belongs.
