the end of 08 plus ho ho hope globe, genki sushi and a cupcake laser show

happy late new year, tender vittles!

were you in seattle during the fireworks? were you as underwhelmed as me? i mean, didn't you feel like they just...ended. no big finale, just....pfffft.

(thanks to j and d for the party! (and sorry to c and b for not making it to yours.))

you know what we got from freakin' ups instead of the package that we WANT and have been waiting for for over a week? this.

i'm still not sure if it's a gag gift or not. i mean, don't get me wrong, i love obama (we're headed to his inauguration in two weeks!) but i don't need to build a shrine to him in my goddamed apartment.

anyway, i did what anyone would do with a "gift" like that. i started a blog about it and sent it on its merry way.

no, there aren't a lot of updates on the ho ho hope globe yet. there may never be. still, it's not in my apt any more. *steepling fingers/evil laugh*

moving on, there have been a lot of things hanging in the trees of lqa lately. for instance, a lei

and a strand of popcorn.

it's not earth shattering, but it's kinda' fun.

now that the snow is mostly gone (we got more last night that is desperately trying to hang in there. i think i'll go glare at it after i finish writing this.), i've added walking back into my pt routine. here are two pics from my somewhat daily quests to tackle queen anne hill.

leff and i are still in thrall of the laser radiohead show at pacsci. so is jessie. which might explain why we made her a laser cuppy display on new year's day, complete with a bat beast.

i hasten to add that it might explain it, but it still doesn't make it any less weird to find your self standing in your bathtub with your bf in the dark making blind contour drawings of a cupcake with a laser pointer.

(full laser show here)

what else...oh yes! leff and i tried genki sushi!

it was quite good. leff has video of the kaiten sushi conveyor belt doing its thing.

i leave you with some sticker photos taken from another walk around belltown.
