I've had a shitty week and it's only Tuesday. But I had an amazing weekend.
Friday night SexyBeast and I hunkered down to watch Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles ("are you Sarah Connor?) and Dollhouse. *Le sigh* I wanna like Dollhouse 'cause I'm a huge Joss Whedon fan but this fucker has been on for a month now and eeeehhhhhhhhhhhh. When's it going to be good and stay consistently good? And I sucked down a Krieg cherry lambic. I am so addicted to that stuff. I dream about it when I'm a work on a Tuesday morning.
Saturday, SexyBeast went for a run and I did absolutely nothing. SexyBeast is the runner. He now has huge Hulk thighs! After being fed and watered, we trucked on out to Hadley, MA to go to Mecca (read Trader Joe's). It took about 2 hours to get there but the gas is actually cheaper down there so it all evened out in the end.
After being surrounded by yummylicious food bargains, SexyBeast needed to be fed. I felt all Sylvia Plathy driving into Amherst. We ate GIGANTIC cheap burritos from Buena y Salo (Good & Healthy). I had veggies and guacamole, lots of peppers and beans and rice. SexyBeast of course had spicy beef and sour cream. I was full for hours.
Like any good college town, there was the ubiquitous awesome cheap bookstore. One of my purchases was The Lonely Doll by Dare Wright. Dare was a Canadian model turned photographer. There's something vaguely disturbing and sweet and weird about this children's book (1st published in 1957).
We finished out the day by having awesome awesome Vietnamese at Van's in Albany. Reasonable pretty eats. Yummy yummy pho.
Sunday we decided hike Thatcher Park. It was very very windy and turkey vultures abound. But the sky was blue. We soldiered on. Hey, let's grill Trader Joe's chicken jalapeno sausages. After 10 minutes of feeling like Mary Poppins, we ate in the truck.
