It started snowing a little bit (not the full on #snOMG the weather was reporting) and it felt very Christmas-ie when looking across the street at Bedlam. The lights, the snow and even the cute yellow bicycle.
I spent most of the day feeling a bit hungover after April's birthday bash. Jonathan finally got me out of bed with the promise of Dope Burger. Randomly, I felt like getting their salad, and well, it's the only thing I took a pic of that day.
April has some friends in town from Sarasota and apparently that town is lacking in Ethiopian restaurants. They were super excited to come here and eat Ethiopian.
We hit up Habesha in the Denny Triangle and it was yummy, as always. Oh, and I'm addicted to kitfo!
I had a Thursday lunch date that had to reschedule and then Ed called me and asked if I wanted to meet him at Pike Place for a quick minute. I did just that. We picked up sandwiches and soup, we sat in the park and enjoyed this beautiful day.
I apologize for this poor picture. I was trying to figure out if Retro Cam worked, so I took this pic of my fireplace and it happened to be the only one I ended up taking today, as two minutes later my phone crashed and then ADD got the best of me. I love how you can see the spots on my phone's lens, too.
And yes, this was the only pic I took today. Lame.
It's hard to tell from this picture, but the sky is dropping crazy amounts of hail. All of a sudden, I heard a weird noise in my fireplace of all places. I got up to investigate just as it started to pick up. I went outside and it was bright, semi warm and yet the hail was coming down so hard.
I also took a video, because I am a dork. Hailing in Belltown
I was visiting my friend Ed today and he picked up this Brownie Girl Scout guide at Good Will for fifty cents. He wanted some of the pics for an art project or something. As I picked it up and started reading it, I was suddenly brought back to my Girl Scout days, the Girl Scout honor and earning badges.
I think the current Brownie guide has been updated (this one was from 1970) but this page made me say, "Wow, just wow."
This pic was taken after Midnight, so technically on the 4th. Will & April, I actually introduced them, at Del Rey. They stayed late with me, and helped close it down. Also, they are cool enough to get in the conga line!
If you know me, you know that Del Rey was my spot. We had a very codependent and messed up relationship, but were always there for each other when needed. Sadly, it was time for the doors to close.
Del Rey went out with a bang and this is a picture of Great White and The Captain, DJing in their underwear. Aww, I will miss the Del Rey.
April and I had been shopping downtown and as we were walking back, I spotted this red balloon floating in the sky. April made fun of me for taking the shot, but later when Jonathan saw it, he validated my need to the the pic.
