I had a "what? WHAT?" start to the weekend on Saturday. I lost the knitting out of my backpack, the store was out of this week's bus pass, and the stylist dyed my hair burgundy when I asked for violet
. I did manage to find the knitting by backtracking my path three hours later, and wasn't too late for my plans with sanj
I had planned to show her the last three Sharpe's Rifles episodes, the ones with Alexis Denisof playing one of the antagonists -- basically playing Wesley Wyndham-Pryce at his worst -- a Napoleonic Wars era Life Guards officer. However, I did want her to get some context, so I brought along my collection of the first five episodes as well.( In which the straight girl, the bi girl, and the lesbian watch tv about pretty men... )
So we finished watching with much squee and good will. Hopefully I'll get to show them the third, fourth and fifth episodes soon.
This morning, I went with sanj to her church choir sing, and got to wear my hifu coat. It hits me right about the knees, and is absolutely gorgeous. We ran into abka
and his mom, and had brunch as Cafe Deluxe. My french toast was good, but their potatoes were cold, and so I think the consensus was it's a good place for dinner, but not brunch.
Afterwards, Sanj helped me find some gorgeous shoes at Comfort One Shoes -- El NaturaLista
brand. I bought Iggdrasil N091
shoe with its cute little frog, but I want the Vedoira N570 clog
, Iggdrasil N090 clog
and maybe even the Iggdrasil N096
