|10:55 pm - It feels like Sunday|
Of course, I guess that's because I had Friday off! :-)
Went up to Adam & Kim's on Thursday night, and went out to dinner with them and Chris and Caridad, and then returned home for watching of stuff and partaking of banana cake. I don't really care much for bananas and the cake didn't do much for me. But the company was wonderful, and just relaxing after all the stress of work the past few weeks was wonderful.
Friday we headed out from there and I had the idea of coming home on PCH, more for the sightseeing potential than the timeliness of the route. We went by a Fry's, and then a Best Buy to get a car charger for my new iPod (which was suffering from a case of low battery!), and then we stopped by Anime Plus. (Two more Chobits manga and the September issue of NewType, woohoo!)
We then headed to PCH, and stopped at the Santa Monica pier. Not that much to it, really, but it was nice hearing the ocean. My first time at a beach in California, even if I didn't actually go on the beach! We took our time going down PCH, stopping at a few other places along the way... another anime toy shop and a baseball card shop come to my mind. Then we got into the Costa Mesa area and then home.
And today was similar, though with more getting needed shopping chores done, mostly involving dry food for the kitties. And I decided to get a little kitty bed in the hopes that Peanut might like it. So far only Munchie has curled up in it....
We went to a Boomer's in the evening, and played video games. I did some spastic jumping on a DDR machine, and played another rhythm game which is much more hand-centric. Some girl walked up and played that one with me for a while, outclassing me significantly. Although I did manage to hold my own on one song, LOL.
We also put up a door hanging thing we got at Ikea last Saturday. It looks pretty nice, and helps separate the bedroom from the rest of the apartment without having to close the door. And the cats don't have much of an idea about attacking it either, making it quite good.
Anyway... that's what I've been up to the past few days. What about you?
Current Mood: tired
i've never had banana cake but that sounds soooooooo good. did they make it, or is it like something you can buy in the stores?
good luck with the kitty bed. allybug only sleeps in hers when i have someone in bed with me... she is silly like that
what's PCH? like a highway? kinda like skyline drive? me and bart took that home once b/c it was so pretty to drive down.. LONG LONG LONG and very slow driving, but pretty

Peanut got in the kitty bed a little after Sam posted his entry. She didn't stay long, but later when we were heading off to bed, we saw that somekitty had dragged the cushion out of the center of it, a couple feet away up the 3 steps to the dining area. Silly kitties. I put the cushion in again last night and it looks like someone stepped in it, but didn't lay down. I think Peanut's more likely to curl up in it when Sam's not here, since when he is, she always wants to be in his lap, or snuggled up next to him. I call her the little weasel at night, since she comes up on the bed and weasels her way in between us to cuddle.
PCH is Pacific Coast Highway, California Highway 1, and it runs all along the coast. It even goes through a tunnel under the LAX airport, since that is right at the coast. Down near us there are long stretches just along the beach where I think the speed limit is 50 or maybe higher, but the part we took on Friday had a lot of downtown area type streets, and much slower speeds.
