this past monday was my one year anniversary with seamonkey_mags. yay! i gave her a nice vase of flowers, and we celebrated with dinner at a korean/japanese restaurant on bank st. i had some quite yummy sushi.
this week we finished booking our basic itinerary for the trip to arizona for my dad's wedding. we're flying out on april 2nd, and coming back on april 8th. we'll be staying at an awesome hotel in scottsdale for a few nights, that is right in the shopping district, and only about a kilometre away from the phoenix zoo! yay zoo! i'm stoked for this trip. i need a good vacation.
i bought a new belt, calvin klein white dress shirt, a nice set of titanium cuff links, and a blue striped geoffrey beene tie [All net profits from Geoffrey Beene products are donated to philanthropic causes, such as cancer research, Alzheimer's research, domestic violence prevention and response, Save the Children, and educational programs (including scholarships for students majoring in fashion and related disciplines) - that's pretty cool]. now i'm all prepped for the wedding, clothes-wise.
this coming monday is seamonkey_mags' birthday, so we went to the byward market this morning, and i got her some new shorts and some new hunter wellington rubber boots (see? aren't they nice?). hey, if they're good enough for the queen of england and kate moss...
then we picked up various yummies at the sausage kitchen (pepperettes and fanta!) and nicastro's (fancy malt vinegar, olives stuffed with garlic, and half a kilo of chocolate!), and ate an unhealthy brunch at mcdonald's.
we also went for a 2k run this afternoon, and seamonkey_mags got her taxes done. and i fit some time in for a little nap. yay productive day!
soon i will post a new entry with music reviews. listening to lots of great new stuff right now, especially the new frightened rabbit album.
nine days 'til my birthday, people! what are y'all getting me?!?!
