Congealingly (i know that isn’t a word) cheesy metaphor, je sais, je sais…but I suppose the most accurate and cliche simile appropriate to describe the sort of weekend that has just passed.
It all began on Thursday night with Yurop’s 22nd Birthday (and first day of work) (Yes, he indeed is back from Nepal after that dramatic, emotionally-wrecking goodbye we went through last month)…
We got our classy on at Martini Vault in the Pearl District and ordered some undocumented-due-to-extreme-hunger chicken skewers, tzatziki & Dolmas, and chicken pizzette
Friday was a rare breed of a day- one accentuated by sunshine, clear mountain visibility, and temperatures exceeding 55 degrees Fahrenheit…which only means one thing in my vocabulary: silky sundresses
Après a failed attempt at doing work in the library (turned more into a social rotation of whichever of my friends happened to walk by), Nazu and I headed down to the Alphabet District for a late lunch at Serratto and absolutely essential manicure pedicure to compliment the nude patent heels I picked up at Nordstrom the prior evening…
After getting our nails up to snuff, we headed home to get dressed up for the night, went out (well, it was a school-affiliated event), came back around 2 or 3 in the am, had a yoghurt (strawberry Siggi’s in my case) and promptly fell asleep
Saturday we were all understandably exhausted in which case some major (further exhausting) Indian food was in order. In this case, Naz and I decided to go try the Beaverton location of Swagat, located inside a house (and actually tastier albeit much slower-serviced than the NW 21st location)
(unpictured): Garlic Naan, Papadums, Idli Sambar, Dahi (since the Raita had chopped capsicum in it, which I am allergic to…or rather utterly repulsed by)
Since we were in Beavertown (that’s not a misspelling), we also stopped over to Apna Bazaar, the Indian supermarket to pick up a few essentials- in my case that would be this:
Unfortunately, my weekend of sunshine has come to an end as the rain is back, I’ll probably be back to wearing black and gray, and be heading to the library at some point to ACTUALLY do the ridiculous amount of work that awaits my reluctant attention.
How was your weekend?
What’s a vegetable you are absolutely repulsed by?
