Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
Another good weekend. Started with dinner at Restaurant Alma on Friday. Tiny and expensive but quite very, very good. We watched a little bit of Immortal but it was moving a little slowly so we switched over to a couple episodes of The IT Crowd on the Xbox instead.

Saturday I somehow managed to get up before monstersocks and picked up some pastries from A Baker's Wife and coffee for breakfast. Later we went out to the zoo and a failing yarn store. We followed that with an early dinner at True Thai which was very good. Unfortunately that also meant that we were not available for dinner with viksin when she called shortly before we came home. After seeing a post from alisgray we went out to the MoA so that monstersocks could visit her first Lush store on this continent. We ended the day with more of the IT Crowd.

Sunday I slept in, then we went out and did a little more furniture shopping.

In less interesting news I'm quite pleased to finally have an entertainment center setup where any device can be chosen and activated from a single remote. I've come somewhat close before but was always stymied by the game console problem and ended up needing manual switchboxes. With a Harmony remote that I got for my birthday and a couple of remote controlled switchboxes it finally just works.

"A failing yarn store" you say?

Yep, Clickety Sticks over in Minneapolis. They're having a going out of business sale until everything is sold, then they're shutting down. monstersocks could tell you much more about the yarn than I could.

The have nice (expensive) yarns, somewhat discounted. For instance, I got some yarn that they had originally marked 8-something, marked down to 6-something. I saw it online today for 7-something. So, probably worth a look, but not dirt cheap yet.
