Got up early and drove to Becker MN to look at furniture with monstersocks (she'd like a new chair). We came back and met erikerat Como Zoo and wandered around for a little while looking at monkeys and other animals. Ran into 433 in the Como Conservatory. Unfortunately we got to the Japanese Garden right around closing time so we couldn't spend a whole lot of time there. A return trip will be required. Went out to dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory with monstersocks, eriker, sxoidmal, Mike and Alison. komatoast and sworskogsfru couldn't make it due to their recent problems. After dinner monstersocks and I went to Target for a little shopping, then back to my place for some good old fashioned TiVo.
