I hope you all take advantage of going to this FREE garden in the heart of Bellevue. The peonies have all gone away, but lots of new flowers budding and rose hips have started plumping up.

NW Source had people choose what they're favorites are for 2007 and it seems 0/8 was selected for "new eats" "best place for seafood" and "best place for big parties". It was ok. I think the seared calamari was the best. It was like eating thick meaty fish that chewy calamari. Everything was just ok.
We came home tonight and Neil yells at me to go look at Rocco. He hides behind the cushion and he chews up fabric. So we have to change out towels every week for him to destroy. Neil found a big ass egg. Of course, it's not fertilized but she's nesting. And mean!
She's around 6-7. I hope she doesn't have anymore. It looks pretty painful.
A few weeks ago, we took a trip to Vegas and had a quick layover in PDX. I forgot about these ariel views. I didn't realize how green WA really is and saw a lot of dried up streams and rivers. Whether it's a cause of global warming or not, it was shocking to see how fragile everything has become.

We had dinner at Applebee's. The shrimp spinach salad was ok.
Neil had NY steak. He liked it.
Before dinner, we saw an afternoon viewing of Ratatouille. I have to say that 2 good movies in a row is quite unheard of. Die Hard was fun and this movie was very cute. It's very hard to think that a kitchen full of rats cooking makes for good eats, but it all works.
I've taken my ass off the couch and started exercising again. It feels good. I've dropped 5 lbs in a week. Getting there! :) No more (less) junk and crap. Got more energy and eating less. Funny how working out makes me realize how huge portions I eat and I stop myself just when I'm almost full. I hate stuffing my silly to the point of throwing up. Well, holidays, Vegas eating, birthdays, BBQ, fine dining, eating in HNL, and bubble tea doesn't count....does it?
Saw Live Free or Die Hard...Totally awesome Summer blockbuster 'in ya' face" hardcore action!
The banter, comments, remarks is "dead on" funny and hilarious! I give it to Bruce Willis for reprising this role in his 50s. he's still got it...and oh so way better than Stallone! Cameos by Kevin Smith is funny and typical of his character. I really like the scenes with Maggie Q and Bruce Willis. Go see it, you'll agree!

I thought it was pretty funny. What to do with this mess?
It's a photo you'd find in the fashion mess section of some women's fashion magazine. I'm tempted to just go buzz it off myself. I need to make an appt.

And for the ugly crocs...well, I have to admit that they make great house slippers especially in the morning when my foot is stiff.
BTW, Nachan...I got you the screaming Charlie Brown tee. I'll let you know when it arrives.

Strawberry Crepe with fresh cream
Originally uploaded by awungfoo
Ugh! I wanted to get out of the house and instead of going to Burien for their Strawberry festival, we ended up at Crossroads. The food sucked and not a single strawberry stand around. The only strawberries I found were in these crepes.

Thanks Teri for recommending the place. I really like Kirkland. It's so pretty and gorgeous the last 2 times we came. I received 2 Wii games from The Village and a gift card for Nordstrom from Teri. Thank you !!! Neil's brother was able to join us for dinner and he got us a new wireless keyboard and mouse from MS. Max thinks they're toys :(
Thanks also to everyone for the birthday wishes!

Love the Wii. Played Wii w/ Neil's brother, Danny, who's in town. He beat my ass in Tennis and bowling.
And we ran away to Vegas last week. So I guess I've used up my bday points for the year!

Tuesday: Went to Mandalay Spa and had awesome massage.
Wednesday: Went to Hilton Spa. Not so good.
Thursday: Went to QUA Spa @ Caesar. Heaven!
QUA was voted best spa in the world. There's roman baths, amazing steam, sauna, artic room that snows!, and it's 30,000 sq ft!
Shopped a bit. Come in June/July when it's really slow. You don't have to wait for a cab and everything is on sale. Sure it's hot as hell, but it's cheap! I hate coming down during the trade shows when you wait an hour to hail a cab and stand in line for hours for food.

Everytime my PT moved my foot this way or that, she kept asking if it hurt or painful. I said NOPE. I asked her why and she said that most of them don't have the flexibility or range of motion and usually scream that they were still in pain. I told her they were probably lying and wanted to stay at home longer. Or collect L&I as long as possible. My doctor ended my L&I claim just a little over a month! :(
So the good news is that my rehab is exceeding their expectation except with a little scarring and slight swelling that's typical.
Woo Hoo! Neil's sister sent me a shitload of chinese herbs and remedies to take during my recovery. I can't say that was it but I think the whole comprehensive approach did it!
Now, what to do with the scar!?
I think I like games that start and end quicky. These adventure games are for serious gamers which I am not! Give me MarioKart anyday! I hear it's in the works!
