Met up w/ 1/2 the Village for lunch at Naan N Curry. Yum Yum. The best dish, imho, is the fish!

Stopped by Common grounds after lunch for coffee and cupcakes.
Here's Maggie dozing off.

black is black

I had this amazing idea to put chandeliers in the windows for holiday. Of course, there's always the budget to consider. We're not Neiman Marcus or Barney's.

I found these online from Urban's for $26 marked down from $36. I went to the one on Capitol Hill and we found only white ones left. The guy marked them down to $9.99 b/c he said they shouldn't even be in the store at this point.

I spent a few hours spray painting them black and woke up the next morning with major carpel tunnel forearm pain. I highly doubt that just using the spray can can cause this much pain.

holiday's around the corner and we've stocked up on jackets, coats, holiday dresses, and handbags. Staffing is still an issue, but I've come to realize that it will always be a challenge as the younger generation simply expect to be compensated highly for very little, if any, work done.

AAA Chinese Buffet

AAA Chinese Buffet, originally uploaded by awungfoo.

We drove up to Everett to watch Meijan's sister Tina Kim perform. She was really funny but I didn't think the 2 comedians before her was all that funny. Maybe because it was in Everett?

We drove by this place, AAA Chinese Buffet. Hey $20 for 2 and 25% off! What a bargain! Lots of fried seafood, sushi, dessert, and a long line. Lots of Asians, Mexicans, and a few token white folks. I guess it's worth the price for the "bulk" of what you'll eat, but in terms of quality, nah.

took a stroll w/ mama this morning. There's a lot of salmon in the lake jumping. Lots of ducks, geese, crows, and seagulls looking for a free meal. The crows and seagulls were eating the dead ducks that washed ashore.

Took this photo while mama was on the outskirts of the lake chirping away.

It' fucking cold outside. I'm tempted to wear thermal underwear. We went to see QUARANTINE yesterday and I was freezing during the entire movie. It wasn't that the movie was all that scary or that the AC was blasting, there was just a chill in the air that went through clothes. I came home and soaked in the tub for hours.

Quarantine was all gore. So if you liked SAW and Hostel, then you'll love this. I had fun.

Babysitting these 2 tonight was a breeze. They played, laughed, asked Neil a hundred questions, attempted to build a crazy building model out of a 1000s parts but abandoned it in a wink of an eye.

When 7:57pm rolled around, they both got up and went to bed. Tyler said he didn't want to sleep alone and I asked Tanner if he was OK with Tyler sleeping with him. Tanner said, "Sure!"

Tyler screamed downstairs that he had to run into his room to get his pillow and blanket. Then Tanner screamed that Tyler was kicking his pillow off the bed. I went upstairs and told them that if they made anymore noise that I would send Tyler back to his room.
No more ruckus after that. When I went up to check on them, they were both sound asleep.

Did anyone watch the debate tonight? I was actually excited to watch it. I don't remember having seen any of the debates in previous years and I was expecting more verbal attacks and differences. I don't think I was the only one who wanted concrete answers from them in regards to what they had plan to do to fix the economy. Fuck the global issues, fix the ones here in the U.S. where it matters most!

Nick from Blue Moon Burger in Fremont stopped by to drop off $2 off coupons so we decided to go there for lunch. I thought the jalepenos poppers would be fresh ones fried whole with cheese but they were the pickled ones battered dip. Interesting but not really spicy.

Danny turns 38 today. Happy Birthday. I forgot the name of the green leaf used for this cake. It had young coconut meat in the center with the whip cream.

Terry make dry rub ribs and steak. We brought garlic pea vines. It was a great get together and Maggie is growing so fast.

It's my photo on the cover of PI online paper! :) Nice! I'm excited to see Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist later today. We finally let go one of our new employees. She was just too much. When we pointed out all the issues we had as to why she's being let go, she started cursing and screaming at Neil in the store. Mental note: Remember to not let them back inside after they've been let go. She said we're firing her because she was our #1 salesperson and all the other girls were jealous of her. Yup, that's a smart way to conduct business, fire your #1 and keep the dead weight? She was so delusional and played the dumb blonde every chance she had. After she was gone, she wrote a lengthy email saying how we were legally to pay her immediately and was going to talk to her lawyer and report us to L&I, blah blah blah. Good riddance!

The economy has finally tanked. Business has slowed down exponentially. We were at U Village to see how other neighborhoods are fairing and I was surprised to see their parking lot very empty. Usually, we can never find parking and end up driving around a few times before anything opens up. Stores were empty with too much inventory and staff just standing around.

The only 2 stores with any activities were Anthropologie and H&M. Anthro had huge sales racks in the back of the store and well, everything at H&M was less than $100. The H&M at U Village is so much better laid out than the flagship store at Southcenter. Well edited and to the point.

Hope this weekend's sales are good. We need it. Our lease is coming up for renewal and our landlord is jacking it up 30% with only 2 years on it. What an asshole. There are assholes and then there are major fucking assholes. No one who leases from them like them, not even the people at Starbucks. What to do?

You can be assured that whenever you visit an Anthropologie, you'll be blown away by their window merchandising and displays. Imaginative, creative, fun, whimsical, and so fresh!
