spacemonkeyluvn: (yeh:: hearts)
Currently at my dad's in San Jose. Went to South First Friday last night. Before we started walking around, we ate at Caffe Triste. I had a mortadella and goat cheese panini while people in the cafe played piano and sang opera. Then we walked around for a bit. Saw some cool stuff, got some free comics, got a pin that says 'I (pair of glasses with hearts in the lenses) Geeks' and I got an ice cream/cookie sandwich from Treatbot, A Karaoke Ice Cream Truck from the Future. I also stayed up until about 2.30am and FINALLY finished Good Omens. SUCH a good book. But everyone already knows that ;)

Today we had homemade pizza (OMGSOGOOD) and I bought a yellow purse at T.J. Maxx. I needed a summer purse *shrug* Dad, stepmom, and I actually just came back from a 10pm showing of 'Plan 9 From Outer Space' in 3D downtown. My first time seeing it and it was HILARIOUS. The best way to watch a bad movie for the first time is definitely in a theatre filled with fans who love and love to mock. The alien was describing a weapon using 'science' that made NO sense, and some guy in the front yelled out 'THAT'S NOT HOW IT WORKS!' Good times ♥

One thing I always like about visiting them is that they DO stuff. I know my mom can't afford it and is usually in too much pain or too tired, but it's nice sometimes to go out and do stuff with people. I also got my taxes done. I owe $8 to the state - I think if you owe less than $10, you shouldn't have to pay at all - but at least I'll be getting a couple hundred back from my Federal taxes. I will be saving most of it (aka using it for student loans/food/gas) but I think I will spend a little on myself. One or two things from Etsy and the Starfleet sweatshirt. Then I'm good.

I also told them about my possible plans for baking/pastry school. I was scared about what they would think, but they seem to be happy about it. They seem to think it sounds like it could be a good fit for me and my dad was even saying that I should just really keep them in the loop and they could maybe help out if I needed it. I know I complain a lot sometimes, and sometimes it feels justified, but there are many things I'm very lucky about.

OH! And my dad, who already has a dark room for his photography, a professional digital camera, a kiln for melting glass, and who makes his own beer, mead, sausages, pasta, some cheese, and I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting, is now getting a real pizza oven and a beehive to make his own honey. I just. Jack of all Trades, my father is (except my dad is actually good at all this stuff). However, once again, I can't really complain because I get to reap the benefits. First thought when I heard about the beehive/honey thing though was 'my dad is turning into Sherlock Holmes' ^_^

Anyhoo, I'm sure you're all super excited, but once I get home I'll post a couple pictures I took while I was over here. Just with my phone though. Didn't think to bring my camera :/
