Wherein I complain like a yuppie.
1: Dude, I ate at the Monroe Street Bistro last night - a splinter group/clone of Brasserie V.
The food sucked. My duck was still cold in the middle. Fox's pork chop was overdone and paired with this horrid orange sauce.
Booourns!

2: Elsewise? I had a fantastic date with lady_fox last night. Up is adorable and, really, not as sad to me as many of you said. Sure, some parts were heart wrenching but the movie overall was just adorable and well-executed. Minus one issue I had with Teh Bad Guy.

3: Rutabaga in Monona carries Vibram FiveFinger shoes.
Yes, I want them. Running shoes hurt, even good ones. They screw up my balance and pronation and I've always preferred running shoe-less - Princeton Club, however, prefers I don't. :)
Yaaayourns!

Meetings!

I have seen some people wearing those toe shoes before, they look comfortable.

A person on my new team at work had them so I finally got to see them up close! He also pointed me to a store in town so I can get the correct sizing, which is different for shoes of this nature. Yay!

Darn it! Now I want to try them on to see if I like them.

You're evil.

Why do you want to try them/

Want to go on Friday or Sunday?
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: June 17th, 2009 03:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
Let's do Sunday... I think Friday, I might be going to the studio.

Yay! It will be fun! Toe shoes!
Did you see the winter versions? Also: camo feet is funny.
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: June 17th, 2009 03:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
I didn't see winter versions. Must go look now.

They're the neoprene ones.
I'm partial to the KSO model. Keep Stuff Out.

you might be a hipster.

Uh. Duh? Where the shit have you been? I am, in fact, both a hipster and a yuppie. Or as my father calls me, D.I.N.K. Dual income, no kids.

When I was at the MSB I only drank Belgian beer and ate frites. Sorry to hear their food isn't up to par with BV.
abmann From: abmann Date: June 17th, 2009 03:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
The beer list is pretty much identical so I imagine they're fine. And if they use the same fry recipe, they're just fine too. We may have just gotten a bad set of dishes; however, BV has better atmosphere and less haughty waitstaff.

It's all your fault. geez.
narcissuskisses From: narcissuskisses Date: June 17th, 2009 04:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh yeah, their beer and frites were delectable. It's just disheartening to hear that the rest of their food is sub-par.

I take full responsibility.
abmann From: abmann Date: June 17th, 2009 04:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think we should rectify this with a trip to BV tomorrow.
narcissuskisses From: narcissuskisses Date: June 17th, 2009 05:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
I agree to your proposal, good sir.

Hope you weren't referring to me. The scene depicting the passing of time was probably the tenderest side of the film and left me with wet eyes, but it certainly wasn't a melancholy film.

Now, you must go see MOON! You go now!
abmann From: abmann Date: June 17th, 2009 03:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
Not exclusively. A number of friends said the move was extraordinarily sad. I agree that the beginning was quite sad and there were a number of melancholy parts but felt the movie was quite happy and fun otherwise.

We saw up with the kiddlet. She got scared end, but otherwise did very well. We all really liked it.
