heely’s roller shoes!
|post 410 ~ okay, a barrage of random goodies ;)
- friends & hooters ~ yesterday, wednesday the 11th, after another visit to the local clinic (giving blood/urine samples), drove to the post office… finally mailed out my package to for her 25th birthday next week… plus picked up my shipment from japan: two circular mirror bases for my free-standing figures…
that afternoon, another fun midday chat with anna and took some photos of my cubicle and my outside view from the third floor, not bad!… also helped vanessa clean/spruce up her resume…
LOL, and since i’ve never been to one, anna suggested that i try a “hooters” restaurant for the FIRST time (she worked at a “hooters” during her recent 3-month visit to the US and loved it, especially the hot wings!), i decided to ask vanessa about it… in fact, vanessa had just gone there last week with don and kiyomi, and the week before!… she also mentioned how great the wings were!… so now, a group of us are shooting for lunch for this or next week (friday the 13th or tuesday the 17th)…
interesting tidbit: the “hooters” that anna worked at in carolina was more family-oriented, waitresses wore short shorts but with regular shirts… however, according to vanessa, the “hooters” on sahara was not so family-friendly: “The waitresses wear really short orange shorts and tank tops with their boobs hanging out. Guys enjoy it… however we gals enjoy the food.”… independently-owned apparently, LOL ;)
then that night, finally completed the composite of 4 photos from vanessa’s son’s birthday party… former and current co-workers of the legendary “RF Code” gang, LOL!
- genshiken figures ~ over the last couple days, two more figures from the college-life otaku/geek comedy “genshiken”… the raven-haired “ohno” on the far left and the anime-within-an-anime “ritsuko” character on the far right… found them at decently discounted prices at robert’s anime corner store, and on ebay… NICE!
- heely’s roller shoes ~ today, thursday the 12th, FINALLY remembered to google for “sneakers with wheels”… the result: roller shoes! YES!… the reason: well, for months, years, i’ve always envied kids who rolled around on these inventive contraptions!…
i mean, listen to this little habit of mine: for months now, each week i visit the VONS grocery store, i lay my shoulder-strap case/bag into the grocery cart, then run-and-ride the cart from station to station, pick up my items, then run-and-ride to the next aisle, and the next… hahaha, i especially love the long wide freezer aisles when i can just run at full speed, hop onto the back, and ride all the way to the haagen daz sorbets (hmmm, strawberry, lemon and mango!)… and then another great long ride to the check out stations… but the BEST part comes AFTER checkout… since the parking lot slopes downward away from the store, i run hard from the entrance, then ride the grocery cart maybe a couple-dozen parking spaces down to my camry… NICE!… so why not add “roller shoes” to the rest of my day and week, right? LOL ;)
