I signed the lease for my new apartment today! The property manager is *crazy* but the tenants I met said she's right on top of maintenance. She's got a thing about bugs and women in headscarves and unemployed or disabled people.

[btw, i'm done being pissed. sorry for being a brat!]

I also sold FOUR of my photos!!! I'm so excited. That more than covered all my expenses for Infringement Festival.

So I'm planning to move 8/28 & 8/29 and would love love love and deeply appreciate your help! I have a small apartment and light furniture. It took *maybe* an hour for three people to move all my stuff from a U-Haul to my apt when I moved in in 2008 (Thank you, (e:chico)!). There will be plenty of beer (and pizza or other yummies) available. If there seems to be a time that works for a couple people, we can make a party out of it.

I don't have any basil to make pesto with this summer, but I know other (e:peeps) do. It's so yum. A suggests that I shouldn't ever give out my true recipes to preserve the specialness of what I make, but I do anyway.


2 c fresh basil, tightly packed *
2 T pine nuts **
2 large cloves of garlic, peeled
1 T lemon juice
3 T+ extra virgin olive oil
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
2 T. Romano cheese, freshly grated

Mix all but the cheeses in a blender or food processor until fine. Mix with cheeses in bowl. Eat.
  • spinach can be substituted for some basil
  • walnuts can be substituted for pine nuts, but pine nuts are highly recommended.

A friend and I went to Mezza for dinner last night. I should have taken pictures because the presentation was beautiful. (e:paul);51969 Paul's review

Fatayer (spinach, cilantro, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil on a pita-type pastry): my favorite item.
Tabouli: excellent
Falafel: it was boring, dry, and the wrong texture - much more finely ground ingredients which made it feel like a dry potato. The tahini lacked flavor.
Warak Anab (stuffed grape leaves): served warm, the rice was mushy. It felt heavy. Couldn't taste the mint.
Beef shwarma (Lana's choice): she said it was dry but tasty. Came with nice side salad and choice of potatoes. Lana got the spicy cubed potatoes, but she said they were just seasoned, not spicy.
Beer selection: nice I didn't review the wine list. They have a full bar.
Service: attentive, friendly
Atmosphere: we couldn't get a spot on the patio and we were seated on the 1.5 floor. Very pretty place.

Mezza website

The menu didn't quite have enough explanation of the words used so it took a while to figure out an order. There's only one vegetarian entree and it's for two people ($24.99), and wraps seem like lunch food, which is why I went with the selection of mezzas.

I hate my apt management company and want to move out of my cute sunny 1 bdrm apt. when my lease is up at the end of the month. I've already given notice. I found a nice two-bedroom (dog & cat friendly, central air) in my neighborhood. And then my roommate option backed out. So I either need a new roommate RIGHT NOW so we can get the apt Monday or I have to find the elusive 1-bdrm or big studio that I can afford that's still metro walkable. Anyone got ideas? Roommate?

(e:Terry) and I saw a couple performances last night.

Ulysses' Crewmen by Insurgent Theater


You Know This Girl by C. Frances Fallon

I'm still not sure how I feel about Ulysses' Crewmen. It was very intense, and brutal, a raging critique of postmodern capitalism and the impossibility/futility of escape. Powerful acting. Causes discomfort. Playing tonight, 6:00 @ Sugar City and tomorrow at Broadway Market.

You Know This Girl: You gotta see it. Seriously excellent & funny one-woman show. Tonight, 7:30 @ Sugar City. You get merch for your $10 voluntary donation. She's goin' places.
