Phipps Conservatory pt II

(e:paul) and I got to see the garden again, this time with (e:terry) and with a lot more in bloom! The sustainable building was done too - it didn't have much function but the net-zero energy usage is freaking awesome.

My absolute favorite is the orchid room. So many amazing smells, especially this one which smelled like white chocolate.

Hot Mass and Lucky's

After Tuneyards, we had the most ridiculous night. Booty abounded.

We started off at Luck'ys again which was cool, but not as packed at before. It still had the dive bar, dance-floor-is-gonna-cave feel that I wish Buffalo had.

On the way out, we passed this bail bonds place with an upstairs that (e:paul) and I had wondered about before - turns out it was a bathhouse with a huge rave going on underneath. It was called Hot Mass - Paul has already written about it but it was the one of the best parties I've ever been to (or smelled).

Outside the rave they were playing Judge Judy. Real strange.

tUnE-yArDs

I don't think I've ever heard such a crazy voice before. The show was at a giant old church complex called Mr. Small's fun house.

Everyone in the crowd got so pumped for their best and most popular song - Gangsta.

Brown sugar squash

(e:Paul) cooked up some squash tonight. It was amazing enough just cooked by itself but we put some brown sugar and butter on top. Yum.

Dehording for the party

We spent most of the day today cleaning for this weekend. I think we actually made progress on dehoarding - the back hall is finally clean. On the otherhand we disturbed so many scooters and spiders from their old homes - good thing you moved out yesterday (e:mike).

This back hall window has two different lock parts that don't match up. Jamming a blue cap in it seemed to fix it.

Dog days if Tihar

This weekend I dog sat Midnight for my parents. I really miss him sometimes, but even just seeing him I have to shower and change or else (e:paul) is allergic. :( Still my best bud. I probably was at my parent's for 10 hours this weekend, and walked him for 4 or 5.

image

It was also the day of Tihar, the Hindu dog festival. In Nepal, they celebrate with all dogs, even strays, by feeding them, making them flower necklaces and coloring their schnozzes with pigment. It's a holiday I could get on board with.

Mike and Dave's new house

We all helped out (e:mike) and (e:libertad) move into their new pad. It's weird to see Mike move out - I got used to him as a roommate.

The new house is so cute - both the location and the house itself. It seemed like there were so many new families that had were moving or just moving in too - I can't think of many places in Buffalo like that.

Got to meet Dave's family, who also helped

So much of the woodwork was untouched

Mickey's Halloween

(e:yesthatcasey), (e:steve), Masumi, (e:terry) and I went to Mickey and (e:robert)'s Halloween party Friday night. It was ridiculous. Terry was a mime and I went as Paul - naked, basically. I met a bunch of new people who hopefully will be coming next week,

Rain Barrel

Friday I went down to Riverkeeper to buy a rain barrel for the garage. For $100, we got a barrel, and Riverkeeper gets to keep the profits.

Unfortunately the barrel will crack in the winter. But it should keep the garage drier and the back gardens wet. Plus, it's reused from an olive shipping company. It smells so amazing.

International Institute Dinner

The International Institute dinner was Thursday at the Hotel Lafayette. (e:paul) and I joined the Allen Street crew after work.

The food was real tasty but sadly they ran out of a lot of the veggie things before I got to try them. The best part was that I think the desserts - Bavarian Nut company, and Gelato Gypsy included.

We also saw Seth play for the event.
