Kevin's birthday

After Erica's show, I met up with Emily, Kevin, Catherine, Mike and a few other people at Essex for Kevin's birthday. Unfortunately they don't have a fryer, and we needed fried cheese so we went over to Providence for food. On the way home I walked past Essex again and saw Callie and her brother outside, so I hung out with them and got myself whooped at darts.

Catherine's rant about Essex, fried food and patriotism

I really like recording sounds lately. It's easier to capture than video and I think people don't change their behavior as much because there's no visual. Sometimes video is just superfluous especially when it's someone just talking in a dark bar.

Erica's showcase

(e:czarkasm) had an hourlong show tonight at Nietzsche's. (e:Terry) and i got there a little late but she absolutely rocked it. For her closing mashup of Sweet Dreams, I heard the two guys next to us talking about how they excited they we're for it.

Now I'm on the way to Kevin's 22nd birthday at Essex.

Father's day part zwei

After father's day at (e:paul)'s parents', I rode a mile over to my parent's house. Of course this meant a second dinner, plus desserts. My mom made falafels for me since they were eating burgers and sausages. For dessert, we had my dad's favorite, an orange cake with orange glaze on top. They needed to go to Anderson's after dinner also, since father's day means free ice cream for dads.

I continued the housework trend for the day by cleaning out my parent's gutters. Suprisingly they were clean. The gutter mesh they put over them really worked.

Father's day part eins

For father's day, I spent the first half up at Paul's parents house, also for Tony's birthday. It was an early dinner, so I got to eat amazing food, like the marinated artichokes, dandelion cakes, cheese potatoes, amd vegetables.

Afterwards I helped (e:paul) and (e:terry) remortar the chimney for a bit. So much of it crumbled away - Paul actually completely pulled out a brick entirely at one point. It wasn't the cleanest job but hopefully it'll hold up for a while.

For future reference, Quickrete mix used as mortar takes approximately a 4:1 ratio of water:mortar mix.

Busted up fence

Franklin Street for the most part is the ass-end of buildings on Main Street and Delaware. But the west side of the 500 block is especially bad with unmaintained parking lots spilling out onto the sidewalk. This fence for lot at 603 Delaware is so messed up. It's the jankiest on a block of already terrible looking lots. Why even bother with a fence at this point? Who are you stopping from entering when it's only partially there?

The county GIS system says the property is owned by DANFB LLC, which according to this Buffalo Rising article is a subsidiary of Benderson (blech), or possibly just Alliance Advisory Group right now. I want to find out who so I can write them.

Nothing drives me crazier than fences and parking lots.

Heidi's birthday

After the art festival, we celebrated (e:heidi)'s birthday belatedly and a visit by her friends at our house.

It ended up being a pretty good night. I ate too much bean dip. (e:paul) and I put some whipped cream and blueberries and shortbread cookies - it was delicious.

Co-op sells beer

The coop sells beer now. You think it would be bougerificly expensive but it wsa $8.99 for a 6 pack of Southern Tier and $16.99 for a 12 pack, which is in line (or maybe cheaper) than Elmwood Market. If you ask me though, a keg of Flower Power would probably come at a bulk rate and be the most cost effective option for our household.

Allentown Art Festival


Maybe I would like it I'd it if I were a middle aged suburban woman. A lot of the stuff is the trinkets about wine and their dogs I feel like old people just fill their houses with.

It wasn't too hot though, and I got to walk around with (e:Paul). The people watching was interesting too - it's the intersection of a lot of different groups of people in one place.

Big Black Rock Dock


At work today, I had to go out in a boat with some of my coworkers and inspect the Black Rock Canal park dock. It's so decayed - you can poke through the webs and flanges of the steel beams with your finger. I'd almost be scared to go underneath with the boat but it's stood for this long. Good thing it is closed.

Tricolor Pulao

We didn't have the right ingredients to make a curry with paneer, so instead (e:terry) and I made a Tricolor Pulao. It was super simple - just cook some vegetables with cumin, chili powder and some other spices, and then add the rice to cook with the vegetables. It turned out okay, but adding habanero salsa added enough spice.
