Back to the botan

We went down to the botanical gardens again with (e:mike), (e:libertad) and (e:yesthatcasey). I always feel like I've taken pictures of everything there and posted them already but I took more anyway. It's hard not to.

I really liked the cacti this time. This one is actually really tiny but if you put your phone in the pebbles it's like you're in some sort of crazy desert.

The absolutely best part was Farmer's brown animal show (or whatever it was called) in the back shed.

Look at these buddies.

So freaking cute. I almost want a chicken now.

At the end of the trip we went around to Lackawanna to go to Mulberrys. It was expensive but super delicious. Lackawanna is building a million new homes in the vacant burned out section near Bethlehem Steel. Why?

Spring cleaning

(e:paul) and I cleaned out up the orange room for a spare bedroom and computer space. It was mega messy but it's pretty awesome now.

Afterwards we headed out to Wasabi for a sushi break.

Later that night we headed out with unhibernated (e:yesthatcasey), (e:libertad) and (e:mike) out to the gay bars. They were handing out waffles to advertise some gay fundraiser brunch, and (e:mike) thought it was a good time to tell his story about serving fingertip quiche.
image
At cathode, I thought this was going to be an ad for a gay gym but it sounds more like a bathouse. Same thing? It's also in Syracuse

At Funky Monkey I had a really strange conversation with the owner about how it used to be okay to drunk drive, and now people would rather drink at home if they can't find a way out to the bars without driving, and it wasn't good for business . I don't think he was advocating for drunk driving now but it seems insane to even think about.

Shopping with Mike and Dave

On Saturday we headed back to the Broadway Market with (e:libertad) and (e:mike). This time I saw (e:paul) checking out a guy that turned out to be a former underwear model/Olympian my former crew coach.
image

I got a pierogi, it was pretty good.
Afterwards we headed over to Bed Bath and Beyond. It was mostly full of old lady junk and bullshit like this salt lamp (healing negative ions?) but we did get a discounted soap dish for the bathroom thanks to (e:mike).

Bike season

I am so out of biking shape ;(. Bike butt has been obliterated and replaced with one of a programmer. Now that the roads are ice free I'm back on it and I am in love all over again.

image

I don't care if it's still cold I'm trying to ride every day now. No way am I going to be slow on a bike this summer.

Broadway Market with Masumi

The morning after we headed out to the Broadway market with (e:uchina). It was pretty bumpin. A lot of the food seemed good but a there was a whole bunch of grandmay knick knacks. Signs telling you to stay out of "mom's cave" etc. We got some treats and really amazing tangelos that were a fifth of the coop price.

The highlight was seeing my old boss there with his family. I actually forgot his name and somehow (e:terry) remembered later. He told me knew I would land on my feet after I left right after I left. I don't know why but it felt good - probably because I love my new job a million times more.

I never knew butter lambs came in two poses - head-turned and straight-face. I think the head turned is way cuter. That's a lot of freaking butter though

Two creepy rabbits, one swallowing (e:paul). It kind of reminds me of the Jones Pond furry.

Dirty dancing

We went to the Igloo warehouse rave with (e:uchina). Thankfully there was no starer this time.

It was still fun but definitely not as crazy as the last one. House music isn't really my thing - no drum and bass second story like before. I still got a ton of dancing in, just more work.

Maybe we should have gone crazier because this time we saw how disgusting the warehouse was. From the Union Carbide barrels warning of formladehyde ((e:paul,59916)) to the mysterious floor goop, to the chain-smokestacks I felt like we were going to end up with black lung.

Third world buffalo

We went with (e:uchina) to brunch at Panos. On the way in, we noticed Elmwood smelled like sewage, which is nothing new. On the way out we noticed their rain gardens and sewer intakes were literally spitting out sewage all over the street. notice the toilet paper.

Well, ginger or just cute?

St Patrick's Day parade

It got cray this year.

Breakfast of crazy tea and Flower Power. It's a classier Four Loko. I think it made a difference in me staying up for the whole day this time.
image

Everyone came over. (e:heidi) and (e:dianne) saved the day with some breakfast food for everyone.

My favorite part was the vuzulvea beer funnel at the parade. (e:flacidness), you tried your best.

Buffalo bike party

Our first bike ride of year was the Buffalo bike party. We went with (e:keitht) - it started at Colonial. went down to Founding Father's, MLK Park, and then a fried food party.

We broke away for a while to stop at Mohawk place for infringement. We ended up seeing (e:czarkasm) there.

The ride was short and not too amazing but we met a few cool new people (besides the ride leader who litters cigarette packets). I can't wait for warmer days where people aren't waiting to go inside and the rides go on forever.

Fried oreos are delicious and gross as hell.

(e:paul) and I got to desecrate the expressway.
