Thursday Thirteen, ed. xxii

Thirteen Thoughts from InterstellarLass

1. Heroes came back on this week! Yay! I’ve been missing it! Now the story can continue. Have you watched too?

2. It’s warmed back up here in Texas. Nice and cool in the 40s and low 50s. Makes me want to take a long walk.

3. Elle had to spend three days at school without her glasses…she left them at her dad’s house. She didn’t bother to tell me until Tuesday evening.

4. I have four knitting projects, sitting, begging to either be finished or started. I think I got a little burnout after Christmas. But I’m about ready to get them started again.

5. My hip/backside is starting to feel a bit better. It was still rather sore yesterday. Like I got a shot in by backside. I think I might go to yoga tonight and stretch it.

6. My flowerbeds seem to be OK. My pansies appear to have survived The Great Freeze. Some of my bulbs had already started to sprout before the freeze. I wonder if my tulips will poke through before Easter.

7. Last night Nick and I went to dinner. The food was pretty good, but the service was horrible. This kid ignored us as much as possible. I typically like my cappucino with my dessert, not after. Don’t you?

8. We were going to see The Painted Veil, but ended up missing the start due to the slow service, so we walked around the shopping/restaurant area we were in.

9. We heard music coming from a place across the street, so we went to check it out. The place is called Martini Park! Sounded like my kind of place at first, but we spotted four bouncers with earpieces and microphones, and two hostesses that were hasseling a non-fabulous looking lady in jeans and we looked at each other and said “uh uh”. We don’t do pretentious.

10. So we walked around a bit, puffed on some cigars we’d picked up in a very nice cigar shop around the corner. I had a nice little baby vanilla flavored cigarillo.

11. On the way home we spotted a place that’s opened up near our house. It used to be a Burger King if that tells you anything. They had a shuffleboard table, 2 pool tables, and lots of seating space. The guy had a good selection of beers on draught, but couldn’t sell any…still waiting for the liquor license. I was bummed but accepted a ‘free’ Bud Light to be polite.

12. Over the weekend I was making a martini, and my new shaker broke. It was glass, and evidently not very good glass. I put ice in and it broke right through the side. So, we bought a metal one.

13. I love my sweetie. He’s such a good sweetie. I hope I tell him enough. I love you Nick baby.

  1. Nice TT….I haven’t watched Heroes, even though I hear tons of people talking about it. I just can’t watch it because it seems like a rip off of the 4400 to me…and I adore that show.

    My TT is up…feel free to come on by and visit!

  3. The metal ones are better then the glass ones anyway, I have used both. Though yes, we dont do pretentious either.

  4. Happy Thursday! Good luck with the knitting projects. I have three or four sitting around that I need to pick up and finish too.

  5. I have only watched a few episodes of Heroes. I really liked it. I need it to come out on DVD.

    I get so frustrated w. slow service at restaurants.

    Sounds like a fun nite. Cigars? Who woulda thought.

  6. What happening with the liquor licenses!? It is the same story here in Georgia. Weird.

  7. I didn’t know that you knitted! How cool!

    My oldest just got glasses, and she’s doing OK keeping track of them, but I worry about them. A lot.

    My T13 is up!

  8. Love the list. Watched Heroes last season but life is getting in the way:( Hopefully they will come out w/ a complete season CD and i can keep up and watch it all in one season!

    Excitement. Suspense. Passion

  9. I have not gotten into “Heroes” this time. I watched the first few episodes but missed a few, and never started again. Everyone says it is such a good show.
    Maybe I will have to get the DVD’s if they ever come out.

  10. Glad you’re feeling better. Hope it’s nothing serious. My achilles have been feeling sore when I run lately. I’m getting old.

  11. Great TT. I’m not much into Heroes, but it always looked interesting. Nice to hear that some plants survived the Freeze. Happy Thursday!

  12. I haven’t watched Heroes yet, either. Thursday nights for me always include Grey’s Anatomy.
    Re: your previous post: I just started 4 Blind Mice by James Patterson. I’ll let you know if it was any good. Just picked it up at the drugstore on a whim!

  13. Don’t even get me started about all the knitting I’m letting languish in various piles!! So much to do, so little time! Esp. when we’re having so much fun TTing! Great list – the random thoughts ones are always a fave with me 🙂 Have a great evening!

  14. Painted Veil is one of my favorite Maugham stories. Hope you do get to go!

  15. Yay! I love heroes – but the episodes always seem so short.

    Bummer about your shaker – take it back and get a refund – even bad glass shouldn’t break that easily.

    Bad service – stiff them. That is the only thing that communicates. Hard as it is to do, sometimes you must.

    Good thirteen.

  16. Sounds like a perfectly perfect evening. I hope you left next to nothing, if anything for tip for the horrible service. I really hate bad service.

  17. I’m glad your hip is feeling better. I saw Heroes too and I’m not sure what I think yet. I missed the whole first season so I’m coming to the party late…
