It was a beautiful holiday weekend. Truly the weather could not have been any more perfect.

Friday, I planted my seedlings outside, some in the ground, some in pots, and so far most of them are still alive. I also brought the fountain out and got that running. That evening a houseguest arrived and the three of us ate pizza and guacamole out in the garden.

Saturday I saw Speed Racer a second time, then walked around the city for a while and hit some bars with one of my buddies.

Our houseguest brought us a big bottle of Michigan maple syrup, so on Sunday, I cooked up a batch of banana-nut-chocolate chip waffles. Then K. and I decided out guest needed to experience the magic of the soup dumplings so went back there. Then K. and I watched a movie and went out to the Silk City Diner with friends. I had amazing fried chicken there, thus making Sunday an absolutely perfect food day.

Monday morning, K., houseguest, and I went for a great hike along the Wissahickon Creek, then hooked up with some friends for a Memorial Day barbeque and demonstration of that "Wii Fit" game. And we finished off the busy weekend with some water ice and a reviewing of Casino Royale.

What is "water ice"?

I forgot that people from outside Philly don't always know water ice. It's a frozen desert, usually fruit-flavored, kind of like sorbet or a dairy-less gelato or like a popsicle that's been put through a wood chipper. Very, very refreshing.

Sort of, but not less liquified.

You were more than right about "Speed Racer." I'll be posting about it in a bit.

Sweet! I'm glad to hear it's not just me.

I just realized: probably one of the most important things in life is being around the people you love ...
Paris Hilton doesn't think so ... did you see her last video? She is realy NUDE! I saw this video on BBC today!
Crazy people around us!
