Get me outa here!

And onto the weekend!  Seriously.

1) Papa Murphy's for dinner.  An amazingly tasty way to begin the weekend, right?
2) A package waiting on the porch from Alice.  Okay, so, I LOVE Target, but I'm really loving Alice more right now.  Free shipping, and I don't have to deal with the rude Canadians at the store!  WOO WOO!
3) Some color and a wax at Gene Juarez.  It's about time, peeps.
4) Maybe, just MAYBE a stop at the Coach store.  I need want a wallet.
5) Hanging out with the mom doing some shopping
6) Taking Mom to see Stars on Ice as her belated moms-day gift. She just wants to see Evan Lysachek. BTW, that is the CHEESY photo of him ever on the website.  We've seen him before, and I'm sure I have his photo that I could upload with this...must find it, tho.  Unfortunately Johnny Weir[d] was the 'star' giving autographs last time, so maybe this will be her lucky event?
7) Staying at the Maxwell overnight.  Doesn't it look swanky and fun?  I can't wait to see if it lives up to expectation. 
8) Eating breakfast out in Seattle...but where???  I guess we have to decide.  I'd like crumpets at Pike Place, but I'm not sure I have a buy-in with the mom. 
9) Folklife festival
10) Home, and it's only Sunday afternoon...NAP! NAP! NAP!
11) Some Small World with Loren
12) Memorial Day, remembering those who have died while in the service of our country.



Loren and I were chuckling over the GEEK HEIRARCHY at lunchtime yesterday.  We got quite a few chuckles out of it, as we are, or know, someone in a lot of the boxes.  And for the most part, it is true.  We question the position of LARPers, but that discussion is for another time.  What I want to educate you all on is FURRIES.  Now, according to geek heirarchy, furries are the lowest on the chart.  Until yesterday I'd never heard of furries.  According to Wikipedia, Furry fandom (also known as furrydom, fur fandom or furdom) refers to the fandom for fictional anthropomorphic animal characters with human personalities and characteristics.  Not so odd...and who am I to judge, as I have an affinity for elf culture (lol...get the reference?). However...some take it to the next level.  And I can't lie, I couldn't wait to google furries acting as Star Trek characters.  Yes, friends, it can be said that people dress up as an ocelot and pretend to be Captain Kirk.  I.am.not.making.this.up. Unfortunately, I had to cut my googling short, as most of it seemed to be tied to ... well ... more adult forms of role play.  An image from Wikipedia to close:
