Thoroughly Whomped

So renewed love for Canasta suddenly turns into remembered disgust when I lose utterly and completely to Angela last night while watching the convention. Love canasta, which is a version of rummy that can create major point stress.  Lots of melds and draws and bonuses for red 3's that aren't usually included in solitaire, for example.

I'm also missing the Lion King on broadway, which is what Chris is doing right now. He and his brother and some friends went up to New York to do some sightseeing this weekend. I was too pooped from a recent workshop I attended to tag along.

Tonight Angela came over and we made coconut shrimp and Annie Chun's noodles; then off to the mall!  We scoured the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, where a pair of hip new shoes and the best natural skincare products were purchased; Benetton having a fabulous 50% off sale; and Sephora!    Don't you like how I added all those great links? It's like follow jane around the mall!

We went to DC Coast this past week. Let me tell you something. If you ever go to DC Coast, have the lobster bisque. Just have it. No no, don't question the lobster bisque. Just trust me.
