Last week scurried by. The stressors are resolving, or at least ratcheting down to a dull roar. The heat wave has broken, and it rained on Sunday. The air is still quite humid, but I like it that way. 😉 At least I can breathe again.
Friday night was date night with my Sweetie — Sushi and “Spamalot”. Very enjoyable. We ate at Domo in Brookside. It was our first visit. The atmosphere is very nice, and the staff attentive. I struggled at first to find something on the sushi menu that wasn’t raw or fried. Although there was a communication gap between me and the server, we finally determined that the Sunrise Roll would suit my needs. The chef even came to the table to verify the ingredients and how they were prepared. It was quite good. Sweetie had the spicy tuna roll, and pronounced it good. (Word of warning: bring your reading glasses: the menu details are in 6 pt type. What goober designer came up with that?)
“Spamalot” was quite fun, punctuated by moments that were waaaay over the top. Sweetie and I had re-watched “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” earlier in the week to get in the mood for it, and I’m glad we did. I had not seen “Holy Grail” in years. I enjoyed both very much. I’m also reminded of just how many catch-phrases from the movie have been part of my vocabulary since high school, and how many still surface from time to time. (“It’s only a flesh wound”, “I’m not dead yet”, “It’s only a rabbit!” being at the top of the list.)
This week’s projects: finish up some long-delayed web work for the sites I manage, update my own if I can find the time, and finish re-arranging the detritus in my studio to accommodate a set of flat files I’m getting from a co-worker. (Flat files! For free! My own holy grail, and big enough to hold my mat board and my large drawings! And I’m told that the top makes a great work surface. Score!)

Our flat files at work
and we have half-an-acre of them, are a great work surface–these are metal, they’re where we keep the light-table thingie and the paper cutters, and if you need to spread stuff out and work they’re great.
In the old office they were stacked so that there were two (two up) as a middle table in the room and the others were a wall-o’flat files, now they’re two up all in a bigger room.
Good for you, yaay you!

Not anywhere that I was. Wish it had.

That’s bad enough. Then pair it with the low light levels found in many restaurants, and add in printing the menu on a dark paper… I’ve seen it all (except for the print on those menus <G>).
