I saw Kick Ass this weekend with a bunch of coworkers from the bookstore, and I LOVED it. Seriously, I heart Hit Girl – she’s one of the baddest ass action heroes that I’ve ever seen. Check her out, but not at work because much like Hit Girl herself, this video is violent and crude.
On Saturday night me, the Hubby, and our good friend Courtney went to Psycho Suzi’s, a fantastic hipster tiki-themed bar in Nordeast Minneapolis. They’ve got famous tiki drinks like The Native’s Curse, the Crummy Scoundrel and their over-sized version of a group punch bowl, the Flaming Pele.
I ordered a drink special that had a really geeky chemistry theme – the Tikium Euphorium, chemical symbol “Te”. I was hoping to be able to read the description on the sign in this picture, but sadly it’s a leeetle to small to see. I don’t know any cool computer tricks to blow it up and maintain the resolution, but hey – it’s still a cut pic of moi!
Another great thing about Psycho Suzi’s is the trailer-trash appetizers – we ordered tater tots and pickle roll ups – dill pickles rolled in ham and cream cheese…mmmm….
On Sunday I took Ashley to the Como Zoo in St. Paul. We were going to take an Adventure Drive down to Manketo…oops, so an Adventure Drive is when you decide how much time you want to spend going in any one direction, then you draw a radius around your starting point, pick a direction or a highway and go explore. But sadly, at our fueling stop (that’s the Carribou Coffee, not the gas station), I discovered that I had left my wallet at home. By the time we got back to Minneapolis, we didn’t have nearly enough time to make it to Manketo, so we decided to shelf the Adventure Drive and go to the Conservatory and Zoo.
