Friday: Dad & stepmom came over to visit and help install things. First was the cat door, then a shelf to hold the microwave. They also donated their long neglected fish tank to me. Living in it with no filter for the past 2 years was an ancient kulhi loach. I'm pretty sure this thing was at least 12 years old, if not more. Needless to say, the stress of moving and cleaning the tank was too much for the poor old man. Too bad.
Saturday: Went to visit Anthony's friend, then to the Super 88 for shopping and lunch. This is the big Asian grocery store in the Boston area. We had the best scallion pancake ever and bought some palm sugar so we can make Thai food. Then we met Blue and her boyfriend to watch a reenactment of the Boston Massacre. Who remembers how many people died in said massacre?
It was 5. I always thought that was sort of a low number. I mean, "massacre" sort of implies lots and lots of bodies, but I guess there weren't that many people around back then. Also there's the thing about them being unarmed civilians and whatnot.
Then, as if that wasn't already a wonderful day, we went to my favorite restaurant, Anna's Taqueria. I haven't been there in ages, and guess what they make now? HORCHATA!!!!
When we got home our first netflix movie was waiting for us. I give Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
eleven million stars because it made me laugh out loud several times and was all around a thoroughly enjoyable movie. I remember I wanted to see it when it first came out...not sure why I waited so long.
Sunday: Deacon graduated (officially)! It was pretty awesome to see him again. He seemed happy to see me too, which was nice. I can tell he is in good hands. He looks trim and he was sort of prancing. He's never been a bubbly dog, but he comes pretty close now that he's doing what he was meant to do. I really never thought I would see him prance. I cried a little.
