Our fascinating weekend.

Watched Attack of the Clones last night in preparation for the Big Day this coming Thursday. Picture quality is even better since I switched from composite to S-Video. Alas, our ancient DVD player in the living room doesn't have component video out.

Walked down to the Castro this morning for exercise and, well, to get there. Ran into heypyro on the way, who was rushing off to meet poohbearjim to go driving down to Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Last year animbear drove me, rootbeer1 and redbeardedblond down the same highway in his Mini. It's really a knuckle-whitener.

Chatted briefly with markosf and glovercom, then sftekbear for a longer visit, at Starbears. Steve had an iced tea. I had a nonfat latte.

Took Muni to Powell St. station. Went to Crate & Barrel, said hi to rampagebear, who is not a lush. Looked at all the pretty colored items and didn't buy anything.

Stopped in Macy's briefly looking for some online friend of Steve's--didn't see him.

Went to the Lush store. On our trip to Palm Springs last month, when we first met joebehrsandiego in person, I was struck by how good he smelled. When I finally confessed my olfactory fascination, he told me it was Slammer shower gel, by Lush. So we bought a few bottles of the gels that are going to be discontinued. We just took showers--I smell like Slammer, and Steve smells like Tramp.

Got home, went to an open house down the street for an Eichler very much like ours--slightly different floor plan, but 2 stories, 4 bedrooms, 2½ baths, nice marble-surrounded hot tub in the yard, japanese garden, plasma TV in the den. All for only $995,000. Won't you be our neighbor?

Went to Safeway, picked up Mr. Clean Magic Erasers thanks to the tip from beg1n. Also a rotisserie chicken and turkey breast. We're each down about 10 pounds on South Beach induction. Came home, and Steve scrubbed the sinks, bathtub and shower stall while I made a salad. Ate dinner.

Tomorrow, who knows? Maybe Costco...

That is all.

Re: what a deal!
They're like magic--Steve is just enthralled with them. And they were 2 for 1 at Safeway!

"...And now, lets give a great welcome applause to Tramp-Slammer!"

Well, that worked better in my head.

Wait...they're discontinuing Slammer and Tramp??? I just got a bottle of the former in the huge order I placed and received recently. I love the stuff. I thought I'd like Tramp more than I did, though...

Yeah, they're making way for new flavors, according to the salespeople. We may stock up on Tramp--I like the pachouli/sandalwood combo.

It is kind of like a cult, though, isn't it?

Heh...what I find really amusing is how anti-scent the bear crowd is/was, and virtually everyone I know who goes to Lush identifies as a bear.

One of the things I wanted to do but didn't before I left SF was have a few people over for movies and Lush facials. ;-)

I have a TON of ballistics and bubble bars to last me a while, but I am hoping they open a store here. We have a bad knockoff called Basin at the Monstrosity of America.

Good to hear you found the shower gels ... and thanks for the heads-up re their discontinuance. I need to go get some - quick! :)

Yeah, stock up--the web site show Slammer and Tramp as both being out of stock. The girl in the shop told us they only had what was left in their store stock to sell.

I think Slammer smelled better on you than me, but it's hard to smell it on onesself. Tramp suits Steve nicely. :o)

We're going to do the same thing =) Larry doesn't remember anything about EP4-6 and he's never seen 1-2 so he's completely lost! Were going to have a StarWars marathon this week to get him caught up before we go see EP3.

I really honestly truly feel this one is going to be fantastic! I can't Wait =)

Yeah, I'm excited about it. Of course, I downloaded the script a few weeks ago, so I know what's going to happen. But I can't wait to see it anyway. We have tickets for opening night, in the digital theater. The digital version supposedly has a few more scenes than the film version. Woohoo!

Ah, I'm so a fan of Lush stuff. When I was up in Portland I picked up Slammer. Have since gotten Happy for Sad and Narcotic gells as well. Good stuff! (now my balls smell like rosemary and balls--yaay!)
