Breakfast at a place called the Celtic Swell for breakfast - we had been going to go to the Alki cafe, but they were crowded as usual, and this place was new to us. It was pretty good fare all around - my oatmeal was good, and I think everyone else liked what they got. Especially nice were the big wedges of soda bread for toast. I imagine we'll go there again, at least during winter when there is some hope of parking within a mile or so of the restaurant.

Then we went and hung out at Espresso Ulysses for a while prior to going to see The Incredibles at the Cinerama. Really well done film - stuff for the kids, stuff for adults, amazing Pixar animation.

The film let out a touch late, so I missed the first part of the book club meeting, but it was informal enough that wasn't a problem. Now I just have to rustle up a copy of the book.

Xiombarg has come downstairs to visit me! So I'm sitting here while the laundry cycles (yes, finally) contemplating what, if anything, to do with my evening. I wouldn't mind a walk - maybe I'll walk down to the store and back again. It's one of those evenings where none of the ideas I come up with seem worth expending energy on...

How'd the book group thing go? I thought about going, but I'm loath to give up my Saturday afternoons.

(Well, I say "afternoons", but really I mean "mornings".)

A small start - four people so far, one of whom had departed by the time I arrived. Carol, myself, an Art Institute student who lives next door to the coffee shop named Jens (sp?) and the aforementioned rapidly departed individual about whom I can remember nothing (although I think their name was mentioned). The book looks good, if potentially harrowing - Johnny Got His Gun, which I've wanted to read for a while. The plan is to meet weekly, but only choose a book each month, thus giving a chance to discuss the work as we read it, theoretically. On my list for today is to find my own copy, since it's hard to steal Carol's if she's got it with her. :)

One of my favorite things re: The Incredibles was the couturier who designs their super hero suits. Wasn't she just fun?

Oh yes! and I'm sure she is supposed to be modeled on someone famous about whom I know nothing. :) But delightful to watch in any case.
