Birthday Adventures in Akron

Saturday was my birthday, so the otter and I made one of our trips to the rubber city to celebrate.

Our first stop was VegiTerranean, the vegan restaurant owned by Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders. I had the Warm Arugula Salad with Oven Roasted Butternut Squash, Red Onion, Sun-dried Cherries and
Toasted Pecans, tossed in a warm Maple Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette; the Italian Fritto Gardein Scallopini, and a glass of red wine. It was one of the best but most expensive meals I ever had! I’ll probably go back sometime, though I will probably have to go during lunch.

Next, we headed over to Square Records, which is pretty much the most awesome store ever. I picked up Nick Drake’s Bryter Layter, Belle and Sebastian’s Storytelling, and Dethklok’s Deathalbum, all on CD, as well as Thriller by Michael Jackson on Vinyl. I also grabbed the Trouble Books Tablature Book, which is awesome.

Next door, we went to Revival. Usually, the otter gets stuff while I stand around bored (I’m not excited about clothes shopping!), but I did find a nice cardigan. The otter bought it for me.

After Revival, we had a cup of coffee at Angel Falls Coffee, we decided that we should see the 9:30 showing of Wolverine at the Highland Theater. We got our tickets, then headed over to The Matinee for a beer before seeing the movie.

The Highland Theater was amazing. There’s actually a bar where you can sit and watch the movie, or you can go into the theater proper. I watched Wolverine: Origins while drinking Rum and Coke! Sweet.

And that wraps up another installment of jaynova’s adventures in Akron!

Well, its a new week, so I thought I would utilize this fresh start…to further dwell on my weekend.

To maintain the scales of karma, decency, and anything else I may have tipped this weekend, I thought I would mention the good things that happend on friday-sunday.

1) I got that letter published in the newspaper.
2)I weighed myself when I worked out…I’m down to 149 lbs. 145 is my goal, but I had trouble breaking 150, and I hovered around 155 for the longest time.
3) I had a romantic evening with the otter on my balcony. We read, listened to music, and drank wine until 2 AM.

Also, I should point out that I don’t actually know what the letter from the court is…I am assuming that it is some kind of litigation. I dunno. Maybe somebody died and left me a lot of money. It could happen!
