Yesterday was a stormy, rainy day here in Seattle. Not much of a surprise, but for once I wasn't too upset because according to the weatherman, this week is supposed to be gorgeous! Sunny and upper sixties, everything spring should be. This time last year, I was still wearing my winter coat and boots and gloves! It was a good Netflix kind of day, so a friend and I watched Daredevil season 2. I love that show so much, although I miss a lot of it because I am the wimp of all wimps when it comes to violence. The Daredevil did what a lot of shows do in that season one started out with not a ton of graphic violence, then when I was super drawn into the show, it slowly got bloodier and bloodier. There is one episode in particular that starts with gore before the opening credits have even rolled. That episode was tough, and I cried for a lot of it. But it is such a good show, and some of the fight scenes are choreographed so beautifully. I like the Daredevil, and also the Green Arrow, and now I like the Punisher ALOT. I like the vigilante superheros! I like the darkness and the torture in their souls, and I like the conflict they feel inside over who they really are, and what are they doing, where does it end, etc.
I didn't want to interrupt all the binge watching to cook, so we ordered Chinese food to be delivered. It was super tricky finding a place that was open on Sunday, and then some that normally were open were closed for the holiday. We settled on a place that specializes in ahem, lets say a fusion menu. They had burgers and fries, Pad Thai, Fried rice and chow mein along with nachos and quesadillas.
It's called the Rickshaw, and here is there hilarious menu. I used to work at a totally divey bar, and the owner was friends with the owner of the Rickshaw, and I used to go there for drinks and karaoke. The food is what you would think it would be. Edible, but certainly nothing special. They've changed their menu since I moved, they used to offer a lot more tofu/veggie dishes. I tried to get Pad Thai, but it was made with fish sauce, so I settled on Mongolian Tofu, which I've never actually had before.
I was super excited to read this morning that Giorgio Armani has pledged to stop using fur! This going to start a much needed trend. People will stop wanting fur even if they don't care about animals, they care about fashion Dahling! Things are changing, however slow they are changing! Here is the article if you're interested, and have the time!
