Dry cleaners, Dark Knights, and dogs—no big whoop

Picked up dry cleaning/alterations yesterday evening. Wow, that's expensive. No wonder I rarely do it.

Saw Batman Begins again last night with Pete (again), this time at the IMAX. We nearly didn't make the sold-out show but for the quick use of a Jedi mind trick and a $20 bill on the people ahead of us in line, who received the last two tickets but had six people in their group (OK, it was likely just the twenty). This resulted in second row right aisle seating, and my neck will probably be paying for that today. The last remnants of the sunset were still visible over the bay as we left, and the Space Needle looked incredibly cool up close at night.

Sitting at my desk after coming home from the movie last night, I was almost startled to see the flat, white face of a curious bulldog looking in the window at me. Apparently the dog of guests of my upstairs neighbors, he must be a little sharper than their own (one never seems to see me in here, the other—a testy pit bull—rarely does, at which point she freaks out and runs nosefirst into the window).

The weather was gorgeous yesterday, and today promises even more of the same. Plenty to do at the office to finish out the week today, yet not so much to be stressed. It'll be good to start the long weekend tomorrow.
