The weekend - the good

Given the bad, which I think is appropriate in a second post, the good seems pretty petty.

Went to ironkite's Party. Awesome. Good food, good people, great hosts. Nice house. Thumbnails behind cut below. Click for bigger pictures.

Went to The British Pantry, about a 20 minute drive from our house. Food was good, British candies even better. The story was they used to be a British car repair shop, and people kept asking them if they had any British candy. They started to stock British food, and it did better than the repair shop. So they moved and opened a cafe and British food store. If you like British food and candies, you'll likely find them here, although they don't have ALL of them, by any means. But canned treacle? They have that...

Then we went to Tyson's Corner. I hadn't been there in... four years, I guess. They have really expanded; they even had a Lego store there, which sells bulk bricks! Sadly nearly half the bulk items are... a little odd. Like who needs bulk seats? They had SOME bilk 2 x 4 bricks, but only in red, orange, blue, dark gray, and light gray. No black 2 x 4s. Man... Tyson's Corner has SO changed since I was a kid. They added a new wing since I went last, and it rivals Vegas in style and size.

This is the famous dictionary you see scanned all over the Internet. Yes, folks, it's really that bad. Aurienne somehow got a copy.
