here are some things.
coworkers rolling out tart dough:
a really cool thing just happened to me. i got the opportunity to guest-barista for the stumptown cart, backstage at the sasquatch festival! my mind is thoroughly blown. i can barely even talk about it because i try to play it cool and then all the sudden i'm just like GUSHING. i think it is safe to say that it is one of the COOLEST, FUNNEST THINGS I HAVE EVER GOTTEN TO DO:
the craziest part was that the rock stars were so stoked to see US! they were like OH MY GOD, STUMPTOWN IS HERE. YES. I AM GOING TO DRINK LIKE 300 LATTES. i made espresso for the dap kings right before they played! it was awesome!
apparently it was the 10-year anniversary of the festival, so the organizers hired the ace of cakes people to make a sasquatch cake!
the only part of it that's actually cake is the little lumberjack guy- the rest is wood or cardboard or something. it sat around, pristine, for like 2 days, and then the singer for the flaming lips smashed it on stage and threw chunks of cake into the crowd. my son was so bummed, he REALLY wanted to eat it. i didn't have the heart to tell him how gross fondant really tastes.
the only reason i got to to go the festival is that my husband drove up the coffee cart and installed it. he tricked out the la marzocco linea that we were working on with LED spotlights in between the group heads and it was really cool!!!
in other news i drink a lot of espresso nowadays.
and finally, i am very slowly learning to tattoo and it's really cool. here is the second tattoo i've ever done on another person:
i think it came out pretty good! #3 is coming up soon. i don't have a lot of time to make appointments with people so i haven't gotten to practice much. but it's cool, it is really fun.
anyway today was the first 80 degree + day we've had all year and i don't know wtf i am doing in the basement. i bought a BIKE yesterday and i rode it to work this morning! and now i'm going to go into my backyard and pick a bunch of mint for the mint-cucumber-yogurt-avocado salad i'm about to make to go with the lamb we're about to grill.
