Sailor Moon, Starbucks, and stuff....

So, I rode with a friend of mine to Greensboro today for her doctor's appointment.  Her son went too.  He has been watching Sailor Moon and it made me want to re-watch it.  I saw that it was on Hulu, so I have started over from the beginning.  The quality is so good.  I'm an old time fan from the fan sub days.  The quality of some of those tapes was SO BAD.  This is such a treat being able to watch it like this!  I am up to the episode before Ami-chan shows up.  I'm waiting on Rei because she is and always has been my favorite.  I'm enjoying watching it.  I had to figure out how to make the subtitles show on Hulu, but I did and now I'm good!

As for Starbucks, my friend who had to go to Greensboro asked me yesterday if I'd go.  I said yes, if I got to go to a Starbucks. LOL  I went to one I've been to before but it's been a long time.  I will be able to add it to my tracker.  They also had stickers!  The barista give me eight of them. :D  These are a lot smaller than the one I got at the beach and they are clear around the Siren.  I put four on my Macbook. :P  I'll use the others for bullet journalling.  Speaking of my bujo, I didn't get around to making my beach trip page last night.  I think I'm going to wait until I get some ink for my printer so I can put some of the pictures I took on my trip in there.  I think that would be cool.

While in Greensboro, we went to P.F. Chang's for lunch.  I had an email that had, 'buy one entree, get one free' so we did that.  I was broke, so that was the only way I could have eaten.  Well, she was going to get my lunch for going with her, but I told her about the deal I had to save her some money. ^_^ I told her since I saved her money on lunch she should have bought my Starbucks! LOL!

It was a full day.  I came home and watched some Night Court and then I looked for Sailor Moon and found it on Hulu.  They have all 200 episodes. I just hope they don't take them off before I can re-watch the entire show.  It's been a lot of years since I've seen it all.  It's still good, but there are some things that annoy me.  They translate Mamo saying "bun head" instead of "dumpling head".  Dumpling head just sounds better! LOL  Other than that, it's been great.  I know the translations are going to be different as the ones I watched were all fan done.  The quality of the episodes makes up for it.  After I finish the original Sailor Moon, I'll watch Crystal!

BTW, here is a picture of my Macbook with all it's goodies!

Friday fun!

Yeah, I actually had a pretty decent day today!  My friend that bailed on my birthday, made up for it today!  She, her hubby, and myself went to Greensboro, North Carolina.  I had a free meal at P.F. Chang's.  It was buy an entree, and get one free.  I asked my friend and her husband if they wanted to go, and they did!  I got a delicious meal of chicken lo mein. It's my favorite thing to order there.  

My friend and I went to Ulta so I could get my free birthday gift.  It was a eye shadow palette valued at $18!  I don't really wear makeup, but if I do, these are my colors, so that is good.  Hubby went to Sur la Table.  We all met back up and went to Battleground avenue.  We went to a Starbucks there.  I'd never been to this particular Starbucks, so that was pretty cool!  The baristas were really nice and friendly, I got a cascara latte, of course!  I was in a star dash, I needed to buy a latte, a frappuccino, and a tea to get 150 stars.  I don't drink tea at all, so that was going to be a problem.  I asked my friends if they would like one or the other.  My friend wanted a frappuccino and her husband wanted tea. I got them to put the money on my card and buy them with that.  I was able to complete the star dash. YAY!  I was happy.  I got a delicious drink, extra stars, and I got to put a new Starbucks location in my tracker. ^_^

We left Greensboro and then came back to town.  Her son wanted to go get something to eat and wash his car, so she and I rode with him to do that. I visited for a while when we got back and then I came home. I did my stretches and now I'm just catching up on my blog and relaxing.  I'm going to crash before too much longer.  It was a good day, but it was also a long one and I'm tired.  Oh! I got to try cotton candy grapes today.  They are AMAZING. Sooooooooooooo good!


What a day!

So, I was just lounging around the house today.  I was just relaxing before my workouts.  My friend called and wanted to go to Greensboro.  She didn't want to go by herself, so she asked me if I wanted to go. I did, but I'm broke. Lol  She said she'd get my lunch, and get me something I needed at Whole Foods and I could just pay her back. I agreed and we headed out. 

We ate at this Asian fresh noodle place.  It was pretty good!  It was rice noodles with chicken, cucumbers, onions, carrots, etc.  Very tasty!  We ate and then we went to the first place she needed to go.  We then went to Starbucks and they had my beloved Cascara latte!!!!!!!!!!!!!  They also had some Michigan Cherry oat bars.  I was a happy camper. LOL  They also had some drinkware on sale. I got a nice tumbler.  It's a grande like my other one but I like the lid on this one much better.  Here is a picture....

I love it!  After that, we went to the other store she needed to go to and then she wanted to go to this place that has cake.  there was a line out the door!  She stood in line for a loooooong time.  I noticed a hair place nearby having a sale. $6.99 haircuts!  I desperately needed a cut, so I went ahead and got one.  I really shouldn't have spent the money, but that was a great deal and I knew she would be in line a long time.  I was right! :P

We headed back towards home and drove through a storm.  It was insane there for a bit, but we made it home safely.  I just finished doing my workouts.  Now I'm going to relax a bit, watch an episode of The New Detectives, and then crash! :)
