brunch and meeting new people

Brunch today was at The Starving Artist at Days, Davenjbigbear & Igeekbearjeff, Jasonmrwhistlebear, Jayindiebehr & Anthony and Ednjbearcub were there.

After brunch, Jay and Anthony split and Ed & Dave and Jason & I made our way over to evilcreamsicle-Tom's place.

Tom is a really nice, attractive guy and has a nice house [grin]. We got the nickle tour, chatted and hung out there for a little while, then headed out to Ed and Jeff's music store.

At the music store, I bought a few items, Dave bought a few items and we chatted with Ed and Jeff.

Then headed back to the apartment with a stop for ice cream at Ryan's Homemade Ice Cream Shop in Shrewsbury (I think). I had a sundae of mint chocolate chip ice cream with hot fudge, peanuts, whipped cream and a cherry. On our way into the shop we noticed a black and white cat sitting atop a garbage can looking into the front window of the shop. He seemed to be eyeing the family sitting at the window counter eating their sundaes.

We ordered and were served, the other family finished and got up to leave and we took their places as entertainment for the cat. He(it) seemed old and content to just sit on his perch atop the garbage can and watch the patrons. He had a collar with a bright red heart tag giving his name, a phone number and the fact that he lived at the ice cream shop. We noticed that he had deformed ears, which we thought could have been a result of a birth defect or fights with other cats. He sat there peering at us through half closed eyes, mouthing meow from time to time.

Jason, Dave & I finished our ice cream and continued back to the apartment to watch the movie, Donnie Darko, which I'll probably have to see again to figure out.

That's all for now.
I'm off to the bedroom to find the bear earring that I lost this morning.
