Quails, Men and the Land of Oz

I can safely say that I had a very fun and relaxing weekend, though not the most eventful. Sleep is always welcome and I got plenty of it, awesome. I was a little beat down at school this past week with several patient cancellations and just overall bad luck with scheduling, etc. The Sunday Depression has definitely hit hard today. Perhaps being woken up by movers who sound like a herd of elephants stampeding through the apartment complex each time they bring up a new piece of furniture doesn't help the situation. Regardless, I'm hoping that a nice run, a lovely trip to Central Market (Central Market > Whole Foods...if you ask me) and some home cookin' will fix me right up. Here's a list of things I learned this weekend:
  • THE QUAIL AT LIBERTY BAR LOOKS LIKE A PERSON. Greg and I decided we needed to unwind with some good grub after clinic on Friday and Liberty Bar did not disappoint. The atmosphere was relaxing but not boring, the service was really friendly and the food fresh, unique and very satisfying. All that aside, you can not look at the photo below and tell me that those two "quails"...butterflied, seasoned and grilled to not look like two miniature humans. With giant tomato heads.
You just can't deny it.
  • COLIN FIRTH IS A GOD AMONGST MEN. Ok perhaps that is a bit of an exaggeration but seriously, I can't get enough of this man. He had previously stolen my heart in films such as the A&E Pride and Prejudice (Mr. Darcy makes me feverish), Love Actually and even Bridget Jones's Diary. Well, he's gone and done it again! Last night, Brigid and I caught the late showing of A Single Man, the producing and directing debut of Tom Ford. Yes, the same Tom Ford who re-invented the House of Gucci and now has an incredible line of sunglasses and other accessories. Without spoiling anything about the movie, Colin Firth and Julianne Moore deliver unforgettable performances and the cinematography, early 1960's style and soundtrack are just too good to pass up!
I really wish I had come up with that caption.

  • MY NAME IS YASI, AND I HAVE A TENNIS ADDICTION. Tell you something you don't already know, right? Last night at 2:30 am I curled up on the couch, Hugo by my side, with a steaming cup of hot chocolate and became completely entranced by the Australian Open men's singles final for approximately 3 hours. Who does that, you might ask? Addicts. I've decided to turn my tennis love/obsession into something productive and am planning to sign up for some lessons as soon as the weather warms up! Any one want to join? I will confess much as this tournament was incredible to watch, I'm ready to to get back to a normal sleep schedule (Australia is 17 hours ahead) and also a normal level of human interaction during my free time, Hugo unfortunately does not count.
