I'm about to leave for SFO from my perch here at E's house. Flying to Omaha today. Yesterday was a glorious do-nothing in grand style. I had a terrific Middle Eastern brunch with leela_cat at Old Jerusalem on Mission, then hooked up with frankwu and therinth for a road triplet which included numerous highlights, such as:
  • The abandoned Public Service hospital in the Presidio

  • frankwu lusting after a three-wheeled go cart, and possibly its two attractive female passengers

  • Sausalito, briefly

  • No Muir Woods

  • Crab molestation

  • Lawlessness

  • Car dancing

  • Wildlife misidentification: "Those are wild turkeys. Haven't you ever seen the label on the bottle?"

All of which ended with taking E to a nice Mother's Day dinner at Alice's, a lovely Chinese Restaurant in the Noe Valley neighborhood. Photographic evidence later, now that I finally have a USB card reader again.

Meanwhile, I must fly.

So to speak.

Y'all play nice.

I was exhausted just reading about your adventures "yesterday." I have to presume you implied "write-nothing" rather than just "do-nothing" because that's like saying the Trip To North Dakota (tm) was a "do-nothing," and it took M. and me a week to recover from that one.

Oh, and I forgot to mention -- they're readying the parade and key to the city here.

...crab molestation...

They followed you home again, didn't they? ::sigh:: Really, they're just relentless. And snappish. I'll call the crustacean police.
