Catching up here. Last night’s dinner at Buca di Beppo was a lot of fun. In attendance were yours truly, along with dinogrl, dave-gallaher, swan_tower, kurayami_hime, zellandyne, jorhett, calendula_witch, witch_husband, and zhaneel69. A portion of the party went off to jorhett’s house after for more wine, but I was too pooped and so cadged a ride back to the hotel from zhaneel69. Today calendula_witch was kind enough to toot me around to several Bay Area bookstores in her li’l red convertible, plus a very nice Chinese lunch in Berkeley. I’m at my San Francisco pied a terre now, down in the Balboa Park area, and am scheduled to go out to Writers With Drinks later.
Tomorrow, I fly home and commence the writing of Tourbillon, more or less at the same time.
