last night, i had dinner at my folks' house, in SF, with Larry and Peggy, Tom and Jeannine, Steve and Penny. 7 Tesharas. I took BART, hung out at the Glen Park library, bought a taco at La Corneta, beforehand. It was carne asada, and my mom made bbq pork... at least i'm eating less meat. On the brighter side, I discovered the TJ's vegan chicken-less salad-yum.
I've got 4 library books out:
-The Year's Best Science Fiction (30th collection)(short stories)
3 language books:
-What in the Word? by Charles Harrington Elster (really good!)
-Word Catcher, by Phil Cousineau
-Making Whoopee, by Evan Morris (Words of love for lovers of words)
the first Game of Thrones book, by George RR Martin (Pierre's)
I just won tickets to Yoshi's (jack london square/oakland), for this Thusday at 8p, me and a guest. The website says the tix are $22. Like a free 44 bucks!
this morning I'm going to the Intimate Impressionism exhibit, at the legion of honor, in SF, with SaraPierre&Augustus
I'm walking dogs, and having lunch with my friend Julie on Tuesday
After Kaiser, Thurs. morning, I'm having lunch on Piedmont with Brooks, maybe Walter too.
a week from today, 8/10th is my mom's birthday ('45)
8/13-19, i'm house/dog-sitting, in Oakland
at last, i beat my cold, so I'll return to my daily exercise routine at the Ymca. I gained weight again, like 10 lbs; am trying to get back down to 200.
basically, I read, listen to music, exercise, dogwalk, and write.
-and buy stuff, mostly food: maybe i should join eharmony or match.com, because okcupid doesn't cut it, although it does say i've got 44 people who like my profile. Me and my 44 lady coven, lol.
