Thursday in California

I should mention that we're not going to Bodeguita del Medio for dinner tonight. We're going to the Gordon Biersch in Palo Alto, 640 Emerson, so if you've changed your mind and are intending to drop in, that's where you should drop. Somewhat less interesting, but infinitely more willing to seat us: Bodeguita flatly refused on a party of that size. So okay then; they can be lunch, probably. That seems like a thing.

It's snowing without me again at home. My folks are making eyebrows at me for asking for all this snow and then leaving. I know there'll be some left when we get back, but it's just not the same as being there when it's falling. Sigh. Well, the basketball tournaments aren't over yet. I will comfort myself with that thought: until the high school boys have played their basketball tournament, snow is not over in Minnesota, and may not be afterwards. There's a happy thought for my rainy Palo Alto morning.
