I am possibly the most miserable human in a three-mile radius. Do not get sick in the boondocks, people. If my doc can't see me tomorrow, I may have to consider instigating some kind of hostage situation.

I was headed into an architecture lecture and saw a guy who looked a lot like Louis Kahn. Thought it was his ghost. Keeping an eye out for Frank Lloyd wright! There ends my knowledge of dead architect visages. I wouldn't know a Saarinen from Casper or Booberry.

I know almost nothing about men's clothing. My husband knows/cares even less.

We have several events upcoming at which he needs to look semi-decent. I am scoping his options because I am tired of him going to events looking like a day laborer on his lunch break.

Hanging in his closet are two things, both of which I would call sportcoats. I don't know where one of them came from, however. It could be the top half of a suit. Is there a difference between a suit jacket and a sport coat? Something about the cut or anything? Or is the only difference the fact that the former has matching pants?

More to the point: If he were to wear the mystery jacket with dress slacks, and it turns out it's a suit jacket, would people be able to tell and snicker, "i can't believe that idiot is wearing his suit jacket as a sportcoat"?

...When the student newspaper prints a kid's review of a restaurant located at Atlantis resort in the Bahamas. Lord.

I didn't think Iowa could win with so many players out. Thanks a lot for crapping up all three of my bowl pools.

Or maybe it's just that we all like to leave.....

In line at the Sacramento airport the woman behind me had a big cargo box labelled with her address, which was an hour from my hometown. After we exchanged the secret cornhusker greeting, the woman two ahead of me turned around and revealed she also grew up in Nebraska.

We are everywhere, people. Or at least, we are all in Sacramento.

Sadly we are also all now experiencing mechanical problems. But that's another story.

You know you're in Berkeley when your meeting organizer indicates which restrooms in the building are most popular the homeless.

Audiobook

I just went to insert disc #3 of my current audiobook. At which point I found disc #2. I apparently went directly from 1 to 3 which helps explain why I couldn't make heads nor tails of the storyline. Lord. I'm relieved that the book isn't that opaque, but am a bit sheepish that I wasn't sharp enough to question the issue.

I swear I just saw one of this town's more acclaimed chefs in Subway.

Kind of a weird time for her to be away from her restaurant, but what do I know?

At times this season, I have been so perplexed by the Project Runway judging that I feel tempted to call for service on my tv. I cannot be seeing the same thing the judges are seeing.

I'm not that into the whole zombie planning thing, but I find myself noticing wherever I see a supply of propane in an unexpected place. I'm thinking, when everyone raids the usual supplies during the zombie apocalypse, I'll remember this stash.

I don't know why there's a rack of propane tanks outside the basketball arena, but it is duly noted.

Every year, the japanese teacher at my son's school auctions off a dinner. Win it, and she'll come to your house and make a japanese dinner for 8. Or, more accurately, for 20. Our pals won the bidding war this year, and invited us to join them last night. We played cards in the kitchen for two hours while she cooked up a storm, telling us about ingredients. Then we all sat down and chowed.

That was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. And she enlisted the boys in making some of the rice dishes, and taught them to roll sushi. She is an excellent cook. I gorged myself. We all did.

Also, do not fall for it when the child of Asian parents tells you they are not a very good musician and are rusty from lack of practice. Sensei sat at the piano (having lowered our expectation with all these excuses) and proceeded to blow us away. I wish i could be that rusty at anything. She also claims to be lousy on her preferred instrument, the saxophone. I'll just bet.

Great night. I have a fridge packed with leftovers to boot.

I just saw two kids in handcuffs sitting on a curb by a u of m police SUV. Young teens, if that. Boy they looked scared. I don't know what the little shits did--all kinds of mischief is possible at Art Fair--but a part of me ached inside. It really hit me hard. They were only a few years older than Kidlet. Or not even that much.

HANDCUFFS.

I am headed home right now to hug my boy. And maybe pre-emptively ground him for ten years.
