Urban Girl Almanac: Spring in San Francisco

It's been a nutty week. Lots of visiting execs in the office, lots of rainstorms, lots of good food, lots of fun and lots of valuable lessons learned:
  • Never, ever, ever talk to bike messengers. It's like they live in an alternate dimension.
  • Orecchiette pasta with mushrooms, cauliflower, garlic and Parmesan makes a hearty winter casserole.
  • "Buy low, sell high" is a good mantra during stock market crashes.
  • Those bamboo sushi rolling mats can double as place mats and bring a nice springy feel to the table.
  • Raw coconut is one of my favorite snacks.
  • A new shower curtain and a bouquet of flowers in the bathroom make for a happy morning routine.
  • Blue cheese can go bad.
  • I found out Wednesday that I have a fused transitional vertebrae in my pelvis that has led to Sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Translation: Butt injury. Next up: steroid injection. Yipee.
  • Two Cornish game hens feed four perfectly.
  • This long sleeved t-shirt from Gap is pretty comfortable and flattering. Who knew.
  • Having people over to the apartment is one of my favorite things in the world!
  • I hate when Blogger comments are broken.
  • Black truffles...white truffles...it's becoming a full blown obsession.
The crazy weather seems to have ended. Sun and warmth are predicted for the weekend! I'm going to try to see the Chinese New Year parade on Saturday. I could also go for a facial and a pedicure sometime this weekend. Maybe I can convince Nicole to take a break from home renovation in Napa for a spa day :)

If there's a dragon, I need to hear about him. :)

Oh.. Suggestion. I saw Amazing Grace, the movie last night. It is just beautiful. I think you might like it.

Forget the sink :) Dave will probably have an easier time working on it without you there. Come to the city for a facial instead!
