Urban Girl Almanac: Winter, Summer

It's been another very busy week in San Francisco. We went to the movies, hosted a dinner party, played ukulele and got a lot of sleep. Pretty much perfect! Here's what I learned:
  • Everyone should visit San Francisco!
  • Go see Live Free or Die Hard, it's fun.
  • If you love fall, and it feels like fall, why not just pretend it really is fall.
  • Weather is such a unifying topic.
  • Skinning chicken makes me feel sort of tough and French-like.
  • Coq au vin: Easy and delicious. Even better the next day.
  • It's much easier to walk 1.5 miles to work and back in sneakers than low heels.
  • Still enjoying Coupling.
  • Black licorice scotty dogs are a good work snack.
  • I might have found a buyer for the Miata, keep your fingers crossed.
  • I can sort of play Clementine and Amazing Grace on the ukulele with Rob.
  • I kind of like washing dishes (we don't have a dishwasher and Rob usually does them).
  • Any city dweller should appreciate this version of Aesop's fables from the New Yorker.
  • Jean and I also love this column on urban botany clubs from the latest issue. Jean, because of the ferns. Me, because I like anything involving "founded in Victorian times."
  • The New Yorker is so great.
Rob and I are going to the climbing gym and then picking up the apartment tonight. Tomorrow, Nicole is coming into the city early, Rob's friend Seth is coming for a visit and Margaret will be joining us on Sunday. I love a full house!

I washed the dishes from the party last night for an hour. It was fun (but not as fun as watching rob wash dishes ;))
