Urban Girl Almanac: I Love the Internet

The cold, clear ocean air has fully returned to the city and washed away the last bits of smoke. I was savoring it at lunch. There's nothing like the brisk air in San Francisco. Here's what I learned this week:
  • Another week where I didn't eat at home even once. I'm turning into the cautionary tale about why you shouldn't feed the pigeons: they'll stop being able to feed themselves and develop a taste for "city food." What will I do without a free martini and business dinner to sustain me this weekend?
  • Michel Gondry wants to be my friend.
  • A crisply made bed helps you sleep better.
  • Small Pox...not good.
  • Earaches...also not good. But easily recovered from with a combination of a hot compress, allergy medicine and rest.
  • Mandoline everything.
  • Jessica had to drop out of SYTYCD because of an injury? Kherington was voted off? I miss one week and it all goes to heck?
  • I'll still watch when I can though, largely because Cat Deeley is fun and has a crooked nose like mine.
  • I ♥ the internet. I'm frequently blown away by the kindness of my readers and fellow bloggers.
  • This week's art, a reproduction of the seagull signs that dot the city, is from Wexfordgirl on Etsy.
Rob's off for his bachelor party this weekend. The boys are camping and doing the Downieville Downhill on bikes. Another weekend alone in the city. I have my stacks of wedding invitations to keep me company, thank you cards to write and plans to spend time with some friends.

I was so upset about Kherington, she seemed so sweet, and was good at every dance she tried to do. I can't believe they let Comfort come back, so not fair!!

Oh I can relate - I have a crooked nose too. From one angle I look pretty good and the other so-so. I take solace in that there are others who feel my pain. I may have to start watching this show!
