what the ZUT?


Joe, Pamela and I celebrated her belated birthday yesterday at ZUT on
that bustling 4th Avenue in Berkeley. We talked and laughed and cried
just a bit. All quite wonderful, as you can see.

wedding bells again




Daniel J. and Kati were married yesterday at the Depot Hotel Restaurant
in Sonoma. Some of you will remember that Dr. J and I worked together
at the Borders store. It was a beautiful wedding, perfect in every way.
My ex-boss John and co-worker Lev were my dates and we sat at the
Doctor Who table which warmed my heart. (The Blogmaid and family
are Doctor Who fans.) I felt honored to be invited to this event and
I know that Dr. and Mrs. J will be VERY happy together. Very.

how can they possibly?



This is the true story of a trial in London. There really are people who
say that the Holocaust never happened. Denial (a DVD from the Flix®)
features Timothy Spall as the villain with Tom Wilkinson as the lawyer
out to prove him wrong. Rachael Weisz is a professor ~ enthralling.

We are celebrating Linda's b.day at the Beachside Cafe on Judah.
I love that place, the beach and Linda.

the Ritz Carlini



This is the one and only time that Ms. Puma has been on or in her
extravagant new condo. Carlini will just give her time because he
knows cats and their strange behavior. Ingrate.

escape to China


I'm guessing that Lisa See did a LOT of research on the mountain
people in China before writing this book. I am about half way
through, getting to know the little girl who was adopted by
American parents who live on Hummingbird Lane in Pasadena,
California, of all strange places.

on and off stage



The San Francisco Playhouse has a program they call Rising Stars ~ donors
pay for seats for high school kids to come to the theater. It benefits everyone
and yesterday Carlini and I (both donors) attended the Ice Cream Social,
but didn't stay for dessert. Carlini is an usher there as well, so he knows
quite a few of the people involved at SF Playhouse. Then we escaped for
coffee, but you probably already guessed that.
