Dead Dog Cat

(no subject)

Yesterday was pretty busy, with classes at the Moscone Center, then wandering a couple of blocks to the Chaat Cafe for a lunch of some very tasty and inexpensive Indian/Pakistani food, meeting up with Howard & Gail, helping Gail speed up her computer, then taking them back to Heaven's Dogs because the restaurant was that good, and having them enjoy it. Finally, forestcats arrived from SoCal, driving up to spend a couple of days of the convention; she wants to take in some of the classes, and we'll all go out to dinner tonight.

Nice.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that two nights ago, I tried to watch a Netflix disc called The Replacements, but I couldn't deal with Keanu Reaves in it. I gave it up pretty damn fast, and mailed it back.

I finished a couple of books, today, both Osprey books.

The first one done was Osprey Warrior #124: Teutonic Knight 1190 - 1561, which was fair. It has some good illustrations in it.

Then, next was Osprey Fortress #83: Roman Auxiliary Forts 27 BC - AD 376 which I found to be more interesting, with lots of artwork of active fortifications. Nice.

Now that forestcats is here, we made sure to be there when Gail lectured on non-compliant patients, which actually was pretty interesting. Then, on to other classes. For lunch, we ate at Chef Tom Colicchio's restaurant 'wichcraft, where we split three sandwiches between the two of us. I loved the pastrami; the meatloaf was OK, and the grilled gruyere was good. We wandered, did a bit of shopping, and then rested until dinner, when we met up with Gail and Howard, and were joined by Gail's brother and his husband, and had dinner together at Ana Mandara, a Vietnamese place, where we had the tasting menu. I loved the Dungeoness Crab Soup, liked other items, and didn't like a few. Not a bad time, all-in-all. I haven't seen Gail's brother since I was a senior in college, so it was nice to get reacquainted.
