I've bought my tickets for the Sound of Music Sing-A-Long, which has been going on in London's North End for years but has now has a spot at SF's Castro Theater. Now I must commence making a costume/play clothes out of the drapes, loudly humming "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?"
My mother and sister impetuously stopped by for a visit. Heather was deeply charmed by my enormous old cat Shred and I believe the feeling was mutual, as all animals adore Heather. We ate Zack's amazing deep-dish pizza (10 minutes for a table, 30 minute wait for the pizza itself) and then we four scurried to the Crate & Barrel Outlet where a lovely, scratched and dinged dining table was purchased. (It's gonna be scratched & dinged anyway.)
After they left, Steven and I had the loveliest shared dinner at Pearl: Lovely Tuna Poke, Bruschetta, Peekytoe crab cakes, Black seared cod (big slippery sensual flakes) with tempura portabella slices and a very satisfying gelato sundae. All very good food in a unhurried, lovely atmosphere with a great waitress & creative drinks.
My new favorite word: peekytoe.
Today, after a magnificent corned beef hash breakfast at Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe, a firm single bed was purchased for the spare room. Next: a comforter and then let the guests set in upon us!
Tonight we celebrate my mother's 60-somethingish birthday at my brother Mark's house. I am entirely uncertain if he can cook, but he & The Lovely Jules have just returned from their Italian honeymoon so all the more reason to hang around and hear about it.
