Well, the folks are on their way back home. Took them off to the airport a few hours ago, and got to straightening up the place. Plus, lunch.
My sister came back over to hang out yesterday. Bernie had to work, so the rest of us went over to the park to bum around the botanical gardens and the japanese tea garden. Grabbed lunch at Einstein's Sandwiches on 9th Ave, which was super good, came back home for a bit, went out and had a few beers at O'Rourke's, came back home for a bit. Bernie came home from work, and we walked down to Gaspare's for dinner. We had to wait for a while for a table, so Gaspare himself came out and brought us a bottle of wine to drink outside while we were waiting. Nice. Plus, really good food.
We were going to go down to the Drift for some drinks with the guys, but wound up lolling around the apartment and going to bed early. Which worked out just fine, since we were late, and people went to hang out on the patio at Zeitgeist instead. Then, this morning, wake up, get coffee, get them packed, and get them off to SFO. All in all, a pretty fun visit. Good to see the folks again. Got to get together with my sister some more before we go to Austin.
Now is the time for checking a week's worth of work email, catch up on my webernet reading, and start figuring out what needs to get done next week. I can't wait to slack off and rest this weekend. Starting.... now.(August 09, 2002 05:47 PM)
