Sooper-speshul Saturday 12 of 12! Very exciting in theory; not really all that exciting in practice. But:
8: 15 - The obligatory waking-up picture. We've moved on to cotton sheets and tank tops this month, which is a step up, I'd say.
9:30 - My new, semi-bad weekend habit: lazing around in bed with my computer. Wireless and a functioning laptop battery have ruined me for anything productive before 11 a.m.
12: 15 - Post-haircut. The temptation to somehow Photoshop in some lipstick here was absolutely absurd. Note to self: in future, do not look like well-styled zombie in photos.
12: 27 - Wandering the streets of Alameda after the haircut. Alameda's like Stars Hollow--every time I get my hair cut there, they always seem to be having a festival of some kind. It's kind of bizarre.
12:34 - Thrift-shopping for a bit.
12:42 - Nanette Lepore? In Alameda?
1:12 - Testing out a new taqueria with a vegetarian burrito. All taquerias must win me over with an acceptable veggie burrito--only after they've shown their trustworthiness with beans and rice can we move on to meat (chicken, then carnitas if they're really good). My burrito was huge, but not super-authentic. Real burritos shouldn't have cheddar cheese in them.
3:32 - A trip to the Target in San Leandro. I like it better than the fancy two-story one in Albany (though Albany's escalator for carts makes it a close contest). This one has a more diverse clientele, and has yet to fail me in the area of DVDs under $10. Thumbs up, San Leandro!
4: 25 - On the way home from Target. A sunny day in the Bay Area.
7:40 - Lasagna for dinner with my friends Helen and Bill, and then...
10:23 - ....off to the Starry Plough for some music! This is the Shelley Doty X-tet. They were good.
11:47 - Plum Crazy, who were talented, funk-wise, but also a little jam-bandish for my taste.
Good weekend, all!
