12:30 - Picking up lunch at kitchenette. Yup...that's a garage. Where I got my lunch.
12:34 - That's "no relish," as in green olives, because they are the fru-its of the de-vil, as are all brined vegetables.
12:42 - Grilled eggplant and heirloom tomato sandwich with feta on green-onion slab bread, with a side of Vietnamese-style caramel corn (caramel, peanuts, fish sauce, chiles, lime). Not cheap, but not bad.
6:23 - Traffic meltdown in the East Bay. Quick! Shorter and red, or longer and yellowish?
6:37 - Aaaand longer and yellowish wins it.
7:30 - At least dinner's waiting for me when I get home. ...I am Don Draper.
8:40 - A walk in the wind, minus headphones, because one can really only listen to so much NPR before things get a little crazy. Obviously.
