I need the rest.
It was nice taking time off work, up until the point where I walked into work and found a mound of troubles waiting for me. It's good to be missed, but come on people. Solve a few things yourselves.
I spent last weekend in San Francisco with friends. I got a good chuckle out of the tourists waiting in line at Powell for the cable cars who were wearing shorts and short sleeves. I had on a scarf, a jacket, leggings, and a hoodie, and even though we hiked all over Haight-Ashbury (sad to see how many teens still feel compelled to run away from home) and Golden Gate Park, there were times when I was cold. Thank goodness for the warming properties of a martini.
I also got to read a lot. Finished the first of the Dresden Files series, will read the next one, told the SO it was his kind of book. Read Ginn Hale's Wicked Gentlemen. Thank you for the recommendation, Syd. It was great. Also read Madder Love from Rebel Satori Press, finished J.D. Salinger's short stories, The End of the Affair by Graham Greene, and The Good Thief by James Buchanan (recommended). I haven't done this much pleasure reading in a long time.
