“An invisibility cloak that works just like the one Harry Potter inherited from his father.” No joke.
Words fail me. See for yourself:
“The really offensive part of The DaVinci Code is that apparently, Jesus’ kids grew up to be French.”

side note: I’m considering making QOTD a regular feature. What say you, dear readers?
update: The masses (both of you) have spoken. Behold! QOTD has been added to the side bar. I hope you enjoy!
One perfect meal can make up for a month of bad restaurants. For dinner tonight: endive salad with pecans & fuji apples and seared Ahi tuna on basmati-pistachio rice with truffled carrot puree & peppercress. Perfection in every bite.
The spicy peppercress was well-matched with the tender tuna. And it was nice to have a salad served in a vinaigrette that was tangy instead of sweet. The food was unusual and completely satisfying. I cleaned my plate!
I can’t wait to return, and should you find yourself in the Bay Area, you deserve a visit to The Basin in Saratoga.

This weekend, Handsome and I are visiting family in Northern California. On every visit in the past decade, we have brought good weather with us, but today it’s threatening to rain. I am psychically willing it NOT to rain.
be sunny, please be sunny
Anyway, I’m off to enjoy the weekend – and you should, too. Go outside and play!
