I've been in one of those "I'd lose my brain if it weren't firmly attached to my body" phases. I was remarkably missing social cues late last week, misplaced my keys in a five minute stop at home on Sunday (stretching it out to fifteen as I looked!) and put my glasses someplace weird on Monday morning, necessitating going to work in my spares.

Plans for making cherry-berry pie and catching up blogging on Monday night (including peeectures) were dashed by not feeling very well. I went off to Borders (getting very woozy in the line) and got a couple of paperbacks, one of which I started during my bath and stayed up to midnight to read.

Yesterday was an improvement in both the physical and mental recovery departments. I went over to ayse's to deliver the cherries and we went to Angel Fish, aka "The fabulous sushi place in Alameda that is so hard to find". It was exquisite. I have eaten many California Rolls in my time and it is amazing the difference the freshest Real Crab makes. The toro was like buttah. I also think I can find it again :D.

We saw one of the neighborhood cats who A. thinks is Maggie's sister, but kitty didn't come to us and, while she (calico) was sitting across the street at "her" house, the humans were out too and I didn't want to explain that I think I have this cat's sib, as I might start getting annoyed at The Cat Dumper again, even though I have a fabulous cat out of it.

Every time we walk by the CD's house, which is twice when we go for walkies with the dog, we give her a big ol' Brooklyn Wave. I'm sure somebody must have seen us by now and wonders what we are on.

I started pie last night but decided to refrigerate the crust overnight, so I will finish it tonight. There's nothing quite like squeezing ripe cherries with your bare hands. I might try another variation on the recipe where I puree 1/4 c of them for the setting juice. Slightly more civilized, significantly less emotionally satisfying.
