I got an A on the first mid-term. Yay! We have a second mid-term next week.

I have had a porcelain sliver in my right index finger for months and it's so annoying, I want it out!  In the last two weeks, I've seen two hand surgeons; been scheduled for hand surgery, which surgeon #2 canceled without anyone calling my home phone to tell me or leave a message (there was a message on my cell, which was hinky for days -- I got the message 4 hours *after* going to two surgery centers and the hospital looking for the dang hand surgeon!); been back to see hand surgeon #1 after canceling-surgeon-#2 didn't return my phone call. Latest advice: don't do anything. It will eventually work its way out. The universe seems against surgery on this finger. I hope surgeon #1 is right.

Oh the drama over whether or not my brother is coming to the Bay Area from Penna. for his 62nd birthday and our mother's 95th birthday. Skipping a six para analysis of his comm. style here, I think his deep involvement with AA and its offshoots plays a large role in how poorly he listens, and why he tends to take any subject and shortly make it about him. AA culture is about listening and supporting, but what he could use IMHO is being challenged on falsehoods, assumptions, and non-sequitors.

I've discovered that an East Bay and SF bakery, Arizmendi, has opened a storefront downtown San Rafael. I almost wish I hadn't. The bread is soooooo gooood. Their sourdough starter, I have heard, originally came from their sister coop, the Cheese Board Collective in North Berkeley, which is one of the progenitors of the original Gourmet Ghetto, the other two being Chez Panisse and Pig By Tail.  That's my original Bay Area neighborhood, and wow did I miss the Cheese Board (and Berkeley Bowl) when I moved to Marin.
