Email from Gayle informs me that I now have a bald nephew.

I am trying to figure out which god or goddess I have so pissed off. Shower tonight was, shall we say COOLISH!!!??? It's a bit late to try and figure out if my water heater's pilot light has gone whacked, but that's the obvious conclusion. I HAVE to go to work tomorrow, and the online PG&E "relight gas water heater pilot light" says that the only times I can scheduled a tech to come out is 8am to 8pm tomorrow or some other Thursday. I don't think so. I think if I called in the morning, I could get somebody to come out on Friday. Saw some people working on the street today, not sure if it was PG&E or Bureau of Electricity. Damn.

lilacfairy, trektone and I went to A Cote for dinner tonight to celebrate Lee's new job. We basically noshed our way down the menu - a bit of duck confit, some salad, pommes frites, fried calamari, olives, seared scallops with lentils and turnips, and pear & gorgonzola flatbread with walnuts & thyme.

Desserts soon followed -
  • COUPE BELLE HELENE - A Sundae with Caramel Pear Ice Cream, Chocolate Souffle Cake and Hot Fudge
  • TARTE AU CITRON - Meyer Lemon Tartlet with Chantilly and Candied Lemon Zest
  • PUMPKIN ZUCCOTTO - Pumpkin Cake filled with Pumpkin Mousse served with Chantilly, Butterscotch and Candied Pecans
  • Joey asked for and received a bowl of the caramel balsalmic gelato which was usually served the with the chocolate tart
I tried a bit everything. Kev would have loved the Coupe Belle Helene - the dark chocolate fudge was wonderful. The gelato was good in weird way - it's caramel with a zing at the end. I liked the pumpkin zuccotto the best, could have done without the whipped cream and the sauce - parts which Joey liked the best.

Started off one evil plot - haven't heard anything back yet from victim friend.

Set off another evil plot - did succeed - it must have been the bambi eyes I had to make. It's not 100% confirmed yet.

Nanowrimo words written today? Less than 100.

It was all Awesome! We ordered lots of things and rotated the plates around the table. Fun! And of course the company was delightful. The pumpkin thing was amazing. As was the chocolate thing!

I imagine that's one way to deal with that haircut I saw. Some experiments are hard to recover from....*G*.
