That thing I do to pay the bills has been hectic. Sure, I'm sitting here at home in my pajamas, but I assure you that I've been working most of the morning!
In a week, I can post my super secret project - unfortunately, since that is the main thing on my needles, I don't have any pictures to share.
However, for you local yokels, I can recommend a good, upscale Vietnamese restaurant: Bui (1647 Solano Ave, Berkeley). They have a smoked eggplant dish with diced chicken that reminds me of a cross between baingan barta and gai krawpow. (Huh, did I just write that?) Um, it's good. Very good. Eat there.
