Catching up
Well, Labor Day Weekend has come (yay!) and gone (boo!) and I didn't do much of anything. I'm having a hard time recovering my strength after my last bout of the Creeping Zarfs ... mostly because I just don't eat enough. But I really don't have much energy these days. Luckily Husband the Wonderful took great care of me. We did get out into the sunshine yesterday with a short walk by the bay. It was glorious and SO nice to get out of the house.

It looks like tonight is the return of At the Cafe Bohemian. I asked for someone to sub for me, but nobody's stepped up so I guess I'm on the air. To be perfectly honest, I'm worried that I won't have enough energy to do the full show. If you listen, be prepared for lots of 10 minute songs in the last hour.

Today is also Cipher's (The World's Most Amazing Cat, Screw You if You Don't Agree tm) birthday. Two years ago today we brought her home from the Peninsula Humane Society. And yeah, it was love at first sight. Thanks for all the love, play, and sleepless nights, cat. We love you.

In other news, Husband and I watched Zodiac this weekend. The 2006 version with Robert Downey, Jr. It was....um....long. It would have been quite good had it been about 45 minutes shorter. But interesting. As someone who lived in the Bay Area during the Zodiac murders (even if I was only a kid) it was interesting to revisit the sort of the hysteria it caused. I remember the SF Chronicle carrying the front page story. The curfews. I remember the adults discussing it and warning my older siblings to be careful. Fascinating how one lunatic with a gun and a secret code can terrorize an entire region.
