rue-madame's Diaryland Diary

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Back in black, deux

I got presents this weekend.

From the yogi: a coral-colored cashmere short-sleeved henley with a white cotton collar, and this cd to help me be more disciplined

From Harriet: a beefcake shot of Adam Brody ripped from a magazine, and this first edition comic book

Now I have something cute to wear and something good to read. On the plane. The plane Iím taking to Oakland, California. This Thursday at 6am. To attend Terenceís great uncleís funeral. Which actually takes place in Chico, California, five hours from Oakland by car.

I am trying not to dwell on the negative. I am attempting the role of the supportive girlfriend--the girl who keeps her trap shut and doesnít criticize (the role of my career! Take that, Charlize!)--so I am accentuating the positive, and here are some of the East Bay options Iíve come up with:

- Peetís coffee

- dinner somewhere in Rockridge or if I can browbeat someone, the cafť at Chez Panisse or someplace else in the gourmet ghetto

- Amoeba

In another month, we fly out again, this time for a friendís wedding.

At this rate, we will never acclimate to the East Coast.

Speaking of, Spring has officially Sprung. I have been seeing insects, there are more dead animals on the road, and birds are singing. Believe it or not, there was an actual woodpecker outside my window, hammering metronomically away at a tree trunk. I donít think Iíve ever seen one of those outside of a cartoon before.
