I capped off a few low-key days in San Francisco today with lunch with Russ and his friend Brett. Then it was back to LA. I was lucky to catch my friend George who had gotten off of work early. George picked me up from LAX and - oh look at that - just in time for Taco Tuesday! A few text messages later and my friends Heith and Pat were able to join as well. After being away so much lately, it was an especially nice way to come back. Even though its dark, I can tell just from the sound from my living room that the waves are high. I missed that noise, but its also a sign that the holidays are on their way. I think I'll be staying put til then.
