in other news: I went tothe office late yesterday and then took a long lunch at the Pink Door with Ellen. It was incredibly sunny and they had outdoor seating with a view of the sound, some little kid doing kung fu moves on the neighboring rooftop, and was within earshot of some people who spent more than a half hour rhythmically clapping (we suspected that it was a clapping machine, but alas it was human-powered).
Later, we watched the University of Washington lose horribly to Louisville. Have I mentioned that I only like the "tournament phase" of most sports? Yet, after Ellen left for dinner, March Madness failed to keep me from my weekly appointment with the o.c.
Today, more work, swimming, and watching a very intense basketball game. So good.
