Blogging Tunes: somafm - Groove Salad
I thought I was going to make it into the office today, but after a long day at UCSF yesterday (and a sore lower-back), I think a home day makes more sense. I have a ton of work catch up to do (email, chatter, etc.) as well as some home things that have been piling up. A nap is probably in the cards too. My energy is returning from last week's chemo, but I'm still not 100%. What is 100%, anyway? The time I'll save from not having to commute will, of course, help with all this.
The BMT date is fast approaching and the "list of things to get done" isn't getting much shorter. Hopefully we can nail a bunch of stuff today and tomorrow. Thursday is definitely an "in the office" day, as I have a dentist appointment downtown and Benji has organized a "happy hour with jg" thing. Amazing how a simple thing like a dental cleaning can get put off for months and months when you're dealing with blood cancer.
Friday is another pretty full day at UCSF followed by a memorial for Bridget from the Kezar Pub (email me for info) and a sushi dinner with my good pal Rob M. Would you believe I haven't eaten sushi since I was diagnosed back in November? Definitely gotta hit Grandeho's once before the BMT.
On a fun note: Sunday, Floyd and I made our (seemingly weekly) morning trip to House of Bagels in San Rafael to get some bagels, lox, and whitefish salad. So nice having a real bagel place half a mile from our place. When it's not raining, I can see us biking over there instead of driving. The bagels are great, the whitefish salad is the real deal, and the lox is fantastic. However, whoever made this sign clearly went to the Dan Quayle school of spelling:
We also took advantage of the rain and went to the BADM where Floyd had a blast playing at the sand table and listening to the Dead tunes that the hippie-worker-dude played over the stereo:
Lastly, I had a great conversation with "Dan," a guy who called me though the lls First Connection program. I think he's the 4th or 5th person I've spoken with through this service -- it's really helpful to talk to people who have been through similar treatments so I can get a better idea of what's in store the next few months. Thanks a bunch, Dan!
OK, that's the quick morning update. Time to crank on some work.
I will kick its ass,
