Magical Moments

Am in deep VC packet-grading mode; one to go. Took breaks today only to walk on the treadmill for 45 minutes to the soundtrack from "Rocky II" (go ahead, mock me) and have sake sashimi, an avocado bomb, and edamame at Suzi's North.

Cheers to the curvy lady with the long blond hair and low-cut, bright red red dress, smoking a cigarette and sitting at the cocktail table outside Cippolina on West Lynn yesterday evening. The effect was magnificiently Marilyn.

While I'm talking West Lynn, cheers, too, to the owner of the pink sedan with various pigs glued to the exterior, parked outside Anthony's Laundry & Dry Cleaners at the same time. Thanks for keeping Austin weird!

I also was charmed by the four-or-five-year-old fairy princess in the crown, glitter wings, and long gown on Duval late this afternoon.

And more personally, thanks to GLS for fixing the faucets in both upstairs bathrooms as well as the baseboard of the kitchen cabinets. Ah, the finer things in life!
