Plane flying into SFO late this morning.

My son at Coyote Point, a beach on San Francisco Bay. That's San Francisco, far left way in the distance. Probably, 15 miles as the crow flies.

I'm probably going to take an examination in the fall to get board certified as a specialist in my field. Which means going back to school a little and learning stuff and making outlines and studying them. I'm in day two of that.

And am here posting on BCB. Just like grad school. :x

I had a nurse comee to my apartment this morning to do a physical for a life insurance/long-term care policy. I couldn't understand a single word she said - her accent was some kind of slavic/scandinavian mix. And no, not Finnish.

I had to take a urine test and she just passed me a sheet of instructions, tapped it a couple times, and then gave me a cup and two vials. That was kind of the tenor of the whole 40 minutes - the taking of the blood part made me kind of nervous, because she just kinda grabbed my arm and went to town. Usually, I don't have a problem with people taking my blood, but I had to turn away right before she stabbed me.

Just spent a delightful few hours with Neige on our way back to France from a visit to the Alps. His town is gorgeous.

At the local sorting office this morning picking up a CD parcel, and stood behind chef Michael Bremner. Won't mean a thing to non UKers but Brits may know him from Great British Menu, the one who cooked the main course (Ox tongue) at the Wimbledon banquet.

I just found out that the orthodontist I went to when I was a kid and had braces on my teeth was recently charged with making and possessing child pornography. I knew there was a reason I couldn't stand that fucker!

Last year at this time, I was getting ready to pick up Kid P and his girlfriend from SFO. It was a great trip. On Sunday, my son and I took them down Hwy 1, from San Francisco to Pescadero, took them through Redwoods from the coast as a precursor to the next weekend trip where I took them to San Luis Obispo - cut across from Monterey and Carmel, went down Hwy 1 (which you can't do now because of landslides), went whale watching, Hearst Castle, wine tasting, and had an overall good time.

Lengthy phone conversation with my brother (5 years my senior).

Turns out his oesophagectomy two years ago wasn't enough. Cancer reappeared in his lymph glands and is growing fast... 6 months chemo ahead and not a very good prognosis.

I'm in shock.

:(

and I really hate cancer

So sorry, Felix. Fuck cancer. Hardly a person I know that's not going through it somewhere in their family. That really sucks. Prayers and good vibes.
