quickly pearl tea in fremont

i’m checking out quickly in fremont while waiting to have dinner with jimmy tonight. it turns out that they do have free internet access, but you have to ask them for the password. sort of annoying that they do that, but i’m browsing the web, so i can’t complain. i don’t think that i really enjoy the pearl tea here, though.

i think that i’m going to make snickerdoodles tonight. i had forgotten that a co-worker of mine is going to be leaving after tomorrow so i think that i’ll make some cookies to send her off. that means that tonight’s plans will RADICALLY change. i’ll have to make a stop at safeway to grab some key ingredients.

i woke up pretty early this morning and got into work around 7. i’ve been getting into work later and later lately so coming in early again felt good. i got a good chunk of work done because there were fewer distractions. i think that i may have to go back to that schedule full time.

i’m trying to figure out which cookies i should make next. i keep wanting to make a different kind of cookie, but i always end up making snickerdoodles because they are so tasty.

i really ought to make some kind of effort to expand my cookie horizons, though. this weekend is going to be an experiment in fondue and i need to get more variety.

speaking of fondue, if anyone knows any good oil broths for fondue, please send them my way.

jack johnson - in between dreams

i don’t usually swoon over men, but i make exception with jack johnson and his latest album in between dreams.

there is no combination of words
that i could put on the back of a postcard
no song that i could sing
but i could try for your heart

our dreams and they are made out of real things
like a shoe box of photographs
and sepia tone loving

love is the answer
at least for most of the questions in my heart
like “why are we here?”
and “where do we go?”
and “how come its so hard?”

its not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving
i’ll tell you one thing it’s always better when we’re together

swoon me, jack.
mean it.
