In this post: Quakes, bags, dumplings.
I just read on CNN.com that Los Angeles had a 5.1-magnitude earthquake last night followed by a bunch of smaller aftershocks. The quake’s epicenter was in Fullerton (in Orange County) but shaking was felt all over the region, including the Hollywood Hills, Rodeo Drive, beautiful downtown Burbank and the usual list of snooty stores and restaurants. Also palm trees. Sam and I have a lot of family in L.A. and we both hope you’re all okay and nobody’s bathroom mirror fell off. EARTHQUAKES ARE SCARY.
This is the first Saturday in months that we’re finally expecting beautiful weather — 74° with lots and lots of sunshine — and Sam is so deliriously excited that I might have to administer barbiturates to calm him down. Maybe we’ll GO FOR A RIDE today and EAT LUNCH IN A REAL RESTAURANT! I’LL EVEN WEAR A BRASSIERE AND SHOES! At the moment we’re considering Cafe Greek or dim sum at Hong Kong Royal so stay tuned for further developments. In the meantime, the map below indicates: A) Howdygram headquarters; B) Cafe Greek on Preston Road in Dallas; and C) Hong Kong Royal north of the President George Bush Turnpike in Carrollton, which is a considerable shlep but well worth the effort because SHRIMP DUMPLINGS AND HOT SAUCE.
