"This is a hold-up."

I’ve spent the last two weeks either in front of the TV or reading a book. Low-key entertainment.

I won’t even go into how much money I’ve probably saved just by staying home, but I assure you, I am very pleased. I go through these phases often, when I’d much rather stay home than go out. In addition to saving money, it is an excellent way to unwind.

But eh, so it goes. I trekked out this past weekend because some old friends were in town. After work on Saturday, they picked me up and we did the usual touristy activities: dinner at Fisherman’s Wharf and dessert in Ghirardelli Square. I wanted to take them to Tommy’s Joynt on Geary and Van Ness, but we had a vegetarian in the group and I didn’t think it wise to dine at a hof-brau (or hofbrau?).

I watched two movies today: “City of God” and “Casino.” The first film has been a long time coming. Leibs raved about it when I was in high school, and I regret not making it a priority back then.

Unfortunately, my “Casino” was sullied by the fact that I was heavily distracted by Robert De Niro’s spectacles through the film.
