Went to Gayle and Rebecca's post-Egypt party. Lot's of pictures of camels and tales of sticking one's hands into ancient orifices. Ate om-ali for the first time. It's sort of like rice pudding, which I like. Also had lamb kabobs. I'm not normally a fan of lamb, but man, they tasted delicious. Also, let me just say that I hope the galabeya catches on in the West. Thanks to Gayle and Becca and Will and Addision (?) for hosting us. On Saturday, Robin and I saw "Fantastic Mr. Fox" at the Bluelight Cinema in Cupertino. I could take or leave Wes Anderson's previous films, but I really liked this movie. "You're supposed to be *my* lab partner. I am! No you're not. You're disloyal."

Sunday, I drove to Zanker Road waste facility aka "dump" to drop off some old carpet and a stinky sofa. On my way there, I passed a huge mega-church that was just letting out. There were so many people that they had police officers out directing traffic.

I was supposed to take a Russian class at noon at the dojo, but the teacher flaked. So we hung out looking up handy phrases on a Russian dating site. Many of the phrases may be correct Russian, but they're terrible game:

When I met you for the first time I understood: it's forever.
I can't live without you.
There's no borders for my love.

After picking up a sofa donated to the Dojo, I stopped at Costco in South San Francisco. Madness! The place was packed. I was also accosted at the end of the checkout to upgrade to the Executive membership. I declined, irritated that they would hold up the line to upsell me. Finally, I went on a date to Plato's in Palo Alto. It's a make your own salad place. Pretty decent salad, but the staff were the friendliest or communicative bunch. Afterwards, we went to Border's and read "Be Here Now" by Ram Dass. LSD: it's a terrible drug.
