I'm feeling a sudden compulsion to update the blog. I leave for San Francisco in a few days and who knows when I'll have the time to do it there what with all the eating out and the sightseeing and the wine tasting and the overnight trips. Add to that the fact that my sister's home is DSL free and you have a barren little blog. A trip back to San Francisco is always something to look forward to, but it's particularly exciting (and a little strange) that when I land on Monday, my brother, his wife and 3 rambunctious children will be hanging out at my sister's apartment. It's like 2 worlds colliding. Actually it's really 9 worlds colliding as that is how many of us will be collided under one roof. I have already warned my friend Jamie that I might have to seek refuge at her apartment for a night or two (or three). So yes, I am excited, but there's a small, pathetic part of me that wishes I had a few days off here in L.A. before going up there. I've been working a lot lately and I would just like to catch up on my life for a bit. And by catching up on my life I mean getting a manicure, doing laundry, lying on the couch watching tennis, and getting up to date on "So You Think You Can Dance?"
