i suck at multitasking. while i was writing, i ran the washing machine without loading it first. duh. "resolved" a plumbing issue by removing the elbow from under the kitchen sink. all i found was some black water (cue doobie brothers song), but at least now it's draining properly. note to self: don't dump vegetable debris down the drain.
hickey sprung for lunch at montgomery street cafe. one of the funniest cats i know, and the soul of HIO. then i went hunting and gathering for tomatillos, cilantro, peppers, and spinach to make fish tacos, which would have been good (a perfectly serviceable tomatillo salsa) if not ruined by a fish that turns gelatinous when heat is applied to it. the fire next time. backup meal: curly's custard.
yakking with hickey and b-rock miller on FB later, got on a faces/terry anderson kick.
