Tales from the Sun

okay, well really this is just a spot for me to ramble on about random topics

Sunday, February 13, 2005
okay, so it has been a while since I last blogged.

To make long story short, I blame the government (stole that one from Amanda). Actually, I've just been working a lot. We finally launched the "search engine friendly website" and so I can finally breath a little. I also have a new boss (our new CMO came on board). We are all really excited to have him on board. The energy in our marketing group is infectious.

Among all the chaos at the office, I did mange to take a quick trip to San Francisco this past week. Unfortunately, I was only there for two very short days. However, I did stumble upon Voda, a chic vodka bar in the Parisan-inspired Belden Place Alley (just steps from the Omni Hotel where I was staying in the Financial District). They boast 96 bottles of vodka, all illuminated on modern white block shelving with changing accent lights. It was right up my alley. Even with all of those choices, I stuck with my favorite - Kettle One Dirty Martini, straight-up! I can still taste that last olive!

For dinner the next night, the concierge suggested a lovely Italian restaurant, Palio (again within walking distance). I had roasted quail stuffed with rabbit and mushrooms. It was incredible.

Despite the threat of yet another major storm in Boston, my flight Thursday night arrived 6 minutes ahead of schedule. I contemplated driving up to NH that night, but thankfully I waited until the morning (even that drive was messy). I took Amanda to the hospital for her knee surgery. I then returned home to anxiously await the phone call that she was out of surgery. Everything went well, thankfully. I then spent the rest of Friday and Saturday reading aloud to Amanda while she drifted in and out from her lovely morphine induced haze. I don't think I've ever read an entire novel out loud. It was great fun, although, I'm not pleased with how the book ended. Oh, I was reading John Grisham's new book, The Last Juror. I've been stewing about the damn thing all day. If you read it, let me know your opinions, I don't want to spoil it for anyone.

Lastly, after suffering a stroke a couple weeks ago, my Grammie Kilby is finally well enough to have the brain tumor removed tomorrow morning. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
