I'm suffering some disappointments today. Primary among them is the failure of one of my dogs' digestive systems to keep the contents of their lower intestines intact until my return this afternoon. There is also some sadness about missing the free tickets to Swan Lake I could have got this afternoon, but now I want to go on Thursday if I can get someone (sallysimpleton?) to go with me. Then there is the complete and utter heartbreak that Koraku will be closing its doors at the end of the month. Gods! Is there no end to my suffering? I'll console myself by going to Cathy's and playing some Puerto Rico, and then eating at Koraku tomorrow for lunch.
