Mano Poderosa

And that would be my appetite coming back

Had a nice night with alextiefling and friend_of_tofu, in which I fed them kale and bean minestra (from Sundays at Moosewood, and I've notice that the pages are starting to fall out of my copy) and they gave me my ass on a platter. Seriously, Ms. Tofu played a GREAT game of Alhambra, despite her "oh I'm not sure if I should do this" WHAM! technique which brought shadowdaddy in mind of my grandmother. I was reminded of Nina, who's technique was, "Argh! Terrible! Hard! Um ... I won!" They also brought over cider and TWO kinds of chocolate, so that makes them extra great houseguests.

I've also noticed that I'm well enough to be annoyed at people again. Woo. Work induced tension back-ache!

Anyway, busy, just wanted to let you know that my health continues to improve, before I grab myself some second breakfast.

I'm not a fan girl for movie stars

I'm listening to "Otto's Baroque Musick" on the generally irritating 1.FM ...

and I hear this cello playing, deep and thoughtful and ... so beautiful.

Bach's Sonata C-Dur, with Preston, Pinnock, and ... of course, Jordi Savall. Man, that man knows how to play, or he's got a monopoly on the good recording equipment.
