Such a busy day! Rowing 9:30 - 11 (proper write-up later), then off to Jade Garden to meet shadowdaddy's out of town visitors for a brief snack before they went to the baseball game. I stopped by Liem's Aquarium and Bird Shop, home of the world's unhappiest pets, and picked up a bag of feeder goldfish for the pond in front of my house (they'll feed on the mosquitos). I was, surpisingly, talked into buying a "long tail" Siamese fighting fish. Once I got home, I found myself worn out (and suffering from carb overload), and fell into a deep sleep once I'd got the fish set up.
Up, I headed back to Chinatown to meet splendid_geryon and ms_vermilion and get a package to England in the mail (probably not in time for next Saturday, but oh well). Matcha bubble tea in hand, we dawdled enough that we were able to catch shadowdaddy on the flip side of the baseball game, and I took him back home (via the nice pet food store above). Now we're going to be seeing Robin Guthrie and Harold Budd at the Egyptian and meeting the father-in-law in an hour ... I must work on cleaning up a bit before we leave again!
