Long Day

Today we biked across the Golden Gate bridge. No one fell off, even though some people haven’t biked for ten or twelve years. We’re all a little tired, although I was surprised by how flat most of the ride was. My usual route to and from downtown Ann Arbor is significantly more exhausting.

We walked around town a little bit, and acquired yarn and buttons to make a shrug-thing for my Sneaky sister.

Even better, everyone behaved so well that I didn’t have to threaten that I’d absquatulate.

Speaking of absquatulation (or perhaps I crafted that sentence simply to include the word, but you’ll never know), have I mentioned my new book, entitled The Highly Selective Thesaurus and Dictionary for the Extraordinarily Literate by Eugene Ehrlich? I found it in Dog Eared Books in the Mission and couldn’t resist.

This week’s finished book list includes (among other things):

The Last Time I wore a Dress by Daphne Scholinski

Look Me in the Eye by John Elder Robison

The Seamstress by Seren Tuvel Bernstein

Bill Bryson’s African Diary

The Invisible Kingdom by Ben Idan-Barak
