Assorted recent notes

  • Warning, William Curley Dessert Bar fans: It's down to one chef for the time being. Call in advance (ideally, no more than a week before you intend to go) to make sure there'll be a chef there on the day to accomodate your multi-course dessert cravings. Alternately, their pre-made stuff is pretty good. My expedition there with austengirl marked the second time in a row when I showed up to find them chef-less. Last time there was a little less they could have done about it: the chef was sick.

  • I went to Warwick and read the guidebook. I'd love to visit St. Mary's, with its plethora of tombs and memorials for historial personages who went on to a lively afterlife in Shakespeare's plays. This trip, all I managed was a brief walk through town, including one of the gates, and a pleasant restaurant evening with makyo and A. (which I will write up the next time I free up more hard drive space for photos).

  • The second pebble in the stonecircle family was christened on Sunday, a wonderful excuse for a York social reunion.

  • J. knew exactly what C. needed for his birthday: a really small remote control helicopter. He's much better at flying than landing, but then he's only had about 15 minutes total flight time so far for practice.

St. Mary's is really cool. I went there on a uni field trip, and it was worth every minute. Except maybe the "ADM is the designated translator of all things Latin" part.
