This week went by very quickly, and I'm afraid that my weekend will be sucked up by 100+ proposals I have to look at. I'll be spending Saturday holed up at the local coffeehouse. Normally I'd work at home but I can concentrate best in a place where I can't just take a nap.

Last Sunday we went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. We went several years ago with mokey4 and this time toasted her with a root beer. On the way back we ate at a Waffle House and checked the results of the French presidential election on our iPhones. The waffles were good, but the rest of the menu was not so good. I couldn't believe that I couldn't order any fruits or veggies except for a limited choice of salads. IHOP was a lot better in that respect.

MoBob in his element

That night I met up with the Cal alumni supper club at Distrikt Bistro for Jewish Moroccan food. We'd eaten at the DCJCC before but this is a new restaurant. The food and service were okay - as usual the lively company was the best part of the evening. I wish I'd gotten a photo of my seatmate wearing a Cal yarmulke.

Thursday night we went to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy perform with the National Symphony Orchestra. The last time I'd seen them was on the Millenium Stage; this time the venue was much posher, but without any room for dancing. Alas.

I love Big Bad Voodoo Daddy!! :) I have almost everything that they have released so far. For me, it's the perfect pick me up music. You can't listen to music like this and stay in a glum mood.
