I'm on Day 4 in San Francisco. B and I spent the first day hanging out with B's brother at his place, and the second day wandering around the city, hitting such tourist highlights as the sea lions, and a good chunk of Market St. We ended the day at Zuni Cafe, on the recommendation of my brother, and shortly after that, I was hit with food poisoning. (B blames Zuni, but I think I got sick too fast for that, and the burritos we ate for lunch are a more likely culprit.) Fortunately, we'd planned to stay in a hotel that night anyway, so I didn't have to worry about returning to the suburbs, and was able to spend most of the night on the floor of the hotel bathroom. Twelve hours later, just as I was starting to feel a little better, B came down with the same thing. We booked an extra night in the hotel, and spent the rest of the day in bed, watching the Law & Order marathon on TNT. (Sadly for me, the hotel only had about 20 channels, and there really wasn't much on during the day. B was too sick to care.)

We're still recovering today, so we've mostly been watching TV at B's brother's place. I'm hoping that by tomorrow, we'll actually feel up to doing something again.

I was up at my parents' on Saturday for my father's surprise birthday party. Fun times were had by all--especially by me during poker (if only we played for real money!)--but I seem to have managed to pick up my father's cold while I was there. I slept very fitfully last night, and today I'm feeling very lazy. All I really want to do is eat chicken noodle soup. Instead, I'm going to be marking essays and coding blogs and reading de Beauvoir. Oh, and I may go out later to stock up on cold meds and soup.

I made an optometrist appointment today. I decided to go with a new doctor since the last one I used is over an hour away, and so they gave me a new patient info sheet to fill out and bring with me when I show up for the appointment. One of the things I was asked was whether I have any family history of glaucoma, cataracts, blindness, macular degeneration, or diabetes.

I had to say yes to every single one of those.
