1) Today I started Robert K. Massie's biography of Catherine the Great, and I keep having flashbacks to the few scenes I've seen of Marlene Dietrich in The Scarlet Empress.
2) Big about face in the evening. No, I did not work late or go swim, or even go to the supermarket. I got a call on the bus, and my friend Chris, who is moving to San Francisco next week, had dinner with me at Doyle's. Really, really good to catch up.
3) Look what I got in the mail tonight! From my friend Danny's Do Better Box.
