Rage. and fried chicken.

It's amazing how quickly your mood can change. Like, for example, if your plumbing in your apartment is broken for the third time in a week and your landlord keeps pretending that he can fix the problem without a professional. That can affect your mood pretty quickly.

Not to be a total downer, though, I guess. Last night for my birthday I went out with a few people and my sister who is staying with me for last night and tonight. We went to Maverick and it was delicious. This has been a luxurious weekend food-wise, really. At Maverick I got the fried chicken and the pumpkin fritters, which I guess means I had two fried dishes, but, really, who is counting? We had a good pinot noir and then a Zinfandel that I had had at a winery earlier this year and really like. Justin and Dan both ordered the antelope, and I tried it and it was quite frankly amazing. The dessert was good too. All in all a great birthday meal. Lucie was laughing at us because, as she puts it, only in San Francisco can you get fried chicken for $24. Probably not entirely true - you could probably get it for that in New York and maybe LA. But I guess it is a very SF thing to have like free-range antelope and fried chicken and milk & cookies for dessert, all for about $300 for 6 people. Still, I recommend it highly. We'll be going back for brunch.

More later.
