Valentine’s Day Dinner

David and Miguel had me over for dinner last night for Valentine's Day. They ordered in a delicious pizza from Little Star, which was amazing! I unintentionally used forced perspective when taking this photo, so the pizza looks significantly larger than it really was. :)

Double Cuteness

Platelet Donation

Monthly Platelet Donation. I was just informed by the staff that they believe I have the highest platelet count of any of their donors in San Francisco. 😳 Not that this is something to be competitive about (there's nothing that can be done to intentionally increase one's platelet count), but Wow! My most recent platelet count is 541, but it has been recorded as high as 678 (almost 4 years ago in the Seattle area when I was actually turned away because it was too high). Average normal-high is 250-350.

What does this mean when I donate? I can donate two units of platelets in less than half the time that it would normally take a donor to donate one unit. (Today's donation will take 50 minutes.) Win-Win!

Just had the best 6.5 hours hanging out with Mykail. It has been years since we've had a chance to spend so much quality time together. I've missed him so much, and my heart is very happy. Best part: I get to see him again tomorrow before I head back to SF.

Magnolia Cafe

I had a great morning in Austin. I walked almost 2 miles to Magnolia Cafe, which four people told me I had to go to over the last week! It was packed so I sat at the counter. Eventually a man sat next to me and we struck up a conversation. He's the owner of the restaurant (40 years!). He had the server give me a small dish of their famous queso to have with my omelette, and also offered me a free T-shirt! So sweet! BTW: their gingerbread pancakes are amazing!

The Amazing Acro-Cats!!

I've known of this show for a few years. They were in SF a few years ago, but I was living in Bellevue at the time. Imagine my delight when I saw they were playing here in Austin tonight, tomorrow and Thursday, and less than one block from my hotel!

The Amazing Acro-Cats

I'm visiting Austin (for the first time!) where the motto is "Keep Austin Weird". I'm doing my part by seeing The Amazing Acro-Cats! (I've known about this show for a few years when they were in SF but I was living in Seattle). Oddly excited!! ❤️😻
