Mmmmeat; weekend news

Today we had dinner at a churrascaria, an all-you-can-eat Brazilian steakhouse where waiters bring around various cuts of meat on giant skewers and slice them for you, at your table, using small machetes. The effect is like being served meat with swords, which is pretty awesome. The meat was pretty darn tasty, too. A little pricey, but fun.

And now I head into a family weekend. July 4th is my grandma's birthday, so we'll be going up to Santa Rosa for that, and then we head over to Davis for T's family reunion. It's one of those big "all the aunts and uncles and cousins and everyone but the kitchen sink" type reunions, so it's fun, but also a bit draining because a lot of these are people I either don't know at all or have only met once or twice. I do like T's family, but his father is one of 13 children, so there are an awful lot of those aunts and uncles and cousins and so forth running around.

As a result, I don't expect to be around much, or at all, between tomorrow morning and sometime Sunday. So I wish a wonderful weekend to all!
