It’s raining here in Alameda. The pitter-patter of raindrops of the roof is a welcome, yet oddly unfamiliar sound. I don’t think it’s rained in months.

Over the the weekend I logged into Facebook to do a little bit of research. Coincidentally Lara created an account as well. So I friended her. From across the house she laughed and said, “I’m trying to figure out how we know each other.” A few minutes later I went back to my friends list. Under her name — my wife of nine years — it says “you hooked up”.

We ate dinner last night at À Côté restaurant in Oakland. We arrived just before 8pm. Parking was a bit of a challenge. After wandering a bit we found a spot on one of the side streets. There is also a BART station near by with a large lot. The wait was about 30 minutes. The food was amazing and not too pricey, most entrees under $20. Highly recommended.
