Went to Chiang Mai for dinner with Jim and Lucia. Didn't have Bubble Tea, which I regretted not taking a photo of when we did have it weeks ago -- obviously the opportunity wasn't regretted enough to make me order that (foul) beverage once more. Had... um... squid, green curry, swimming angel.
Jim says I have good parking karma. I said Connie has the famously good parking karma. I was telling them about my "Thrift Shop Tag" invention, which is a webpage and the url is emailed to the taggee by the tagger. The taggee looks at the page then sends me a pic of a find, which I post. Jim said I should have Parking Karma Tag, which is good -- here's one: Yes, the tree is growing out of the beer bottle.
The fishes at C.M. were elusive. Here's one:
Chiang Mai is operated by Xinh's brother. Jim was trying to get me to say I would make a jaunt to Xinh's new rest. on B'way, but I said I wouldn't, although I do like Xinh and Lom (little son). Once, when I used to eat at Mini Saigon (squid in hot sauce) every day, Xinh said, "You need Mini Saigon Anonymous." Then I was taken up short and didn't go there as often. Then I moved and stopped going entirely. I had gone there for a few reasons: they have a newspaper, I didn't want to spoil Mekong for myself by eating there too much, and I didn't have to think at all or even look at a menu if I didn't want to.
The little daughter of the bro. of X. is about 4. Her name is Kianna, (spelling phonetic) pronounced like the 1970s synthetic fabric Qiana*, but spelled similar to the nation. I think. I don't guarantee I'm correct, however. She was VERY NICE, as all 4 year olds are, and had made a welder's mask with antennae somewhere.
[DuPont] A former registered trademark for a silk-like nylon fiber composed of PACM-12. Qiana® was first introduced in 1968. However, that fiber is no longer produced and the name is currently used at DuPont for a certification mark for any fabrics reaching a set standard. Qiana® fabric had the look and feel of silk but can be machine washed. It is resistant to abrasion and most chemicals. (from Conservation and Art Materials Encyclopedia Online)
