Just staying inside. Ironically the chest cold I brought home makes it impossible to smell the smoke. But visibility is zilch. Yesterday SF had worst AQ in the world. Buildings a block away were fuzzy.

Now if only they can figure out how to replace the elevators at 168th street without the #1 having to bypass the station. 

There's some new Icelandic elevator technology they're waiting to siphon.

visitors who asked if they could come at an odd time to see the baby. turns out on arrival that this was at least partly so they could use the house as a changing/regrouping station between their morning family outing, and going somewhere else later in the afternoon. this includes three children who i'm normally delighted to see but who're making a bloody racket in the house while our toddler naps. and the parents seem incapable of keeping them away from the areas closer to his room. miraculously, he has not yet woken up.


7.5 years later i am happy to say that i have no memory of this or who these people were.
