post-Christmas, day 3
Quick lunch at DishDash, a 4.5 star rated place on Yelp with 1000+ reviews. Absurd! So we had to check it out-- both Erik and Diana love it. Mediterranean or Middle Eastern food. The shish kebab was good but the rice was underwhelming, Erik liked his wrap but didn't find it as amazing as the last meal he'd had here. Verdict: it was good, but I suspect here in Sunnyvale they're simply not used to the abundance of awesome Middle Eastern food that we have in west Los Angeles...
Cleaned up, said bye to the family, then tried to beat the incoming rain on the way back to Los Angeles. Needless to say I failed, and took almost a hundred miles before I was out of the rain. Then a 5-car accidently I-5S north of Lost Hills/CA-46 screwed things for 40 or 45 minutes. Doh.
Made it back to LA safe and sound though, checked the plants (must've rained Christmas weekend as they were still moist), then made it home and collapsed into bed. t'was a good holiday and a great Christmas!
