It's no Niagara, but certainly worth the trip.
This one is just in case you didn't believe that I was actually there.

5 tart green apples
a good amount (1 cup?) brown sugar
a good amount (2 tbsp?) cinnamon
a dash (1/2 tsp?) nutmeg
1/2 a stick of butter
some (2/3 cup?) water
Peel and core apples. Cut into quarters, then cut each quarter into 5 or 6 slices, so the slices are about 1/4 inch thick. Mix brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg (in that order) with water in a separate bowl, blending with a fork. Pour water/spice mixture and melted butter over apples in square pyrex pan. Make sure all the apples are coated with yummy deliciousness. Bake uncovered in oven at 350 degrees, mixing/basting apples every 10-12 minutes. Bake until apples are soft but still hold their shape. Broil for a few minutes to brown if you're into that.

I thought this was a quirk of this particular gentleman. It appears I was mistaken--the powerful allure of Mr. Justice Cardozo is not to be underestimated. In Corporations the other day we admired the photo below while discussing Meinhard v. Salmon. Not satisfied with the presence of the photo alone, the professor asked a student to read aloud from the opinion. While standing up. With Shakespearean emphasis. So it seems our adventures with the great Cardozo continue.

2. The costumes in the movie The Fifth Element were designed by the world famous and possibly totally insane fashion legend Jean Paul Gaultier.

SF has some nasty hills. My calves were sore for two days.
Then, this weekend, my DC friends Navah and Katie were in town for a conference. I met them in Golden Gate Park, wandered around the Japanese Tea Garden for a while, and then made our way to the neighborhood ("the Sunset") and ate at Cafe Gratitude, a vegan raw food restaurant. The food was actually pretty good. I think the key is to not expect the food you get to be like the food you're used to--a raw vegan enchilada is not going to look or taste anything like the enchiladas you'll get at the local taqueria. Once you get over that hump, it can be kinda tasty.

I said I'd go hang out with my great-grandmother. I stand by my answer.
UPDATE: That must not have been the right answer, 'cause, yeah, no callback there. Le oops.
