The worst: Outback Steakhouse Aussie Cheese Fries with Ranch Dressing! So bad that it beat out Bob Evans Caramel Banana Pecan Cream Stacked and Stuffed Hotcakes. What puzzles me is how KFC's Bowls of Fat didn't make the list. Speaking of food, Cindy and I stopped at a new Peruvian restaurant in the neighborhood last night after teaching. Seems to be called "Peruvian Food." I practiced my Spanish with our host. You can feed a family on one Peruvian entree, but we got three because I wanted to try the anticucho de corazon--grilled veal heart skewer. "Corazon? Verdad?" I said. "Si, es verdad." Y me gusta. So today for lunch I get to finsh the leftover chicharron de calamares. Next week we're going for the ceviche.

"At first, people kept phoning, to make sure that Nita was not too depressed, not too lonely, not eating too little or drinking too much. (She had been such a diligent wine drinker that many forgot that she was now forbidden to drink at all.) She held them off, without sounding nobly grief-stricken or unnaturally cheerful or absent-minded or confused. She said that she didn’t need groceries; she was working through what she had on hand. She had enough of her prescription pills and enough stamps for her thank-you notes."
