Emcee Chrissie #CrazyFunnyAsians Comedy Showcase #Hellafunny standup comic @nowmusicsf downstairs, on being a 4th-generation Japanese American now totally Westernized, except her face. First of seven on stage, most living within a few blocks of the venue. Venue almost full on for an Sunday early evening show, great for audience members with a day job.

Takes some reading to appreciate @abboutjoana and #KhalilJoreige (2014) #TheGeometryOfSpace @ThePowerPlantTO as part of #OnScams exhibition. Circulation of e-mail messages printed in #TheScamAtlases book, drawn on walls in pencil, and represented in 3D with curved oxidized steel rods. Faced surface for traffic in 2008, attendant warned to not lean on the opposite wall, in case the graphite might get rubbed away.

Dinner hosted by houseguest first met by sons on vacation in Thailand, coming across the ocean for the first time for a new world experience. Long dialogues in Thai language with restaurant owner on food preferences and allergies. Food prepared in sauces that seems lighter than those I have recently recalled. Dessert with birthday song for RDI. (Sala Modern Thai Kitchen, Danforth Avenue, Toronto, Ontario) 20190918
