Books and Food, What Else?

I had bookgroup today and took the books from the to-be-read that I had duplicates of or didn't want, as well as the Harry Potter series. We also had a batch of ARCs, none that I wanted. Some of both batches were taken by other members and the rest of my books went to the Friends of the Library drop.

We had a new person -- a guy roughly my age, works with cars (didn't say so, but grease around his nails), newly divorced and moved back up here to live with his dad -- and he had an excellent knowledge of SF in all its forms and he handled the digressions quite well. The new guy from last time emailed us to say he couldn't come today, and even that is a good thing because if people don't plan to come back at all, we never hear from them. It's always good to have new people.

Afterwards we went to a new restaurant in the area, California Tortilla, which was quite good for the fast food look. Four of us tried the same three hot sauces (they have a Wall of Flame with 75 varieties that you can try (and then buy a new one, if you want)) and the three guys turned colors with the #10 Endorphin Rush while I was saying "Nice burn in the throat...." I know I can handle hotter things than most people, but I didn't mean to make the guys feel bad.

I looked at my eyelids in the mirror when I got up at 1pm today and they were fine. About 4:30pm, I used the library restroom and looked in the mirror while I washed my hands, and my right upper eyelid overlapping edge is starting red and swollen. At least I have a suggestion for what to try with it.
