Alameda! Allllameda! Alameda! Alameda! Aleeedmeda!

So today I went to Alameda. I was invited there by someone I met at last year's conference. I lost her contact information, but luckily, she was volunteering again.

We've been through some bad stuff, and trying to figure out how men's minds work (impossible) family members who won't talk to us, and the general bullshit of life.

It is so nice to talk to someone who "gets it." We layghed, we cried, and had a great day.

No, I did not eat the dish named after me. I chickened out and my old standby, the fajitas.
Rebellious door is rebellious.
This is where we ate. ¡Delicioso!
I love sunsets and beaches.
Shopping at Ulta!
That's the sun, not a nuke going off.

More San Francisconess

You see all sorts of musicians, but you never see cello players. This was my instrument in high school so I had to listen for a little bit. He was good.
I can't remember if this is that one house that was sandwiched between two big buildings and it was selling for a crazy amount of money but it's cute even if it's not the right house. # therentistoodamnhigh
¡ El Gato Satanico!

Is Audi trying to diversify by selling mannequins? Not sure about that marketing strategy. #audiwhatthefuck

What Up, Pitches????

Two agents are interested. I guess I can write a helluva pitch.

Chinatown Again and San Francisconess

Gonna take you down to Chinatown. Happy Chinese New Year!
Between King Kee's last night and Chef Hung today, the 12-year-old girl inside of me is laughing hysterically. #irefusetogrowup
All this food for $7 including tip. Thank you, Yummy Dim Sum for feeding me on the cheap. #poverty
A cat in Chinatown.  #thatsallimgoingtosayaboutthat
I thought this was inappropriately funny. #marketing

I hope that this becomes a park, or affordable housing, but being that this is the United States, I'm sure they will build luxury lofts at only $10 million each. #capitalism #therentiswaytoofucking high #fortwaynemostaffordablecityinthecountry

Yeah, just park it in the drivew--oh never mind.
Isn't this the store for size 1 chicks/eight-year-old girls? #handbagsareonesizefitsalljustsayin'
This one sells sushi! #trendy
I find this picture sad. Lots of variations on this. #therentistoodamnhigh

More San Francisco

Ford's new sleeper bikes.
Really funny to see one of these in San Francisco.
 Sushi in Walgreens. We're not in Fort Wayne anymore.
 The 12-year-old girl inside me is laughing and snorting with glee.
Anne Perry rolled her eyes at me when she was sitting at lunch. I tried to talk to her, but it was very loud in the room and I couldn't hear her. However, I could hear the guy next to me just fine. #atleastigottotalktoafamousmurdererandlivedtotellaboutit
