My people.



I'm there in like the first three seconds, immediately behind Brody (the desaturated Santa). To say that I spent all of Santacon with all of these Santas might be stretching it. To say that I know none of these Santas would be equally untrue. Let's just say that I'm happy about feeling like one of the cool kids (very rare...

The grey santess was really impressive. I thought it was video manipulation.

For the last 0.5 hours I have had more money than I have ever seen in my life. This will last for (checks watch) approximately 3 more hours.
But that's okay.
Cause I'm getting a truck
That's right.
A truck.

This is the song I'm singing in my head: "Shove it, and love it, and dance around above it, shove...

Mission Bachelorette Party...successful.

There were sashes. And pins. And amusingly-shaped candy. And a very large piece of anatomy on a leash. And a hotel room. And MATCHING GLITTERY PINK SHIRTS. We ate pizza and chips and played stupid games like we were still 12 years old, drank like we were still 21 (mostly for free), heckled strange men, received marriage proposals along with desperate...

Well.

This would have been funsies.

It also explains the cop knocking on my door yesterday..."Ma'am, we're pretty sure a dude waving a gun ran through your back yard last night....see anything?"

The best part was when the cop gave me his cop stare, you know, the one they practice, the one that says "I know everything you've ever done...

Just, I mean...seriously? Who the hell sprains her FOOT? Ankle, yes. Foot? Lame. Laaaaaaaaame.

(Oh dear, I did not mean that to be a pun, or any play on words at all. I just meant that it sucks. And my foot hurts. And it's hard to walk...)

I did something awful to my plantar fascia that's only now MOSTLY healed after months of babying the thing. That's a bit like a foot sprain, no?

As for the speed up, I cut the rest of my travel short two days after the laptop got stolen, realizing I'd rather end the vacation and get to work on my iPhone goals. I booked the first flight that wasn't stupid expensive back to Mobile, where I'll sort out renewing my cars tags, getting set back up to code on a new laptop, and then head out to... maybe the East Bay.

I have to actually check out loftspaces myself. But if you'll let me pay a chunk of rent or groceries or somesuch I will need a base of operations for a week or two while I tour places. I CAN'T take advantage of your hospitality like last time without doing something in return, though, so let me know what would be welcome.

Alas, now I'm in New Mexico.

But yes! The plan is to leave LA first thing on the 6th and reach the East Bay around midafternoon. W00t!

Thanks to my climbing experience (knots) and my intimate knowledge of Trainspotting (this one part where Sick Boy is getting dressed), I now know how to properly tie a tie. Why, you ask, am I wearing a tie? Because it's just that kind of day...

Also, me, at the coffeeshop, trying to reach an outlet under an older gentleman's foot: Excuse me, sir...

Thanks.

Hey, silver lining. I might be back in the US and checking out the bay area that much sooner.

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, I'm going to be a...bridesmaid! I feel all special and awesome. I get to wear a pink cocktail dress, and it isn't even a burner wedding!

Massive Update, Epistolary Interruption

Dear rather startled BART station residents and pedestrians,
If you were wondering why the crazy lady with the celery stalk strapped to her back like a samurai sword, forty pounds of groceries teetering on the back of her bike, and a baguette getting VERY fresh with her bum made an abrupt u-turn at the intersection, left the bike path, and zoomed...

Massive Update, Part 1: Parties, Reviews, Recommendations, and the usual weirdness.

Jan 1, New Year's Eve

A little boring. Didn't do much, just a small get together, though I did learn that it pays to forage your own chanterelles...yummy!

Jan 3, The Boy's Birthday

I thought I was clever. I thought I was so very, very clever...
So, the boy wants...

OK, I cringed a few times that one. Well delivered.
