Mom and I are in San Francisco.

Seriously, this is the last time I'm flying until the holidays. (I said that when I returned from Albany last week, forgetting about this mini-trip.)

We're staying in a great hotel right on Fisherman's Wharf. The weather is gorgeous, despite original projections of rain and clouds. We had an amazing late lunch yesterday on the water before we went on the Alcatraz cruize. We've both been wanting to visit since we drove through San Francisco during my Berkeley visiting weekend 4 1/2 years ago (jesus - time flies).

We're going to walk over to Ghirardelli Square, then probably wander along the Wharf. Have a nice dinner, then we fly back late tonight.

George sent the syllabus out yesterday - the quarter is officially starting. The class is Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:30-11:50. Which is good, not too early. I won't know when my sections are until Monday. I'm desperately hoping one of the other two TAs is a morning person (most of the graduate student in my cohort are, so I'm shooting for probability here), because I may kill myself if I have to take the 8:30 section. Just saying. They're newbies still, and probably in classes, so maybe I'll convince them to take the earlier sections so that they have time in between that and seminar. Sections will be Wednesday and Friday. So, at least I'll have 3 day weekends.

I had really disturbing dreams last night. Luckily, I've lost most of it, but it had something to do with a serial killer making his way through my group of friends. I vaguely remember it being terrifying.

And I have a sore throat. If I'm getting sick . . . I may just have to cry.

You have a sore throat? You are in San Francisco?

I am sorry, but I think you may have caught "the gay".

Luckily, this is curable.

The Reverend Haggard and I will be praying for you.

This definitely made me laugh.

A lot.

And did again, just now.

I am glad. That was the point ;-)

Welcome to San Francisco! There are so many good restaurants here that it's an embarrassment of riches. If I remember correctly, you're a vegetarian and there are some terrific restaurants here -- Herbivore is great, so is Greens (near the Presidio). And if you have a sweet tooth, don't forget to try Citizen Cupcake. If you have any questions about fun stuff to see and do or need a restaurant recommendation, drop me a line on my LJ. Have a great time while you're here!

The only women I know who use a plane while shopping. Enjoy yourself down there! (wow that can be interpreted many ways)

Did I get killed? Or did I kick the serial killer's ass?

I don't remember if you were in the dream . . .

I'll start to worry when you start to worry about your LJ friends getting knocked off.

San Francisco - the Land of Concrete. California is one of the few states I haven't been to yet. I'd like to go visit there one day. I may take a long road trip next year simply to visit odd-ball places and snap a picture of the odd-ball and then drive onto the next odd-ball place. California is in that list. Quite a few times too!

The land of concrete? How did it get that term? I've never heard it before...

An old friend of mine flew down there to visit parents. She and her daughter made a modification of the "Find the state plate" game to "find the patch of grass". So I came up with "The land of concrete".

There's a huge chunk of California I haven't seen yet, but I'll probably be okay if I never do. Except for wine country. That I have to visit someday.

So far, the LJ friends are safe.

Oh god. Now they have DARK CHOCOLATE hot fudge. Which I would have been more than happy to eat on its' own with a spoon. :)
