Whoa nelly

In the past three days, I have:

  • Sung Karaoke for the first time (My selection was 99 Luftballoons and I apparently rocked the house in a clumsy, hyper way)
  • Ridden a cable car for the first time
  • Gotten fairly drunk without ill effect
  • Seen some amazing art at SfMoma
  • Walked and walked
  • Met a lot of strange and wondrous new people
  • Got soaked in a magnificent downpour
  • Slept less than usual
  • Had a terrible fight and an amiable make-up
  • Wept at the bittersweet hopeful fairytale beauty of Amelie
  • Watched a bellydancer as though in a trance
  • Went to the Lusty Lady for a special benefit event and used their restroom, watched some naked ladies and a DJ in the booth
  • Attracted the attention of weird people
  • lost, and then recovered my ATM card as a side effect of a really animated (haw haw no pun intended) conversation about Sealab 2021 with a shoe salesman
  • Laughed a lot
  • Experienced the ass-kicking poetry of postmaudlin and was overwhelmed when she smiled and said "I've got you in my Livejournal friends list!!" and signed my copy of her book.
  • Barely got to hang out or talk much with nihilistic_kid, who was crashing on my couch, but thought he was pretty cool anyhow
  • Got a couple more Gundam kits (NERD NERD NERD)
  • Looked at beautiful buildings and some amazing skies
  • Had a lot a lot of fun hanging around sugaree while she was visiting

so... yeah. I have had a very busy, fun time.

Yeah, the problem was my jet lag. Usually I wake up at noon, but was popping up at nine and ready to hit the town there instead.

Thanks again for having me though. I ended up figuring out how to get to the plane for $3.00 instead of $40.00. 21 bus down Hayes to 6th, then walk two miles to Caltrain. Go to Milbrae. Take the shuttle to SFO. Woo!

Then of course, there was the rush across the terminal in Houston because we were stuck in the air for 40 extra minutes, the monorail in Newark to NJ Transit. NJ Transit to Newark Penn, then the PATH train to Journal Square, and then another mile walk and 13 hours later, I was home!

Well, cool, i'm glad you made it back in one piece!

You were a very hassle-free couchguest, which is a good thing. I'm more accustomed to the needy, confused, shellshocked variety.

There's even an easier way (less walking) to get to the Caltrain depot, take the 24 Divisadero to Castro, go down underground to Muni, take any train inbound/downtown to Embarcardero, get off and switch to an N Mission Bay that stops about 60 yards from the train station, et Voila! You don't even know how long it took me to figure that one out. I have to deal with a lot of Caltrain. Riding buses is cool.
