I just got home, and as I came up to the gate for my building, one of my upstairs neighbors was struggling with her bicycle and several bags of groceries. I asked if she needed a hand, and she seemed really overwhelmed and relieved and really all I did was unlock the gate and hold it for her, but she said "Are you devoted to me? I don't know if you want to take me on!" I laughed and she told me where to get fresh vegetables, and then she said "Oh my god! Thank you! Thank you! You're my Friday 5pm Angel!!!"

That was nice. People can be so nice.

I went to see the amazing Eva Hesse show at SFMoma, and wowwowwow. It was really fun going with my friend Niffer, because she walked around saying things like "Oh, someone born in 1945 made a painting!" and we laughed a lot. 2 whole floors were closed off, that was kind of jacked. I love my membership at SFMoma. It gives me an excuse to take everyone I know to see some art, and it's a really entertaining way to spend the day. I really like hanging out with Niffer. I don't do that often enough. She and I wandered around snapping photos with our digital cameras, which was like having an art school study buddy, only less cheesy.

I bought an eyeglass repair kit and fixed my glasses at Cafe Frjtz, which was full with quasi-hip kids eating crepes. I ate a Gaugin salad and it was Mighty Fine. Mi-T Fine. The weather was all warm and muggy but in a nice way. When we left the museum, the weather went from balmy to bleak in about 4 minutes. Market street turned in to this winter wasteland with rain and everything. Crazy!

I keep playing with these cool little Pontiki eggthingtoys that I bought, they're weirdo Japanese Mr. Potato head things with interchangeable parts. They're zany fun! I was going to give one to Joel but then I had too much fun with the first one and so he'll have to wait for some other gift.

I need to go figure out what's wrong with my left shoulder, it's driving me nuts.

tasty salad!pff. They make you feel so welcome at sfMoMaadowable widdle eggpig thingies

Pontiki
Them Pontiki whatchamathingerz look kinda like some Shockwave "paper doll" toy (http://www.comedycentral.com/southparkgames/playset/playset2.jhtml), except they're real and tangible. Plus no MIME setup needed!

I bet collecting up 30 or 40 Pontikis would allow the parts to do some wild and wacky shee-0t. But, considering the price to do that, you could probably do just the same stuff at the same price with some sort of building toy (like LEGOs or some other such toy not as cool as LEGOs).

Yeah Niffer is a barrel of laughs and everything. I enjoy her weirdity. The Pontikis were bought yes at the cool toy store on Third. I will go there tomorrow seeking further Pontikis. There were other things to do near there as well! I am in a good, good mood.

Re:
Phew, yeah that would be kind of a bizarro coincidence. I like the way that song starts out, it reminds me of the sound you hear when you're coming out of deep water to the surface, and there's that muffled rush of ambient noise.

I mostly read other people's journals to get ideas and learn about new weirdo things, and you offered me up a nice song, how cool! I'm a musical sponge.
