It took me 20 minutes to walk to work today…

and it was sweeet.  Walking down through the heart of the Tenderloin is not something to be done at any time other than busy working hours they say.  The truth is, there is plenty still to see even when the sun is up and the shadows are gone.  Ten minutes into my jaunt to the J-O-B this morning had me witnessing things I only previously saw in Indie films or documentaries.  Maybe I’m a little naive or maybe something like a puppy in a big, brave new world.. either way I definitely can’t wait for what I’m going to see next.  Before I get ahead of myself allow me to list the few things I saw during my 20 minutes including:

  1. A homeless 20-something fighting an older homeless man for a row of Fig Newtons.  Definitely, a sad sight.
  2. Another person, most likely a crackhead I’m deducing, standing on the sidewalk with binoculars pointed at the sky.
  3. Two little old chinese bag ladies walking down my street towards Market St. wearing the exact same clothes.  Definitely a camera-worthy scene.. the shopping carts carrying the huge bags filled with who-knows-what had as many trash bags inside of it and topping it as it had strapped to all sides of it.  The old lady in the front was directing the lady in the bag since she could barely see over her cart of trashy treasures.
  4. And the best one… a 6′8″ transvestite homeless person standing beside me in a pink polk-a-dot dress and matching pantyhose.  I tried not to look up at her as she waited beside me to cross the street - she would’ve HULK-smashed me with her huge banana hands.

If only I had my camera with me this morning and the skill to ninja to a safe distance to take great pictures.  Alas, I know I will have plenty more chances.

Hopefully I can begin to post more pictures again.  Work has had me working hours upon hours - coding like a madman.  And with that I have learned more in these past few weeks than I have ever learned in any four-week span.  Though most nights have me huddled up to my laptops (yes, two… one for coding, the other for hulu.com - if you don’t know now you know ninja)  until the early morning hours, surprisingly I wake up earlier than I should and show up early to the office for more.  I confess I am not as talented or even as intelligent as my fellow co-workers but I’ve made it my mission to at least seem like I am - be it late-nights or post-collegiate library sessions.  We’ll see how that goes…

On a more relevant note… I moved into my new studio apartment a few days ago with picture definitely pending.  My humble nest boasts a quaint kitchen - sans microwave for now, a bathroom with a door that takes super-strength to close, plenty of closet space (including a clothing rack 3 feet off the ground) and my sweet living space, complete with an office nook, bay windows, and exposed brick wall.  With that, Hotel Win is open and ready for visitors!
