Like a vulture, I scavenged the city…

in search of all of its eccentricities including its random plaques, emergency fire hose outlets, streetlight control boxes, locksmith signs and sidewalk graffitti.  As random as these items all may seem, a rhyme did in fact play along with the reason we had to find each and every artifact.
Two weekends ago I participated in the [...]

If you forget to blog about it, who’s going to know it ever happened?
I admit I’ve neglected this blog for the past couple weeks.  I apologize to anyone who still reads this and especially Jody, who was the first from the Virginians to keep this lonely expat entertained for an entire weekend.
After a rocky and [...]

Muir Woods and Alcatraz

filled up most of our day on Saturday.  We headed out to Muir Woods - about 30 - 45 minute drive from the city - around 10 am or so.  Driving over the Golden Gate Bridge was a surprisingly cool trek.  The clouds covering most of the bridge and the way up ahead definitely created [...]

would probably be the best way to describe last weekend - which started with my very first visitor. The first, I hope, of many.
Jody came on Thursday night. It was really nice to see someone from home - I almost missed it a little less. So when I met up with her [...]

A walk in the park…

ended up turning into a whole-day event when I decided to hang out at the Golden Gate Park some Saturday morning.  After a 45-minute bus ride from my old Noe Valley sublet I was wandering the park aimlessly trying to remember where I was supposed to meet the church youth group I was planning on [...]

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 [...]

Almost the end of week 3…

and I’m starting to feel a little more settled.  As the days start to become more and more routine I can’t help but think back about how I ended up here.
Though my moving may have come as a surprise to some of my friends, to others it was a long time coming.  I do sometimes [...]

The Sitcom Weekend…

started Saturday afternoon.  After a somewhat late start (around 3pm) me, Josh, and Kristin (my badass roommates) decided to head to the top of Twin Peaks.  Twin peaks, according to good ol’pedia, is  situated in the geographic center of San Francisco, CA.  Due to its position in relation to my area Noe Valley/Mission, a lot [...]

I’d like to say I had a burrito today…

but I can’t. Though I did have an amazing personal pizza with pepperoni and anchovies… nice! And together with the mozzarella sticks I’d say I have just found my newest favorite pizzeria in San Francisco. I tried a few places downtown closer to Union square but found each of them to be bland [...]
