Project Dissertation

I moved to this fabulous city three years ago mainly to; be near an airport for travel, be able to not trade my stilletos for trainers, and to finish my doctoral studies in four years. Yes, that pretty much sums up my priorities at 30. So now I am ABD with nine months to go and San Francisco is no easy city to ignore. Although, I would argue that each experience that deters my academic writing is really just needed inspiration. Welcome and I hope you enjoy...

Sabado Gigante

Took the noon train to meet the girls at the Gold Dust Lounge in Union Square. Enjoyed $2.75 Mimosas and Irish Coffees. Learned that Kir Royale and champagne cocktails are $6.00! Still a deal, and a great atmosphere especially since it was light on the tourist.
We headed to Union Square Park but realized the India inspired flower show was actually inside. It was fun to wander around looking at the displays, for about 5 minutes. Then we found the queue for the henna artist. When I saw her I knew she was Chicana. Although we are often mistaken for East Asian and Middle Eastern, I can spot my own in this big city. My friend and I got matching bracelets. Well, she actually got the artist I got the assistant prima, sporting last nights hair and outfit :) She was cute, but parts of my henna bracelet are questionable.
Pre-bonfire drinks at the Beach Chalet with friend and her architect boyfriend. Oh, and they had invited his single pharmaceutical friend also. Micro-brew, and beer bread yum. I missed a call from my friend Sarah, she is amazing, just gave birth to an 8.8lb baby, the design on the restaurant banister reminded me of her.
It was windy, and the new fire pits in Ocean beach were all lit down the beach. Seems like we might actually make it to Burning Man this year. At the bonfire there was the usual toasting of marshmallows, people sharing what they had brought. Someone had donated 100 light saber swords- geeky. Sooo much fun though. Challenged by a 5 year old she taunted me, "Is that all you got, ha ha ha ha, come on!" Those mini burners are fierce- sweet.
It was too cold to stay out, and we already smelled like smoke, they decided we should plan a trip camping and that my friend would celebrate her July birthday back on Ocean Beach. We said good night.
My friends were down the street at the little Shamrock and I joined them. There I was smelling like a fire, joining my friend her boyfriend, and his friend on a blind date. Comedy. The blind date girl left and we headed to Pascuales Italian open til 1am for a very late dinner.
All about yoga and mass today.
