San Francisco

I'm going in a few weeks! The tickets are purchased. Virgin America, I hope you are awesome. I flew Virgin from England once, and it was a bit silly, but you're fairly cheap, so I decided to get on board with you. Hooray!

So I need things to do there. If anyone knows Frisco and has suggestions, please let me know. I'll be there all day the 7th and 8th of July and most of the 9th. I want to eat chocolate, go to City Lights, go to the science museum, frolic on some piers, I think, you know, the usual.

So SF, if you're planning on having an NBC summer disaster special-level sort of earthquake, please feel free to wait until the 10th. Los Angeles, if you're planning on having said earthquake, really try to do it on the 7th or 8th. In other words, leave me out of it.

I feel like I did something noteworthy recently...

but I've forgotten.

Also, by noteworthy, I mean blog-worthy, which is essentially any time I go somewhere other than work, my apartment, the library, or the grocery store. Because that's 95% of my life. I need to, like, add another element to my life.

This picture of the Azores makes a nice desktop background. Also, I had no idea until this past week that Azores is pronounced with a hard a. No. I. Dea.

the other Manhattan

Manhattan Beach lies just south of El Segundo here in sunny Southern California. I spent Tuesday night there, had dinner at the Kettle, walked the pier with my shivering friend, and then had spectacular ice cream at the Manhattan Beach Creamery. It's beautiful there and you can park in the library parking lot after 6 without any grief. I then finished the second season of Californication, fittingly, at my friend's house in Venice.

Things are going well in the early development phase of my Gothic musical short that should be going into production sometime in August, knock on wood, cross your fingers, et cetera.

Am reading Neil Gaiman's American Gods. I think I know a plot twist, and it's taking it's sweet time getting there. But it is a sweet time. So we'll see how it goes.

June gloom finally broke today, and it was very lovely. So I went to get my eyes examined. My left eye is practically useless. Sigh.

Started a sketch writing class. Fascinating. I do so hate not being the funniest person there. I just have to remember: 'tis a class, not a competition.

I think that satisfied my update quota. If I think of anything later, it may dissipate into the void as I am currently laptopless and am sneaking this blog in on my roommate's Mac. TTFN.
In summing up, I wish I had some kind of affirmative message to leave you with. I don't. Would you take two negative messages?
