Guess what! Next week I’m going to California! I’ve never been and I’m super excited about it. Several months ago my good friend Dawn told me she was attending a conference in San Francisco and asked if I wanted to join her for a Danny Tanner adventure once her obligations were over. Pretty tempting… I’ve always wanted to go to SF and what better time to do it? Okay, well, it’s not exactly the most ideal time to visit the US considering everything that’s going on, but I bought my ticket before this shirtshow really got underway and it’s non-refundable so…I’m goin’.
Which leads me to my request, people of San Francisco, or just frequent visitors, WHERE SHOULD WE EAT?! Any must-eat places you can recommend?
You know? I still have regrets about not eating enough in Nashville. We’re looking for at least one nicer dinner, cheaper lunches, cool drink spots, etc. Well, you know what I like. We’re staying in the North Beach area but we’ll be all over the place so we’re easy. I don’t even know what SF is known for food-wise, so I need some help.
I’m also visiting my long time blog friend Cely for a few days while I’m out there, which I am SO excited about. We’ve been internet friends for about 5-6 years now but have never actually met in person, so that’s going to be a time! I can’t believe it’s finally happening. When I told her I was coming out there she immediately offered to host me for a romantic Valentine’s weekend. We’re starting off our adventure in Lake Tahoe, and this is one of the pictures Cely took when she was there a couple weeks ago…
I die. That picture takes my breath away. I can’t even imagine in person. Ah, I’m getting overwhelmed thinking about all the shenanigans.
Other things that are going on…
Tilly is still loving the crap out of her cat tree.
It’s the best $100 I’ve ever spent. She seriously lives in it.
Tilly and Bonnie are still not friends. We still have Bonnie in the guest room with the screen separating them and do an hour or two of supervised visits every day. Tilly is just OBSESSED with Bonnie and wants to harass her all the time, but Bonnie would prefer to be left alone. Every encounter is just soooo dramatic. Tilly will get closer and closer until she’s all up in Bonnie’s face like the below photo, and then one of them will start swatting in the other’s direction and I’ll have to intervene with a feather toy to distract them.
I am seeing improvements though, so I still have hope they’ll be coexisting in a couple of weeks.
The other day I was looking through my Netflix and saw the OA was recommended to me…
Because I watched the cracking fireplace. I’m not sure what my show choices say about the kind of person I am… Anyone watch the OA? Because based on that recommendation it sounds just riveting.
And is anyone watching Riverdale yet?
I was freaking obsessed with Archie comics when I was younger, my bestie and I would spend our summer days reading those on the dock and we still buy them for each other for holidays now. So I was SO EXCITED when I heard they were making it into a show. I don’t know how it hasn’t happened sooner.
Normally I don’t like it when things are changed up too much from what I’m used to and love — Riverdale is a lot darker than the original Archies and the characters are VERY loosely based and I’m not sure what to think of this weird, creepy Jughead (or Luke Perry as Mr. Andrews, or Miss Grundy?!) — but I actually loved the first episode. The second one I didn’t like quite as much, but I’m still hoping it’s gonna be good.
Speaking of Netflix, since I’m technically not working right now I’ve enforced a no Netflix before 4pm rule around here so I can try to be productive during the day. Otherwise it’s a slippery slope and I feel like I’ll just be on my couch in my pajamas all day watching all the things. I mean, I do still spend a lot of time on my couch in my pajamas, I’m currently writing this from my couch in my pajamas, BUT I’m trying to focus on productive things like writing. Though, that’s not to say I don’t spend a lot of time messing around on the internet, which is also a slippery slope…
And speaking of writing, I’m covering an event tonight celebrating the Chinese Lunar New Year for a freelance article I’m working on for a travel website, and the event is an EIGHT COURSE DINNER. I feel a little nervous about it, mostly because I won’t know anyone there, but oh man I’m so excited for all that food!!! I’ll report back.
Have a great weekend!
