|i'm still anti-LA
||[Dec. 13th, 2007|01:49 pm]
this happens to me everytime i fly back into LA from norcal.|
anyway. this is a belated update.
thursday: flew in, flight was 1/2 hour late. we left on time, so i'm guessing the weather delayed it. it was raining when i got in and it was cold, but not as cold as i espected it. went to zachary's (yay!) with elaine's boys, and later went to crepevine. yum.
friday: woke up early, saw the infamous bart boy. yes, he is cute, but i still think elaine should talk to him. i would've done the deed myself, but he showed up late and had his back to us during the ride. besides, i had to get off after 2 stops. got off in berkeley, roamed around the 4th street area, went to peet's, scrapbook shopped, stopped into papersource....got back on the bart, went into SF, window shopped, trekked to union square and chinatown, had a beard papa (i know, i know, they have one on atlantic)! eventually went down to the civic center, walked around city hall, got in line for not so silent night. met up with elaine, proceeded to get stuck in the pit during paramore and could not escape. needless to say, i was pretty pissed. spoon came on, and although they were awesome (and i adore britt daniels, btw), could not enjoy their set as much as i wanted to because i was really annoyed by the 14-year old girls in next to me, and the really tall people who kept moving in front of me. plus the set was way too short. remind me not to go to a concert with a bunch of high schoolers, btw. angels and airwaves was not very good, plus tom delonge managed to make himself like an self-absorbed idiot. i'm sure elaine is going to update you on that. jimmy eat world pwned. they pretty much blew everyone else away. modest mouse was really nothing to write home about. got back from SF, went to top dog and la burrita at like 1 am - which is the best!
saturday: we were supposed to go to alcatraz, but we woke up late and everything was sold out. we went to the buena vista for brunch - yummy bailey's coffee! :) walked through the pier and te fisherman's wharf area, eventually got a muni day pass and rode some cable cars...which are totally SLOW, but whatever. they are fun. walked down lombard (it was a pain getting back up. god. i'm out of shape). ice skated outdoors at the embarcadero. someone proposed at center ice, and that is my new fantasy. hah. went back to union square for the christmas trees, walked through macy's (which is insane), at dinner at bucca's, got stuck waiting for the F for a long ass time, got off and RAN back to the car because it was FREEZING, damn ocean air.
sunday: woke up late and missed alcatraz...again! this is on top of the to-do list now. went to oakland chinatown for dim sum (yay ghettoness. haha). drove around the berkeley hills (damnit elaine, you need to live there), saw some gorgeous views of the bay, raided kwong's closet, met "ryan"/james. drove to napa, got coffee in the downtown area, then crashed elaine's holiday party.
monday: caught a glimpse of bart boy with messy hair, got to the airport, flew home, have been very anti-LA since.
i find that really, really adore san francisco. i think i end up liking it even more every time i go up there.
pictures are on facebook - i'm too lazy to upload here :X
