Scary things and Saturdays are the new awesome

So I get home from work on Friday night and my neighborhood was crawling with cops, robbers, PG&E trucks, angry neighborhood residents and honking cars. I was so worried about my houseguests! Turns out having spent the day shopping on Haight Street, they were doing just fine, but the power situation was not so fine. Crazy neighbor lady informed us that a transformer had exploded right outside our building and power would probably be off all night. Great. In the battle of SF vs. NYC, this puts SF at a slight disadvantage.

Thank heavens Emily Cox came and picked us up and took us to Pluto's for dinner.

Emily and Karisa decided to go see the Elected at Bottom of the Hill. When they dropped us off it was still dark and PG&E was working on the exploded transformer. Suddenly my neighborhood looked like a fancy movie set! Di and Karisa were like "yawn...bright lights and movie sets happen all the time in NYC."

Di and I took advantage of the power outage and had girl talk by candlelight. Girl talk by candlelight started at 10pm. The next thing that happens in girl talk by candlelight is you both fall asleep mid-conversation at 10:30pm. Then I woke up at midnight and looked out the window and saw PG&E had moved down the street. Hello n-judah. Hello spikes that keep the birds off our ledge.

Then Di and I went to sleep in our beds but I woke up again at 1:00am when Karisa got home and look how PG&E had moved again!

Final update: power was restored to our block at 2am and all is well.

Saturday morning Di, Karisa and I headed to Dolci Beauty Lounge for manicures and pedicures.

Next we met up with Cameron and rode the train to 24th & Mission.

La Taqueria has the best tacos and quesadillas in town for sure but not the best burritos. Those will happen later. Di sold her soul for the most delicious carne asada taco in San Francisco.

In honor of Rebecca (who ditched us for San Diego) we rode BART downtown. Cam and Di were playing games the whole time.

We stopped at many historic landmarks including Forever 21.

We stood in Union Square

and sat in the park across the street from the Marina Safeway.

Self-portratis are the new awesome.

(Cameron's self-portrait would go right here if it was appropriate for posting.)

There were other things that went on in that park that were not appropriate for posting. But know they happened. And they were so so funny.

    i have also sold my soul, given a few quarts of blood, and pawned some of my roommate's jewelry, all for a la taqueria taco.

    so worth it. don't worry di - souls are totally overrated.

    Di, you might have sold your soul but remember how Cameron took his shirt off?

    Now that I think about it you two are perfect for each other. You should go to prom!

    Also, I just got one of the word verifications wrong.

    SF looks OK I guess. If you like big cities full of fun. I get to see lots of half naked surfers on any given day though. So that's kind of cool.
