Attended the Castro Street Fair: http://www.castrostreetfair.org/.

It seemed oh so tame in comparison to the Folsom street fair, although this time, I didn't get hit on (:D Yay, it's nice to get hit on once in a while, especially when both sides are joking.) by the donation sticker dude. Although the question of "Where do you want me to stick it?" always comes up. Hehehehe.

Mmm, saw some cheerleading, dancing. Had a nice lunch made of maize bread, beans, pork, cheese, with a side of odd fries that weren't made of potato. Got yet another free condom and lube sample along with a straw hat (the hat I gave away to a street artist that had a sign out for donations, but no hat to put it in). Also got a container of jelly beans from gay.com. Mmmm. Oh, also saw people giving lessons on breaking boards. It was surprising that people could be taught to break boards without real training. I almost wonder if the black belts holding said board were exerting extra force on the boards to help them break? I don't know, I didn't try.

Also went to the CupcakeCamp: http://cupcakecamp.org/

It was, as the site put it, a delicious success. There were yummy cupcakes, I talked to people standing in line in front and behind me. Heard a story of an awesome April Fools joke of cupcakes being made out of meat (to look like chocolate cake) and potatoes dyed pink (as frosting). I shall have to do this myself, someday.

There were some awesome cupcakes too - I saw some baked into an ice cream waffle cup, an ice cream cone, ones that looked like cheeseburgers (seriously, I swear. I have pictures!), ones made from avocado (or with avocado), and ones with bacon.


Mmm, and tomorrow? Microsoft New Efficiency Live Launch. Need to get there at 7:30 AM. Urrrgh. Oh well, free copy of Windows 7.

Except by the time I made my way to the park, it was already nearing 2 PM. I saw a good number of bikers, but I wasn't sure if they were there for the sunday fun or just there because it's a nice place to bike.

My path:Google Maps

According to my nifty new bike computer ($10 from amazon. I bike an average of 10 mph, although on flat ground, I typically go at about 15 mph. Hills will slow me down to 5-8 mph - like the one on Fell St - that was unhappy to bike up. I had to drop down to my lowest gear and pedal like a madman.) Oddly, google maps says my route was only 14 miles, while the bike computer clocked about 18. I mean, I probably did sidetrack here and there, but I don't think that added 4 miles. My wheel measurements might be wrong... :\

Anyways, yay, found the golden gate park. Saw the Pacific ocean - there's a nice beach there, much cleaner looking than the one at Santa Cruz. Less people too.

Mmm, 5 star hotel. =^^= Or, well, whatever, it has internet, and that's all that's important. Free for only the first day, but hey, I'm only here for the night, so that's not a problem.

It's just 10:40 here. But 1 AM at home.

Uh... AirTran, the airline I rode, was pretty good. Their flight attendants were pretty active, with at least one traveling down the aisle once every 30 minutes or so to ask if people wanted water or to offer cookies. XM Radio was spiffy.

San Francisco's airport (SFO) is pretty awesome. At least the trams that circle the airport. They kinda remind me of the (kinda) new trams in Taiwan.

It's cold here. Like... 60ยบ. O.o I'm in shorts and a t-shirt. ::makes a face:: Thanks goodness my more formal stuff is long sleeved.

Rode the BART from the airport to the hotel, their equivalent of our metro. But not as new looking. Announcements of doors closing, and arrivals at stops were announced by the driver. And occasionally couldn't be heard.

Uh. I'm going to bed. I'm tired, despite sleeping lots on the plane.

--------------------------------
Check in, maybe wander around San Francisco a tad bit. Anyone got places I should try to visit? Keep in mind I'm arriving at 8:40 PM~ so most places might be closed already.

Sleep the night at the Courtyard Downtown (299 2nd St).

Check out, head on over to SixApart's office (548 4th Street) around 10. If I manage to wake up earlier, there'll be the option of wandering around a bit.

That'll give us 12 hours to talk, more or less. Minus lunch and dinner. Although I don't think we'll need 12 hours~ so I think I'll still have time left over to wander a bit. And since transportation back to the airport could take 30-60 minutes, I should probably plan to be heading back to the airport around 8:30 or so. Granted, I'm paranoid, so the numbers may seem silly. ::doesn't want to run for planes again though...::

God bless Google Earth. :D Nothing like doing a bit of bird's-eye sight-seeing before wandering out there.
