Last night was Carly’s Birthday Party and we went to Mama Palma’s and ate a lot of pizzas and brought a lot of wines and the bill was $13 per person. I know, right?

Then we went to the Moshulu which is a boat on the waterfront and the DJ was spinning MMP v BBG (Michael Madonna Prince vs. Britney Beyonce [Lady] GaGa).

Here is a sample:

Here is a photo of us before we got on the boat.

Grad school is the boringest. More photos here.

Peter, do the dorm supervisors let you play music at DCC?

Great News

The San Francisco Planning Department forgot to take my email off their office-wide email list. Today I got an email about the upcoming office carpet cleaning. It’s like I’m still part of the team.

Here’s a song.

Making Friends

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

Yesterday my friend Ariane texted me: You are cordially invited to dinner at 6:30pm. I had no idea what this entailed and she, not one for details, provided me with little else. So I biked over at 6:30pm and walked into a kitchen filled with crates of nectarines, apricots, plumquots, and shrimp. Her father was blending peaches and liquor to make bellinis. Then an older couple walked in and the woman said Hi I’m Katherine and the man said Hi I’m John Kriken and I thought, that name sounds familiar. JohnKriken JohnKriken. Ah. yes. I was reading his book in the bookstore last week. I told him I was planning student and then I sat next to him at dinner and he showed me his iPhone and how to use Shazaam to get the name of the musical interlude songs on This American Life.

Happy. The end.

I biked 40 miles

Sunday, June 13th, 2010

Apparently when you bike 22.5 miles one way you have to come back. This thought didn’t cross my mind when my friend Ariane said Hi wants to bike 22.5 miles to Fairfax, CA? and I said Do I!?! Below is a photo of me on the ferry ride back which was supposed to make lives easier but I would argue no, it put us at the ferry building which is far and downhill from important things like my apartment. Shits elevated.  Are swear words offensive?

Uncle Paul I don’t think you read this but I thought about you on the ride because one time last month we went tandem riding which was great and three years ago we rode bikes in Italy except that time was not so great because I panicked and quit and got in the car with my mom who was trailing us in case one of us quit and wanted to get in the car and weep quietly and talk about feelings. The point is I kept up the whole ride today and I even biked up this really big hill at the very end of our 40 miles and everyone was very impressed because I am a fixed-gear bike computer commuter and I just went from being a sprinter to a marathon runner and I think I won. Again, the point is, Uncle Paul I thought of you when I wanted to quit and I didn’t quit and I feel great. Mom if you were here I would have met you at home and we could talk about feelings after I didn’t quit. Everybody wins.

jsk called

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

This is not a joke. The new York city DOT just called and asked if I wanted a paid summer internship working on their bicycling program. I yelled at them for being so late and they said sorry and I said apology accepted call me next year k? And they said k and then it was over. What’s next? Jan Gehl is going to send me a postcard that says GREETINGS from Copenhagen want to help us build cycle tracks???

Ten Months

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Ten months. That is how long my computer has given me an error message when I try to update its software and I say why computer must you be so stubborn I am trying to HELP you and the computer says Error no sorry I do not like the change. It it now two days before I leave for the California and I bring my computer to the computer doctor and the doctor says what is the problem and I say let me show you and I go to update the software and my computer and the computer says, Ok sounds good to me, and updates the software.  WTF. TEN MONTHS and you wait until now to make me look like a fool in front of the computer doctor I should GROUND you for this. Instead, I will blog.

PS. What is the difference between the categories Really? and WTF?

Lauren go to bed

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

Lauren has been awake for 24 hours writing a paper about housing. Apparently it’s 20 pages single spaced. What do you say for 20 single spaced pages about housing?  More more more more more? Smaller smaller smaller smaller?  Repeat?  I don’t know, I guess if someone said can you write us a paper about bike lanes it would be a billion pages. Lauren please provide us with a short summary in the comment section below. Thank you.

See Sarah’s graduation photos here and my DC field trip photos (boring photos of trees on the street) here.
