anchors away

28 dec.

on tues 23rd, me and the parents went to Anchor&Hope.

borught to you by the same people who brought you Town Hall, and Salt House, it’s a must-eat in SF.

the yelpers tell me i need to get the sea urchin.  the concierges tell me i need to get the sea urchin.  everybody i talk to tells me that i need to get the sea urchin.

and what did i do?

i got the sea urchin.

and you know what?  it tasted like crab/lobster. swimming in remoulade and potato.  it wasn’t bad.  but i don’t understand what the hell everyone was yelping about.

yeah, it looked weird. but it tasted like nothing. here’s a pic from my phone.

we also had the “fish fries with eyes”.  whole smelts with remoulade.  they tasted like…  fried anything.

the parents split the paella. kick ass.

i had a fancy version of fish n chips.  the fish was light, and crispy, not the least bit greasy.  cool.

we also had a side of brussel sprouts. WAY WAY WAY too salty. even for me, and i’m a salt fiend!

wed dec17, was HomeSlice’s bday. and this year, she decided that we were all gonna volunteer at the SF Food Bank. it was fun, and fulfilling, and hard work, and touching all at the same time. such a sense of accomplishment when you see how much you have packed/sorted/moved/etc.

afterwards, we went to Pazzia.
excellent pizza in SoMA.

good times

mom & dad arrived at SFO this morning.
didn’t have much time with them. they’re off in hercules at their friend’s house. i switched shifts with Jin. so i’m working mid-shift, and she’s working night. that means i can go out to dinner with them tomorrow. i think it’s gonna be at Anchor & Hope. or maybe Laiola. or LaMar. or R&G Lounge. so many restaurants. and limited time.

how do you say “gypsy” in french?

19 dec friday.

i saw a silly musical last night.  Zanna Don’t!  it’s about Heartsville High, and Zanna, played by a teeny tiny latino young man wearing pink pants and white sleeveless tee, who with, a wave of  his magic wand, helps kids fall in love. oh, and the entire HS and the entire society is gay.  yep. he helps boys fall in love with boys and girls fall in love with girls.

it was quite entertaining, although a bit amateur-ish.

but still, i liked it.

.

PS>  STFU!  i just looked it up online.  i had no idea that it was an off-broadway musical! starring none other than jai rodriguez, one of the queer eyes!

cleaning out my closet

wed. 17 december

ive been cleaning out my closet for the past few days.  it’s a slow process.  i’ve found that i have lots and lots and lots and lots of clothes that i don’t wear, but i still love them.  i should have donated them to goodwill long long ago.

here i sit, sifting through bales of very fashionable, very expensive (had i bought them new) clothing.

i’ve got a (growing) pile for goodwill.

and i’ve got a (growing) pile for Crossroads/Buffalo (s)Exchange.

and i’ve also got that damn eminem song in my head.  how early 2000.

brrrrrr !!!
