i really dont understand tumblr.  (does that make me an old person?)
it seems that everyone uses it to post random/weird/ironic pics. but i don’t understand why someone would want to share such things. am i missing something?

no, we’re not talking elective plastic surgery to extract fat from your body. for that, see: liposuction.

we’re talking Li Po, everyone’s favorite chinese dive bar in SF.

i hadn’t seen aries in a while, and we were both working the PM shift. so we met up after work.

sidebar: has anyone else noticed that drinks have suddenly become way more expensive at this place? and what’s with the cocktail menu?

apparently, there’s a nightclub/dancefloor downstairs, although i’ve never been.  it was closed that night, and neither aries nor i particularly wanted to dance.

one or two drinks turned into four, and soon it was well past 1am, and we found our way to my canh (i think that’s what it’s called) for some most excellent pho. i’ve never order the same thing there (all three times that i’ve been) and this time was no different.

this time, it was a combo seafood rice plate of sorts.

when it arrived, i was slightly disappointed at first, but quickly realized the bounty of sauces available to me: fish sauce; sri racha; hot pepper flake/red sauce; hoisin…  **yummers** the possibilities were endless!

we chowed down. and overall, nothing much to report. but it was totes fun to hang out with a friend and not be a complete, bumbling, stumbling,  drunk idiot.

good times!

i don’t feel like writing anything. eventually, i will.so for now, this.

in an interesting turn of events, i was off last night (friday). as much as i enjoy being off in the middle of the week, it’s nice to NOT have to deal with all the friday night drama-rama at the concierge desk. it’s nice to have a *little* bit of seniority.

so last night i did my laundry. terribly exciting, i know!

i could tell you about how i spent my day yesterday–at Buffalo (s)Exchange in the Mission, then pedaled around a little, returned a bicycle to Aries, and then hung out with Crazy Czech.

…but i wont. because i really don’t feel like writing…

thurs 22 sept 2011.



me and crazyczech decided to go out to the castro last night. just because.

Badlands was boring as fuck, so we went to Booty Call Wednesdays at QBar.

such an attractive clientele, and fun fun fun! well worth the $3 cover.

ugh. and i’m still hung over.

monday 11 april 2011.

it’s busy at the hotel tonight.  there’s some convention in town. and lots of stupid-ass people, with stupid ass problems that are not necessarily concierge-related, but they call me to help them anyway: 

– i’m at pier 40, and i can’t get a cab.

– your wireless is slow.

– i lost my phone in a cab. can you call the cab company and have the driver bring it here?  why aren’t they calling me back? i need that phone!

– where can we eat that’s good? we’ll eat anything. 
no, we don’t want sushi.
no, we’re vegetarian.
no, we don’t want italian
no, we don’t want american.
etc. etc. etc.

in other news, i’m working at the Other Hotel tomorrow in the am, because Lana is on vay-cay.

in other, other news, except for the stupid-ass people, i kind of enjoy the busy-ness of it here.  the DJ is pumpin!

and in other, other, other news, i’m going to the ‘hoe again on wednesday! good times!

geminis twin?

Posted in music with tags , , on Saturday 9 April, 2011 by the Notorious O.S.C.

sat 9 april, 2011

not, it’s not gemini’s twin, it’s actually twin sister.

but if you remember the SNL skit, you’ll know what i’m talking about.

anyway, twin sister is playing tonite at the hotel. it’s hipster central in the lobby tonite. i can’t even count how many ironic moustaches i’ve seen already, and the show doesn’t start for another hour.

i don’t know who the hell twin sister is, but thanks to the power of google and youtube, i’m totally well-versed. they’re kinda ethereal-sounding. reminiscent of the bands from 4AD from the early 90s:  cocteau twins, dead can dance, this mortal coil, throwing muses, his name is alive.  (note: before all of you music geeks lash out at me, here’s my disclaimer: i’m not sure if the aforementioned bands were actually on 4AD, so don’t get all crazy on me.)

i don’t really know how to describe their music, but it’s sorta like unicorns and stars and rainbows and waterfalls and “material girl” era madonna, with a backdrop of raindrops and flashdance and chimes, and lots of airy, breathless chanting, and charades. weird.

have a look/listen:
