The Bridge


Ta-da

Today Ken and I finally went to the Golden Gate Bridge.

Part I: Signs

Fatal and Tragic

Info Sign

Ken: "You want to take a picture of this sign? Really??" Yup.

Object or Missile

Issues with this sign:
1) Is a missile not an object?
2) Were they having so many missile problems that it deserved its own listing?

Part II: The View

Fog City

Foggy in SF... go fig.

Ken's View

Part III: The Bridge

Karla Standing

GGB - Ken's Wave

International Orange

In case you ever wanted to know, the bridge is painted in International Orange. It's a color that goes well with the surroundings while remaining (more) visible in fog.

We had a great day, topped off with Ken's first In-N-Out burger. I got fries "animal style" for the first time--they add cheese, spread (kinda like thousand island dressing), and grilled onions... there's a reason they give you a fork with it. Really good.

The last shot is always the best.

Karla and the Tower

The Real Deal


Dim Sum on Clement--yum.

Spread - In Part

You know the place has got to be good when it's packed with Chinese people and you hear Mandarin every where you turn. I tried a bunch of stuff where I didn't even know what it was... and it didn't matter. It was all delicious.

Yan, the Master

Yan here was a tour guide of sorts, telling us what was in each dish. "Who wants chicken feet??"

"Um... we'll pass."

Dim Sum Friends

Leslie, Susan, and Cathy. Totally going to eat here again.

A Golden Week


On Monday I never go to work
On Tuesday I stay at home
On Wednesday I never feel inclined
Work is the last thing on my mind...

- They Might Be Giants


Re-injuring your wrist sucks. But taking off a week with pay to heal it? I can do that. I'll be singing that song to myself all day Monday... yea San Francisco Sick Pay!

I do plan to do some non-wrist things during the week (along with my occupational therapy, natch). Ken and I would like to walk the Golden Gate Bridge (two years and I still have only driven over it... sad) and there are some walking tours I'd like to check out. What I'm looking forward to most, though, is getting enough sleep and keeping a more human-like schedule. No alarms at 3:30 am, no coming home at noon after eight hours of work, exhausted. I get to sleep in until 8, woo! -_^

Have I Ever Mentioned...


...that my boyfriend is an artist?



I'm a bit biased, but I think he's pretty good. ^_^
