There is a time and a place!
Today is lovely weather, even for San Francisco it's absolutely lovely. I'd say that it's about 65 and sunny. In January that's saying something! I decided to come to work early this morning as I was going to be out of the office for a farewell lunch. What did I receive for coming in an hour early you ask? A nice little treat of a bum, LAYING DOWN ON THE SIDEWALK! I don't mean off to the side sleeping or anything. He was in the MIDDLE of the sidewalk laying sideways with his head propped up on his arm. Not only was the middle of the sidewalk but he was laying across the ENTRANCE to a parking lot. It was too early for that kind of foolishness!! I mean be a little creative if you want to sue somebody and get off the homeless track. Follow the Curly Sue route and pretend to get hit, don't actually lay there and hope for the best.
Anywho, what makes this most annoying was that this past November, San Francisco actually passed a law that makes it ILLEGAL to sit or lie on the streets (I know I live in a city that actually had to make that a law). So basically even if this bum was able to coerce someone to hit him, he won't win any money because he's breaking the law by laying in the middle of the sidewalk. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! The irony!

Happy New Year!!
2011 has started with a bang! Literally, between the birds, fish, and tragic grocery store shootings, I'm pretty excited to be alive less than halfway through January.
San Francisco has already had an earthquake and us sports fans have endured some exciting games. On the homefront, one roommate has moved out and another one is leaving at the end of the month. I wish I could say that I was sad to see them go but it was definitely time for everyone to part ways. I'm excited to reclaim the apartment, do a thorough cleaning, purchase new kitchen items, and basically get our house back to being a warm environment.
Somehow in all the madness, I managed to find a guy! Who knew?? Turns out that I met him last May at a birthday party when we were both engaged in other relationships. Well flash forward 7 months and we were both available. Thank goodness for social networking, otherwise we'd probably just ended up like ships in the night (passing each other only to get shipwrecked in some other awful relationship). Things are going well for now but it's the honeymoon period. We'll check in again within 90 days to see if I'm still giving the thumbs up.
With only 10 days under my belt for 2011, I can tell you that I am looking forward to the following:
participating in a half marathon that I signed up for in support of the American Heart Association on April 30th.
going to the wedding of two dear friends on May 1st.
catching some AWESOME concerts (Janet Jackson and Sade come to mind)!!
taking some romantic weekend trips :-)
FINALLY unpacking (I know, I've been threatening to do it for 4 plus years but this time I mean it).
All in all 2011 is shaping up to be memorable so strap on your seatbelts and follow the blog. It's gonna be an eventful ride!!!
