Nights like tonight are one of the reasons why I took a job in the city. At the last minute, I was able to go to dinner with Anna and Rebecca in North Beach. Afterward, I met Normen for a quick beer in Lower Height. Hooray for city friends!
Normally I wouldn’t have been able to do dinner at the last minute, but I overslept this morning, and drove to work instead of taking Caltrain. I had to pay $15 frickin’ dollars to park at work because there was a stupid football game at AT&T Park, so I am glad that I got some benefit from having my car with me.
Driving home wouldn’t have been a big deal, except that I have a talent for getting into mid-night traffic jams on 101. It took me over 20 minutes to get from that little bit of80 from Octavia to the actual 101 South (that’s maybe a quarter mile). I just got home a few minutes ago, and was greeted by a box of frozen croissants (a Christmas present that I had been expecting). I am thinking that they will make perfect munchies on New Year’s Eve, especially since I am going to try to cut out white flour for a New Year’s resolution.
I really should write a post to catch you all up on my exicting two weeks since I got old, but that will have to wait. I was just feeling especially grateful for my friends tonight and wanted to write about it. Now it is off to bed so I don’t oversleep and miss the train again tomorrow morning.
