backseat driver

Everything - including this blog - has taken a backseat lately because I've been meeting up with potential roommates left and right. It's a little stressful knowing that I've signed a lease on a 3 bed (oh, I guess that's new news too) and now need to fill two rooms before rent is due Jan 1. It's been really repetitive ... saying the same things over and over but it's also been kind of fun meeting random people from various walks of life.

In the meantime, Thanksgiving weekend happened. Since I was here, I had a pretty low-key weekend reading and exploring. I walked all the way through Golden Gate Park, to the beach and back. There wasn't a cloud in the sky. So have I convinced you to come visit yet? This is gonna look pretty good when you're climbing over snow dunes to get to work!

On another day, I walked to Japantown to check that out. Not much of interest there, however I have since been back to go to the Kabuki Sundance theater which was really nice. You can choose to sit up in the balcony where you are eye level with the screen, have a little table and can enjoy a glass of wine with your film.

I saw MILK, with Sean Penn, which I HIGHLY recommend you see. I guarantee this thing gets some awards next year. It's about the gay rights struggle in San Francisco (and in the U.S. in general) in the 70s. But it's extrememly relevant still today and whether you're pro or against gay rights, it's a great film.
