San Francisco

Isn't really a very friendly place. I've made a few friends here, and most of them, I've lost. Don't know why, really. I'm kind to everyone I know, and I've always been fairly helpful, and I try to look nice, too. And overall, I'm pretty smart. But maybe I'm not generous enough. Or maybe I don't have enough to give, is what I mean.

I wish the world was smaller. I feel really insignificant sometimes.

Remember what the guy from the "Speech Song" said... Live in San Francisco once, but leave before it makes you soft.

I wonder what living in Baltimore makes me?

Baltimore is supposed to be the cool new hip place!

Ing, I think there is magic here in San Francisco. But, I don't think I've ever lived anywhere like this in terms of population. There seems to be a lot of lost/wounded souls and even more flakes than I could ever imagine in one place.

...the lost and wounded I get. The flakes mystify me.

You ARE generous and a great friend. You're doing nothing that would make someone not love and/or respect you.

It is a strange place. Both good and bad. And, I suspect it is place of transition and growth for you.

Transition and growth are tough going, but you're doing it. Hang tight and keep pushing.

I love you so very much. And, I'll be seein' ya tomorrow at 11:30am!

Oh, Baltimore is happening. Unfortunately, it's well on its way to becoming murder capital of the US again... 178 and counting.

In my job (health department), I find myself in the shadiest parts of the city. It's really bad.

But downtown is all about the rich and affluent partying. Down there, there is no credit crunch.

I felt very much like this yesterday. I hope Tuesday is better to you.

Don't blame yourself, blame it on the fog.

I'm glad I had an opportunity to spend a couple semesters in the area, but I don't think I could live there.

A Baltimorian? A John Waters fan? An Oroile? I dunno. . . Certainly not soft, though.

I have heard the same about Baltimore, but isn't it a big, scary city? I'd love to move to a great smallish town with a university, an independent theater or two, and lots of bookstores. . .

San Francisco is a beautiful place, with its cliffs and its beach and its parks, too. But man, there are so many flakes! I find it hard to make real bonds with the people here. I hope it's not just me.

Transition, yes. I've been in transition for a few years now. I'm kind of tired of being in transition, to tell you the truth, but I suppose transitions keep us young inside.

purps:

Oh, I would move to London in a heartbeat if it wasn't for that citizenship stuff.

ren:

Well, I would have to live in that affordable murder-area. And I'm really scared of murderers! Ach!

pants:

I posted on a really bad day, which is kind of a mistake or misrepresentation, I mean. Some days are good, and some days are bad. I find that if I do my work in a coffeeshop instead of at home, it makes all the difference. I have no idea why it should be so, but it is so.

sage:

Holy crap, it's COLD here! Sunny and cold! Deceptive! The fog can be pretty sometimes, but most of the time I prefer it clear and hot.
