Well, I made it back from San Francisco, but I’m sorry to say I took pathetically few photos! I had a great time, though, and got to see lots of people. Unfortunately, those people did not include Rachael or Becca, though I did see Rachael’s flaming hair and had the opportunity to yell at her as I ran by. Yes, so running. The race was fine and relatively fun, if you consider running all squished with 15,000 people when it’s still dark out fun!
What were some other highlights? Well, take a look:
That’s the coffee crunch cake from Yasukochi’s Sweet Stop Bakery in Japantown. We stumbled upon the bakery when we went in search of bentos. It was delicious!
And my first ever mani-pedi was delightful. Megan and I went to Lavande Nail Spa. I was pretty surprised by how busy the place was. I had no idea that nail stuff was so popular. I guess I need to get out more often. Here are my toes:
I also got to meet up with Mrs. H and her gang. Here’s the gang minus Mrs. H, who wandered off to take a photo of a tall Russian ship:
That’s Megan on the left! There is a rather famous person in this photo, but in order to protect her stellar reputation, I don’t think I should identify her (I don’t think her listeners know how silly she can be).
What else? Oh, I discovered a whole new world of Japanese books at Kinokuniya, but I will wait until tomorrow to share those. I will leave you with my big splurge, courtesy of Artfibers:
