The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger. Cafe Du Nord. San Francisco. California. 1.25.2011.

Apparently I am into seeing models that sing at Cafe Du Nord. So in case you didn't already know, Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger is Sean Lennon and Charlotte Muhl Kemp. It's nice to see them in the beginning of their tour. Go Lincoln Center Mark.


Happy Happy Guy. San Francisco. California. 1.23.2011.

My friend Todd says that there are a lot of great strange characters in San Francisco. Here is a fine example. He's at this every Sunday for at least the 10 years I've lived in San Francisco. He waves at people walking by, and says, "Happy. Happy. You have wonderful Daddy and Mommy," on repeat all day. But then if you read his signs it's a lot less cheerful. I've always been fascinated by the juxtaposition of his spoken words versus his printed words. I also love that he does this in front of the painted American flag wall always. Once I rode the bus with him on it. He's quite a caricature and people just naturally are drawn to him to strike up conversations. I cannot remember the conversation, but I do recall him saying, "I have to make pee pee."

SFMOMA. San Francisco. California. 1.22.2011.

Oakland. California. 1.15.2011.

Who knew? Oakland is the home of Ebonics and good hiking? Did you know that my high school was the one that tried to make Ebonics an official vernacular the year after I graduated?



Friday. San Francisco. California. 1.7.2011.

The last time I saw Phil, we talked about brain freezes. He told me the next time I get one, I can get rid of it by touching my tongue to the top of my mouth. It worked. Insomnia awaits.
