Ahoye June! The year is nearly halfway complete – how quickly is time flying right now? In two weeks, I’ll be running 13.1 miles; in three, I’ll be getting my tan on (#butnotreallytho) in Tahoe; in six, I’ll be another year older; and in twelve, I’ll be out of this country. Seal (wattup Space Jam) said it best: Time keeps on slippin’ slippin’ slippin’…
As we move into the second phase of 2013, I take pride in knowing that I am on my way to more food, friends, and new experiences. It won’t always be a smooth process, but I’m not wont to thrive in an environment of perfection. In fact, I usually always end up watermarking it somehow, leaving it slightly blemished with my personal touch. It’s not ugly, but it’s not flawless, and most of the time, that’s just fine.
I like to demolish pretty things.
If you ever doubt for one second how much I love ramen, please keep this anecdote in mind of how I drove across the bridge and braved my sickly feverishness to get some…noodles. Ramen Shop in Oakland is easily one of the best bowls of brothy goodness I’ve ever had with a refreshingly enthusiastic and polite staff to match. U don’t have to call, cus Imma be alright tonight with this.
The 14th Annual Guinness Oyster & Music Festival went down in Golden Gate Park. Although I wasn’t a fan of the Dodgers blanket I lounged on (#beatLA), the horseradish-laden shucklers were delicious, if a bit overpriced. The winner though? Guinness ice cream float with honey ice cream and tawny port.
What else is there to do on Sunday than learn swing dancing? After mastering the Mashed Potato (best watch out at the club this weekend), I had my final sweet surge at a Mission favorite, Craftsman & Wolves. Its rotating seasonal desserts and punch of strong espresso keeps me chatty and bright-eyed enough to deliver this to you 🙂
