We now return to our regularly scheduled program.

Hello, friends! Well, I've arrived back at home all safe and sound. And under the duty free exemption limits for my time away in San Francisco! (Woot.)

In true nerd fashion I have spent the last 2 hours on the Internet, trying to get everything updated so that I can feel whole again. Seriously. I laugh at those chumps on their Blackberries and iPhones who can't bear to be disconnected from their Internet lives for more than an hour... but now I kind of get it. It felt strange and foreign to not be able to pop back to the hotel room and at least update twitter. (Which, by the way, was a huge mistake. Because like 90 million people unfollowed me this weekend! Thanks for the loyalty, a-holes!)

I would like to try to put together some sort of wrap-up post about the trip which I will do sometime during the rest of my glorious week off. (Boo-yah!) But in the meantime, I will share with you a few things I learned about San Francisco:

1) People there are are nice. And they will talk to you. And they will be friendly. Even if they don't know you. And they will come up to you and ASK YOU if you need directions because you obviously look confused! WTF? I am totally rethinking the way I deal with tourists here.

2) Apparently, I am hot there. Lydia claims that I got cat-called when we walked past a bar. Awesome? I can't say because I didn't see if they were cute or not. Odds are NO.

3) Transit there is way more efficient than it is here. There are like 3 trains you can take. And buses. And cable cars. And street cars. And it's cheap. Good times.

4) I will go there again. Lots. Next time I will know better than to try to stay at the hostel. I'll just go straight to a hotel.

5) Apparently when it is your birthday, that is the day when nobody reads your blog. Analytics does not lie! The bloop on the graph was like, way low down. It's okay though. I got a lil' facebook love. Muah!

That's all you kids are getting for now. I'm tired! I've had a big day.

umm.... one thing, half the people that read your blog were probably with you, and everyone else who reads it knew you were away and would not be posting any new material. However Mom did read the blog about the fatty with the gut on the bus and is now telling everyone about it. ha ha.

Who is "everyone"? Oh, lord. I suppose this is one of those "be careful what you wish for" situations? CRAP.
