I walked out of my apartment and headed down Valencia Street towards my polling place, only to realize that I'd be late for a meeting at work if I voted now. If I hadn't walked down Valencia though, I wouldn't have seen this parking space-turned-temporary street art installation.
At lunch, I walked over to the grand opening of Local Mission Market at 23rd & Harrison, the latest in the "local" Mission empire (see also Local's Corner and Local: Mission Eatery, but not Local Edition, which is downtown). Nothing suitable to grab for lunch, but I'll check back in a week or so to see what else they add.
As I left work, HBO's Looking was filming at Punjab again. What is their obsession with our local cheap Chinese joint? I don't care, I just want to meet Jonathan Groff and Russell Tovey. How hard can that be?
Looks like there might be some life left in this thing after all!
Like so many blogs, I neglected this one when life got busy. I didn't feel good about posting once Posterous was acquired by Twitter. Despite the assurances that the service would keep running, I figured these were pie crust promises, and it was time to start looking for somewhere else to keep the written part of my digital life.
Sure enough, less than a year after that (and still no replacement found), I got a real shutdown deadline. Not nearly as scary or important as the recent federal government shutdown. In my case, though, procrastination paid off and Posthaven launched in time to save the day.
Looking through the archives, I posted a lot of photos and few random videos and other things from around the web. It may still be about food (half of those links were chicken-related) and other silly stuff, but I'm also hoping to sprinkle in a few honest-to-God blog posts with more than a few sentences and at least one or two opinions.
I'll leave you with a cartoon made with the suddenly popular Bitstrips, which is spreading among my friends on Facebook. In a really unscientific sampling, it seems to be spreading from East Coast to West, unlike many other tech trends.
Welcome to the inside of my brain.
Some photos from walking around yesterday on one of the best weekends I've had in SF!
This DOMA thing makes me nervous. If gay marriage passes soon, I'm going to be a failure instead of a victim.— Chris Kelly (@imchriskelly) February 23, 2011
