|10:42 pm - San Francisco in a Day|
If you knew me back in my Rice days, you may remember Katie. She played a very important role in my life, sometimes without even knowing it. For instance, she was the first person to introduce me to Farscape. And she also showed me my first anime. Of course, I didn't really get into either of those things until years later.
Katie and I were very good friends at Rice, and we managed to keep in touch, thankfully. She was a year behind me, so I probably saw her on my visit back for Pirates in 2004, but then it was all Internet and the occasional phone call. She got a job she loved, married a Ryan she loved, and bought a house she loved. She's living the dream! She even makes her own curtains.
Katie & Ryan came across some cheap flights from Houston to San Francisco and planned a vacation the first weekend of October. She gave me a heads up, and I took the day off work on Friday to hang with them. I asked her what they wanted to do, and they had no real plans. Katie had never been to San Francisco, and Ryan had only been there for a conference and not seen much of the city. They wanted a local to show them around, and they were putting their day completely in my hands. They trusted me! It was a big responsibility.
I'm sure you all know where we started our day.
