Foggy San Francisco

So I spent the afternoon on Berkeley kid-sitting (which is a whole 'nother story), and was driving back on the Bay Bridge at about 9:15 went I got the craziest urge to eats tons of Chinese food. There was no traffic and for once I liked the song on the radio (iPod is on vacation....), so I'm singing along in a good mood, until I want to eat dumplings or stir-fry or whatever so badly it makes me crazy. Then I rolled down my window (did I mention the balmy 60 degrees after dark in February factor?), and realized that it was because the city of San Francisco really smells like dim sum. After years of people's jokes about it, I realized that actually, they have a point. San Fran is covered in a haze of dim sum steam. I am gonna get me some today.

Here is my comment. Now that you have a job, will you still have time to write about fog in this blog? Or will the smog created by a job completely rob you of the...hmmm...time to go get more coffee and make breakfast. Ah, time to be a slob! Yah, better get that coffee. Love you Caitlin. Don't tell anyone you know me. Rock and roll.

So, Caitlin, is it really true that anyone other than Mr. Donuts thinks that SanFrancisco smells like dim sum??

Mr. Donuts? THE Mr. Donuts? I made my eggs in a Mr. Donuts pan all the way from Nippon on Saturday! Mr. Donuts thinks San Francisco smells like dim sum? I wonder what Mr. Donuts thinks Philadelphia thinks like...

Caitlin - are you reading these comments? Is anyone reading these comments? Remember - tell no one you know me.
