A little over 24 hours in...








There are times in my life that I really wish I had a photographic memory so I could recall every sentence uttered and every scenario that played out. I wish I could describe in great detail what I've seen so far in San Francisco.
I wish I could tell you what the vast amount of homeless men looked like when I got off the public transportation system in the downtown area.
I wish I could tell you exactly what words were said by the 2 men that were in cardboard boxes on the side walk as I walked by.
I wish I could tell you how beautiful the snow capped mountains were that I saw when I flew over them.
I wish I could detail exactly how proud I am of myself that I got up at 6 am to pay $12 to workout in the hotel gym.
I wish I could let everyone know how awkward I feel when I say I'm a vegetarian even though it's only been 29 days.
I wish I could explain why the word octopus makes me want to giggle like a little girl.
I wish I could let you smell the wonderful bath and beauty products that I got at Lush and how proud i am that i only spent $32.
Lastly, I wish I could explain how much fun I'm having and how happy I am that i choose to come here barely knowing anyone.

I'm so glad you're having a good time. It looks like you are certainly enjoying yourself!

As for the $12.00 to work out at a hotel? Wow. That IS something to be proud of. I wouldn't go if they paid ME the $12.00!!!

Those are GREAT pictures - and the pink card case and that ring (the flickr pics) - COVET! That ring - where'd you get it!

Anywho - the word "octopus" makes me giggle too. The word that sets me off is "business", and I hear THAT word too many times a day :)
