on fatigue [Oct. 7th, 2006|04:32 pm]
[Current Mood |tiredtired]

I seriously need to get back in shape. I walked a distance no greater when I used to walk back and forth beween North and South Hill in Ithaca, nearly as much vertically, but I'm pretty wiped out.

Took BART to Powell, and then ascended into Nob Hill and checked out the most excellent views and pretty houses. When all of the for sale signs have TheStreetAddress.com as the website and are listed with Sotheby's, you probably can't afford them.

Descending some combination of Levenworth and Hyde, I was able to catch a good portion of the Red Bull air race acrobatics and some of the fighter plane stuff from Fleet Week with some of the best views one can get of it, which was pretty cool. I wandered around a bit at Fisherman's Wharf, and then seeing the line for the trolley back I decided to walk back around Embarcadero.

I wound up having an early linner-type meal at Aloha Barbecue, which is my latest food crave. I'll probably gain a thousand pounds but it will be so worth it.

Now- the falling over.

I wish I could run around with you. I used to walk all over SF, but my knees just can't hack it anymore.

Just fyi: Cable cars are the old things with the long lines, trolleys are rubber-tired electric buses with two electrical poles that go to two overhead wires, streetcars (often called just "muni" these days) run on tracks and go up to one overhead wire, and buses are . . . buses. :) If you want to ride a cable car and don't care where you go, so much, take BART to Embarcadero and take the car from there up California to the top of Nob Hill. Visit Grace Cathedral if you didn't, last trip, it's truly lovely, and the Dean's mother-in-law is Madeleine L'Engle. (When she was younger and healthier, she'd do lay preaching there when she was in town visiting.) There are lots of queer clergy there, too, yay! I'm not Christian, but used to attend Easter services there for the sheer beauty of it. They have an Easter bonnet contest, and I remember one year the guy sitting in front of me won. He had a huge straw hat with actual grass planted on it, and (pretend) baby chicks and bunnies in the grass.

When we come back from Boston, it'll be Joe's b'day party, and if he hasn't given you info about it yet, I'm allowed to invite you anyhow. Let me know, if you wanna.

Grace Cathedral is right across form where I took the photo of the fountain- it's very pretty. There was a wedding going on.

I have the details for Joe's party from his LJ but I'm also not sure what my transportation and spouse situation will be. Once I get back from NJ next weekend I'll have a better idea, I hope.
