She’s Baaack

May 21st, 2005

A big round of applause for MrLemurBoy for filling in for me while I was away. Silent may be right – A blog of his own may indeed be in order. After all, he’s a very unique individual and the blogging community always benefits from diversity. Thanks, Ziggy… You rule!

San Francisco wasn’t bad. I managed to have fun despite the fact that I felt antisocial around the conference attendees. Conversely, I hit it off fabulously with the locals. Maybe I’ll write about my adventures next week, but for now here’s an overview of what I learned:

1. People from SF think they hate people from LA but in fact they are irresistibly attracted to us, as evidenced by the fact that I got hit on more times in five minutes in SF than in a week in LA.

2. Then again, maybe it’s just that women who leave maps to an unfamiliar city on their desk back at the office, and in turn roam around with a desperately lost “please help me” look are irresistible to all men, regardless of their sexual preference.

3. Homeless people in SF are some of the coolest, most articulate people you’ll ever meet. Seven out of ten are intelligent enough to develop unique marketing gimmicks to increase their panhandling payouts. I learned more from them than the conference.

4. Business conferences are lame and yet completely necessary. I came up with pages of ideas, none of which were related to any of the material presented, yet somehow I don’t believe those thoughts would have been precipitated by any other means.

5. Shopping in SF is the PWN! They have over three times the inventory compared to the same stores in SoCal. For every item we have, they have ten we never see, and the ones we do have come in five other colors up there. It’s sick! I’m already planning my next visit.

6. Never walk into a Marc Jacobs boutique… Naughty, naughty!

    Is that a lemur for a pic?

    Were you wearing your shirt that said you loved geeks again? Usually that helps draw some friendly attention.

    Thanks! Yes, that’s a lemur. And no, I didn’t wear the shirt 🙂

    I would love to visit San Francisco. It’s on my list. Welcome back.
