niners win

so that was a doozy. i was able to watch the better half of the game with my mom. glad i didn't have to witness how the niners let the saints almost pull out a victory and keep their crazy win streak in the super dome. got this must win, on to ny giants next.

a city full of adult children

having been home for less than 48 hours, i popped down to the city to reunited with old friends in the mission. mode of transport - bart. as i rolled out of the peninsula, i heard a fellow passenger describing sf as "a city full of adult children" in comparison to say new york. really? has sf come to that? back in the spring new york mag published "is san francisco new york?" this made me sad. the sf i grew up in definitely has changed. coming back a handful of times every year, i can see the revolving landscape. it's especially true in the mission where bodegas have given away to bike stores or another coffee spot. heck, i'm no better having drinks at a place called dr teeth and the electric mayhem. i am feeding into this "adult child" description. i mean a bar named after a muppet band. it was a little ridiculous telling folks to meet me there. funnily that bar could have popped up in brooklyn. heck, brooklyn has a dr. who bar. i suppose i'll keep chasing the "old" sf i'm nostalgic for. i ended at my fav burrito spot, the drab but endearing el farolito. i realized as my oldest and dearest friends indulged my late night burrito cravings that sf will change but my friends will not.
