Was far too tired to write enough yesterday. I just wanted to mention Painter Dave, some guy we met in Berkeley at a rather cool bar where everyone was absolutely wasted by 5 in the afternoon. Mikey also made an acquaintance in the form of Cory, who had said she lived on her own with a bunch of cats, but in actual fact has a husband and rang Mikey yesterday whilst we were on the Bart (yes, you can get signal on their underground) asking him if he was interested in 'meeting up' with her and her man......SWINGERS!!!
Just managed to book myself a few more nights here at the Adelaide Hostel, which is marvelous, really nice/friendly hostel. I would recommend it to anyone visiting San Francisco. Staff are really helpful and there's wireless pretty much everywhere. There are also games and books in the lounge area (including a particular book , explaining the treatment of a rectal prolapse in your pet cat....standard)!
I've decided I really want to get myself an SLR camera here. Otis managed to find a pentax K100 with an added zoom lense and a case and red filter for like $100, Bargain, so jealous. Finally managed to upload my photos from the past week. So many from Outside Lands festival, which was SO goood. Beruit were awesome then the rest was a bit of a blur, but a blur that i know i enjoyed. Becca and I managed to befriend some guy with weed, which i completely forgot about until becca told me the next day. Best thing tho were the free blankets, so appreciated when waiting at the bus stop at the end of the festival. I may have looked like an earthquake evacuee but I was warm! Lets not lie, we're all waiting for that BIG earthquake, which us SFSU students are now fully equipped for....canned food, gallons of water and a flashlight, that's what we have been told to do the first thing we find a house. We were also told a gruesome tale of this girl a few years ago who got sliced in half by a car that had been hit by another car on the freeway just outside our uni, highlighting the importance of getting the right health insurance, because without evacuation protection, her remains would not have been able to have been sent home to her family! Way to bring down the mood of a generally humorous and upbeat orientation talk. Just about to head off to a free lunch on campus, never turn down free food, especially when ur living out of a suitcase in a hostel for the foreseeable future.
