Here I Am

Wow it has been a while.

I'm in San Francisco at a business conference. Last night I ate chicken wings at a gay sports bar. They didn't have gay sports on the TV just regular sports but all the wing eaters were gay except me. It was culturally interesting to watch. They absolutely love major league baseball out here.

Most of the guys in this city resemble the nerd on the cover of "For Dummies" books. Dark hair sticking up with bold frame glasses. It looks like an Apple commercial everywhere.

Most of the local women talk and end their sentences on a high note. That gets annoying after a while but they all do it.

I like the new styles in hair. I now wash my hair, drive the jeep to work top off, splash some diet Pepsi on my head and I am stylish and good to go for the rest of the day. I think that is how most of the young folks must be getting that "unique" look.

Everything is so expensive out here. I don't know how people afford to live here.

I expected this place to be a nerd Nirvana but I am paying $12 a day for Internet and can't seem to fine a sustainable mobile signal to complete a call.

It is cold here, really cold. It is like a premature autumn here. The temps are in the lows 60's with a strong breeze and no humidity.

I have always liked this place. It is so different from my usual haunts.

How did you know they were gay by the way they ate their wings.....ohhhhhhhh I can picture it now. Ewwwwwww.

It's in the 60s in San Francisco? What the heck?

Why were you eating chicken wings in a gay bar? Were there no chicken wings to be found anywhere else?

I don't know why my comment is made up of all questions today.

Ahhh! San Fransisco, travel 30 miles in any direction (except west)and the temp will rise 20 degrees. I remember from the Palo Alto area in my youth, you never went to the city without taking a jacket no matter how warm it was.

No I didn't get picked up. I just noticed it was that type of establishment after I sat down and ordered a beer and wings.

The air is cool and refreshing coming in off the bay.

Did they just dip the wing in their mouths, then it would come out completely clean?

P.S. Major league baseball IS gay.:)

I would have thought the bar would have been showing wrestling!
