Urban Girl Alamanac: Holiday week, holiday weekend

Urban Girl Alamanac: Holiday week, holiday weekend

It was kind of a slow week here in San Francisco. There was supposed to be a heatwave, but temperatures stayed pretty mild. I made pickles. I partied. I shopped online. It was a good time. Here’s what I learned:

  • Pickled carrots are super easy to make and really delicious.
  • Bouldering is a hard workout and one likely to render your arms useless for a few days.
  • I’m really out of practice when it comes to dressing for warm weather.
  • I’ve lost four pounds these last few weeks…time to get some more cheeze-its.
  • Historic resorts are the best resorts.
  • It is a very good thing to have friends who live in apartment buildings with rooftop views of the bay.
  • Frenette (an obscure Italian digestive liqueur drunk mostly in SF) tastes bad and will give you a headache.
  • Lessons learned by watching Real Window: Spend more money on better quality clothes. Less money at H&M. Spy on your neighbors.
  • Paul Simon rocks.

Rob and I have a very big weekend ahead. We’re rock climbing tonight with Matt. Kayaking tomorrow with Jordan and Paul and shooting my cousin’s engagement photos in the afternoon. Sunday will be a long tandem bike ride around the city culminating with Tour de France watching at a bike cafe. Whew! I’m hoping to squeeze a few lazy naps in there too.

    wow, im out of it, i forgot that the tour is starting already! it seems so odd that they start in London.
    I had to go check the map, they don’t go quite as close to us this year but will pass a town about 20 minutes away, and on a Saturday. It would be near the end of a mountain stage, hmm, maybe it is worth the trip.

    It’s actually spelled Fernet and the mint version is much better (though that’s not saying much, I know). I find that a splash is great for a stomachache mixed with a lot of gingerale 🙂
