The San Francisco Treat: Pt 2!

23 Sep

So, as if my San Francisco trip couldn’t get any more awesome, it totally did!

Friday morning, Twinkie-chan came over and met with Shrinkle, Kevin, Caro, Emi, and I so we could have delicious brunch and bonding times together ❤ THANK YOU Twinkie for trekking all the way out to Oakland to hang out!

We went to Rudys Can’t Fail, (please don’t let the terrifyingly BAD WEBSITE deter you!) a diner joint owned by a member of Green Day (wakka wakka), and also right across from the oh, so glamorous Pixar studios! WHOO PIXAR!

This is by far the most animated I've ever seen Kevin in a photo! haha. And me sporting my homeless man look!

Masters of making a simple photo epically epic. Myself and Twinkie!

I had some of the most epic huevos rancheros there! SO GOOD!

We looked a little LA-ish at the diner because it was totally sunny outside! Shrinkle ponders her brunch ❤

After brunch, Shrinkle and Kevin had to head back home to deal with their dead/dying/stubborn hard drive and do some more Sugarpill work, so the rest of us went to Twinkie’s freshly-moved-into house to visit her cute doggies and bask in the glory of her adorable house!

Twinkie has 2 dogs, Bunny and Bibi! This is Bunny, trying to eat me.

This is Bunny, being cute and not eating any humans.

Okay, Bunny is actually npretty genteel! Here is Twinkie and Bunny. Twinkie's favorite dog is Bibi, though. Maybe Bunny is just acting out because she's sad she's UNLOVED? haha

Wish the lighting wasn't so intense in these! it would make an awesome "About the Author" photo for Twinkie! There's Bibi on the left!

Oh hey! It's Bibi! Bibi has her own Twitter Account. It's mostly about farts. I love it!

Twinkie’s house is SO nice and relaxing! AND CUTE! She and Hairy just moved into this house, and they painted every room a different happy color before they put all of their stuff in. It’s adorable and I want to live there!! I took a zillion photos of Twinkie’s house, but decided to only post one because uh, that’s weird and stalker-ish of me, isn’t it??? haha. Here’s her hallway! Love the little grass buddies! I SHALL STEAL THIS IDEA!

After this, Caro, Emi and I headed back to New People. The original plan was just to drop off Emi so she could spend the night with the DokiDoki staff and assist with translating for them early int he AM the next day. What ACTUALLY happened was a little more epic than that!

As soon as we arrived, Sebastian told us to please stay and attend the VIP opening party as his guests. UHmmm I was decked out in homeless-man-gear, so I was SO NOT FEELING IT! Caro had just bought a Dokidoki dress that was still in her hands, so with a quick run back to her car, a guerrilla super-speed makeup application, and some readjusting of accessories, we ran back to New People in slightly more appropriate gear, haha. Being unprepared for being photographed is the PITSSSS!

The “party” itself was actually pretty low key. It seems like it had the potential to be this big huge thing, but New People FORGOT TO INVITE PEOPLE??? I dunno, maybe getting people out to SF for free food, liquor, and art is harder than it is than in LA? I digress, on to the antics!

Free cupcakes via Mission Minis! They hadn't jumped on the bacon cupcake train, yet, which was a pity! Still delicious though!

There were also free spring rolls... in mysterious flavors! These were so so, but the bacon cheeseburger ones right next to them were pretty amazing!

Yuka and Vani posing with Ken Hamazaki, who brought the "Grateful Red" exhibition to New People's SuperFrog Gallery space on the top floor.

SO! Ken did this" tea ceremony" thing, and invited Yuka and Vani to take part in it. Vani went first... and when she was done, she went over to Yuka and said "THERE'S SHOCHU IN THERE NOT TEA!!" Yuka was super against having to do it, buuutt thakns to peer pressure, she went ahead and did it anyway, and was super sour-faced afterwards. I laughed heartily for a good 30 minutes.

All of us including the 6%Dokidoki staff hightailed it after that and went in search of food! They tossed Vani in our car and they took a taxi to meet us over in the Mission district near where they were staying for the week. We went out and had some deeeelicious Vietnamese food at this little place Sebastian knew about! SO GOOD but the portions were way too intense for me! 😦 Another day, another doggy bag to give to Shrinkle and Kevin! haha!

After that, Sebastian suggested we head to this amazing little Indian ice cream place! It was SO DELICIOUS! I got a Rose water and basil flavored ice cream, that I unfortunately did not get a photo of. Luckily, I DID manage to remember to take funny photos of the rest of the group haha.

DISTURBING PIC OF YUKA. Do you see her tongue on the right? Now try to do that. Have your teeth closed but your tongue sticking out at the same time. It's pretty much impossible which means... SHE'S A WIZZZZZARRRDDD!

Everyone enjoying their ice cream! From front left, clockwise: Emi, Caro, Saru/Trevor, Mika (with her head down and sideways), Yuka, Sebastian (in the hat) and Vani,

After I took that photo, I noticed Saori wasn’t in it (one of Sebastian’s assistants), so I turned arond and noticed her munching away happily on her huge waffle cone of ice cream. I taught her the difference between waffle cone, sugar cone, and cake cone, and then took this awesome photo.

I told Saori to make a face that says "I'm sad & lonely bc I"m not sitting with everyone" HAHA. SADNESS IS FUNNY.

Haha, okay, she wasn’t actually sad, but this photo was pretty epically sad! Saori is one of my favorite girls because she can PLAY ALONG with the joke HAHAH.

Alright! One more day to report on! WOOT WOOT!

Comin’ at’cha soon!
