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!
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’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!
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.
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.
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!
