Urban girl almanac

Oh my! Could the weather outside possibly be any nicer? We don't get many days like this in San Francisco...I need to get out there and enjoy it!

Anyway, let's get on with this week's urban girl lessons:
  • If Safeway is crowded and you just need cash back, go to the Starbucks counter and buy some mints instead of waiting in line for a register. They can give you cash and there is rarely a crowd.
  • Soy sausage is actually pretty good in pasta.
  • Arriving at the opera at 7:30 will give you just enough time for will call and coat check. You can also rent opera glasses from the coat check room, a must if you are on the balcony.
  • There is a great thai restaurant on 18th street across from the Post Office in Castro.
  • I should try to focus more while playing cards. For some reason I can never really grasp the rules and only win hands by accident.
  • Sleep is so important! I get grumpy and depressed without a good eight hours a night.
  • If you happen to see an ex boyfriend in a public place you have two options: either say "hi" to him right away or don't tell your friends about the sighting and do your best to hide.
  • The Taco Bell Crunch Wrap Supreme is quite possibly one of the best foods invented.
  • If you request nine books from the library, there is more than a slight chance that they will all arrive at once.
Get out there and enjoy this gorgeous weather! Don't miss the Stern Grove Festival this Sunday! Happy Friday!

I was reading your old posts and saw the one about raclette! I had my first raclette meal last year and then we went out and bought a gril

they are really cheap over here (they sell them at Careforre, the French equivelent of Target for like 20 Euros), maybe I should bring you one next time I go to San Fran (but I fear you cant get real raclette cheese in the US). Although you would probably need a hefty voltage converter for it.

Don't doubt the gastronomic creativity of San Franciscans! There is a swiss club in the city that puts on a big raclette bbq in the park each year. Yum!
