Vacation!

Short post since I'm already at work. But at the end of the work day I'm officially on vacation! I'm so excited and so ready for it. To get away from it ALL. I'm going to San Francisco, and going for a few days to Sacramento to climb. I'm also meeting a stranger guy for lunch. Story is the radio talk show I listen to on WFMU occasionally does this match up thing where they ask listeners to call in and say where they are going and ask other listeners in that area to call to offer to show them around. I called in. Some weird guy called in to say I should go down to the pier and meet one of the street performers which maybe I might have done if the guy hadn't said he used to be one and he was NOT someone I'd want to meet (no humor, arrogant, etc.). Since there weren't many calls that day, I called back to say if that guy was representative, I'm not sure I'd want to do that. So some semi-normal seeming guy called to say he would show me around - meeting in a public place of course. We exchanged emails. I googled and found his twitter feed which scared me (lots of talk of sex etc.) and told him I wasn't up for sex or sex talk. Eventually he sent a normal sounding email and we talked on the phone, so I figured what the hell. I can't die or get raped over lunch - and I'm a good judge of character, so I'll know when I meet him. Wish me luck! I also have a few days on my own in SF, and my friend B is taking Friday off so we'll get some extra time to hang out (whatever she wants to do - I have NO agenda, except for the rock climbing). My biggest challenge is packing for a week in two carry ons and being in really hot (Sacramento) to cool (SF). ACK! All the best. I'm not promising any blogging, though I might do the Scavenger Hunt tonight. If not, then when I return.

So much for a short post.

Well if anything you might have a very interesting conversation at lunch! I hope he's not as creepy as his Twitter page suggests and that you both have a good time.

Enjoy your vacation, too! I've never been to California.

Have fun! Don't get raped or killed over lunch. I'm off on holiday next week too. Maine. If the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain, where does the rain in Maine fall? I suspect I will find out.

Pamela said...

Tara, yes we will. We did already converse about things to do, and he mentioned a photography exhibit, so that might work.

Squirrel, thanks! Hopefully there will be no rain in Maine... but that might be wishful thinking.

Ohhhh, this sounds like it's going to be fun! Hope this guy doesn't turn out to be a psycho (not that he will, I'm just teasing :)!

Mel said...

Well now--aren't you a daring soul!

A wise soul, but a daring one nonetheless.

Ohhhhh.....I do hope it proves to be a good time.

Good luck in SF... I love it there sooo much. Good luck with the guy too. Sounds like such a fun adventure.

We'll see you when you get back.

Make sure someone knows where you're meeting the guy and his name and vital info. But mostly, have a kick-ass time!
