weekend in san francisco

Well, it's high time I mentioned I've been dating this girl Adrienne for about 3 weeks now, and things are going really awesome between us. We spent every day this week together except Thursday.

Friday night, she and I and my dear friend Pat from New York went to a party in San Francisco thrown by the lovely and talented zille. Lots of interesting people there--mostly artists and pornographers, between which there is often no clear line. ;) We didn't know many people, but felt right at home.

We left the party close to 4am, crashed at pbrane & zulfikar_ii's place, slept in a bit, and then woke up and participated in pbrane's long awaited all-day two-board Diplomacy match. Every room of their house is gorgeous, and about 6000 square feet in all; I think it's now my dream house to live in! And very apropos for a diplomacy gathering.

There were 12 people in on the games, 2 of the more skilled players playing both boards simultaneously. Adrienne and I were both eliminated fairly quickly, but neither of us have much experience so we didn't feel too bad. (One guy there has been playing for about 40 years, and is the originator of more than one of the "classic openings" known to most Diplomacy experts. We took a little jaunt in the evening down to City Lights Bookstore (where Jack Kerouac and friends used to hang out in the days of the beat poets) and found some cool books. Took a 3-hour nap, then drove back in the middle of the night dropping pbrane off in San Jose so he could fly to Seattle this morning. Got back to Santa Cruz at an ungodly hour, completing our fun-filled weekend in San Francisco which seemed way longer than it was. Very pleasant!
