Same old same old

I was talking to a friend last week who was telling me how funny it is to talk to tourists in San Francisco. “They get so excited about taking the bus!” She was incredulous!

I told her the bus was so fun when I moved here that I even wrote a blog post about it!

It’s funny thinking back to those days, when everything was new. The fog, the bay, the colourful vistas, the old crumbling buildings, the hipsters, the bicycles, the flowers, the sailboats, the hills. I still love it here, but it’s different now. I’m used to it.

I think part of the reason I haven’t been blogging as much is that the things that get me excited these days aren’t as newsworthy. For example, I discovered freeze dried blueberries at Trader Joe’s. Yes, first of all, I started shopping at Trader Joe’s. I don’t buy the tragic containerized produce there, but I do buy dry and packaged stuff there. The Israeli couscous is awesome. Anyway, freeze dried berries on cereal is just about the most delicious thing ever. So I was obsessed with eating that for a while. The other issue is just that I have a normal life here now which keeps me busy with things and prevents me from doing some of the “I’m going to go check this out” type stuff I used to do during the first year. I’m busy enough that when I have nothing to do, I take advantage of that and take a nap!
