Written & Print-Screen'd last night

Perfect fireworks weather, eh? Bf and I had that last year in western New York state, too.
But folks in my neighborhood have been setting them off for about two weeks, so... a few more tonight, for sure.
So yeah, definitely bring some warm stuff to BlogHer. If you're planning to check out the beach or Wharf, a leather jacket would not go amiss. Even on a nice day, it is windy by the water!!!
A few years ago the Burning Man newsletter, the JRS, said, "here in San Francisco, where it is 55 degrees year-round...", and I assure you, they were only partly joking. :P
Certainly this is a good amount warmer than our winter weather, with lows that occasionally dip into the thirties.

Six Random Things About Al_Pal:

1. I love making delicious, stupidly salty food from pantry items. I’m considering a blog to list the recipes.
2. Every one of my fingers, except my right thumb, are double-jointed.
3. When I’m not checking out this group of family-journals, I’m with my "freak family" of Burning Man people, or my "geek family" of Harry Potter fans.
4. In fact, I’m going to a convention for HP fans in Chicago this August...and taking my boyfriend with me.
5. In the past, I went to a few cons with my youngest sister – so this promises to be a different experience!
6. I love living in San Francisco, but am also very glad that I’m in the ‘beach town’ part of the city. It’s quiet and mellow, but I can hop on a light-rail [trolley] and be downtown in 20-40 minutes.

Um...I don't really have six people here, at least not yet. Maybe if I decide to integrate some of my Burner friends into my Auntie life, I can tag... But I'm usually a tag-killer anyhow. I guess that is a seventh random thing!
