I am often asked about my screen name. I use it everywhere, and it's my only alias. A wise man once gave me some good advice: Expect much out of myself, the people around me, and of the life I live. Or, expect little. I figured the choice was pretty clear.

They say Summer ends today. I say it ended on Friday night when the first rain hit SF. So, while commuters were sacrificing their weekend getaway plans to slick roads and fender-benders, I scrambled to the top of Twin Peaks to watch the clouds roll in. I figured I had time before heading out to Hoa's b-day party.
I had never seen SF under this kind of lighting. Here are some decent shots from the phone (brushed up with Picassa).
Looking down into Diamond Heights
My favorite part of the run. Coming down the mountain, crossing the ped bridge over Portola.
Looking up the hill from the ped bridge.
From the spiral ramp on the east end of the ped bridge.
Out with the old, in with the new. Muni is replacing their diesel buses with Hybrids.

On the 15th, a bunch of us headed out to see some good tunes on Treasure Island. As always, the views were gorgeous, and even more so due to the day's perfect weather. Getting there brought back memories of rehearsing with the Renegades.
The day was also an opportunity to put my new little Sony phone/camera/walkman/etc to some good use.

A big ferris wheel overlooking the stages and the bay. Very cool.
