September 5, 2009


The recent cooler weather has me lusting for fall again, but today it was summer-hot and I'm headed to my beach for a few days so I've got summer on the brain. September is a difficult time to pack for, since it is warm during the day but really cool at the beach at night. This is unlike the city where the nighttime temperature doesn't vary that much from the daytime. So I'm packing my summer sandals and breezy dresses but trying to figure out what sweaters and jackets and pants (gasp!) to pair with them.

Tomorrow night I'll be here with some of my old high schools pals doing our band gang reunion. It's our tradition to bonfire on the beach, make Dorito s'mores, drink, and catch up. I haven't done it in ages and I CANNOT wait.

We'll also be staying in view of this again, for a cheap, cheap rate (yay off-season). It is also my goal to find us a better breakfast place this time. Other plans include kayaking and/or biking, fancy dinner, hot shoes, Make-it-Rain(TM), plastic menagerie margaritas and DE nachos at Tijuana Taxi, happy hour at Stoney Lonen, Dogfish Head distillery tour, maybe a show at the Cork, swimming in the finally-warm Atlantic Ocean, maybe some trivia at the Slam, photo-taking, magazines and newspapers on the beach, crossword puzzles, visiting my grandma in the nursing home, and scattering my father's ashes with my mom over the beach.

Packing is always a challenge for me because I like to have all my wardrobe at my disposal, and trying to limit to just a few pairs of shoes, pieces of jewelry, belts, etc is difficult. I've already overpacked, but I prefer it that way.

  1. I am the worst packer ever. For San Francisco, since we got three different weather reports, I packed WAY too much stuff. But I need the options dammit!
