Cranky, and a Road Trip?

Summer has arrived in San Francisco. I hate it.

It’s been hotter than hell (which means it might have hit 80 in the city today). There’s been no fog. I’m not a fan of the never-ending sunshine. I’m also cranky because I can’t sleep with the windows open. This, of course, is due to construction of the new yuppie slum across the street. The sound of hammers and saws is not my idea of bliss at 7AM.

So my apologies for being completely out of touch for the past few days (whether by phone, email, or web). I’ve been rather obsessively working on a project which would no doubt bore everyone else to tears, so I won’t even get into it now.

This would be about the point where I realize I have absolutely nothing to say tonight. So what I’m going to do is include a list of cities which make up an early potential version of the Planet SOMA 1999 Fall Road Trip and ask for opinions and comments:

  • Reno, Nevada
  • Boise, Idaho
  • Butte, Montana
  • Calgary, Alberta
  • Edmonton, Alberta
  • Spokane, Washington
  • Seattle, Washington
  • Vancouver, British Columbia
  • Grant’s Pass, Oregon

For you newbies, check out the 1997 and 1998 versions of this trip and note that this year’s version includes lots of uncharted territory where I don’t know many people. If you want to give me a home, show me cool things, warn me how horrible someplace is, or suggest I scarp the whole list and stat over again, let me know.

Cool. That filled up some space…
