Snoopy-on Guerrero St. near 16th.

Song Key to the Greg House Playlist

This is obviously YMMV territory, based on my interpretations of both the characters and the songs.

Come As You're Not-Day 3

Hey Guys! I know I'm a little late with the post, but it still must be Tuesday somewhere, right?

We're definitely having a more intimate soiree this year, but the costumes are stunning and as far as I'm concerned that just means more booze and bartenders to go around. I have it on good authority, that various attendees and their costumes are still making their way into town having been delayed by voting, traffic, and trying to make bail.

Dinner options tonight will come from the various restaurants in my neighborhood representing the Asian Continent.

Chinese food from Big Lantern
Sushi from Tokyo Gogo
Thai from Bangkok 16
Vietnamese from Thanh Tam II
Indian from Maharajah

Plus, there's left-over pizza, if you really hate all of the above.

Tonight's play-list is a little tribute/reaction to the US Elections today, and though I'm trying to keep politics, religion and sports (aside from naked twister) out of the Yurt, I suspect of few of my feelings on the matter may have seeped through.

I've also posted my key to last night's House MD Playlist-Right Here.

Please keep reading and giving goodies. Some of you made costumes on the grand-scale and I'm still working on reading through all of them myself. You guys are all AMAZING!!!

Ten Reasons To Be Happy

Because the alternative is a full-blown wallow, and I just don't have the energy for it right now.

Why are you happy today?

1. World Champion San Francisco Giants!
I was just outside and I saw all the people walking down Market St. in orange and black for the victory parade this afternoon. San Francisco is not mourning!

2. Sun shining, birds singing.
Not sure exactly what combination of deities and climate change are responsible, but it's absolutely gorgeous out. I was able to go out jogging in short sleeves. (And lots of sunblock.)

3. California!
Remember that letter I wrote to Jerry Brown? I will be very proud to call him my governor after 8 years of the Governator. Carly Fiorina has FINALLY conceded. Gavin Newsome is Lt. Governor. I may not be all that proud of my country today, but I am very proud to be a Californian.

4. Wells Fargo
Because even though I've managed to lose my ATM card (AGAIN!) and it turns out someone was actually using it yesterday (BASTARD!). The good folks at Wells are putting in a claim for me to get the money back and more important, apparently I can pick up a temporary ATM card today, rather than having to sweat out the whole 7-10 day thing.

5. Great fanfic. Aside from all the lovely stuff written for Come As You're Not, I got a special gift last night from amproof, who wrote some wonderful State of Play/RPF for me, where Cal McCaffrey interviews Robbie Williams.

I know my party attendees are already up to their lovely bums in reading material, but when you get a chance, check this one out as well:

6. Friends
I had a great night on Halloween with my peeps at the Mint. (Yes, I'm still working on that picspam. You think it's easy trying to airbrush my double chin out of all those pictures?) I'm really, truly, honestly blessed and touched by the number of people in my online life who've reached out during the past few days to help me get through some of this craziness. Special thanks to hllangel, my partner in election night watching and giving hearty STFUs to the most deserving of politicians and pundits alike. (Yes, that would be, pretty much in order: Michelle Bachman, Eric Cantor, Chris Matthews and Lawrence O'donnell.)

7. Massachusetts, New York, Nevada!
Suck on those Tea-baggers, especially, oh so especially Miss "2nd Ammendment Remedies."

8. I'm moving again.
Slowly mind you. Very very slowly, but I went out for a double loop from Guerrero to Market to Castro and back.

9. I've let go of sugar and red meat again. One day at a time. Trust me, if I ever wanted to fall of every single wagon I've ever been on, last night would have been the time.

Since I'm in "happy mode" at the moment, let's just say I'm looking forward to requesting a fandom or pairing that I might not normally get a chance at and the opportunity to write a fic that makes someone else very happy for the same reasons.

Dawndo Dangerfield-Dolores Park

So if I'm downloading MP3 files and I've got them to open in Itunes and I'm TELLING them to save in Itunes, but when I look at the Itunes info, they're still in either downloads or tempfiles instead of in the Itunes library.

Can anyone tell me how to get them to either save to the Itunes library or at least how I can move them from downloads and tempfiles to the Itunes library?



ETA-PROBLEM SOLVED! Thanks everybody!


Come As You're Not-Day 4

Day 4-And going strong...or on the verge a complete collapse and eyes falling out our heads, depending on how you look at it.

New party-goers are still arriving in AMAZING costumes, so please take another look at the comments in the Main Party Post. I'm loving the array of "new fandom" costumes that are showing up. DUDE!!! Callahans Bar!!

Tonight's music is brought to us by our special guest DJ-Drunken Hedghog:

That's Life-The Bipolar Come As You're Not Mix

Since the Chelsea Drugstore Geodesic Yurt is set up right in the Heart of The Mission....It's MEXICAN NIGHT. Burritos, tacos, gosh-darn quesadillas AND YES...the whole enchilada!

Leftover Asian food available for those who hate Mexican with a vengeance...however if you reside anywhere outside of San Francisco or possibly Los Angeles, let me postulate that you've never have really good Mexican (as in Mexican-American) food. El Torito does NOT count.

Also thanks to mad_jaks, our dips and munchie supply has been replenished. So feel free to the double-dib the crunchie of your choice into one of our multiple dips. (What is there about Ruffles in an ol skool sour cream and onion soup combo that drives me nuts?)

Keep partying people...but try and grab some sleep too. I'm planning a road trip for tomorrow and I'd rather not lose anyone this year. I'm not sure we ever got all of last years party-goers back...maybe that's why it's a little, you know, *intimate* this year.
