| ||Eight Hour Poet-a-thon|
This morning Emily and I jumped on
the bus and headed to a small cafe near USF. When Emily and I lived in
USF's Loyola Village Dante's Cafe was within walking distance and she
with her broken foot often hobbled over to sit and write. So it wasn't
a suprise that one of the barristas remembered her.
We ordered our drinks and headed
to a back room to wait for Alex and Todd. Alex and his wife Jeanene
arrived first. It was really great luck that they happened to be in
town this weekend and wanted to meet up. They returned to the eastern
seaboard last year back and considering that they're expectant parents
it may be a while until they'll be back here in SF for a visit. Todd
came in a little afterwards and we all drank a coffee, caught up and
then figured out where to go for lunch.
We ate lunch at Kitaro, one of my
favorite sushi restaurants in SF for its prices and food. We had a
leisurely lunch and then tried to figure out where next to take our
conversation. Since we were in the Richmond, we decided to head over to
Green Apple Books.
When we arrived at Green Apple I headed over to the Annex. Green Apple
owned two shops on the same street since they can't fit all of their
books into one store. The Annex is a few doors down and holds all of
their music, movies, fiction and drama.
I was looking for Tony Kushner. For a few weeks now I've been wanting to purchase a copy of Angels in America. You see, every year I like to start my reading year off with a classic. The past few years I've read Jane Eyre, Dr. Zhivago and Bleak House. Well, this year I've decided to read a theatre classic, well, a modern classic: Angels in America.
I bought two books: a copy of Angels in America and Death and Taxes: Hydriotaphia and Other Plays.
And after we had our fill of roaming through the stacks we headed to
Javacat, a coffee shop on Geary. After our second round of coffee
drinks we decided to go see a movie. But at this point Emily had to
part ways and head over to the East Bay. The rest of us then headed to
the Balboa Theatre to catch a movie.
It was around 8pm when I finally made home.
Talk about time well spent.
