Things About Today

Today was my first non-work day in a bit but it didn't like it cuz busy-ness.

First, B and I had to wake up earlier than normal in order to gather Sid from her sleepover on the other side of town so we could make it to Gay Running Club on time. After the run we all sped home in Bevan's car for a costume change before heading to a completely different part of San Francisco to our soccer game against the Dragons which ended in a zero/zero tie. Following the game Sid went with her mom while B and I went to the Squat & Gobble on 16th Street for a late mimosa brunch, then back home to change our clothes again so as to arrive at Players Sports Bar on Pier 39 on time to meet a bunch of nine-year-old girls for Sidney's ninth birthday celebration which included cake, candy, chicken tenders, French fries and video games. I think it should be noted that I defeated the Bevan Dufty in air hockey by a score of seven to two in spite of the incredible amount of trash that he talked at me beforehand.

After Sidney's party ended around seven o'clock B and I raced downtown to the AMC Metreon 16 to catch the 7:50 showing of The Intern, the latest flick from Nancy Meyers, my favorite screenwriter whose name isn't Aaron Sorkin. The Intern was totally grand and happy-making and I have a huge crush on Robert De Niro's character and an even huger crush on the film's set designer. I'll probably buy the DVD when it becomes available on DVD.
