socks and cat

my trip

Home safe and sound. So this last weekend in San Francisco I got in touch with my hippie roots. The shopping at Haight Ashbury was fabulous! For you Seattle folks, it's kind of like the shopping on Broadway in Capitol Hill, but better! There was one store where absolutely everything was flashy and outrageous and Burning Man appropriate. I've never seen anything like it in Seattle or even LA. Here I am on the corner of Haight and Ashbury:

I had mentioned that I might want to see a play, so Jai totally surprised me with tickets to Love Janis. The show was half play, half rock concert. And the singer sounded amazingly like Janis Joplin. At least that's what Jai tells me. And he knew her back in the day (not personally, but socially), so I'm taking his word for it.

I was both surprised and delighted by the S Factor studio. I'll talk about that more later in a more filtered post. But I can say that I had a fabulous time shopping there!

I got this shirt:

And I got this shirt in black, it says "Got Pole?" on the front and "Pole Master" on the back:

I got this fluffy skirt in black, it looks fabulous when doing pole spins:

And I got these little hot shorts in red velvet:

Would you believe I spent $95 in there? And every penny of it tax deductible.

We had many other adventures as I was introduced to the delights of Marin County. I sure like it down there in the Bay Area. I might take a couple weeks off in December and visit again before I head to LA for the holiday.

Fun with teal!

For you folks that haven't seen me with my teal green hair yet, you can click the thumbnail below or the cut to see it:

I'm getting a lot of compliments and really enjoying it. My only disappointment is how quickly the color fades. At this rate I have to redo it ever 3 weeks or so because I don't like the color it fades to (sort of neon green). I'm tempted to switch to burgundy, because that would probably fade into a pretty soft pink. But there are so many goth gals in this town with that burgundy or artificial red color that they kind of all look like clones of one another. At least with the teal, I'm both expressive and unique. And that seems to be appreciated. Maybe I'll consider having the blonde covered in a permanent teal, rather than one that fades. Or maybe I should try the burgundy first just to see how I like it.
