Anyway: my plans are totally up in the air, I haven't even looked at a San Francisco guidebook, I have no idea where any of the parts of the Bay Area are in relation to each other, and I don't have anywhere to stay organised yet. Woohoo. For some reason I am super-flaky this trip. I'm planning to remedy *some* of that disorganisation on the flight at least, assuming I get to a bookshop in the morning. Currently I also seem to have snot, although I'm remaining optimistic that it's "just allergies" rather than a cold, despite evidence to the contrary.
What I do know:
Getting in to SFO at 5.20 pm. Being picked up by the_ogre, whose cellphone number I don't have. Having dinner with kshandra.
Probably doing tourist stuff with kshandra.
Having dinner with tiger_spot, brooksmoses et al.
Friday lunchtime/early afternoon:
Seeing firecat on the way back to the airport.
I still want to fit in mactavish and leback and others, and I want to be taken to some of the awesome museums that people mention, and see Bay Area LGBTQ stuff. Apart from that, I'll go along with whatever. I can eat pretty much anything as long as it's vegan, and I really like vegan desserts that aren't fruit salads or sorbet. (Though I am willing to forgo them in front of people who aren't allowed to eat them for medical reasons. It seems mean to put temptation in your way.)
I also have an American cellphone number. I may as well post this publicly as I'm not exactly going to be keeping it forever: (206) 779 9051. The SIM is in my usual phone, so calls and text are equally fine. (My British SIM is in a spare phone that I don't know how to use properly, so I'm not really using it for text at the moment.)
