Indian Summer

Did anyone watch the Real World growing up? I haven’t tuned in for many years but I am going to watch the next season because it is based in San Francisco this time!

I know this because I saw them and their entourage of cameras. Their house is down the street from my job and rumor has it that they spend a lot of time on Polk St. Maybe this will be my time to shine and a movie director will see me walk by in the background, call me up and put me in his next Blockbuster hit. 😉

It has been SO HOT this weekend that I can not even bare it. Being a San Francisco native means that 60° degree weather calls for shorts and a tank top. Sunday was a whopping 88°. I didn’t even know what to do with myself besides lie in the grass at Dolores and melt the day away.

Good thing I had such beautiful people to surround me. 🙂

I was battling myself and wondering if I should show you what I ate. Conclusion is that this is kind of a food blog and it would be weird without even one picture of food.

So…heres my salami and arugula sandwich. It is a little sad because we are not the best picnic packers.

A little plain but it hit the spot.

Dolores Park was dead because SF had a Bluegrass festival in Golden Gate Park and O(a)ktoberfest in Oakland.

PS: The guy in my picture is one of my new roommates. He is also half Chinese and half white! What are the chances? I don’t meet a Hapa very often but I get excited when I do. As of today, I personally know six. Let me know if you know any so I can meet them, please. 🙂

Saturday was probably my last Dolores run of the year. It was a good end of a run, since I already went more than a few times this summer. Although this weekend was so hot that chickens laid hard-boiled eggs, I know it is going to cool off soon and rain weather will shortly be upon us. I’ll be back next year for the Hunky Jesus contest.

We all packed up and left when the sun was barely visible. I was craving chicken, so we headed to the Mission. While walking to the restaurant, I let out the most dramatic and cheerful scream when I saw THIS.

The Creme Brûlée Cart opened a brick and mortar store!! Bloggers, you can have your Froyo because I am Team Creme Brûlée, all the way baby. You are probably sick and tired of hearing about it but nothing makes me happier then cracking the sugar glaze open.

The sign does not lie, it was one of my top 5 Best Days Ever. I am a little scared because now there will be nothing stopping me from eating one everyday.

Look at that technique. It is making me want to get dressed and head over there right now.

I was actually a little nervous about telling people they had a store because I do not want to have to wait in a long line like every other delicious desert place in the city.

And since I ate it before taking a picture, here is an old picture of the Berry Compote Traditional Vanilla Bean Creme Brûlée. I think it’s my new favorite flavor, after just traditional vanilla bean.

I wish I had more to show you but on Sunday, I was cooped up inside the house studying for upcoming tests. Since I like sharing my wealth of knowledge, did you know that the average person eats 46 slices of pizza a year?

I think I reached my allowance a few months ago.

Here’s to pizza!

Know any cool food facts? How was the weather in your hood this weekend?
