pink and pinkberry.

I had my second official San Francisco celebrity sighting this week. My first, in case you're curious, was the comedian Anjelah Johnson who plays Bon Qui Qui - she was shopping at LuLu Lemon in the Marina district and instead of saying "hello, I'm a big fan" like a normal human, I just awkwardly stared. In fact I stared so much that she noticed and kept looking over her shoulder at me. Looks like I'm the celebrity now.


My sighting this week occurred while I was walking home from a lunch date with Finn. I ended up strolling behind Pink, the famous musician (and also the person I dressed up as for Halloween 12 years ago). She was with her husband and baby. It was fun to walk behind them and watch people's facial expressions as they passed by - some did double takes, others lit up upon recognizing her, and some didn't notice at all. She is a much smaller person than I imagined - she can't be taller than 5'3". Her baby is also pretty short. Hah.

Staying on the theme of things that are pink, Finn and I went out that same night for Pinkberry, a new frozen yogurt place that just opened up in SF. Unlike most fro-yo joints where you have to pay for toppings individually or by their collective weight, at Pinkberry you just pay for "with toppings" or "without toppings" (no one does the latter, I hope). Once you've paid for toppings, you get as many as you want! We ate our masterpieces in Union Square, which is just a few blocks from our apartment. It was a fun little outing.

  1. It's so weird that you are wearing a down vest and Finn is wearing a sweatshirt in JULY!! It is sooo hot here - hard to imagine being so chilly. I am actually a bit envious.

    Well blast. I guess you can't use ' in your name. Sucks for people who really have a ' in their name. Watch, this blog won't let me be me (if I had ' in my name for real)...

    3. And now we can't have & in our name?! What kind of business is Blogspot running? This is blatant intolerance of complex, exotic names!
