Above: The biggest little city in the world! I think I would rename that to something more appropriate -"Reno is like Vegas without teeth!"

This past Friday, Paul and I headed to Reno with two of our close friends Will and Ryan. Ryan’s 25th birthday was this past Saturday and he wanted to head to Reno for some good ole white trash fun! Paul and I had never been to Reno so we thought while we are still living in California we would check it out. Reno is only a three-hour drive from San Francisco so we all packed into out new car and headed on a fun road trip.

We all skipped out of work early Friday to beat the traffic. We were all pumped to go on a mini birthday bash weekend. We were jamming to the new Madonna CD and looking at the awesome views of snow-capped mountains as we headed to Reno!

Above: A nice scenic drive.

When we got to Reno it was exactly what I pictured it would be – old Vegas style with trashy shops and people that were stuck in a time warp. We were placing bets on how many people we would see carrying oxygen tanks around the casino. We stayed at Harrah’s – one of the few casinos that were in Reno. Our room was small and the shower barely worked and the toilet didn’t flush! We didn’t care it was after all a white trash weekend.

Above: Paul and Will Tourists!

Above: More tourists...Ryan, Me, Will and Davin.

Paul, Will and Ryan made their was down to the casino but I needed to freshen up so I stayed behind. When I went downstairs to join them Will had already hit over $800.00 on a penny slot machine! What a way to start the weekend!! We then discovered a new game called Blackjack Switch. We all were hooked and had a blast playing it. While we were all sitting down playing, I started to feel the whole building move from side to side. It’s was an earthquake! I had never felt one so strong and it lasted quite some time. The swaying movement sent some people running out into the streets but we all sat and looked at each other – not moving. I looked up and noticed there were flat screen TV’s above out heads and started to get up form my seat, but then it stopped. It was a pretty powerful earthquake.

Above: Motley Crue!

Now after we had been playing blackjack for a while an African American guy was sitting near Paul and was trying to bum money off of him and then he started to point fingers at us and say we were gay. It was quite comical but we just ignored it. I had no idea this would be the tone of the Reno trip!

Above: A shirt that appeared in one of the umm I think not.

After the quake, we met up with Ryan’s good friend Davin and headed out to one of the few gay bars. Poor Davin actually lives in Reno and showed us the miserable places they had for gay nightlife. Our cab driver was a bit odd and felt the need to tell us that he has dirty dreams about gay men. Oy Vey, the guy reminded me from the puppet on tales From the Crypt. I am not sure what he was expecting five gay guys in a cab to do or what he was thinking but we hightailed it out of the cab fast! The clubs were deserted and filled with mostly lesbians, which is totally fine, a lesbian was hitting on me and telling me I am handsome and I had a cute name. Uh, she was pretty drunk so I'll take that with a grain of salt. After dancing and rang in Ryan’s birthday at midnight, we headed back to the Casino to play more blackjack.

Above: Paul, Ryan and Will enjoying the views....

...this is there view!

Saturday (
Happy 25th birthday Ryan) was a lazy day of walking around Reno and enjoying the nice weather. We walked around the little city and heard more derogatory remarks from cars driving by yelling “Fags” and overweight women walking by saying “It’s a queer fest in Reno” It was quite comical because the people in Reno are the true definition of white trash – I thought Texas took the cake but Reno is the grand prize winner. People were driving around in pimped up cars from the early 80s and blaring “Freeze Frame!” The majority of the people looked like they were dragged along the pavement. I don’t think anyone had a full set of teeth! It was really a sad place bit we did have fun.

Above: Ryan bringing in his 25th birthday with his sushi treat!

We found a really nice sushi place and sang happy Birthday to Ryan! It was a great time but we were ready to head back home. We all left with the appreciation of where we live but it also opened my eyes to how ignorant the world is. The majority of this country is STILL backwards – I am just glad we are not living in those areas. This country is a long way from having an African American president, that’s all I’m saying!

As my friend Deb said today, "Reno is like Vegas without teeth!" Amen!

Above: Oh wait - with that title "Reno is like Vegas without teeth" above this photo it appears I am saying Will has no teeth? Nah - he's part of the Vegas crowd! Driving back from Reno - Will lost in the moment of sleep.

Home Run

Above: Me a few weeks ago at bat with my Wizard of Oz cleats! Take me home!

Softball season is in full swing! Paul and I both play in the same league for the same sponsor, The Pups! Paul is in the C division and I play in the D division in gay softball. When I met Paul he introduced me to softball, Paul has been playing baseball/softball all his life, pretty much, and when I met him I never even knew how to catch a ball let alone play softball. Paul is a very good ball player and a great teacher!:-)

Above: WOW! This picture was taken in 2005, my first year playing softball.
Look at the frustration on my face!

This is my fourth year playing softball, I played two years in Boston with the Bear Hill Cafe/Brushbacks and this is my second year with the Pilsner Pups. I have been the catcher ever year I have played softball and I am very comfortable in this position - it looks easier than it is. Every year I improve with my playing skills - early on I was always afraid of the ball and I have finally learned not to be afraid of it. I also have learned how to hold the bat and wait for the right pitch. And my running has always been my strong point but I have mastered base running.

Above: 2005 My first softball team! See that picture IS proof I can get a kickass tan (me first row far left)! LOL

Above: 2006 - The Brushbacks! I am in the center with blue visor on.

Earlier this month I told Paul that I am happy with how I play and I know that I don’t have the strength to actually hit a home run and that I will never hit one - I didn't say this in a poor me kind of way but in a more factual way. Paul and I have been gearing up for our Mexico trip next month and both want to get in tip-top shape for it. So we have been working out together at the gym, pushing each other to get in better shape and also learn from each other. We did this really great exercise that works the core of your body and the core of your body is really what you should use when you hit a ball.

Above: The Pups celebrating a win! I am number 23.

So this brings me back to what this post is about. I hit my first home run!!! So even when you think you can't do something or someone tells you you'll never do this or even when you don't think you have it in you to do something...someday..somewhere it can happen and you will say to yourself, "Wow, I really did it, I did something I didn't think I could do." When you say and do that - challenge yourself to the next thing, and the next thing....cause that's what this life is all about, a series of challenges, whether it be taking your first steps or hitting a home run or just surviving day-to-day, challenges are what make us grow. Challenge yourself!

Afternoon Delight!

Nice to meet you!

There's nothing like splitting up your workweek with a nice lunch - away from the office and spending it with work friends. That's just what I did yesterday and it really helped make the stress from the entire week just go away! Thanks Oksana for the amazing lunch! It was also Deb's birthday this past week and this was part of her celebration! Happy Birthday Deb!

Glorious Weekend!

This is the 200th post on
The Streets of San Francisco Blog!!!

This weekend has been amazing! Friday night we had a bunch of friends over to hang out, play games and have a few drinks. It was a beautiful night and everyone enjoyed our outdoor patio. Check out the fun filled photos from game night below.

Above: Game night out on the patio Starting with Mark with red cup and going clockwise, Jeff, Jay, Cody(hidden), Troy, Richard, Paul, Ryan and Will.

Above: Game night indoors starting with Joe in red chair and going clockwise, Eric, Kurt, Michael, Yan, Richard, Sean and Kurt.

Yesterday, it was over 80 degrees! AMAZING weather we are having. So, I tried to get some sun on my pasty white body. I swore off sun a few years ago and have not really been the sun worshiper I was in my 20s, I used to get nice and tan but I just decided to not lie in the sun anymore so it's been a good two years or more since I have actually did tanning, but I need to since we are going to Mexico next month! I need a base tan!

Later in the day, we took Zach for a walk around the city and to Dolores park - so crowded there but fun. Zach had a blast! Enjoy the photos!

Above: Yes, we took that picture - it's amazing!

Earlier this week Paul suggested we go see a sunset, since we have been in SF we have not sat and watched the sun go down. So he picked me up from work and we first went out to dinner at this really great seafood place right next to where I work called FISH, I go here often with co-workers, it's amazing to be able to see these views from work!

Above/Below: Beautiful views from dinner in Sausalito.

Above: Great food!

After dinner, we headed to this great trail above the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a really amazing experience. We both were in awe of the beauty all around us and how it cost us nothing to watch the beautiful things that some people take for granted evey day. It's hard to describe what we saw and how we felt so I'll show you in pictures. When I am old and gray I want to come back to this place and see this before I die.

Above: Me feeling the power of the sun on the outside AND the inside.

Above: We sat on this bench - how beautiful is this!?

Above: Paul and a view!

Above: Me looking at a view to kill.

Above: Paul enjoying the view.

Above: This HUGE raven was flocking around us and we got a stunning photo of him.

Above: See Paul hidden WAYYYY up there?

Above: Beauty!
