Mr Rodriguez

You can call me Mr Rodriguez now, or at least until the 20th of February. Rodriguez, Markus Rodriguez. I have not re-married, don't worry, this is how they call husbands in Spain that are left home alone while the wife is out of town. In my case, the wife is off to Europe to visit her family for two weeks.

So what is on Mr Rodriguez to-do list the first day home alone? Well, first of all it was summer in San Francisco today. I think I even got a tan today (read looks like a tomato). Perfect day to take a walk downtown, take Bus 71 to Haight Ashbury and have lunch at the Cole Cafe (the Garden Burger and a Thai Chi iced tea).

It is important to stack up on energy before heading off to Amoeba Records. Ohh, the delight! I am particularly pleased with the stuff I bought, or how about this to make your booty go crazy:

Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti - Before Today
Best Coast - Crazy for You
Deer Tick - The Black Dirt Sessions
Eels - Hombre Lobo
The Pixies - Doolittle
Small Faces - Small Faces
The Sonics - Here are the Sonics!!! (there are three exclamation mark, means three times the fun).
Strange Boys - Be Brave
The Tallest Man on Earth - Sometime the Blues is Just a Passing Bird
The Young Veins - Take a Vacation! (only one exclamation mark...)

Makes you tired just reading the list, don't it? That is why it was time to go grab the latest issue of Spin Magazine (I had to buy it in the newsstand since my subscription is still not working...) and grab another ice tea at "Coffee to the People"and rest a bit. No time to loose though, hop on the bus and back downtown to catch the exhibition "How Wine become Modern" (taste good and makes you look better?) at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.


No, they did not let you try the stuff, but they had a very cool part where you could smell different types of wine (makes you kind of tipsy too...). They also had a wonderful photo exhibition, and of course they have the best museum shop in the world. Who wants art, we want to buy stuff!!! This much culture makes you tired, so off to Vesuvio for a cold beer before heading home. To finish off the day, I took a bottle of beer and some potato chips and went up on the roof to watch the sunset. It was a perfect day really, but if your loved ones are not with you, it is only half perfect.
