Today was one of those perfect Bay Area days, mostly sunny with one quick rainshower, crisp and cold, filled with awesomeness:
- Feria Urbana at Pizzaiolo, where I picked up a rad tee by The Girl and Rhino and then ate toast with lime marmalade and washed it down with a Blue Bottle mocha. Feelings of invincibility inevitably followed.
- The San Francisco Center for the Book Holiday Fair, which was filled from end to end with even more beautifully-printed paper than usual. I finally settled on an amazing letterpress calendar depicting the coolest swimming pools in the world (like Sutro Baths and the Sacred Pool of Hieropolis in Turkey) by Aviary Press. It includes a quote by Jacques Cousteau: "From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free."
- I don't know why it makes me so happy to see hundreds of drunken Santas rampaging through the Mission, chucking snowballs in Dolores Park and generally creating good-natured mayhem. It just does.
