San Jose/San Fran

What is this, you're asking? Jicama salad. I ate this interesting goodness on Tuesday night in San Jose at a fancy restaurant located in Santana Row. (A fancy outdoor mall in San Jose.)

Last night about midnight, I rolled back into Los Angeles. Hannah, Amanda and I were pooped after a super long week of working up in San Jose. (We also did a little bit of playing in San Francisco.) We worked very long days and drove a lot. It was totally worth it. We were successful in our purpose in going to San Jose, which was to fight a bill against a toy ban in restaurants. Duh. Who would ban toys? The county supervisors will vote on Tuesday to decide whether it will become an actual ban - our work was to try and stop it. We'll see if it happens.

We ate out a lot because we were staying in a hotel without a kitchen. I don't think I can eat out again for a while. I'm sick of eating out. I did, however, ate my first meal of fish and chips at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. Thank you to all the friends who were there who supported me in that venture. I actually enjoyed it. I'm not usually a huge fish person, but the cod wasn't too fishy. (Ha ha ha, pun definitely intended.)

I sure loved the drive up there and back. California is so beautiful. We drove through the country and a few vineyards and a mountain pass. Woo! I love that I grew up in the northern California area - so gorgeous.

Here are a few pics of the week. I love the people with whom I work - we have a really awesome group.

Fisherman's Wharf! I LOVE this place.

A store just for me.

Lisa, Amanda, Abram and Eric... four out of the six interns. Hannah was lost at this point... we later grounded her from going off by herself. :) 

The walruses at Pier 39.  (They're calling you Amanda and Hannah...)

The six interns... we rock... [Special thanks to Mr. Woahn for his super photography skills.]
