AIDO's Excellent Roadtrip - NOTHING Like Bossy's

Post #2

When AIDO finally landed at SFO she called her husband and broke the news that she was never coming back hopped in a knock-off Super Shuttle® with a man who didn't speak English but had a very good GPS system.

Weeks earlier AIDO had wracked her brain attempting to figure out who she could impose on stay with and what she was going to wear. This resulted in 21 straight days of panic. Thankfully, AIDO's friend was a shiny prince and came to her rescue with a Aero-bed™ and a key under the flower pot.

AIDO spent the afternoon walking around Noe Valley, getting her nails done, window shopping, people watching and kicking herself for ever moving away in the first place.

This was only the second time in over seven years, that AIDO had ever been away anywhere by herself, and after about 4 hours of silence she was really excited for her friend to come home so she could talk to someone. The purpose of the trip was to attend the 25th Anniversary Party for Goodby, Silverstein and Partners. *sigh*

It was indeed an affair. Black tie. Held at the San Francisco Opera House, over 1000 people in attendance.

Here is AIDO and her date about just before they walked out the door to go to the prom party.



AIDO took this picture using the built-in camera on her MacBook. The very same camera she used to take this thought provoking photo.

Here is the picture AIDO took right before entering the Opera House.



AIDO's date laughed at her picture and suggested that maybe she should have turned the camera horizontally. He laughed at her the next day as if she could do something about it. AIDO thinks perhaps he should have taken the picture, being both a gentleman and an art director by trade. AIDO reminds her date that she is merely a copywriter and thus her expertise lies in selecting the right words to capture the sentiment of the situation.

Here is AIDO with her beautiful friend Andi. Like AIDO, Andi just had a baby six years ago. (AIDO used that "just had a baby" line for four years. On occasion she wonders if she could start breast feeding again to burn the 500 calories or get the 10 extra points. True, true.)



AIDO was sad that she didn't get to see her friends Jim and Jon. But she did get to see her friend Patrick.



Her old co-workers Kelly and Jake.


And her friends Guy and Mark.



To capture these pictures, AIDO used a special technique she learned at Nikon® photography clinic filter. And this special filter is called alcohol.

Here is when AIDO cranked it up to 11.



AIDO stayed at the party until 2. That's 2 in the morning. And although there was no dirty dancing, AIDO had the time of her life. Such a great time that the first thought, AIDO had when she awoke the next morning was:Damn! I should have "networked" more!

Which AIDO thinks is much better than had she woken up to wonder:

Where the hell are my pants?

Oh my gosh! What a blast! I'm so jealous. Please tell me that you had some really excellent thai food or picked up a trendy wrap from a street vendor or something of the sort. Let me live vicariously through you...
