January 16th, 1994


Here’s a picture of Bethany and me, celebrating her eighteenth birthday the way we celebrated a lot of birthdays in the early nineties: at Mel’s on Geary Boulevard in San Francisco. Happy birthday, my dear friend and co-blogger! Hopefully no one played with ketchup at the dinner table tonight. 😉

    I love this photo! I think I still have the T-shirt I got that night… although there’s a chance it didn’t survive the move.

    Oh, and no ketchup, although I’m sure Emma would have happily played with some if she had had the opportunity.

      That statement brings to mind when Maxwell was a kitten and he found a soy sauce packet on my counter and took it to enjoy on my new bed. The damn thing soaked through my new comforter, new sheets, new mattress pad, and into my new mattress. I have since learned to keep condiments away from my cats.

        Emma has become so aggressive at dinner since she has been living in SF that I have to put her pot of cat grass on the table to distract her from trying to eat off our plates. Gary feeds her a ton and I can’t stand it. I keep meaning to tell my dad not to let him do that when I’m not here… now that I’m not here four nights a week.

        Are you staying at your job during the week?

      • lfpbe says:

        No, but I don’t get home until 7 or so.

  3. This picture makes me so happy! Happy Birthday, again, dear Bethany.

    Thanks, Sandy! Nothing like a picture of me in my huge ’90’s glasses to make one’s day.

    Hey Jill – is Geary really boulevard? I’ve always called it Geary Street.

    • badkitty1016 says:

      Hmmm. It is Geary Street. How odd of me. Don’t know what I was thinking last night.

      • lfpbe says:

        Actually, I just asked my dad, and he says it’s a boulevard! Don’t know…

      • badkitty1016 says:

        I looked it up on google maps and it says Geary Street. Probably natives call it a blvd but officially it’s a street or something typically San Franciscan like that. Perhaps this could be the subject of a post on “Tony Bennet can Suck It.”

      • lfpbe says:

        Oh my God – I had an experience last night that will be perfect for TBCSI… whenever I get around to actually writing something on that site. Will tell you the next time we talk.

      • badkitty1016 says:

        Thanks to wikipedia, the mystery of Geary has been solved. It is Geary Blvd. west of Van Ness Ave., and Geary St. east of Van Ness Ave. So where we were when that picture was taken was indeed on Geary Blvd.

      • lfpbe says:

        When I was falling asleep last night, I was thinking about it and thought it must be something like that. I think the official definition of a boulevard is a street that is wider than others in the vicinity, which is true of Geary when it’s in the Richmond district but not true downtown. Whew – good thing we didn’t have to talk about it on the phone all night long.
