Mr. Jones and me, we're gonna be big stars...
Just eat it, eat it, eat it, eat it...

I don't wanna, baby, I don't wanna...


You can't make it end! You can't take this away from me!

I. Won't. Let. It.

In case you were wondering, this is the last day of our vacation in San Francisco and I don't want it to be so. I figure if I bitch and whine enough, maybe the powers that be will allow it to continue in perpetuity.

Please, if you have the ability to allow us to stay here in San Francisco, I would greatly appreciate the effort. I would feel forever indebted to you. You would be my hero.

Make the week continue a couple more days. Delay the plane. Cancel it. Create some sort of inexplicable yet highly dangerous weather pattern over Chicago that shows no signs of letting up until, oh, say, next month?

Whatever it takes... I truly don't care.

I love this city. We both do. We would live here if there was ever hope of being able to afford a mortgage. Or a rent. Or a cardboard box, for that matter. This city ain't cheap.

Just let me stay.

I know what you mean. I was there last week all gaping-mouth and jealousy and wondering WHERE ARE THE CABLE CARS IN ILLINOIS? but it did no good. The plane was on time, even. Sorry, dude. Time to come home.

Glad you're having that much fun, though!


Oh I so know how you feel!!! You never want to leave a fabulous vacation. I feel for you, man.


LOL. You sound like me whenever I go to London.

As for the costs out here, you just find a way to make it work. And the mortgage payments? It will happen for me when I win the lottery or marry a rich guy. Until then I'm perfectly happy in my apartment.


Oh, BUMMER! Ok, I'll think hopeful thoughts that you can stay there just a little bit never know! LOL


I'd do a little rain boogie for you, but that may mean a warm front crossing Pennsylvania and I cannot take another day of this ungodly heat!


I know exactly what you mean. I had a blast in San Francisco with Chase and Deb and we only had a DAY! Sorry I missed meeting you, dude. That sucked. Glad you're having a great time.

ms. sizzle

san francisco sure has magical powers. you'll just have to return for a visit very soon!


The trick with leaving a great city behind is to convince yourself that it really sucks and you are happy to be leaving.

I've gotten pretty good at deluding myself after all these years of travel...


Awwww Kevin, sorry you have to go home; San Francisco is one of my five most favorite cities in CA...yes, I have five ;).


You MUST come home. Legions of Kapgar fans await your return.

Just put on your big-boy pants and do it.




You could always move there, ya know! The winters are better there than in Chicago...


Mocha, unfortunately, the delay in our flight happened in Dallas, not S.F. Damn my luck!

Eve, it's a horrible realization, isn't it?

Dagny, it would have to be a return to apartment living for me. However, rents out there are so much more than my current mortgage. It's ridiculous.

Kristina, well, the hopeful thoughts worked for a delay... only in Dallas, not S.F. Dangitalltohell!

Bre, it was not a fun weather pattern to return to. I hate humidity.

Karl, I'm sorry I missed meeting you, too. Actually, I never had a chance to meet up with anybody. That sucked.

Sizzle, we'd like to make it annual.

Dave, I don't know if my powers of self delusion are that strong.

Hilly, it's #2 for me behind Chicago.

SJ, if I get to stay, I promise to blog daily! Really! But only if I get to stay!

Chase, yeah, I know. I'm sorry.

Carly, so true. Now if only someone would pay me the ridiculous salary required to live there.
