West Coast Baby!

We got into SF last night and got to our hotel room at about 11:30, watched "They Live", and went to bed. See quotes below.* A pretty easy day overall, we didn't get on the plane in Des Moines until about 7:15 but got to Denver on time. Greg did get cavity searched at the security checkpoint, but he's pretty used to that anyway ;-)

So, the flight was uneventful and gave me a lot of time to puzzle it out with my new pal Layton. I bought the game yesterday just for the flight, and everyone crowded around through the entire flight, trying to solve the puzzles together. All in all a fantastic little game and perfect for the flight.

San Francisco is an awesome town so far, just as an example we walked out of our hotel this morning and found we were directly next to a sushi place. And a crazy Chinatown gate thing was not 20 yards up the street. Now we're at the Orbit Room Cafe, drinking fresh squeezed juice on these concrete inverted cone table things with a great view of Market Street. And we're working on user stories for Dinowaurs :P

Here's a horrible picture:

Anyhoo, back to work I s'pose. We're going to head toward the Moscone to register early later on and then hopefully grab some sushi.

* "I'm here to chew bubblegum and kick ass. I'm all out of bubblegum!!!"
EDIT [Greg]: We weren't sure if "They Live" was the origin of this gem since we've heard it in other places, markedly, Duke Nukem. If anyone has further information on this matter, please contact poison control. Or comment.

I bought They Live for a friend (out of a Walmart bin). Four bucks. If you wiki the movie you will find that the 15 minute fight scene (for no reason!) in the middle of the movie is recreated in South Park between Timmy and Jimmy.
