Hello there. Who is still reading this??  Glad you're here though. 

I actually did a 12 of 12 for April, but I didn't post it  You can view the photos HERE on my Flickr site.  In the meantime, here's one for May.  And check out the rest of the Twelvers at Chad's Blog.

6:45a* - Ready for work.

6:20p - Worked all day and didn't take a break so there was nothing to take pictures of until I finally left at little after 6pm.  I needed to go get my little cousin a birthday present, so I decided to walk through the city to Union Sq to go to the Disney Store.  This building is the old Stock Exchange office building.  It's now an Equinox Gym.

6:25p - Walking up Pine St in the Financial District.  This is the easiest, quickest route up to Nob Hill and down into Pac Heights through to the Avenues.  Just an FYI if you need to get around the City.

6:30p - Almost to Union Square and spotted this gem.

6:35p - One of the entrances to Union Square.  I always thought the "Hearts" program was only supposed to be a short art stint, but I think they've been moved around the City for the last...um...five years. Maybe longer.  Always nice to happen upon one.

7:20p - Stairs leading down to the Powell BART station.  I was trying to get a cool shot of the bubble walls that line the downtown BART stations.

7:45p - Zoooooooooom

7:45p - I just like these platform signs.

8:15p - Stopping by my friend Cory's place to feed his cat, but the cat was no where to be found.  I figured out that he was freaking out by some beeping going on upstairs.  Stupid smoke detector battery.  Unfortunately, even after I stopped the beeping, the kitty was still no where to be found. Which freaked ME out.  Silly kitty.

8:45p - I FINALLY coaxed him out of hiding and he immediately required some extra brushing/petting. That green mit in my hand is like a brush and Umlaut can't get enough of it. 

8:45p - I basically just have to hold my hand out and the cat does all the work.

8:45p - Umlaut doesn't even need me really. Hello!

Ok, that's all - I have so many things going on and stuff that I have cool pictures from...hopefully will be back here soon. But right now I have to head into Pittsburg for my birthday dinner with my family.  Yay!  Happy May - it's the best month of the year.  :-)

* All times are estimated. Because I erased the photos from my camera before I got their timestamps. Doh!

I really enjoyed your 12 this month. Your self portrait doesn't show any shoes......with all the walking you did, I hope you weren't in heels. :-) You're a good friend to go above and beyond by tracking down the stupid smoke detector. I hope you had a fantastic birthday dinner. Happy birthday!

I'm sure it's not you. I've had to screen all comments due to the ridiculous amount of spam bots that LiveJournal gets. I thought I had unscreened all your comments, but maybe I missed one and now it has disappeared, b/c I don't see it. Sorry!

Re: 12 of 12
no problem!!
looks like blogger's spam filter works better though,
but i can understand about spam.
they're such a nuisance all over the place.:/~
