Coming [as] Soon!!! [as Katie gets her butt in gear and uploads the photos.]
My supercool sister Katie came to visit on her spring break. We established that she was not moving to California and I reigned in the big sister bossy pants in me. Then I took her to see elephant seals in Ano Nuevo. This was delightful in that it allowed me to listen while Katie called our ultra-conservative-Christian parents and informed them that I'd brought her to see weaners. On the beach. Awesome.
Conversation with my mom (who is nervous that I'm going to corrupt Katie with my liberal-commie-pinko-hippie-tree-loving-left-coast-socialist-pagan-ungodly-corrupted ways)* pre-Katie's visit:
Mom: "...and no making her get an Obama tattoo!"
Me: "Now don't worry Mom, I've got it all figured out. She'll probably come home knocked up, but rest assured, she'll also be pro-choice, so she can get it 'taken care of.'"
Mom:I'm not going to give her the satisfaction of laughing, I'm not going to give her the satisfaction of laughing, I'm not going to
Coming soon: a more derailed detailed version of the Adventures of Katie and Jess. Including our informative sampling of every form of public transportation San Francisco offers, all in one day! I wanted to make sure Katie learned something to make up for missing two days of school and this lesson was entitled Her big sister has absolutely no sense of direction.
*It's ironic- wait, is that the right word? Funnyhaha? Funnystrange? Irritating?- that I'm simultaneously derided by my conservative family for being too wild while I'm being lectured by some guy that I met on the internet on my old-fashioned prudish ways because I told him there's no chance I'm going to sleep with him.
