Mimi takes a vacation - Ess Eff

March 26th, 2007

All I can say is - It’s ABOUT TIME I heard from THAT GIRL. Jetting around while I sit and wait for her. Taking a deep cleansing breath and a quick Ohmmm Shamya… there, I’m somewhat better now. Anyhoo… sounds like this is Mimi’s last stop. We shall see.

Dear Mum,

This is my last stop. I promise. For real. I mean, I really couldn’t just pass through Ess Eff without seeing La Familia now could I. I took BART into Walnut Creek and Uncle Marco picked me up at the staion. Before taking me to see Omi & Ito and Auntie Kinh… we stopped at Marco’s big shot studio. Marco said he had a big surprise for me (I was secretly hoping he was going to cast me in one of his Comcast TV commercials), and the surprise was a recording gig for my own hit song! Paula, Randy, Simon… are your paying attention? What ever… I don’t need you - I have Marco. I’m my own Amimican Idol It was fun, though it wasn’t easy to sing, especially since I can’t even talk. We had fun. We laughed, we ate Top Ramen, went out for Sushi, went racing down Ygnacio… it all went too fast. Oh, and once my song is finished in production - it’s going to hit the airwaves.

Marco took me into The City so I could catch my flight to PDX. On our way to SFO, I asked Marco if it was ok for me to take a quick spin down Lombard Street. Marco encourged me to go speedy fast, so I did! Gawd, you two are SOOOO brother and sister. Two peas in a pod. Anyhoo… Little did I know EssEffPD was waiting at the bottom, and well, lets just say I charmed my way out of ticket.

This is my last email, as I’m just about to board my flight. I do hope you’ll let me go on weekend trips once I get home. I’ve really got the travel bug and want to see more - especially Berkeley… oh how I wanted Marco to take me there, but he said “another time”.

Off to PDX!

    Oh dear. Mimi should know that locals don’t take kindly to our city called “ess eff” or that dreadful “frisco”. ;)

  2. The fabulous Monica allegedly said:

    SF bad - Ess Eff good. “Ess Eff” ala Mr. San Francisco himself, the late Herb “dot dot dot” Caen. The City by The Bay, The City, Ess Eff, Beruit by the Bay… all good!

    SF, Lumpy LA, Frisco and San Fran… all bad! OMG, like finger nails on a chalk board!

    Ok - I really hope Mimi has tired of her travels and is ready to come home to Momma. We are all dying to know how you like sewing on Mimi! I’d love to get myself a Mimi in anticipation of sewing with my granddaughter, but first I’d like to know how well she stitches. You’ll be sure to let us know, right?

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
