I’m sitting on a California King bed in the middle of the Castro District of San Francisco with a belly full of pizza, a head full of ideas, and a heart full of happy. I woke up at 4AM (Central Time) to coordinate an airport carpool with some of the folks on the WP Engine Support team. Now it’s 10:55 PM, Pacific Time, so I’ve been awake for nearly 21 hours. To be fair, I slept like a rock on the plane rides from Austin to San Francisco.
I’m back in the city again, and it seems a bit funny to me that this blog post is not separated by any other of my writing since my last trip to SF. That may mean something, like I love this city more than I realized, or it may just be a factor of having been incredibly busy the past few weeks. I moved to a new and amazing apartment last weekend, and work has been fairly non-stop (in a good way).
Look for a response post from me to an article about women’s asses and how the Olympics has been featuring many a picture of the finely shaped rear ends of the lady athletes, but the men have been shown in full-body shots. There was a question about why that might be, and I commented on the article because there is some science to explain that very phenomenon. I’m going to write a response post in the morning because the author emailed me asking if I would write a post to expand on my comment, and share my thoughts on the subject.
Gender is a topic that I have a deep fascination with, and I’m excited to write the post. I’ve spent thousands of hours studying how Men and Women interact differently and the same, and learning how to understand how the sexes look at and respond to the world differently. Some of those hours include about 18 months of college when I was studying with notable Pick-Up Artists in Austin, Texas.
More on that tomorrow in my blog post on the Good Men Project.
For now, here are some pictures from San Francisco!
