Got out of the city alive

4 days in San Francisco, and very little sleep. Finally got home and am greeted by piles of snow to shovel. And of course some assholes walked up my front steps, leaving compressed snow footprints that turned in to unshovelable ice.

Had a lot of fun in the city. The company function was good, though very long. We had some good food and plenty of booze. There was a bit of news they released to us Saturday that was guaranteed to effect stockprice today, and some dick went and leaked the info within a few minutes. Hello insider trading. There is gonna be a witch hunt for the fucker. Whatever, my options got a nice bump. Hope it sticks.

I drank too much, smoked too many cigarettes (4 I think, I don't smoke) and got too little sleep. They gave us the option to stay an extra day because of the snow back East, so I just did it. I didn't want to be landing in the snow in the middle of the night and have to get back home. I went and did all the touristy shit in SF instead. Marina District, Pier/Wharf and Sea Lions, and Lombard street. Had a beautiful co-worker for a tourguide, so that made it worth the effort.

Most of it was kinda boring, actually. The only things memorable were the beautiful company, and the sea lions. There are 100s of sea lions that claim the docks as home. A few of them were playing a version of King of the Mountain. They would jump up on the dock and push the other off. 2 or 3 would go at a time, and they were mostly going 1 on 1. They were going at it a long time. When one would push the other off he would bark and run back to the edge to catch the other when he jumped back up. They were obviously just playing, as they were not aggressive about it. It was very funny to watch. The crowd was cheering whenever a challenger knocked the king down.
