San Diego and Steam Powered Giraffe

Ask me about San Diego 1 year and 12 days ago, and I would have told you that it’s about 2 hours south of my house. My aunt lives there with a house full of dogs. San Diego is where Shamu lives.

Ask me about San Diego today, and I’d still tell you all those things plus more. San Diego is home to Steam Powered Giraffe. San Diego is where the world-famous Zoo is. San Diego is where I have so many fond and perfect memories. (Shout out to Shannon, Charlene, and Charlene for getting Michael Reed to sneak up on me last year!)

While SPG isn’t at the zoo, and someone else takes the Front Street Stage, I’m still so happy to be here. If not for SPG, I’d never have wanted to come here, and now it’s one of my most favorite places. Although I never saw them there, Balboa Park stirs fond feels in me as I pass by. Everything in San Diego is a trillion times more special to me.

For all this and so much more, I thank Steam Powered Giraffe.

P.S. It’s my first SPG Fanniversary! (It was the 16th, but who’s counting.) I didn’t plan to come to San Diego, but this random day trip to the Zoo has allowed me to rediscover this place and celebrate!

Also! See the bottom photo? I spent three evenings last summer upon that post, enjoying and filming. I also met the lovely Paige there on her birthday! We shared that pole, and I nearly died as Bunny sang “Honeybee” to Paige for her birthday.

I… Is that Matt Smith, drummer of SPG as drummer for the Outback Band at the SD Zoo? I haven’t seen him with the band yet in person, but from the few pics I’ve seen, it looks a helluva lot like him…

Bought myself a bunch of sweet pea flowers. Flowers always make me feel great, even if I buy them for myself.  They smell delicious!
