a brief


of me:
originally of massachusetts-extraction, now in silicon valley (by way of stanford, and a large dose of inertia, spent 5 years in mountain view). i moved to "the city" aka san francisco in july 2003, and discovered that inertia sucks -- the city is much better for me.


of choice, by venue:
beamish (rose & crown),
single malt scottish whiskey (as available),
boddington's (o'reilly's),
bass (the royal oak),
tennent's (the bell tower),
newcastle brown ale (everywhere),
occasional ketel one martini (just getting smashed)



vindaloo,daal,pork chops with applesauce, crispy chicken tacos,salmon sashimi,spicy shrimp burrito
