As it turns out, I do have time! The due date for my big paper was extended. So....pictures! With my annoying shouty commentary.





It is difficult to convey the sheer terror one experiences whilst driving up or down a San Francisco Road.




Ohhh goddddd.


After we decided that the problem of finding parking at the De Young museum on Veteran's Day was insurmountable, we headed down to the pier. We got some sourdough delights and went to check out the Musée Mécanique, which is basically a warehouse on the pier filled with vintage penny arcade games. It is amazing and my brother had never been, so we were like 'fuck yes'.

I didn't take that many photos cause I still have a bunch from the last time I went (INCLUDING THE ONES OF WHEN I MET CHARLIE CHAPLIN OMG). I should find those.




STEPHEN FRY what are you doing in that box




UNCLE SAM why are you turning into a weeping angel ;_;













Oh hi there Santa, what're you lo- SWEET MOTHER OF CRUMBS WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR FACE
The elves were even more terrifying. I think they had fangs.




THIS THING IS AWESOME! You turn the dial to your astrological sign and you can watch while it types up your fortune!







This one is pretty amazing too. The guy is getting drunk in a graveyard, and when you put in a quarter all these monsters and ghosts come out, and the devil jumps up from behind his tombstone. There's another one like it, but it's an opium den instead. All the morbid ones are amazing.







I want to join them. :(










Oh hay it's Alcatraz. We were gonna go but it was too late. Next time!




We are attractive siblings.




Yeeeeeah!!!




Oh.




Four arms. Riveting.


SUBMARINE TIME YEAH









Tiny toilet!




Oh god look at all those old dials
Hnnngggh







The dials please Erin. The dials please all.




My brother was very adamant that I get this picture. It's totally my fault he's like this.




I nerded a little over this cause I came across them a lot during fic research. I don't know why. Wow I am dumb.




THIS WAS THE TINIEST ROOM





There were three Canadian boys who were geeking out over all the mechanics. Heee. <3




Ohhh godd some of them are yellow aslkdfj;sdf




STUPID FACE
COVERING THE DIALS







There were signs everywhere saying not to lay down here, so of course that's the first thing she did.




I love that the edges are raised. I think I need them, cause I spill all the time, no matter what I'm doing.




Hey Stan.




Red rooom.






















Captain's quarters! I want those sheets.













Goodnight Alcatraz!




Vogue vogue vogue



Oh and also, I am officially graduating. By December I will have a degree. ASDfklhflasjhg.
I've been dreading it but I'm also really excited now. I probably shouldn't be, since I don't have a job and I'm terrified of getting one. In case you hadn't noticed, I am supremely shitty at the whole 'human interaction' thing and I'm probably going to die sad and alone. But at least I'll have that degree, and a rabbit who hates me.

I want to do a meme, but there are so many. I don't know what to do. D:

Oh yeah, and the Happy Potter thing is coming out, or whatever. Maybe I'll go see it tomorrow or something.

Let's just buy Alcatraz. Did we even consider that?

I don't think we did, but it's the most logical conclusion.

Some of those puppets are seriously scary looking!

Anything there that tried to replicate the human form in some way was terrifying. I like that, though. :D
Yeah, it was super fun! We always have a blast in the city.

Awwwwesome. Some of those puppets and arcades are nightmare-inducing! And exploring that sub looks like a helluva lot of fun.

Ey, it happens.
But yeah, some of the mechanical dioramas seriously did look like nightmares. I mean, the opium den one had corpses and demon lurking in the shadows. It was wild.

Oh hi there Santa, what're you lo- SWEET MOTHER OF CRUMBS WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR FACE

YOU MADE ME WET MY PANTS.

Also the B&W of your brother totz looks like a Tool album cover or something. Awesome.

I will be seeing HP while in CA! Perhaps we'll be in the same theater and not even know it! (doubtful, but....)

Yeah, it does! I'm still not sure what he was doing, and I think he dropped one of the pennies in a vent. Whoops.

Yaaay HP! I think you'll be sliiightly too far away, but I hope you have fun!

Woooooooah the puppets and stuff all terrify me, awesome as they are.

And that sub is kickass, as are the photos!

They were fairly horrific. There were a bunch of execution dioramas too, which I thought was really interesting and creepy. People in the 30's sure had some strange forms of entertainment.

Congrats on the upcoming graduation! I'm (finally) graduating in December as well so I know how you feel! Hope all is well :)

Aw, thanks! Good luck with yours too. It's nerve-wracking, but hopefully it'll all be worth it in the end.
