Please allow me to introduce myself.

I like a spicey chai latte, ceviche, dollar oyster happy hour at Hog's Island in the Ferry building (always outdoor seating), microbrews, and my ideal Saturday consists of a hang-over brunch in the Mission followed by a long nap in sunny Lola park. I went to public school, loved books about colonial history, hated books about the civil war, and decided to venture into politics late in college. I like to travel (snowy destinations are my favorite), but the best part of my vacations are always coming home.

When you live in a city like San Francisco, there are many things you come to accept into your life as normal. I'm not a native, but I've lived here long enough -- long enough to grow up here, attend public school, attend college, work, play, and live it up. What I'm trying to say is that I'm no less an expert than anyone else on what goes on in the San Francisco day-to-day, crazy, amazing, unique, intricate, colorful, sincere, and beautiful world.

I'm Kay, and I want you to see what I see.
