The game was not good. Giants lost to the hated Dodgers 6-1, and Barry did not hit the milestone home run. The Cha-Cha Bowl we had for dinner and the garlic fries were good, though.
Getting back to the hotel was easy. After making our way out of the park, we queued up for a Muni streetcar, which delivered us to Embarcadero. Coming out to street level, we were at the California cable car terminal, and a car rolled up just as we arrived, so we were able to get out of the cold and ride the car over the hill to the other terminal and the Holiday Inn Golden Gateway.
Eventually, we found the parties, and even though we'd left our badges in our hotel room, they let us in anyway because they recognized us. People reacted to us in our orange-and-black wigs with some shock. We said, "It's a horror convention, isn't it? At least I think we look horrible." They replied, "That's not exactly what we had in mind."
We hung around for an hour or so, but being orange, we needed to turn into pumpkins, and we headed back to our hotel. I needed to power up my computer to enter my expenditures into Quicken before I forgot them. I idly checked the available wireless networks. At least one of them is an open link not charging fees the way the hotel one is charging. On the down side, the signal strength is low to very low and it keeps dropping out, so I'd better hurry up and finish posting this before I lose the connection again. Besides, I need sleep!
