This morning around 7:45 or so, while drifting in and out of sleep, a decidedly female but somewhat electronic voice said "Hi". That was all; it woke me up, but I went back into semisleep and attempted to communicate; no reply. I imagine that was just an introduction, and I might hear more from this entity as time goes on.

I'm in "the city", San Francisco, having Thanksgiving with my lady's family in a house on Parnassus Heights overlooking Cole Valley and indeed, a goodly part of the city proper. Downtown was, about an hour ago, illuminated by Sol to the "alabaster city" of the song, but now the clouds have asserted their temporary dominion, and all is gray and gloomy on this side of the bay.
