The phrase "Silicon Valley" is normally associated with men and women working at computers. One seldom gives much thought to what "Silicon Valley" adults, such as San Jose singles, do with their free time. The following article seeks to fill-in that gap. It considers what one might see while peering over the shoulder of a San Jose single.
One might see a screen, but it would not necessarily be a computer screen. A glance from behind the back of a San Jose single could very-well cause someone to look at a movie screen. In January of 2006 a group of San Jose singles, all students, accompanied David Chai to Park City Utah for the Sundance Film Festival.
Chai, a lecturer at San Jose University, had written the script for a seven minute film titled "Fumi and the Bad Luck Foot." During the summer of 2005 more than one San Jose single helped Chai with the making of that film. Chai's film appeared among the list of 70 films that would be shown at the Sundance Film Festival.
A glance from behind the back of a sobbing San Jose single might reveal the contents of a letter from Don Garber, Commissioner of Major League Soccer. In January of 2006 Garber posted on the Internet the news that the San Jose Earthquakes, the City's professional soccer team, would be moving to Houston, TX. This move would mean a decrease in the number of sporting events available to singles that are dating. San Jose singles enjoy joining a date for a trip to a game played by professional athletes.
Of course area singles could still find many things to do with a member of the opposite sex. San Jose singles could still enjoy a game played by one of the other professional teams in San Jose. Male and female singles in the area remained able to attend the games played by the San Jose Stealth, the city's professional lacrosse team. They could also spend a part of their leisure time watching a game played by the San Jose Giants, the City's minor league baseball team.
Most importantly, the singles in San Jose had not lost their ability to watch the San Jose Sharks, the City's professional Ice Hockey team. That team continued to play its home games at San Jose's HP Pavilion. Hence the walls of the Pavilion still echoed the shouts of more than one San Jose single.
What one would not expect to see when looking over the shoulder of a San Jose single is the door to the Winchester Mystery House, the former home of Sarah L. Winchester. Back in 1884 Sarah initiated changes in her residence, changes that would lead to the creation in San Jose of a most unique dwelling. It is building well known to area singles, but not a building where singles would go while dating. San Jose singles stay clear of the Wincester House.
Sarah Winchester paid contractors to increase the size of her home, creating a mansion with 160 rooms. For some reason, however, those contractors produced a mansion with many unusual features. For example, this mansion contains a staircase that leads to the ceiling. In a survey that included members of either sex, San Jose singles would doubtless show a reluctance to climb that staircase.
The large number of strange features in the Winchester Mystery House explains why it fails to attract one San Jose single. San Jose University animation students, however, might one day find reason to stand on the outside of that mansion. They might want to use the Winchester House as the backdrop for the scene in a film, a film that could one day be shown at the Sundance Film Festival.
