Yesterday, however took the cake. I don't live in a fancy schmancy neighborhood, I live in a ghettofication (1st wave gentrification). This being San Francisco, I don't have to go far to find a fancy schmancy hood. In fact I hang out in one that's about 15 minutes away from where I live. In this neighborhood, there is a homeless guy who is always asking for money. He is very polite so I always assumed he probably collects enough to keep himself fed. That is until I saw him last night talking on a cellular phone better than mine!
Living in San Francisco is slowly turning me into a caricature. In five years, I'm going to be that person people give wide berths to as they walk down the street since I'll be yelling inappropriate to anyone I see.

Big Brother 7: The Gateway Drug
I find myself espousing the "good" aspects of Big Brother. I have contemplated paying the $36 fee to watch the housemate 24/7 via live feed. I begged my friends to vote for one of the contestants when housemates were being picked. BTW - my guy made it. Thanks all!!! GO KAYSAR!!!
Last but not least this problem with Big Brother now has me watching Rock Star: Supernova. How can I resist the combination of Dave Navarro AND Tommy Lee? This show honestly sucks it's like trying to find a winner from all the American Idol rejects. Funny for one episode but try to imagine a complete season with William Hung, etc. It's pretty horrific, and that is where I found myself last night after catching the show for the second time in as many weeks.
DAMN YOU CBS!! I will not forget this. And to teach you a lesson, I'm going to buy only ONE month of BB7 live feed instead of the whole season.

Trains and Thangs
Everyone who’s anyone knows that San Francisco has the best public transportation crazies. Our crazies are the most well known and are the most eccentric. Case in point: When I had some friends visiting a couple years ago, we saw a fight on a very crowded bus between a teenager and a man about 50 because he sat on her Chinese takeout. In his defense, the bus was crowded and she only paid for one seat. In her defense, well there was none. Needless to say once the fight was broken up and Chinese food was splattered all over the back of the bus, a homeless man made the priceless comment “I could’ve eaten that!” Mind you that’s the most BORING story about riding public transportation in SF.
So what does New York do? They up the ante by getting violent. That’s just great! The crazies out here in SF take pride in being the wackiest on the trains and busses. So now our kooks will be attacking people. I just hope that when they do attack, it’s all the tourists here from NY.
