Snippets of SF 2

Bush Man. Apparently he's a legend. I saw him in action the other night, and he's been around a long time. He sits by a garbage can with two branches of fake leaves and pretends to be a bush. And moves when some unsuspecting tourist walks by and scares the hell out of them.

Twiddling. Bored here in the booth, so one person has decided she is going to twiddle her thumbs for an hour. I wanted to look up what defines champion twiddling, but there's a wait here for the computers. One man was nice enough to let me ask him to look up twiddling really quickly. Once I clarified that I meant thumb twiddling, we read some stuff in Wikipedia. Which is when he confided in me that he thought that I was talking about masturbation. It's ok - he was gay I think. So we had a good laugh imagining twiddling championships.

Inspiration Point. Went out to Berkeley to visit a friend and we hiked up to Inspiration Point to see the sun set over the city and Golden Gate Bridge (neither of which we could really see that weel - saw the fog...). It was beautiful.

Taxi Stories. I will have to wait for that one. Long and involved.

And must get back to my booth-mates.

You're living the booth life! I just got done with my booth life until May. Yay!

Hmm...I don't know if that's the best or most depressing Inspiration Point story

Ah, yes, the booth life.

And G, well, let me know what you decide.

Bush Man is always there near Fisherman's Wharf. We usually try to scare him, too, when we go by.

He's always smiling, a nice guy.

Sorry the view from the Berkeley Hills was fogged in. On a clear day, you can see the GG Bridge and so much more. Did you see the wild goat herds up there, too?

Nope, no goats. Saw signs of mountain lions.
ha, that's a joke. literally just the signs warning people.
