Interesting Finds

This is the incomplete list of random things I came across while I was packing up my life. It’s incomplete because these are only the ones I can remember.

1- the lid to my door stopper was found in my work-out clothes.
Along with my painting outfit (still covered in paint ).

2- A container of BAYER that I took from my Nana’s house just after she died in 1996. They expired 06/97

3- “what’s this? Oops, oh I forgot I had that bedside toy….”

4- I found a book on how to teach babies sign language but I have no babies.

5- 10 Unused diaries – “That could take me awhile”

6- A STROBE LIGHT!!!!! – Woop, Woop!

7- The Birkenstocks – 3 pairs all black, don’t ask.

8-A brown leather Murse – in case you don’t know a murse is a “Mans Purse”

9- Milli Vanilli Cassette Tape “Blame it on the Rain woa oa oa..”

10- I think I found my first pair of G-string panties my sister bought for me when I was in highschool. The Undies I wrote this about.

So Much To Do

I am completely overwhelmed by the sheer volume of crap I still need to pack. Every single room is just about 30% done. I am supposed to be able to move in 16 days and I won’t be able to pack for half of that time.
I am spinning, all I see are boxes, all around me just boxes.  At the same time that I am traumatized by the sheer chaos of all the boxes I realize that I don’t think I have enough? I don’t know where to put all the boxes when I fill them up? People still live here that aren’t moving. I am trying really hard not to make it an inconvenience for all of them amd it is proving to me more and more impossible.
Don’t even get me started on the garage. I have no idea what to say about that room. I wish I could have someone help me but no one but me and my wasband, know what is going,  and what is staying.  So, I am all on my own with this one.
Wish me luck!

Driving in San Francisco

I never know what to expect when I go to San Francisco. I never know if i should get a car or just try to find cabs while I stay. Because driving on the streets of San Francisco are exactly as they appear on every cops and robbers movie you may have seen based in Northern California. Apart of course from the bank robbing chase scenes with countless injuries and property damage involved. No, not that type of scene. But; I have crawled my way up some 90 degree angled hills, only to find a stop at the top. And my car will be looking straight up in the air. So; I can’t see if there are any cars coming in the any of the other directions. What I do know, is that I need to just drive. whether it is clear or not, because my car (even though it is usually a automatic) is starting to slide backwards down the hill, brakes-be-damned!

If you actually are able to maneuver the hills of San Francisco there are also the areas, for example, leading in and out of the city. Where you are literally doing a “Hale Mary” and praying that just by chance you will be in or near the right lane. Because if by any chance you need to turn right on the next block and you are in the left lane…. You can kiss that easy turn goodbye! The three lanes of traffic between you and that turn, not to mention 30 pedestrians, 4 bicyclists and a city bus. are going to ensure that you are not successful. Unless of course it is scripted and you are filming in the one of the movies I mentioned before.

If you are reading this thinking, “big whoop I would just turn left, or do a U-turn and go back” you better think again. In the ENTIRE city there are approximately ten legal left Turns allowed! All other streets are” NO LEFT TURNS!!!!! EVER!!!!” (OK slight exaggeration here) You will find yourself driving in huge squares just to get to one street that you originally started one block East of. That is how i successfully maneuver SF, I drive in Squares.

Another reason to maybe just get a cab is because no matter what…. DRIVER MUST CARRY CASH! If you aren’t paying a driver to drive. You are paying for PARKING. You have three choices.

One- You can park in a parking garage, if you can find one and you will likely pay about $25.00 for the whole day. But you will probably only be in that area for about two hours. BUt, you still have to pay the $25.00.

Two- You can look for a parking spot with a meter and IF you find one you better be prepared to have about $10.00 in change available for hour of parking.

Three- If you are truly blessed and you find a spot on a rare street that requires no parking pass and or meter payment. You better make sure you check out your surroundings because you want to make sure your car will be there when you get back.

What to do, what to do? It’s Just another day in LoLa-Land
