I am very happy that I was not in  SF this past Saturday. I think when the FBI, Haz-Mat, SF Bomb Squad and SWAT team show up ONE block from your apartment it’s a sign that it’s time to relocate. Glad they caught him.






I woke up to the sound of a car alarm at about 1am this morning. I peeked out my window and was relieved that it was the car parked behind mine and not my car that was waking the neighborhood. I put my head down, the alarm shut off, and back into slumberland I went. Woke up cheery as could be, enjoyed my coffee, was running EARLY which never happens, and headed out with a spring in my step. Hopped in my car…and immediately sensed something was wrong. I turned to see the back passenger “wing” window had been broken and the door was not closed all the way. GRRRRR. Nothing was missing (since I don’t keep anything in my car) which actually makes the whole thing extra annoying because it means someone did it just to be a jerk…or they were scared mid-crime…

My busted window. So sad.

So, I call AAA who referred me to Safelite Glass and was quoted $250!

I nearly keeled over because my deductible is $500 so I’d be paying for the new window out-of-pocket. Thank goodness a guy friend told me I could get it fixed for about $100. He sent me a few links for places in the “hood” so I called a few and found a winner. In & Out Auto Glass fixed my window in 45 minutes for $114!!! They were super friendly, the place is spotless, and they have comfy sofas, a tv, and computers in their waiting room. Talk about a diamond in the rough!

Exciting! There was a shooting at a cafe on Polk Street today. Don’t panic, it was 8 blocks away from me in da “hood”. Although violent crime is a bummer, the peeps in the hood have been knocking themselves off at a rate of about 1 per week since the new year. I quite prefer this method of street “cleaning”…so nice to have the riff- raff permanently removed. Just as long as they don’t get any closer to my neighborhood…

P.S. Isn’t this the creepiest picture ever? ACK!
