On the heels of my previous $100 “donation” to the city of San Francisco, I will shortly be making another $40 donation in the form of a street sweeping ticket. This one was totally my fault, as I just forgot to move my car. Maybe if I make enough donations, I’ll get a shiny yellow boot for my car.

I will shortly be making a $100 donation to the city of San Francisco in the form of a parking ticket I got last night for parking on the sidewalk. There are two driveway spots in front of our apartment building that we can park in, and when I can, I park across them, but when there’s no parking, I’ll park in them, perpendicular to the sidewalk, but not blocking the sidewalk. I thought that parking on the sidewalk was only illegal if there wasn’t enough room for a wheelchair to pass (there was), but according to vehicle code 22500(f), it’s apparently illegal to park on any part of the sidewalk. Even so, I don’t really think it was in the spirit of the law for me to get the ticket.
I spent the day in the South Bay today because Enzo had a grooming appointment. I had lunch with Peter and Crystal at Sushi Tomi, then Babs joined us for some climbing at Planet Granite in Sunnyvale. Even though I’m a weak baby (I’m climbing a full grade lower than I was at my peak), I had a lot of fun. Hopefully after work dies down, I’ll be able to resume my regular climbing schedule. I did, however, notice that my harness was a wee bit tighter than it used to be… I should really get back to running.
I’ve been watching Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles. It’s amazing to me that as advanced as the terminator robots are, they still haven’t mastered crossing the street without getting hit by cars.
Finally, as I type I’m watching Underworld: Evolution and it’s terrible.
