Seems to be an anomaly to be spending my delayed flight with a bunch of pencils!

In this day of technology, we don’t do many manual things to pass time besides reading & sleeping & eating. After not having my computer for so long, the first thing I did was pull it open. That worked until I just got another delay notice. Time to find my gate & visit the loo. After changing out of my wet (from getting caught in the rain earlier) clothes and freshening up, I found my gate… And it was packed! I found this table kinda in the middle but at the same time out of the way. For this stretch, I wanted to DO something! (Anything to alleviate the urge to want to smoke!). So, I pulled out a drawing l started a couple days ago. Our dear reader Katykins suggested that I take a picture of some of the stuff I have been working on. So, I give u a 2 in 1. My drawing (unfinished!) AND the airport! Hope u all have a fantastic. Holiday!!

Xoxo.

To Rideshare or to Fly… That is the question….!

Here i lay at my familiar crossroads of travel… Should i fly home or find a rideshare?  There are pluses and minuses to both… Here they are….

positives and negatives of flying…

  1. The swift amount of time it will take to travel from Las Vegas to San Francisco.
  2. I flew out on Virgin America and it was the easiest flight post 9/11 i have taken.  No lines ANYWHERE! and the flight got in early.
  3. Virgin America has a Giants Baseball channel on the onboard tv’s that you can watch!
  4. I would get to see the world from above.
  5. Cost me $250 to get out here when i bought my ticket the day before i had to come. (with 10 day advanced booking it would have been $79 not $211!).
  6. Transportation home from the airport would have to be arranged.
  7. Just damn stressful dealing with homeland security at the airports.

 

The positives and negatives of Ridesharing

  1. The ease of not having to go through security and adjust how i have to pack. (this is a big one!)
  2. Not having to submit my freedoms to some min. wage worker who has control over my future by homeland security.  (i just read that the Supreme Court ruled for a case that basically says that anyone can be CAVITY SEARCHED without any charges being pressed on them!)
  3. SO MUCH CHEAPER!! (although i am not paying for it, i hate wasting other peoples money!  Unless it is Corporate America’s!!) It would cost me at max $50 to get home as a vehicular passenger.
  4. Get to meet and talk to a total stranger.
  5. Easy drive.  9 hours so can be done in a day.
  6. Get to see the central valley as we drive by.
  7. Can actually sleep possibly on drive home.
  8. Can get all the way home to my front door without having to do a change of transportation.
  9. Do not have a lot of opportunities to be a car rider (or driver for that matter!… I have no car in SF.  You dont need one if you are smart!)
  10. MAY find a driver who is 420 friendly ;)

So, thats the pluses and minuses of my options.  I am going to take whatever i can find and hope that it is not the most stressful way possible for me to travel!  Fingers crossed!!

 

Here is my little taste of San Francisco from way up there and there.

I would not be posting this post if it were not for my diligent neighborly comrades over at missionmission.org and buritojustice.com.  They have been so generous and wise to post these two videos.  I thought since i watched the clips within 20 minutes of each others tweets, it must be telling me silently to post the two and make it a theme day!

I really haven’t posted too much on San Francisco, although it is not just a city i live in to me.  I will go into the details of me learning of my lineage to one of the iconic founders of this beautiful town and the learning adventure it has sent me upon that is still in full study mode even today.

This city is filled with amazing, crazy, bizarre, heart warming, heart breaking stories.  It always has been.  It seems as time goes on, it is becoming more and more behaved with each decade that passes.  It sure makes it fun for me to be able to go back and learn about my ancestors while so much insanity and debachary existed.  Makes me feel a little less like a black sheep and more like right at home!  I love you San Francisco!

This is our mascot of SF.  It may not be the Eiffel Tower but, you’d be surprised… It can really grow on you.  Like that really ugly guy that ends up becoming so endearing that he becomes adorable. Kinda like that.  Anyway, here is our beloved mascot… Sutro Tower.
