Last night around 10:30 I was waiting for some meteors at Codornices Park (across from the Rose Garden) and there was a lone LARPer playing all by himself.

"Hello! I'm Huckleberry Finn!"

Not heard, but spotted on campus behind South Hall: a squirrel chewing on a discarded rib bone.


What might be even more amusing is the thought of someone walking along, eating ribs, and chucking bones out while they walked. XD

Overheard on Dwinelle Plaza

Guy hitting on a girl: "So what ethnicity are you?"
Girl: "My parents are from Puerto Rico."
Guy: "Oh that's cool, so you speak Puerto Rican?"
Girl: "Um, you mean Spanish?"
Guy: "Oh shit, they speak Spanish in Puerto Rico too?!"

During a linguistics talk about San Francisco's distinct dialect of English:
"San Francisco has a unique identity, even within the Bay Area. I had one of the [San Franciscan] interviewees tell me, 'Yeah, I went out east for college... Berkeley.'"

in public policy class --

student: my friend invested all of his savings into condoms right when there was the big aids scare. but then condoms just dropped, and he lost all of his money!

gsI: ah. so you see how unpredictable investing can be... did your friend stick with condoms, until it went back up?

student: oh, no he pulled out... of condoms.

TELEGRAPH, JE T'AIME [19 Dec 2008|05:28pm]

Now that it's clear where we (I and my charismatic compadre) were; Let's get on with the tale.

after passing by a lovely gentleman sporting a sparkly dress under his regular hobo ensemble. We run into another fellow seeking some form of patronage from us, alas I and my friend are teenagers, brokeeee.

He mumbles and chirps, we stride forth on our journey, duck into a store. Eight minutes later:


this is what we heard in Berkeley.

We sneak glances out the store's front door, she and I on all fours, three inches of wide eyes escaping the door frame. Well what do you know it's that guy.

He's just fizzings and sputtering and screaming, LOUD. Most everyone's kinda just passing by like normal, and we're just like, shiiit
would ya look at that.

went on down the road  back and forth, but wherever we were we could still hear him.

To put it in better perspective, this started out by Mars, and we could hear him when we were almost at bart

and yea
