I finally live here!

Almost a year to the day exactly since I moved to San Francisco, I finally managed to join the residents club and get myself a residential parking sticker. This means that I can park in my neighborhood ALL DAY LONG without having to move my car every two hours. I am so so super psyched. It means I finally live here...

Odd Trivia

In case you were wondering what happened today in history, here are some juicy tidbits:


Shah Jahan, Moghul emperor of India, builder of Taj Mahal born


Ford Motor Co. increased its daily wage from $2.34 for a nine-hour day to $5.00 for eight hours of work.


The Senate debates the benefits of Peyote for the American Indian.


Walter Mondale, 42nd Vice President of the U.S. born ( i had to put this one is as we went to the same college. And I felt bad for him in 2003)


In San Francisco, construction begins on the Golden Gate Bridge. (Did they mention that the toll was supposed to go away after the bridge paid for itself? Which it did a while ago? And now it pays for the bus system, which runs itself further in to debt every year).


The 103rd Congress convened. (This one just seems slightly random - not unlike this post)

LOTR; Fellowship enters Moria (If you don't know what LOTR stands for, and te hint 'Moria' didn't give it away. Go away. Seriously. You are not dorky enough to be here.)

Who finds this stuff?
