Happy things.

leave a comment »

Better late than never. A list of what made me happy this Monday:

– The rain has left San Francisco for the time being. It almost feels like a real spring, and the rainless state of things makes me so thrilled I could burst.

– I met someone with a dashing collection of cuff links, including knots. And now I want to buy a pair of orange knots for all the men I know. Seriously.

– It’s almost time for March Madness.

– I’m going to Vegas this weekend… and for the first time will step foot outside of the airport. With some of my favorite people in the entire world.

– My love for running seems to have repaired itself. For awhile, I was nervous that I hated it a bit. Turns out, I was just restless.

– Reading SF Eater. It makes me hungry, and I really do want to spend all my money on never cooking again.

I’m sorry, it’s just that the sense of injustice here is overwhelming me…

Said through tears at my tow protest hearing today at the SFMTA.

I cannot believe the complete lack of a burden of proof on this organization. Ticketing officers don’t have to take a photo before issuing a tow ticket, are not contacted in the hearing process, and are not required to record any specific details of the claimed issue besides a generic reason code which sheds no light into the justification for an authorization.

Also, the fact that the towing is contracted out to a private enterprise such that any refunds issued mean money out of the city’s coffers = one heck of  motivation to have no justice.

Blowing my mind.
