so, this sunday i'm headed into SF to see my friend/co-worker miguel perform in full drag for a charity event. i'm quite excited
yesterday i was discussing with kirk my getting there, and was telling him i'd be taking the train in, as driving in the city makes for a twitchy tiffosis, and the conversation ran along this line:
me: i'm taking BART. the 16th st/misison station isn't too far a walk.
kirk: why don't you take muni?
me: 'cause muni's full of crazies.
kirk: you do realize that all the crazies live around 16th/mission.
me: yeah, but i can outrun the crazies better than i can fend them off in hand-to-hand combat on moving tin can.
kirk: okay, freak.
i don't like buses, and i like muni buses even less. the first and only time a rode one back in the late 80's, the driver thought he was a dare-devil and there was a guy that was high and freaking out, as well as some other people that frankly scared the bejesus out of me. and it was flithy. granted, i think muni has improved itself, but couple that experience with the disaster of me getting on a completely wrong bus in seattle a few years ago (and not realizing it till i was well on my way somewhere else. alone. at night.), i prefer to walk or take a cab when in the city.
