A mixed bag of sacks

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

I haven’t posted in a while and so I thought I’d do one of those clearing house posts that I used to do when this was an email. There’s a lot of small stuff to get to, but no connected topic.

To start: I’m spending the month of November growing a mustache to raise money for men’s health. It’s part of a big push to raise money for prostate and testicular cancers under the name “Mo-vember”. It’s a really silly way to raise money for a really not silly topic. You can donate/ watch my progress here:

Mustache Face

And speaking of mustaches, in the past year or so every time I walk to Bart there’s a guy who lives in the second floor apartment on 24th street facing the Bart station, who has a bunch of lovely painted portraits of local retired newscaster Dennis Richmond. I have no idea why. I have no understanding if it’s ironic or a tribute. The commitment, however, is real. Every morning, this guy has trotted out one or more portraits of Dennis Richmond and put them on his balcony. It’s one of the many reasons why San Francisco is a wonderful place, people are willing to do insane stuff and no one even blinks. Like put up giant pictures of people in thier windows.
