But in Athleta Catalog land, it's sunny, warm, head-high and filled with gorgeous women surfing. Ahh, sigh.
Oh that's fog! I thought it was all the pot farmers in the sunset smoking there goods:)
Hey a little reminder....maybe not so little...so bear with me:
Yesterday I had an appointment in the East Bay. _M0raga specifically. You know, that little quaint town slash bedroom community sandwiched between Orinda and Lafayette. So I leave work (downtown SF, SOMA) and hop on the moto. I noted it was about 69degrees, sunny, and nice, and fairly pleasant generally speaking. So I start motoring onto the freeway, and it's really cool and nice, but there's a fair bit of traffic due to all the bridge and tunnelers trying to hamster their way back to the East Bay. Even on the motorcycle I noted it was a bit congested for that time of the day, and thought to myself if I was in a car, I'd be screwed and steaming. The moto at least keeps me busy and I can split lanes and keep active and moving. Then...after I get onto highway 24, and then pass the tunnel it hits me. BALLS. Pure unadulterated HOT AS BALLS HEAT. From 69 degrees to about 86 and I'm in full motorcycle jacket, gloves, and helmet. Then, as I get into town, pass all the useless condos, useless Mc Mansions and middle range over priced ranchers, it's even hotter. Then it hits me. I hate M0raga. I hate the East Bay. It's mostly the weather. It's other things too, like the isolation and insulation of that fetid 'culture' they have there in M0raga. Anyway, sorry for the digression there. It's just too hot, too stuffy, and very unpleasant. You can't walk anywhere without saying it's HOT AS BALLS, wherein in SF, a walk from SOMA to the outerlands while it would take a while, couldn't kill you (Yes, I've done it, flat tire on the push bike, sadly).
So after the appointment, (No I'm not a gigolo), I race back to SF, to meet and retreat into the cool, welcome grey. And it was then, that I mused upon and even vowed to never hate the blowing grey again, despite what it does to the surf. I'll take living in blown out grayness to the BALLS of someone else's summer.
The TL is as far east as I go!
I hate the grey. Summer blows here in SF...it does. It blows.
Hey. But if you make it all the way to Stockton, there is a fantastic Cuban restaurant that makes the trip all worth while. Let me know. I can did up the contact info.
Damm piss! I didn't know you had a mad max stlye on the side'
What kinda motor bike you riding?
After watching the news yesterday and how the majority of it was "PG&E is doing rolling blackouts, don't use AC, spare the air!" I couldn't help but to feel smug. While the rest of the country is wringing their underwear out from swamp ass, I'm grubbing down on a hot bowl of Pho to get my core temps up from the water. It's even better when winter hits and everywhere is freezing over, we enjoy sunny days at the beach with waves!
Now I'm off to go enjoy the smell of my own farts.
Hotness for sure, but what's up with the traffic cop hands on Athleta model...
Well said Broseidon... well said.
Thank you, @piss & @broseidon. My feelings exactly. Sure, living in SF has made me weak, unable to deal w/any extremes in temperature--When it gets above 75 degrees, my balls drop to my knees and the swass requires constant changing of pants, and when it drops below 45 degrees, my balls retreat in to my gut--but damn, I love it.
lolllll thanks for all the congruence. Grey is the new grey, New York Times be damned. I ride a XR250 when I'm feeling like sippin' 60mpg or my bigboi 650DRSE. Broseidon damn that still has me lollin hard :) Freshen that shit up with cilantro and yes, use the lime...for everyone's sake! :D :D :D :D
@squid lips: see yr point. but you have to admire somebody who can cross-step, smile, and look amazing and happy so the photog can get the shot. when I cross-step it's all I can do to avoid running off the end.
gonna post another one just coz.
@everybody else: don't think the choice is between SF and East Bay. I was thinking more SF vs Costa Rica or Bora Bora or somewhere...
Yeah, maybe you were referring to Costa Rica, Bali, or what ever....but surf aside, SF is still no match in so many other areas. I truly love this city. I may run for mayor or BOS. Daly went to some shit East Bay town a while ago...what a loser.
Piss for mayor 2013
noon fog report: foggy
re: hot as balls East Bay. People only live in Lafayette, Orinda, or M0ragza for the public schools. When the kids are in college they move. Suburbs suck and are economically inefficient: it's costly to maintain the infrastructure with relatively low tax revenue due to low population density and suburbanites waste valuable time while commuting to work.
It's not about the schools it's about the parents. If parents got involved more, and actually gave ONE FUCKING SHIT about their kids, it wouldn't matter WTF school they went to. Right now, it's baby sitting. Sorry for the rant, it's a surf site, wherein you post pics of anal warts on faces, maybe some offsite surf links, and not political statements.
@Cloud, SF vs. Bali is like asking me if I'd rather have a hamburger or steak. Although SF has really made me appreciate bikinis when they do show up on our beaches.
Don't forget the free slurpees at 711 on 7/11
