My Global Initiative for 2008: Update

Filed under: Humor — missedmanners @ 4:48 pm

This is a follow-up to this post: https://missedmanners.wordpress.com/2008/01/10/my-global-initiative-for-2008/

A while ago I went out west to visit my best friend. She lives in Los Gatos, California. Apparently if you live within eight hours of San Francisco you can tell everyone that you live there. Kind of like how people who live in Jersey put down New York, NY as their network on Facebook. Which annoys me to no end. You live in Bergen County for the sake of Pete, not the Upper Upper West West side.

Anyway, when I was out there hanging out I decided this was a perfect chance to put my new Global Initiative into action. If you don’t feel like clicking the link above and reading through it here’s a tl;dr summary for you:

People who take pictures in front of landmarks are boring nuisances.

I’m of the mind that to be called boring is the worst insult imaginable. I allocate the b-word more bile than the c-word, d-word and especially the e-word (egret, for example, you are a dirty egretfucker). Boring people are a drain on society and moreover, my time.

So here are my pictures from my trip out west.


This is a picture of pointing in the general direction of Alcatraz.


This is a picture of me looking away from, but thinking about, the Golden Gate Bridge.


This is a picture of the garbage can at the bottom of Lombard Street.


This is me contemplating the Lonely Cyprus near Pebble Beach. I am wearing only one shoe (not pictured).


And finally, this is a picture of me at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, pretending to be a fish.

  2. I live in DC and we get that whole “I live in Washington” thing from people who have to drive an hour on a good day to get into town.

    Every time you post pictures of yourself, you look practically like a different person…and you are a cutie. In the picture with the trash can, you kind look like you are waiting for a sex pickup person to show-up but at the top of Lombard street rather than the bottom.

    I’m becoming a little concerned for your well-being as you seem to get photographed at trash cans with surprising frequency…unless you are feeding the homeless with what you find in said trash cans. I’m ok with charity.
