four times. aww yeah.
i was just noodling through the best of craigslist, and to my surprise, my free oatmeal giveaway, along with the photo illustrations i took, made the "best of" list.
yay! that makes FOUR POSTS of mine in that section.
the first one, from thursday, december 13, 2001, was posted after drinking some of the strongest coffee i have ever had. at the time, i was working at the stormy leather factory in the accounting department, down in the gritty, somewhat scary, pitbull and burned-out car infested bayview/hunter's point district. i bought the coffee at one of those taco trucks that roam the neighborhood. trust me, they're the safest bet. i miss working there, though. i got to dress like this when i went to work:
the second one, from friday, march 22, 2002, was in response to something that really pissed me off while riding the n-judah that morning. i really did trip that kid. this particular post resulted in my in-box jammed with over 700 e-mails from bbw's all over the world. i actually knew a few of them, and they had no idea it was me who wrote that.
for illustrative purposes, here's a picture i took on the n-judah one night:
the third one, from tuesday, july 1, 2003, was in response to a woman who asked, "am i out of line for not returning a call to some guy who called my cellphone 27 times in an hour?" i composed it with my laptop while sitting on the toilet one morning totally half-asleep (i love wireless internet). i hadn't even had my coffee yet. scary.
now, if you're wondering who terilyn joe is after reading that post, she was a news anchor here on KGO-TV channel 7, later moving to KNTV-TV channel 11 in san jose. she had HUGE hair, LOTS of makeup, and looked like a scary drag queen half the time. i loved her. but she eventually fell from grace after angrily throwing eggs and tomatoes at maintenance workers removing ivy from her russian hill apartment building.
no, really. it happened. i do miss her, though.
this was her official KGO staff photo:
of course, after her little stunt she pulled, she was fair game for anything. i present to you, makeover fun with terilyn joe!!! it's from metroactive.com:
oh terilyn, where have you gone?
