Re: Nothing surprises me in SF

I saw an interesting experiment in Uni. In some Psyco class we got a slide show of the female form from the back and asked to rate it.

Anybody go to UCLA and have that test?

I was in SF a few months ago and went to Haight Ashbury for the first time since a couple of visits in the more interesting 60s. I was curious to see if I could find an apartment on Haight that I stayed in for a few days in 1969 which, understandably, is now just a hazy memory. The area seemed pretty safe and sane to me -- lots of pretty Victorian Houses, a handful of 60s nostalgia shops, a Ben and Jerry's.

Why is your friend leery of the place?

Now here's one that I may put on a blog but the jist is: I was going to Haight Ashbury this morning and a friend told me he wouldn't go there. Well I never made it, about half way there I walked down Market St. near 7th St. It's evidently the sex center of SF. Well needless to say they start asking what you're looking for and I get accosted by the most persistent gay dude on earth and he walks along with me. I nearly started running. Damn
You need to develop that NYC stern and mean look to keep those suckers at bay. I am glad I'm getting out of this city cause these stories don't seem to phase me much.
Although, I only spent about 3 weeks many years ago, I always thought SF was my kinda town, a smaller, quieter version of NYC.

vagaond, yep.
12 yo and hot beyond hot.

I agree with the SF and NYC comparison. I spent several months in NYC in 1976 and SF seems like a slightly less hot version of that city.

Yup. I once lived down the hill from you, on "lower Nob Hill," as I liked to think of it. More accurately, on the edge of the Tenderloin.

Great city.

Re: Nothing surprises me in SF

bpp,
I cursied down Polk St. thru the Tenderloin and man was there some wacko's out. I've been in a lot of places but SF is interesting in terms of perverse people. Old hippies, nut cakes, etc. I'm lovin it.

A freind of mine who warned about Haight is so straight and conservative he thinks Rush Limburger is too liberal.

Me, I think Howard Stern is part of the Pat Robertson religious crusade.

Different outlooks.



Hey HA,
I coined a term while living in England. The young girls there I called "tartlets". If they could get pregnant at 14 and have the baby just at 15 years old the government would give them a flat (apt) and a stipend. So, almost every lower middle class family wanted their daughter out of the cramped little homes and it was very common to see pregnant 13-14 year olds.


Queen Vickie would have been appalled. Shocking.

By the way, the girls didn't need the dad to get the flat and money, so the girls just bugged some guy to get em pregnant. Our system in the US is way behind.

I guess that's one way to raise the payroll tax receipts for Social Security & Medicare. There's gotta be a flaw!

LL,
Amazingly, I worked 40 years without every being in hospital. Retire and can't seem to do anything to survive.

But be careful out there.

Martha,
I quit carrying that toilet seat several months back.

Spent the day up a UCSF. Good to see some students will get to see my privates again.

I guess having a manicurist and private "hair" might be in order out here in the land of the fruits and nuts.

OAP

Good grief OAP, the tacos did that to you? I think I'll lay off the mexican food for a while. Take care of yourself and find some young nursing student to help you around SF
