I’ve officially been inaugurated in this city. No.. I wasn’t given the keys to the city by the mayor. Nor will I be in any parades soon. But, the city did give me a lovely parking ticket. Who knew you couldn’t park in a crosswalk? Okay, I had a bad feeling about it.. but both of my San Francisco friends assured me I’d be fine. It was a Sunday, and I was parking next to a church. After all, who tickets on a Sunday?

Well.. the way I look at it… it was going to happen sooner or later. Kind of like getting your first ding with a new car. Might as well just get it over with.

Marlene + Parking Ticket = not happy

  1. MARLENE! I don’t know if you remember me, but I lived in Armington B-1 with you sophomore year- on the other side of the bathroom. Anyway, I found your blog from blog hopping through Angela White’s blog. Somehow I ended up here! I have no idea what you’ve been doing in SB for the past 8 years, but I live in CO and I’d give anything to go back there!!!! Are you crazy? You’d better be doing something good. . . Where’s Christina? I think she might be around here somewhere too. Check ya later!

  2. I just love the hospitality! Maybe you could appeal by telling them you’re new to the big city and very naive, having come from the small town of Santa Barbara?

  3. I’m telling you, try the steepest streets possible. Those ticket cops can’t make it up in their electric carts. Now you’re a city girl! We’ll miss you tonight at hg. Might feel more real that you’re really gone.

  4. I got a ticket yesterday!!!! Arg…it was street sweeping and the street was so crowded so I squeezed iin front of another car on the ok side of the street and 1/3 of my hood was in the red…needless to say, Bummer. I guess we will both have to take it in stride! Glad to see your updates! M

  5. Marlene- hope you’re getting more settled- look forward to hearing about the place you find. missed you at HG last night! Will give you a call soon so we can catch up and chat about thailand.
