    A friend of mine recently tweeted "empty trader joe's parking lot!
    #prius recall"

    I'm sure I'd find that really funny if I knew what the hell a hashtag was. However, I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt ... lol.

    Wait. Does this mean that I am still not a true San Franciscan? I can't remember the last time I waited in a line for something. Maybe y'all need to move to the browner side of town and enjoy our open spaces and relatively line-free existence. Well, there is Bugaloo's, but a Mission-hipster-fluent friend explained to me that people wait in that line on the weekend to show off who they hooked up with the night before. It's like a walk of shame for the lazily prideful fornicators. It certainly can't be because of the food.

    True San Franciscans were born here.

    Some breakfast place in the Mission told us it would be " a three hour wait" with a straight face. my lady responded "so you told the last people 2 hours and 45 minutes and they were okay with it?". The host responded that it was definitely worth it.

    That's so rigid, Matt. Still, my kids don't wait in lines, either. Who knows, maybe they would if given a chance.

    Your lady is amazingly well mannered. I would have responded with laughter or an involuntary "Are you fucking kidding?"

    Those self-same True San Franciscans are probably the least likely to be found waiting on line for food.

    It's my own self serving opinion. Really, transplants are often blinded to the negatives of their new home because they see it as a reflection of who they are. At least in sf I see that a lot. After all, if a place attracts the best and brightest, and you were attracted by it, what does that make you!

    While the rest must just be too dumb to leave.

    Do people really think in those terms? I guess some must. I just like it because it's beautiful, the politics are reasonably aligned with my own, the weather's perfect for me, and it's proximate to a lot of other beautiful stuff. Plus, this is where my house is.

    mordecai, what does a three-hour line look like? I'm having difficulty wrapping my head around this notion.
