    LOL

    It may help to imagine a drum beating out "DUM DUM" when the image appears on your screen.

    I drive a manual, curb my wheels, park in first and put on the brake. It doesn't even occur to me not to curb my wheels.

    I think you can still get a ticket for not tweeting or posting on Facebook about your parking spot. FYI.

    i'm not much of a foie guy. i've certainly had some great dishes, but it's not something I go out of my way to eat.

    I'm stumped as to what to do when on a flat street. Do I turn in or turn out? What if I'm on an imperceptible grade? Do I need a pencil to test each road I park on? Matt, how do you park when running into the Tartine Bakery?

    Speaking of which, what's with the hatred of sugar on the part of dessert bakers or ice cream makers here. I had to pour sugar on a pint of three twins ice cream just to make it taste like something you'd want for dessert.

    duh - you didn't get the memo? Sweet desserts are no good no more. If someone asks you if you like dessert, the correct answer nowadays is "Yes. But I don't like sweet desserts"

    I don't go to the Mission much, and certainly not to Tartine. Problem solved.

    I've mounted a 6' spirit level on the hood of my car for rapid determination of inclination.

    Yes, but I don't like sweet jesus.
