Finding Living in the O

15 Oct

So one of the fun parts about writing a blog is you get to see how people stumbled onto your blog. There are a lot of predictable search terms that lead people to my blog – Rebecca Kaplan, Oakland, medical marijuana, people searching for a comparison of San Francisco and Oakland, etc. But then there are those few searches that stand out. Here are a few of my favorites from this week:

  • taking down campaign signs in oakland,ca: I can’t help but assume this person was so frustrated with the creepy Kerry Hamill signs, that s/he wanted to find out how to take them down.
  • why doesn’t bart run all night: I asked this same question last year (though now I’m less interested in this and more interested in making all night bus service more frequent and extensive).
  • free marijuana oakland: This just made me laugh. Does someone really think free marijuana can be found anywhere? Sorry, you’re not going to find that information here.
  • finds love while waiting for the bus: This may be my favorite search ever. Though I’m not looking for love, if I was, I think it would be incredibly romantic to find it while waiting for a bus.

    Maybe they mean free, as in speech, rather than free, as in cheeseburger (though even free cheeseburgers are getting harder to come by these days).

    I still wish we could get some action on running BART all night. If I’m in the city, 9 times out of 10 it’s to do something that lasts until after midnight. I’d make at least 70% of those trips by BART, if not more, if I could just BART back again. I don’t like or trust the bus.
