Bus Report #118

The Masshole was on the bus today, with only two thirds of his skateboard. The wheels were gone, too, and the bottom third of the board was missing. It looked like it had gotten in an accident and was completely sheared off, raggedly. Poor Masshole.
The 38 Geary was incredibly crowded, which was weird because the bus was actually early. I stood for a while, then folded myself into a rear seat between two large women with even larger tote bags.
Ran like a crazy person for the 22 Fillmore, which was nice and empty. The driver waited for the mom with the two daughters and for some of the other regulars.
The All-Star Hotel on 16th and Folsom is getting as face-lift, and there was an article in the paper about it the other day. The lovely pink paisley design on the outside of the hotel is courtesy of a local muralist.
The hotel is going to be supportive housing, and got a grant from our mayor's Care Not Cash Program (I think, don't quote me on this!)
It will be nice if they fix up the building. It looks so sad right now.
Sad, but pretty with the pink designs.
