Here at Muni Diaries, we’re not too proud to admit our frequent weakness for dogs. Put your “muzzle your pet” trigger finger away, because here are nine pups who are way better than humans, ready to make your day, all from the Muni Diaries Instagram submission inbox.
Rock out with your tongue out.
Did you see this elegant harpist at the Montgomery Street station the other day? Another harpist, last seen here, was delighting his fellow commuters on the bus with his mini harp! We’re all for buskers, like this chamber music quartet, this cellist at the 16th Street BART station, and especially this musician with this very unusual instrument.
Thanks to @commutelife for submitting this Muni moment to us on Instagram.
You’re officially an old if you’ve uttered or thought any of these sentences below in the last couple of days:
- “Is a Pikachu a Pokemon?”
- “What is a Pokemon?”
- “From what I understand, the Pokemon game is a virtual reality app.”
- “I thought Pokemon was a cartoon.”
- “What do you get if you find a Pokemon?”
Still, I can’t deny the simple fact that there are indeed Pokemon to be found on Muni, as @allisonrenee_art pointed out. Here’s another one via @aeridea
So there you have it. And if you’re worried about your personal safety while catching Pokemon, here is a great business idea that will help you in your quest!
Because I will always prefer flowers to guns …

You guys just can’t stop with the Muni <3, can you?
WonderlandSF sells these bad boys, and says they still have some available. My birthday is right around the corner, you know?
Here’s a video of the pinewood derby cars racing at the Wonderland store. Wonderland is on 1266 Valencia between 24th and 23rd, so you can go and check it out for yourself.

From the “I Wish I Loved My Job That Much” files comes the story of a Minneapolis bus driver who freaking loves the eff out of her job.
The Star Tribune has more about Angi Stevens, a five-year veteran Metro Transit transit driver:
“It’s been a hit,” said Stevens, 29, of Minneapolis. “Some people think I’m crazy. Others think it’s cool. Many people talk about it. I look down at this and say this is what I do and I’m really good at it.”
Stevens won Minneapolis’ bus “roadeo” (Muni started doing this again recently, btw—see here). The former bartender got the tattoo to celebrate her fifth anniversary driving the bus in Minneapolis. The whole Star Tribune story about Stevens is worth a read.
