I’m doing something really fun today at 5 p.m., but before I tell you what it is, I’ve got to thank Muni for hooking me up:

Two Fridays ago, I was on the 27 with a friend when a man got on the bus with an arm load of dry cleaning he just picked up. With one hand holding his cell phone to his ear and the other holding his dry cleaning, the man casually hung his clothes on the metal hand rail and sat in front of us, the whole time talking on his cell. My friend and I thought it was a really cute and funny thing to do, and this made us and another passenger chuckle. This passenger took out his cell phone to take a few pictures of the laundry hanging in front of us, so of course I told him all about Muni Diaries and asked him to send me the photos, which we posted here.

The passenger, Mike, turned out to be a writer who was on his way to Pirate Cat Radio to talk about his work. Later that evening, I found that Mike had told Pirate Cat Radio’s Pam Benjamin about Muni Diaries, and Pam was kind enough to email me to introduce herself.

And today at 5 p.m., I’ll be at Pirate Cat Cafe talking to Pam and Diamond Dave on their program, Common Threads, about Muni Diaries! How meta is that? Please listen if you get the chance.
