As much as we want your eyeballs on this post, seriously get away from the computer right freaking now. It is amazingly springlike in San Francisco, and should be all weekend, including possible showers on Sunday.

Still with us? Okay. Earlier this week on Muni Time Capsule, Eric Fischer’s photo of an old streetcar dressed in cable car clothes, and on a street that was never part of a streetcar route, had some of us scratching our heads and admiring at the same time. Perplexing stuff.

Did you know that Muni Diaries has a Facebook page? If not, check it out and never be without your daily dose of Muni this and Muni that. We’re also on Twitter. Speaking of, this week saw the debut of a new MD feature: Meanwhile, on @munidiaries, where we’ll be compiling the best tweets and twitpics of the week every Thursday.
