Friday, February 7th, 2014

But you might need to prepare yourself for more of this:

You’ll have to find new places to park pretty soon. (I can already guess at the new places where all the urban campers are going to go.)

Here’s the reaction from The Richmond District Blog.

Appears As If the SFPD of Park Station Has a Crackdown Against the Car Sleepers of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

It generally looks like this scene from yesterday night, with three prowlers on hand to handle one set of sleepy-headed car sleepers:

Or so it seems.

Don’t know why…

How the SFPD Can Tell You’re Sleeping in Your Car on the Streets of San Francisco

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

All right, let’s see here.

Hint #1 is the way your ride is sitting on its haunches like a dog, like you removed the engine and put it in the trunk. Like you and your bud have flopped down the back seats to turn your Subie into a rolling motel, right near Haight- Ashbury.

Hint #2 is the way your ride, unlike the others on the block, is all fogged up inside because you refuse to crack your windows a bit because you don’t want people coming into your car at night to get at you or your collection of contraband / stolen goods / lifestyle accessories what’s also tucked away in the back of your red Subie.

Now the cops of the Haight might not mess with you or anything, you know, ’cause they have bigger fish to fry, but they knows what you’re up to.

They knows.

How to Live in San Francisco Rent-Free for the Long Term – Just Get Yourself an RV, No Problem

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

Eventually, NIMBY homeowners, who, you know, have nothing against you personally but they just want you gone gone gone, will contact the authoritahs and here’s what they’ll do. They’ll send somebody over to knock on your door to see what you’re up to.

And here’s what you’ll do: NOTHING. And then the cops will leave. Easy peasy.

Eventually, you’ll get a colony going, you’ll be trading tips and laughing at the uptight NIMBY homeowners, you know, those impotent people.

You’ll be there for years, saving all kinds of money on rent, utilities and whatnot.

“Pierre the Penguin: A True Story” Launches at CalAcademy – The Best Book Reading Ever

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

Wetsuits and and live animals – that’s what all book readings should have. And that’s the way it was this morning at our California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park when the new book Pierre the Penguin: A True Story made its debut.

And the reviews are in.

The bird himself, back when he needed a jacket:

After a thumbs up from the kids…

..it was time for a penguin feeding:

And there he is, famous Pierre, in the middle. His feathers growed back…

…so he no longer has a need for his wetsuit:

Here are the deets:

“When Pierre – an elderly penguin at the California Academy of Sciences – begins to go bald, the staff is worried. Without his feathers, Pierre is too cold to swim. He also looks different from the rest of the colony, so the other penguins begin to pick on him. Academy biologists try every treatment in the books to prompt new feather growth, but none of the traditional strategies work. Finally, aquatic biologist Pam Schaller has an idea: why not fit the shivering bird with a neoprene wetsuit to keep him warm? She designs a tiny wetsuit especially for Pierre, but will it work? Told in rhyme by noted I SPY author Jean Marzollo, and paired with gorgeous paintings from acclaimed wildlife artist Laura Regan, this inspirational true story comes to life.”

This tome will be on sale at the CalAcademy.

Your next chance to get in on the fun will be at one of the upcoming Penguins and Pajamas.

Penguins and Pajamas – Stay Overnight With Your Kid at the California Academy of Sciences!

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Oh it’s on! Grab a slot on one of these upcoming Friday nights, June 18, July 16, or August 13, 2010, and then head over to our fantastic California Academy of Sciences with your kid for an overnighter.

It’s a Night at the Museum, baby! Check it:

“Participants can take in the evening songs of the rainforest birds, sing “twinkle twinkle” to a sea star at the Discovery Tidepool, and watch the fish cruise under the moonlight in the Philippine Coral Reef tank. Then, guests can catch a special penguin talk, and become stargazing gurus during an after-hours planetarium show.

“Before bedtime, sleepover guests can grab a snack of cookies and milk and settle in for story time, featuring “Pierre the Penguin,” the true story of the Academy’s famous wetsuit-wearing penguin. When the lights go out, participants can unroll their sleeping bags in African Hall, next to the swaying kelp of the California Coast tank, or even at the Swamp window, face-to-face with Claude, the albino alligator. In the morning, it’s time to rise and shine, then head over to the Academy Café for breakfast before the sleepover event ends at 8:30 am.”

If you’re an Academy Member, then all this is just $99 per kid aged six and up.

Be sure to take along your pigiami del pinguino, you know, something like this:

That’s the way San Francisco property owners do things using Municipal Police Code Section 25. A sign like this tells the cops that the person hanging out on private property hasn’t been given permission.

Distribution of “No Trespassing” Signs July 2008: The Community Guides distributed the “No Trespassing” signs to merchants,building security/concierge, and street-level businesses. The signs request enforcementof the Municipal Police Code Section 25 to all the street level businesses.After signing the forms, the merchants, street-level tenants and property representatives displayed the notices on the windows of their business and other visible places,  they do not give anyone permission to sleep, lie, or in any way remain in their doorway. These notices help SFPD and Community Guides address issues of sleepers and campers inside ofdoorways. The notice expires every six months

See? This one is similar:
