Nobody bugs her there – the people at the store know not to.
Isn’t that nice?

This voter waited a bit for a chance to meet San Francisco royalty:
Plenty of Giants fans are still showing their colors today:
Appears as if the Newsoms are signed up to be vote-by-mailers, so they had to vote provisionally today, AFAIK. (I should be up-to-speed on this issue but I’m not. But logically, you can’t vote at the precinct and also by mail, so they let you vote and then check to see if your ballot arrives in the post.)
A Kennedy-esque scene at precinct 3808:
And all the while, dude here is just down the street watching the media circus travel back and forth.
(For some reason contractors are all over Upper Terrace these days, building and rebuilding houses everywhere.)
The Newsoms then took off for an 11-hour non-stop day.
They’ll most likely be rewarded with good news after 8:00 PM tonight…
Will this famous fam make a move to the tiny Town of Ross up in Marin County?
“My unconfirmed rumor is that they are now renting in Tiburon, while building a house in Ross. I guess they did not buy Sean Penn’s property there. They have been spotted attending the local theater in Tiburon.”
That’s the best rumor I’ve heard, anyway. It has the verisimilitude, n0n?
Worthy of note is this section from Coit Tower’s first floor shown below. Click to expand:
See how respectful everybody is of the paparazzi (Italian for “photojournalists”) rushing in avec tripod to make a little money off tragedy? That’s quite different from these days, when you can get Bjorked for simply saying hello.
Nowadays, if you point a camera at Seal (Mr. Heidi Klum) and try to greet him, he might ask why he would “shake hands with scum.” Ouch.
And whatever you do, don’t try snapping photos of Matthew McConaughey while he surfs down in Malibu. Cause the Malibu Pump House Gang just might mass up and take you out. (And let’s not even talk about Barbra Streisand’s place down there. By all means, shutterbugs, stay out of Malibu!)
Old Matt McC. must really hate the paps, as he cameo’ed in the dreadful Mel Gibson movie Paparazzi (directed by Mel’s hairstylist from Lethal Weapon!) back in ought-four. In fact, lots of stars must hate the paps, given the large number of famous people who appeared in this “amazingly arrogant, immoral film.”
But some of the less famous actually dream about being followed around by a paparazzo. So much so, that they even pay for the privilege. And you can do it also now that Celeb For A Day has a San Francisco office. It’s only $500 for half hour of snapping, so sign up today and bring back the happy times when everybody got along with the paparazzi. Hurray!
