Read and learn about the past and present NASA insignias.

Whenever I ask permission to buzz the tower, Air Boss Johnson is all, “That’s a negative, Ghost Rider. The pattern is full.” You know, or some other excuse. I hate when that happens.

Someday, I’ll be Air Boss.

It sits looking

INTRODUCTORY NOTES: “I’d like to open my remarks with a humorous anecdote. The official bird of San Francisco isn’t the California Quail! It’s actually the crane. [Pause for gasps and puzzled looks.] The _construction_ crane! “[ Pause to wait for the applause to die down, to enjoy the smiles of onlooking Walter Wong and Rose Pak, to bask in glory of being appointed by that guy who got appointed by that guy who got appointed by Willie Brown, to exult in being an obedient figurehead girl who does exactly what Downtown tells her to do.

The People Behind the New, “New Market” “NeMa” Building are Unusual – Meet the Chief Designer

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

I’ll tell you, the marketing for the NeMA Building is strange, man.

And the people behind it are the strangest to hit town ever.

Check it, here and here.

Now it’s time to “meet The Designer“ 

Don’t click to expand

Oh wait, somebody Photoshopped Soviet rocket engineer Sergei Korolev, the so-called “Chief Designer,” into the shot.

Aw, that’s not right!

Now here we go, the real shot, the Chief Designer of the NeMa: ”Step Inside the NEMA North Tower Two-Bedroom Model with Interior Designer Liza Evans.”

But who are the other people, the dramatic people? IDK.

All right, now let’s sell some units here:

“Q: Name 3 Feng Shui tips you’d give someone moving into the 2 BDR+Den model floor plan in the new North Tower.”

OK fine.

I’ll tell you, Old Market Street didn’t have any of the feng shui.

Good luck in the Twitterloin, NeMA!

I bought at NeMA
I live on the second floor
I live upstairs from you
Yes I think you’ve seen me before
