We stayed overnight in the bay area last night to spent some more time in san francisco today. We started off with brunch in chinatown, shopped a little there, and then went and hung out in golden gate park. Most of our time in the park was spent walking around in the arboretum, and we left sf at around 3pm.


One of the things we bought in chinatown was a small metal airsoft gun and a bottle of one thousand 6mm BBs for $13. The gun was originally listed $15 and the pack of BBs was $6.

When the store manager asked what we were interested in, we said we were just looking around. She then said, “tell me what you want, and I give you special price. In morning, we give special price.”

Though we got $8 off, we probably still got ripped off.


While we were walking around in the arboretum, we passed by a squirrel that was obviously interested in exploring a trash can nearby, but was waiting for us to walk away before doing so.

My brother and I walked away from the squirrel, but kept our eyes on it. When it was confident that we were no longer threats, it dived into the trash can to plunder it, but at the same time I quietly snuck up to the trash can and looked inside.

The squirrel was pretty much buried in the can, looking for food, with only its tail sticking up out of the trash. When it finally emerged with a chip in its mouth, I went, “Boo!”, and gave it a scare. Startled, it jumped into the branches above, and began eating the chip.

We should have recorded it. Twas a pretty funny sequence of events. Here’s a photograph of the squirrel.
