Apropos of nothing, a peek into my disturbing thought process. Also, Downton Abbey.

This is totally irrelevant and I don't even know why I'm posting this but you know in the opening credits for Downton Abbey when there's a shot of a skinny feather duster of some kind gently dusting a chandelier or whatever?


For the first two seasons or so, I thought that was a CAT'S PAW.  I know.  Take a minute.  I wasn't really thinking about "Why would a cat be lovingly caressing the light fixtures in this English mansion?" or "How would a cat be able to reach a chandelier?" or "Why are you so fucking weird?"  I didn't really think about it until I realized not that long ago that it was a duster of some kind and not a cat's paw.

Anyway, that's about it for now.  Not every blog post can be about overpriced real estate and get 15,000 views!  This one should be good for about 43.  If you're one of the 43, THANKS.

Have a nice weekend.

My disturbing thought process confession concerns the Dyson vacuum cleaner commercial. Until very recently I always thought the guy was saying the vacuum "doesn't use suction," instead of "doesn't lose suction." It perplexed me to no end that a vacuum didn't use suction. What could it use instead?

It would also be weird because every so often they work the dog into a shot, but they have never shown a cat (to my knowledge), so you'd have to assume that the credits included both a dog and a cat but the cat is, for some reason, never heard from again -- just that one credits shot.

Andrea -

That's a really good one! I guess everyone has these kind of things.

GG -

Yeah, seeing Isis is always a highlight at our house.

I haven't watched all the episodes in order, but rather dipped into them at different times with different people, which is no way to watch a soap opera. Some friends are streaming it from the English feed in the future, so I saw the current season's finale, which made for very awkward and confused spoilers when watching last night's episode...


In other news, is this why you have "0" days since the last MUNI accident up? http://sf.streetsblog.org/2014/02/07/watch-n-judah-riders-lift-car-out-of-the-way-of-their-train/

Tam - No, there was a cable car accident on the 6th. While I enjoyed that video, it's not technically a Muni "accident," right?

That is true. I once sat on a jury for a cable car "accident" actually; the subject matter did not make it more interesting to sit and sit.
