1. [livejournal.com profile] oyceter, sorry, when I took a shower this morning one of the sliding doors fell off. I propped it against the wall. Also, can you please pop the postcards I left on the bed in with your outgoing mail?

2. While walking near the SF Fisherman's Wharf, I passed what, out of the corner of my eyes, looked like a shrubbery. Then it leaped to its feet, waving the leafy branches it had been crouched behind and shouting. I was quite startled. Especially since, eight years ago when I was there doing disaster relief for El Nino, I saw the same tree dude terrorizing tourists. I suppose it could be a different tree dude, but can one city really contain two men who disguise themselves as shrubs to frighten passersby?

3. I also saw a bride in full gown and veil, but with tennis shoes and a ratty sweater pulled over the gown, running down the street sobbing. One of the people with her explained that she had been jilted at the altar. Ouch.

Are you absolutely sure you're living in real life and not wandering in and out of various people's movies? Because the proportion of weird things that happen to you are highly suspicious.

This entire entry falls under the category "These things would only happen to Rachel." Especially #2.

Actually, #2 didn't surprise me at all: the shrubbery guy is a fairly well-known feature at FW.

#3, though, sounds like performance art. Does that really happen?

The Bush Guy! Oh, Bush Guy.

And, ouch to the jilted bride. I thought that only happened on TV.

Amen. I kind of want to punch whoever she was supposed to be marrying, even if I don't know the whole story.

Ditto. Geez, poor lady.

I don't understand how, if you're considering breaking up with someone, you let it get that far.

What were you doing, that you broke [livejournal.com profile] oyceter's shower? o_0

I didn't think (3) even happened outside the movies.

I've seen the bush guy. Thankfully, someone warned me about him before I got scared to death. And poor bride. :>(

The tree dude is out there all the time. The apartment I'm moving out of this week is 1 block from his favorite hangout. I wouldn't be surprised actually if there was a clan of tree dudes, or a guild or something, with a Scaring Tourists newsletter.

Ah, the infamous Bush Man. I'm pretty sure he's only there to scare tourists, especially since he's at Fisherman's Wharf which is a touristy area

One can only hope that the groom who jilted her at the alter is the shrub-scary-scary guy, or perhaps some ingrate who busts shower doors. She may never know how lucky she was, but the universe will know.

I'm just surprised she changed her shoes and grabbed a ratty sweater. why did she have a ratty sweater with her at her wedding?

walking around Lake Merritt about 7 years ago I found myself catching up to a woman in a wedding dress and veil. She walked slowly. Her clothes were trailing on the ground behind her, filthy and torn in places. She had long black hair. Her veil covered her face. There are (were) old fashioned green lamp posts around the lake. Every time she arrived at one she'd genuflect.

It was daylight, but she seemed like a ghost from a gothic horror.

I swear, life exists to provide you memoir opportunities. Damn.

Is it sad that my first reaction to #3 was to laugh and quote Julia Roberts?
