Past The Mission . . .

And the "Smooth Move Of The Day" Award goes to Just Jon!

I knew it was bound to happen at some point.

This morning on my way to work I was so engrossed in reading an article on my phone that I missed the transfer point and forgot to get off the bus.

By the time I realized I had missed my stop, it was too late and the bus was already barreling down the street.

I have often complained that some of the bus routes take forever in this City because the buses stop at almost every corner.

Of course, today's bus was not on one of those routes. It was going to be several long blocks before I would have the opportunity to get off the bus and walk back to the stop I needed.

I can't help but laugh at myself when I do stupid things like this.

Now the real embarrassing part of this story is what I was reading when I missed my stop.

I was deeply involved in my Google search for Taylor Jacobson and why she was fired from The Rachel Zoe Project on Bravo TV.

What can I say? I have a real sense of what important news is!

  1. Oh Jon. So silly. And I loved that one of your tag categories for this entry is 'dumb'
    I don't watch the Rachel Zoe Project but now your loyal readers must know - why was Taylor let go?

  2. Gosh Jon I just sent an article to Jacqueline that was in some magazine about places to get great sweets in SF and they listed a few donut shops in the Mission. They sounded awesome.

  3. Sean and Erin -

    So Taylor is legally not allowed to tell her side of the story because of confidentiality agreements. We may never hear both sides.

    As for the tag "Dumb," I was curious what else I may have classified as "Dumb" over the last two years so I clicked on it and they happen to be some of my favorite posts. Especially "And We're Rollin" the one about rolling down the grass hill and getting dizzy.

    Good times being "Dumb."


  4. and "we're rolling", is my favorite post of all.
