More San Diego

We took the hotel's shuttle downtown for $3. The first shuttle's drive  ha  to go to the bathroom. When she came out, she said her wheelchair lift was broken. The next shuttle came and it took forever to get her chair strapped up.

We got off near the marine museum. We walked to Balboa Park through Park Blvd. Just north of the high school is a homeless hangout.

Balboa Park was beautiful. The building were exquisite. On the way back we walked through Little Italy. We ate at a seafood restaurant and I had a 2.5 pound lobster! Then we walked along the water back to the hotel.

In San Diego

For lunch, we ate by the water on Harbor Island. I had tons of lobster and found the staff to be very nice.

We then walked to Old Town along San Diego Bay. We saw visited one part that housed  psychiatric ward across the street from Dirt Cheap Rental Cars and a liquor store.

Old Town had cool old buildings, but was so ridiculously touristy. It was catered to families. We didn't stay long.

We charged Candace's wheelchair in a Starbucks and had a nice long walk back to the hotel.

DC to San Diego

At BWI, we were asked to take off our belts in order to go through security. While I was in the scanning machine, a TSA agent asked me to "pull up my wasteband." I thought: Why'd you ask we to take off my belt if didn't want my pants to fall down!

We flew Southwest. They have a policy that you cant wait in line for the front bathroom, which meant there was no way I could go, because I'd have to climb over two people and race somebody to have any chance of going. It was  ridiculous. The terrorists have done a really shitty job killing Americans or threatening our nation's existence, but they've succeeded in making us lokking stupid with all of our silly hypocritical new rules.

Our hotel was just accross the street fromnthe airport, but we had trouble finding a pedestrian walkway. We made it, but I was quickly disappointed. The Sheraton has lots of amenities and spacious rooms, but we don't take advantage of amenities and we're small people, so we don't need a big room. I'd rather have a fridge, a microwave, and a bidet. Basically, I'd rather be in Japan.

The only offers Gatorade for $4.50, a candy bar for $3.50, and a liter of water for $9! I wouldn't pay that much for water if it was laced with the late Theodore Bikel's sweat.

We then walked to Petco Park to watch the Giants face the Padres. There were so many Giants fans, it must've felt like a home game for them.

In the park, there are two elevators with giants sign that say give people with disabilities priority. Instead, a group of jerkoffs skipped the line and jumped on the elevator. I yelled at them about it and told them to get off. A mothe  with her young daughter started to get off, but they weren't at fault, it wa  the froup behind them. They didn't get off. I walked away suggesting that they learn to read.

Just then the other elevator opened up and we actually beat the first elevator tobthe upperdeck. Justice! I turned and told them, "And we beat you!"

The scoreboard was really into the fact that San Diego isvin the state of California. It shiwed "California girls" an  there was Hotel California karaoke among other things.

On the walk home, we noticed lots of lights. Many were red, white, and blue. Judging by the paterns they could've been for France in the wake of the Nice attack. There weren't any commemorations for Turkey in the wake of the dead coup attempt.

Conan is apparently hosting his show from Comic Con soon. His face is everywhere. San Diegans do not ja walk, which is weird. They don't anticipate lights changing and they walk slowly, even compared to me.
