Get 'Round the Square
The bells are ringing
The song they're singing
The sound is bringing the people 'round
They hear the instructions
They follow directions
They travel great distances to the sound
-They Might Be Giants
Today was the Cable Car Bell Ringing Contest, which was a blast. ^_^ Straight to the pictures!
Before the professionals had their shot local tv and radio personalities gave it a go, with the top prize being $1000 to their favorite charity. I think this fella was a traffic reporter.
Here is a video of the runner up, Byron Cobb. I got to shake his hand before his performance--a really nice guy, and a character to boot. I'm sorry the video is sideways, I wanted to get as much of him in frame as possible, and I can't turn it due to technical difficulties. T_T
A San Francisco icon--the bellman for a hotel that's right next to Union Square, where the competition is held. That's the uniform, can you believe it? He looked so hot, the poor guy.
This fella was awful hot, too.
And here is our winner, Ken Lunardi. He was very very good, but I think if Byron was last instead of first he may have won.
Other news for the day--put in some job applications! One is at... let's call it Coffee Shop A. I love the brand--some of the best tea I've had in a chain ever--but it is a rather crowded bus ride away. They will be opening stores downtown in the coming months, so I may be able to transfer. Another is at Coffee Shop B, which is a mere three blocks from my apartment, and is looking for a local to come in full time. I kinda hope they don't need someone to open, which means coming in at 4:15 am. >_< That means I'd have to be asleep by like, 8 pm! Travesty. :P The third is at a housewares store downtown, maybe a 10 minute walk away. All offer benefits, all seem nice... wish me luck!
