‘We only have The Examiner’


Yeah, so, last week mighty, mighty good man David and I had breakfast at Manor Coffee Shop in West Portal. If you haven’t eaten there, you should get on that. Four words: Hawaiian. Bread. French. Toast. Right?!

While we were there, a man came in and sat at a table. He asked for a cup of coffee and the newspaper. The waitress said, “We only have The Examiner.”

“I’d rather have no newspaper than The Examiner. Just the coffee then.”

Seriously. That happened.


[Editor’s note: I used to work for The Examiner from 2000-2006, but quit because the bosses were worse than Hitler. However, I have been known to return and write the celebrity gossip column, Scoop, when their writer goes on vacation.]

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  2. The Manor is awesome. But there’s no such thing as Hawaiian bread. It’s Portuguese. Just like the “ukulele.”

Leave a comment, you guys. It's fun!
