LOL! My character does indeed live there...have they ever filmed in your area when you were aware of it? They do film on location, there's a site where people who live in SF have posted pictures of them filming there...

I like the show Monk, it is one of my favorite shows. No, they have not filmed here that I know of but a part of the movie "Mrs. Doubtfire" has been filmed here. By close, I meant within driving distance and it takes an hour or two to get there.

How's the parking situation? For that matter, how's the neighborhood? Would you send a 14y-old girl walking to the train station? After dark?

Parking isn't too bad. The neighborhood's OK if you avoid 6th St. north of howard.

I think you had a little flop with the date -- 4/19 is in April.

Sounds fun. Too bad I can't make it. (Although I could have made it if it was 4/19...)

Yes. Yes, I did. Thanks! You mean, your parents won't buy you a plane ticket to go to California to make things for a few hours?

Let's see...18:00 there is 20:00 here... I'll be joining in spirit. At least I'll use that as my excuse to disappear into the shop and claim that I'm in California if anyone calls for me. How long will it last, so I know when to turn off the soldering iron and go to bed?

We'll experiment with setting up some sort of virtual presence. I know Etsy has a great program for doing this sort of thing.

That's what I meant, too...I'd need to move the monitor so I could see those crazy Californians partying all night. I should get my friend to come over. We could build robots and pretend we were at Instructables HQ.
