The Larkspur Hotel

Whenever I look for a hotel I always consider two very important factors. One, the hotel should well fit my budget without bankrupting me or that the hotel price will be reasonable enough. Two, the hotel must be close to the venues that I plan to visit.

I've been wanting to visit San Francisco now and see that marvellous Golden Gate Bridge but San Francisco offers more than just that. I especially love the Union Square, the third most largest shopping centre in the United States! Since my interest rotates around shopping I looked for a hotel that is near the Union Square and I found Larkspur Hotel Union Square!

It certainly fits my first and second criteria in finding a hotel to stay in. It's definitely one of the most inexpensive hotels that are surrounded by San Francisco's finest theatres, restaurants, shopping centres, and attractions. It's also just a half block from the Powell Street Cable Car which you can hop on to see more of what San Francisco has to offer. Larkspur San Francisco is the best hotel that fits my budget and my needs. Other hotels in the same area where access to everything is convenient will have prices that skyrockets.

So let's get down to the nitty-gritty and discuss the basic amenities and accommodations of this hotel. Larkspur Union Square is just like any other hotels but it offers more bang for the buck! I especially love the fact that they have complimentary wireless internet as most hotels charge for internet connection. The Larkspur is also pet friendly and it's great that you can wake up and enjoy a great cup of Starbucks coffee and a great continental breakfast, and everything is complimentary. That sure is an enticing way to start the day and go out and explore San Francisco.

Ways To Be Rude on the Phone

I highly recommend this self-help book to all the rude people in the world who I think are pitiful because they didn't grow up with parents or guardians who should have thought them social etiquette and courtesy. Maybe this is because their parents or guardians were also rude and disrespectful in the first place. Such a shame.

There are so many rude people and there are so many rude gestures and acts but I would want to focus on how to be rude while on the phone. I wanted to make this list because I had several encounters with several rude customers talking on the phone while they order but not as rude as this one. Imagine, here comes this black person come in through the door yapping on his phone. I greet him he's still busy yapping on the phone. I wait for him to finish his conversation or ask the person on the other line to hold but that never happens. I start to do some other thing other than waste my time waiting for him talking on the phone. Then he tells me what he wants without even saying please or whatever then I punch it in and asks him for clarification what he wanted because he doesn't speak English that well, he might be from Africa or something. Moments later he comes back he comes back telling me that I made a mistake and then I tell him that I asked him two times but he wouldn't listen to me because his phone was stuck to his ear for some strange reason. He then tells me, "You shouldn't talk to me like that I'm a customer bla bla bla" and threatened me that I'd lose my job. Actually I didn't take this seriously because losing my job at Tim Hortons won't be an earth shattering event. Even the other customers told me that I was right for telling that black guy off that if he wasn't talking on the phone his order would have turned out right.

Phones were invented to facilitate better communication between two people and to bridge the distance between them. But if phones will make you lose your ability to communicate and interact with the people already around you then phones become a nuissance rather than a tool to improve our lives.

So here are some of the things that you can do to be rude on the phone and make people around you think that you are important or something:

1. Talk on the phone while ordering and make everyone in the line and the person taking your order to wait for you to finish whatever you are doing.
2. When on the phone, make sure that you talk loud enough for everyone to hear your conversation. It would be even better if you turn on the loud speakers. People will really get the attention.
3. When you are talking with someone and the phone rings, make sure to answer the phone even if it is unimportant and make sure to apologize to the one who called you for taking time to pick up the phone and completely ignore the person who you were talking to in front of you.
4. Make sure that your ring tone is at the maximum level of loudness and never put your phone in silent mode when you are in the movies, church, and while you are in class or board meetings.
5. Scream and completely lose it when someone says excuse me to you and talk to you while you are on the phone. How dare they interrupt you!
6. Always be sure to talk on the phone while you drive or do anything else. Every one else can just move out of your way and give you more consideration because you're on the phone.

Oh! And for the person who fits the Number 6 on the list this one's for you:

In the Mall

I'm in the mall right now because I don't have anything better to do, LOL! No it's actually a case of a bad breakfast gathering turned bad. Well let's just say that we decided to have burnch to early but it doesn't matter really. I love hanging out with these guys.

I'm in the library and I'm just aimlessly wandering through the netr like I always do even when I'm at home and I've decided to make a blog post after hoping to some of my my blogger friend's blogs.

I actually don't like going to the library or even go to the mall for that matter because I'm a bit of an antisocial (surprised?). I said a bit not full blown antisocial.

Anyhow, I guess that this post will be a bit on the side of nonesense but at least it's better than some posts on the net that are clearly sponsored because there is no feeling or thought put into the post. Well this post don't have any though put into it like most of my posts but at least it has feelings right?

Anyhow, maybe I'll just let the time pass by watching some anime.

Every Moment - Joy Williams



You just got to live the taste of David Archuleta! I actually found out about this song from David`s blog and I fell in love with it the first time I heard it. David and I sure have the same taste in music and I do hope that he recommends more music because I`m pretty sure that there are more wonderful music out there that is really wonderful waiting to be discovered by me.

I love this song because it has so many emotions in it and the song moves every fibre of my being.

Yes, we can never get back or undo the things that we have done, words we have said, things that we have failed to do, or moments that we allowed to pass by because as I`ve said before, "Time waits for no one".

I also especially love this AMV (Anime Music Video)! I just love Tsubasa Chronicles! You already know that I'm an Anime Freak but I only go for animes that I consider worthwhile to watch. I mean animes that have a good story line, amazing characters, and of course the theme or message that is being portrayed. And my golly, Tsubasa Chronicles gets an A+.
