I've had fun parking in SF. How would I know there is cheaper parking 1 or three blocks away until after I parked? Should I be using my smart phone while driving around? Can I, legally? What if I have a (gasp, the horror) dumb phone?

He meant Charlene. I know, because I was on the aforementioned trip too, and we were able to have some all-too-brief time with her. I've never met Catherine.
