Porta-Art

One of the things I noticed when driving around San Francisco for the first time were the little houses encasing the portable toilets outside of the homes being renovated in neighborhoods like Pacific Heights and Presidio Heights.  I was already blown away by the fact that, unlike in NYC, many SF city dwellers lived in houses (with garages!) but to realize that even the porta-potties had houses was almost too much.  The enclosures, built by the construction companies while remodeling homes, are meant to cover up an eyesore but also serve as advertisement for the construction company itself.  Portable art at its finest.

Some enclosures are made of simple wooden lattice boards.

While others are more modern and sleek.

My favorite had decorative glass windows.

On looks alone I’d choose this construction company for my remodel.

    Interesting and kinda cool. Never seen ’em elsewhere. Do you reckon the need for a leveling foundation on San Fran’s many hilly streets had something to do with the development of these? Once you’ve got your porta-can on a foundation, the last thing you want is some idiot to push it off–hence the enclosing structure?

    And after frowning a little, he bowed his head and scratched with a serious look. Hakadan said, putting the teacup down on the table. “Wow… You wrote more than yesterday.” You must have been busy meeting people…” The racers smiled. “Okay… Anyway, I have to finish this…” I’m happy that it’s written well. Oh, that’s right. What I’ve written so far. Do you want to hear it Please see how it is.” “No, Hanuka’s confession…” “I just wrote it, so I don’t know how it is. Because this is super high.

    It’s okay. We have to trim it anyway. …Okay, let’s listen.”And the racers read a few lines of what Hakadan wrote without any time to stop him. “The star shining at Hanukkah’s night shines more than ever. The stars shine every night, but the stars of the night are very special. So are your eyes. Any lady has shining eyes, but only your eyes shine in my heart…” Hakadan opened his eyes roundly. “What do you think?”

    The racers said a little shy. “As expected, is it too childish? Right?” Hakadan was speechless by the racers’ expression. The expression of the racers, who seemed worried, was an innocent expression that I hadn’t seen in a long time, so I felt like I was watching the racers of my childhood again. So Hakadan suddenly said without realizing it.

    One day, I was very curious about the phrase “I felt like I was walking on a pink cloud” in a novel. No matter how much I think about it, it is only sunset or dawn that reminds me of “pink clouds,” so I guess it is a word that describes a very hopeful or very touching feeling.

    In addition, it was difficult to understand “The world looked bright” and “It felt like only two of us existed,” so Sina rarely read romance novels with such phrases appearing in bundles. If it’s a fairy tale, I remember reading it hard when I was young, but there’s no one who hasn’t read one or two fairy tales when I was young, and it’s not much of a memory.

    So, Sina gradually felt that this kind of vain story didn’t fit her, so even if she read it, it was mainly practical (?) with writings such as “novels that come out well on exams, 101 kinds,” “knitting, 37 knits,” “Long live health (because I want to be healthy), “Napoleon’s warring” and “interesting historical stories.”

    “The last verse of the last meeting” I once wondered a lot about the phrase “I felt like I was walking on a pink cloud” in a novel. No matter how much I think about it, it is only sunset or dawn that reminds me of a “pink cloud,” so I guessed that it probably describes a very hopeful or very touching feeling. In addition, it is difficult to understand, such as “The world looked bright all over” and “It felt like only the two of us existed.”

    Sina didn’t really read romance novels in which such phrases appeared in groups. If it’s a fairy tale, I remember reading it hard when I was young, but there’s no one who hasn’t read a single or two fairy tales when I was young, and it’s not much of a memory. So, Sina gradually felt that this kind of vain story didn’t fit her, so even if she reads, “Fiction that comes out well on the test, 101 kinds,” “Knitting,” “307 knits,” and “Long live health” (because she wanted to be healthy).

    Even so, when did you meet and fall in love? We should have cracked down on the Callus on people more thoroughly. It was good that Ludat won the duel today, but. I’m worried about the future. Oh man. “Why is everything going wrong?” “…Even so,” Gadiel cleared his throat. “Having a grudge against Luon Ludrat”… It’s against L’s will. How dare you covet someone else’s wife…” It was a racer who blushed at the words, but still seriously.

    No matter what people say to me, that’s what I’ll hear. Why did you call me this way about this?” The snap was not wrong. What do you mean “Manote”? It was very unique. If you have the ability, how many concubines you have, it was none of Elyacion’s business. But… “Hey. You… I don’t know how much I know about Sina, but not that girl.

    If a girl like that is your taste, how much I want…” “I don’t know about tastes. No… If it’s a taste, I rather like the rich type,” the racers said seriously with a thinking look. “…I feel good when I hug you.” It’s warmer…” Obviously, it’s more like talking about cushions than about women. El Yacion looked at the racers gently because he felt innocent. “This guy, he’s fine on the outside.” Maybe it’s because Sineus and Hergas are sons. I’ve never seen a guy who says this with an insidious look. Oh, my.’

    Asterin witnessed an unexpected incident and was about to die of joy. “Did you hear that?” “Lucabella?” What you said? My brother said he would make the manote a concubine!! “If there were no interests involved, it would have been very unpleasant, but now Asterin couldn’t stand it because it was fun rather than unpleasant. “Then Luon Loudrat loses his subordinate completely, right?” Hahaha…

    However, the Pionions, who did not know how Elyacion felt, looked very impressed. L took care of El Yasion and sent Chylus Adion himself! “As expected, L is alive!”Even before the “Ooh–” banquet began, this touching news spread throughout the palace. “Sadion” and “True Sadion” appeared directly from El. But that’s a little later… The Pionions kept talking. “False”

    The monsters in the hunting ground…! And Chylus Sardion…! Although I’m not a saint, I can clearly see what Elle means!! “El Yacion was embarrassed. I didn’t know people wanted such a strong “new Eliasion.” It’s like… He thought the situation was too easy. I don’t know if they accepted my opinion that I’m a substitute… Even though he had a meeting with Sardion, who had fallen out of nowhere, he was now moved by the will of L and a kind of “miracle.

    “He must be the spouse of El Yacion!””Oh! Clonia Sestin, congratulations!””The impatient Pionions have already called Sestin ‘El Jacion’, and now they have become reckless. “Oh…” El Yacion? So that I can kiss that person’s hand! You came directly from L’s court…”I’m going crazy…” I didn’t know that these people were so religious. However, Elijahion spoke solemnly.

    After that, I won’t say anything. After that, you do whatever you want. How is it?” Then his eyes became serious. “…Life threat. …That’s right. It was really like that.”Louitte, we need it.” Elijahion’s eyes burned with hope. “Then!!!” “Who would be good?”What did you think, Luitra?” “………..” Gadiel looked at the navy blue eyes he looked at. And, Luon Ludrat desperately agonized over whether he was really joking with himself.

    It was not long before I finished my worries and said. In this serious atmosphere, Loudrat is not the type to joke around. “….what do you think you are? And, what have you been saying so far…?” “….!!,” Ludrat frowned. “…Ah…” Ah? Gadiel grinned. “…You said you weren’t at the dorm in the morning…” You didn’t come back last night?I see. I should’ve asked that first. And… That’s right. “Resuscitation”… Why did you get that? You didn’t mean to be a solo route. Okay… You’d better say that first.”

    Genton, on his way to the royal palace and his accommodation to meet Elyacion Gadiel, stopped unknowingly when he saw a man walking from the other side. “…Mapso….sa….!!!” Ludrat walked in thought and looked at him white when he saw him. And I smiled slowly. Genton realized that as he approached Ludrat one step at a time, he was also looking at himself. In the end, it would be better to say hello.

    It was too late to pretend not to know, and I had no intention of pretending not to know. Genton spat out abusive language inside. What do you mean he’s fine? What the heck! Where did you get the resuscitation? “Luon Ludrat…” Genton said with a forced smile. “At some point…” Congratulations. You’ve saved your life. Now, as a true stranger… By the way, it’s really… Even at yesterday’s banquet, you had short hair…” “Yes.” No more words continued, so Genton kept saying.

A proposal… Are you going to accept it?” “No.” It was a snap. “….then?” “I don’t know.” “………..” It was so unique that it was difficult to ask anymore. No matter how much gent-on you can’t ask again. So Genton aimed at him. …very offended. This kind of response… I feel so bad.
