Greetings. I just joined this community today. I was born and raised in Santa Fe, moved to Denver 2 years ago, and moved back this past August to start school at the Southwest Acupuncture College. I am also the maintainer for the fanta_se community. Just wanted to introduce myself. :)

At Albertson's:
Lady attempting to slide card: Gosh, I just got this registered! Why isn't it working?
Cashier: The City is kind of slow to process these things.
Lady: Oh yeah?
Cashier: Yes, actually, I know all about it. I also work for the City.
Lady: You know? I was just thinking - you look a lot like Bill Richardson.
Cashier: [WTF?!]
Lady: That's a compliment.
All: [snicker]

12:23AM - Flashing sign at the corner of St. Francis and Cerrillos

The illuminated construction billboard thing that flashes text (what are they called anyways?) that's on the northeast corner of Cerrillos and St. Francis:





What the fuck? Are the cops saying they're going to "SUPER BLITZ" the citizenry or something? Also, I could've sworn that "getting blitzed" was a synonym for getting trashed/wasted/smashed/drunk.

3:24AM - Santa Fe logic

Conversation at Whole Foods with my classmates' boyfriend

Me: Well, I really want to eat organic veggies...but I'm too poor.
Dude: Well you CAN afford to eat organic!
Me: Oh?? *hoping he'll tell me about some discount veggie market*
Dude: Yeah, you just put it out into the universe, and it'll happen for you! It's already done!

He was actually a nice guy and I get the whole "energy" thing but ugh what kind of twisted reasoning is that? I demand cheap food!

I'm the only junior in a class full of really dumb sophomores.

Overheard in World History-
Our teacher was talking about the Black Death
1st kid "Was that when all the grasshoppers went all over the earth?"
2nd kid "Yeah and they killed everyone."
1st kid "Yeah man. That must have sucked."

Hi Santa Fe,

I just joined this community because I've recently moved from New Mexico to California and I'm homesick. Please keep the overheard conversations coming... I miss all those funky crazy types. Does anyone remember the homeless dude with the long beard who always wore a dress? Has anyone seen him lately?

1:11AM - a cute one


I didn't realize I had been named after Raggedy Andy until a family get together a couple years ago. I was telling the story of how I had loved those old books and how my younger sister was named (Raggedy)Ann because of me. My mom cut into the conversation, and said, "No, your older sister liked those books...you were the one named after Raggedy Andy"

Haha what a way to name kids, but strangely endearing...I knew a girl once who was named Remy cause her mom loved to drink Remy Martins.

Current mood: surly

1:55PM - zozobra, not overheard so much as over-seen

"Look out, get out of the way---SICK GIRL, SICK GIRL!"

Then this teenage girl who is vomiting all over herself and has her eyes rolled way back in her head passes right over the crowd and over the gate at the front of the event. I am not exaggerating when I say she looked like a zombie, unconscious and foaming at the mouth.
