I’d be happy to taste test tacos with those ladies anytime…

Poor Debra never got her Korean tacos.

Sad face!

They were looking for the Kogi taco truck, which is kind of famous on the internet.

[re=320732]tunamelt[/re]: Or maybe not. But the Korean bbq taco truck is the Kogi one.

Anyone know the percentage turnout of eligible voters today? In my burg, turnout for elections not involving presidents or senators = ~15% at best. So the future of municipal government gets decided by a few cranks who actually read the local monopoly paper. How does California compare?

Today, we are all Kogi BBQ Truck Eaters!

I heart me some hot spicy Ginge.

[re=320744]hobospacejunkie[/re]: via LA Times:
“By 4 p.m., voter turnout in Los Angeles County is about 11.57%. Turnout in Orange County is similarly scant. Those who vote seem unhappy with the budget-related propositions.”

Looks as bad as Austin’s mayoral race. And I kept meaning to vote but kept forgetting my card and then blew it off.

To be fair, everyone is always looking for the Kogi taco truck.

She must not know about Proposition 78-W: All municipalities with a population over 5,000 must have a taco truck on every third street corner. Of these, at least 60% must be Korean BBQ.

Get out there and vote people!

Twitter sucks.

hobospacejunkie May 19, 2009 at 11:19 pm

[re=320752]chascates[/re]: Thank you. For some reason I thought it’d be higher, since they seem to have elections every other week. Not sure why I’d think that would make a difference. Or why I didn’t look at the LA Times myself.

I didn’t vote in the mayor’s race, either. But at least Brewster didn’t win. Not that I know anything about his opponent, the winner. All I know about local politics I learn from my wife, who seems to know or be acquainted with a lot of local politicos via her work, and the stupid ‘parties’/fundraisers she’s forced to attend.

Debra, that’s not how it works – you’re supposed to let Twitter tell YOU where the Kogi truck is.

Jukesgrrl May 20, 2009 at 12:32 am

[re=320767]catsonmars[/re]: Public official doesn’t know how to use Twitter. What a surprise. The big fail: she didn’t write, “What is a FUCKING Korean BBQ taco truck?”

When every day is election day the secretary of state can afford to go on a taco run.

When the Revolution comes, the government officials who polluted the world with their twattings will go up against the wall right after the lawyers. You heard it here first

Once you go Korean BBQ Tacos, you can never go back.

When I lived in Portland, OR, there used to be a Teriyaki/Mexican place (that might have also served fried chicken). Either way, it was a great place after a night of drinking.

CHASE that Korean bbq taco truck!!!

I think A Tribe Called Quest should change the line “Ya lyrics is plain like 8-ball jackets” to “Ya lyrics is plain like a politician’s Twitter feed.”
