But oh no.
So I wound up walking:
from my place to Haight, where I caught the 71 rather than facing the Evil Hill Of Much Evilness.
Then from Amoeba on Haight to Divis and Haight. Waited for about 30 minutes for the bus, and gave up. Cab to Japantown.
Down Japantown's whole length- then back up- then back down- then back up 2/3rds of the way.
down Japantown to Fillmore- caught the 38 @ Fillmore.
Up Divis to home. This with a TON of crap in my bag.
Quite a haul, all told.
