Otherwise nice day somewhat marred by driving around in circles looking for parking spot in Oakland. For at least a half an hour. Might have had more options were I not the worlds worst parallel parker. Actually made attempt at tight spot, but then, nah...drove around some more. Later drove past same spot and saw someone else struggling with it. Feeling vindicated, I headed for an uphill-facing spot with plenty of space to pull in and make corrections. I am the type who will park blocks away to avoid parallel parking and yet will still bitch about having to walk that far. Then of course when I arrive at my destination there is an empty spot RIGHT IN FRONT!
