I'm Up Past Your Bedtime

Because I have the summers off, and no longer pass out at 10pm from sheer exhaustion, I'm able to stay up and watch The Daily Show and swoon over Jon Stewart. Last night, I GOL (giggled out loud) so hard that Gladys started laughing too.

(watch to the end for maximum GOL)

TLC and Animal Planet

I was just on the phone with my mom, when she said, "I think your father just got home from work." What?? How?? Well, apparently it's 5:00 in Philadelphia, which means it's 2:00 here. I have officially not moved from the couch since 7am. It's a little sad, but probably still better than your day.

You Were Probably Getting Ready for the Work Week...

But my Sunday was Settlers of Catan, friends, beers, and happy hour.
I love getting the summers off.

Indeed Santa Cruz

Here are the things I got paid to do in Santa Cruz:

1) Hang out on a porch in the sun
2) Play fetch with a dog
3) Go to Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery and have some delicious beers and the best veggie burger I've ever had

Santa Cruz!!

Today I'm giong to Santa Cruz to see good ole Joe. He is one of the least annoying people I know, which is a huge compliment. When I go back to Santa Cruz, I don't really hang out in my old neck of the woods, mainly because i don't want to get stabbed near heroin park. instead, I go up toward Seabright and head to the beach and the brewery. Today I plan on: seeing Joe, drinking a beer outside, leaving Joe and Dylan to their man date, meeting up with Mark and drinking another beer. I can't believe I'm getting paid to do this.

White Album Ensemble

Today I went for a ride in Golden Gate Park this morning and handled it like a pro. I rode up and down the panhandle and then even took to the main street through the park. My new bike has an awesome basket in front, but did I remember to use this basket today to bring a book, a blanket and some cheese and crackers into the park? No, no I did not. so after an hour or so I headed home.

Later that day I went to San Jose to see the White Album Ensemble play Beatles' music in a park. They played some good songs, which the crowd seemed ambivalent to, then they played some lame classics like Let It Be and While My Guitar Gently Weeps, which the crowd seemed to love. Alejandro didn't care what they played--he had a butt hole on his shirt.

Berkeley

Today was a great day. I woke up late, read a magazine in bed, ate homemade pancakes, then read The Age of Innocence. Around noon, we headed to Berkeley on the BART so we wouldn't have to drive. We hung out on Shattuck Ave for a little bit before taking a bus the wrong way as we tried to head toward Pyramid Brewery on Gilman. After we got off the wrong bus, and realized we were in El Cerrito, a random non-threatening man drove by asking if we needed a ride. We said yes, because we had exactly seven minutes to get back to Berkeley before the tour of the brewery would start. The driver did not look like a murderer, but we had no way of knowing he was, in fact, a clinger. That's right. After driving us to the brewery, he parked and JOINED US for the tour. After he asked several ridiculous questions, and commented that he couldn't drink any of the free beer during the tasting, he left. Thank god.

Pyramid Brewery

Then, we took a bus toward the Berkeley Hills and hiked our way to the top.

The view from the top was incredible.
