Catching Up On the Week

We were without free Internet access for a couple days while we traveled to San Francisco and then back here to Thousand Oaks.  Finally, the Hampton Inn has free wifi!!

Right now, Michelle and I are getting ready to head to the beach for a while before Wordy and Jessica’s wedding this evening.  We’re watching The Price Is Right.  Did I mention that we saw The Price Is Right taped live, in-person on Monday?  Did I mention that Michelle got the call to COME ON DOWN??  Did I also mention that she got on stage and won a hot tub?!?  Well she did.  It was awesome.  I don’t want to steal her thunder on telling the story, so make sure you check out her blog in the coming days for the full tale…

On Tuesday, we drove up the Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco.  Michelle was delightfully surprised at the scenery on the way up– we realized that California is the state she’s been wishing for every time she’s traveled: it has the ocean, mountains, cities, and beautiful weather.  I can’t argue with that.  It’s a helluva big state.  Our drive up the coast took most of the day, and we took a lot of really nice photos (which will be coming to the site soon).

Wednesday, we spent the day touring around San Francisco.  It was REALLY foggy in the bay all day long, but we enjoyed Fisherman’s Wharf, took a nice boat tour around the bay, shopped in Chinatown, and walked around Union Square.  Lot of good pictures to be seen here as well.

On Thursday, we made it back to Thousand Oaks by about 6PM.  We were kind of surprised how far north from L.A. the traffic congestion stretched.  We missed the wedding rehearsal itself, but we made it to dinner and got to hang out with everyone at the hotel bar for a while in the evening.  It’s going to be a nice, relaxing weekend!

I’d write more, but we’ve got to get moving to the beach…

My Bracket Is Frakked

So when the sun rose on a new work week, I was greeted with only one of my Final Four picks still intact.  Fortunately, it IS the one that I picked to win the national championship, so I guess I have a prayer.  I thin, wispy, glimmer of a prayer.

Yesterday, Michelle hung out at my place to work on some work-related stuff, and we also watched a little “Best of the Price Is Right” on DVD.  Two words– huh.  Larious.  The contestants from the 50s and 60s, as well as the prizes and prices were just unbelievable.  I’m sure the same thing will be said about… oh, I dunno, American Idol in 30 or 40 years.  People will wonder how the hell we ever watched it.

Busy day lined up at work, so I best get to it.  Need to start planning for a big adjustment in our availability schedule as well as regular day-to-day stuff…

How was your weekend?

Fun With Sounds

I think it’s fair to say that Dave and I try to maintain a modicum of weirdness non-normalcy uniqueness in our lives.  We were talking a little this morning about how I’ve updated the ringer on my phone to a naval general alarm you might hear on a surface vessel, and he was planning to use the “Cliff Hangers” song from the Price Is Right on his.  Then Dave struck gold on the UTubes!
