Dear chips and salsa pt II
So hot in my mouth. The way you burn me makes me want you even more.
Dear Chips and Salsa,
I love you. Let’s lock the door and let the world sort itself out. My wife? Yeah she’s totally cool with this.
I’m on vacation next week and so what I’m doing at work right now could barely be considered work. On a positive note I just got a phone call letting me know that as the incumbent manager I am keeping my position.
fobay: pikkutiikeri: Areola. It sounds like a frigging cereal, doesn’t it? And they’re delicious with milk! I just shot milk out of my nose.
You know what I need right now?
A taco truck. A good classic central valley taco truck. The kind of taco truck that can have zero customers one minute and then, shortly after that animal is run over in the street, has a line around the block. I’m not to proud to admit that I’d eat roadkill tacos right now if they tasted good.
I don't find Cameron Diaz appealing.
I’m just saying…
I was just out in the front of the yard and I saw two teenagers kissing on the sidewalk. I yelled ‘I see you!’ I’m not sure how it was taken but in my head I sounded like Sauron catching a glimpse of Frodo once the Precious was on his finger and fully expected the kids to collapse in fear at the darkness of my power. Then it occurred to me that I probably sounded like that old...
I can't find the rest of my trip
Sorry gentle readers….I can’t find the rest of my trip report. For those of you that have been enjoying it, I’ll rewrite. For those of you who haven’t been enjoying it. I’m sorry, this volcano must keep erupting until it has nothing left.
HST 2009 Day 6
Day 6 August 25, 2009 Morraine Lake to Junction Meadow. I woke looking forward to the hike today. We would be starting our journey on a steep decline to the Kern River. I was awake before everyone and took the opportunity to gather some fire wood. There was a slight chill still in the air and it would be nice to enjoy a fire when we could. We ate breakfast and broke camp and were on the trail...
HST 2009 Day 5
Day 5 August 24, 2009 Big Arroyo to Morraine Lake We were a little slow to rise this morning and didn’t begin on the trail until almost 9:00 am. The climb today was steady and relentless. It’s positive gain was refreshing. Last year when we did the the beginning of this trail Marcelo was with us. I remember at the conclusion of that trail him cursing the very earth we walked upon...
HST 2009 Day 4
Day 4, August 23, 2009. Hamilton Lake to Big Arroyo We broke camp and were on the trail from Hamilton Lake to Big Arroyo by 9:00 am. We had spent some of our afternoon the previous staring up towards the pass trying to ascertain where and how we would find our way out of this granite bowl that was the home of Hamilton Lake. The trail was steep and I think that I had found my pace. I began pushing...
HST 2009 Day 3
Day 3, August 22, 2009. Bearpaw Meadow to Hamilton Lake. The night did not turn out as stormy as it appeared it would be the previous day. I woke early and feeling much better about myself than I had when I went to sleep the night before. The only downside about facing the new day for me was that the the immediate beginning of the trail from our campsite was steep and not what I wanted to do. We...
HST 2009 Day 2
Day 2, August 21, 2009. Crescent Meadow to Bearpaw Meadow. Our little spartan camp began to stir around 6:00 am. I learned as we began breaking the camp down that my partners had been kept awake through the night by a couple of kids at a campsite above us. It was Eric’s perception that they had waited until midnight to begin drinking and then proceeded to be drunk and noisy the majority of...
Ima bout to blow up ya dash with a trip report
because my next trip is 4 months away and it’s all I can truly focus on. Also, anyone want to go with me….I’ve got an opening?
The High Sierra Trail
From August 20, 2009 to August 29, 2009 5 friends thought it would be a good idea to walk from west to east across the Sierras and climb the highest peak in the continental United States. What follows is a travel log from my perspective. Day 1 August 20, 2009.Today was the assembly day. Eric came from the central coast, Brent from Caruthers, Skot and Kelly from Fresno and I started the day...

"Mental Health Day"
I have never taken a mental health day. I always go to work. In the last 14 years I have called in sick 5 times. Once to take a final, Once to attend a meeting for school and 3 times becuase my wife said I was too sick to go to work and if I didn’t call, she would. That being said I have been considering calling in even though I have no illness or obligation to attend to. Why is this...

About to double down at KFC. Next post will be from the hospital following my heart attck.
How to make a square a circle
The Missus has the same thing for breakfast most mornings. English Muffin, cheese and an egg as a little sandwich. Most days I’m not home for this little ritual and when I am home I usually make breakfast for her. This morning my girl woke up with a fever so our normal Saturday Routine was a little off. The Missus was in the kitchen making her breakfast and I went over to offer a take...
April 16th 2010
16 was an eventful age for me. I got my license when I was 16. I went to Europe at this age and got pissed in a number of countries. I rolled a Chevy Suburban full of my friends end over end into a Vineyard and managed to not get anyone hurt.
Is on TV right now. On THE WEATHER CHANNEL of all places.
Numbers be my theme tonight (I'm not actually a...
I’ve decided to write numerous entries based on numbers I see today and what they make me think of. I’ll start with 1 because that is the number of followers that I believe I will have after this ridiculous stumble through numbers inspired posts…..
Somewhere between 8 and 12 years ago I was at dinner with a friend of mine and he asked me why it was that no matter where we would go I would always order a chicken fried steak. The answer was simple and still holds true today. I am on a quest to find the best chicken fried steak in the world. If I am at a restaraunt that I have never been to and they serve a chicken fried steak I am obligated,...
Ask me something to help me forget about the drain of the day
There are times when being the responsible party is not a pleasant experience. I can’t complain about my pay or my career. It has treated me very well. There are times though when people do things that cannot be ignored or talked away and decisive action must be taken. The draining part is knowing that a spouse and two young children will be affected.
I feel like a zombie. Without the craving for brains.
I truly can't believe this.
There are two movies on Syfy tonight. First: Mega Piranha—starring Tiffany. Second: Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus—starring Debbie Gibson. I think I moved to an alternate dimension. Oh, and Molly Ringwald on LMN.
