Cool Like Dat

I'm usually self-conscious taking photos of strangers, but this time I couldn't resist. These 3 guys were so freakin' hip and I can only hope to be cool like dat when I'm their age.I know it's hard to tell in this photo, but both of the guys on the right are on their laptops. Sharing not only photos, but other miscellaneous technical information with each other. Sweet.

Jimmy and I finally celebrated our anniversary last weekend. We went to dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant in Palo Alto then headed to San Francisco for ice cream at...Ghirardelli Square, of course! We drove around the city for 4 hours, going to miscellaneous "Points of Interest" on the GPS, which included the Grateful Dead home near the corner of Haight and Ashbury, Billy Goat Hill Park - a park on the side of a high hill, new-to-us vista points in the Presidio, Alamo Square and the Painted Ladies, Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park and a lot more, finally getting home just after 2am. But if any of you notice the times I usually post my blogs, after 2am isn't late for us.

While we were in SF, we stopped by AT&T Park.We'll be back there all day Saturday to watch Supercross races. It'll be fun as long as it doesn't rain. I'm bringing my Kindle because I'll be interested for 5 of the 10 hours, but my mind will wander a lot, that I know for sure. I'm reading "The Lovely Bones" because I considered going to the movies to watch it, but decided to read the book first.

You're such a romantic, Mad, admit it!

Sounds like a wonderful anniversary. And I do love that those guys are probably more hip than the rest of us. Too cool.

And every time I read Palo Alto I think about Felicity. I can't help it.

oooo I love Mexican food, lucky you, eating there to celebrate your anniversary. I have a distant cousin who lives in Palo Alto.... wonder if he's still there?
My family group traditionally goes out for "Movie'n'Mexican" around Christmas, but we haven't done it for the past couple of years due to babies arriving in the family, so I think we're having a "Football'n'Mexican" instead on Super Bowl Day. Wanna join us?
I haven't been checking blogs for a while, mainly due to being distracted by the ongoing problem in the basement... but I've hired a lawyer now so things should get resolved in the near future.

Happy Anniversary!

I bought that book twice! I was reading the back cover at my local costco a few weeks back and bought it. When I started reading it I realized, wait - I HAVE and READ this book already. (eyes rolling) To my defense, they changed the book cover. Ha!

Happy Anniversary a bit late. Sounds like a perfect night. We used to walk around the neighborhood behind that motel we told you about and oooh and aahhh at the lovely restored ladies. A recommendation for your Kindle...Jonathan Tropper's Book of Joe and This is Where I Leave You....quirky families and great, funny, sad story lines. Loved them both. Love to you and Jimmy.
