Two Great Tastes...

Sara and I took a trip down to smelLA for Desmond's first birthday. Well, that and so I could go see My Bloody Valentine again and go to Disneyland. An action-packed weekend.

We were at Whole Paycheck in Sherman Oaks when we saw the rare chocolate bar with bacon by Vosges. I had read about similar delicacies, but this was my first time to indulge for myself. Delicious! The salty bacon really added to the milk chocolate sweetness. I recommend.

Girls Gone Wild on the Bay Bridge

We were driving over the Bay Bridge from Oakland into SF a couple of months ago when what do we see but the Girls Gone Wild bus!

It took all my strength not to run it off the road, plunging into the Bay and thus sacrificing myself for the good of all humankind.

Mariachi at an Apple Fest

Last weekend after Desmond's first camping trip, we stopped in Sebastapol for a Gravenstein apple festival. Besides yummy apple treats there was an awesome mariachi band and an even more amazing country and western band. The woman wore this old timey yellow dress with her red hair piled on top of her head and the back up band all dressed in black.

We bought a pie from a church group and I didn't burst into flames when I ate it.

Undersea Shocking!

Don't underestimate the octopus. It's got 3 hearts of a champion...

Some Argentinian Graffiti

My dahlink friend Michelle went to Argentina and was kind enough to capture some graffiti to share...

Love the bear that was just shot.

Nico lives in Argentina...right next to some creepy, dead doll heads and Mr. T.

Happy bear says "Hello! I have a freakishly small body!"

My favorite. Maybe because I am so crabby.

More to come. Michelle took some really nice bathroom shots. Anyone who is obsessed with bathroom art is obviously a friend of mine.

I Wouldn't Recommend Sitting Still in Oakland For Too Long

I'm not a big fan of taggers--prefer images to ego tripping--but I had to take a picture of this one. Something about the stripes on that couch and the angle that it was propped that caught my fancy.

Another Cupcake

This cupcake appeared next to Lake Merritt. Love to see it reappear.


p.s. Someone asked if I knew of any others. I have no clue beyond these two.
