Saturday my dad and uncle and aunt came over. my uncle and dad helped me remove the old counter top and put in a new one. Nothing fancy just newer and a different color. I got paint on the walls in the kitchen to cover that hideous mint color. But now we're not sure of the color we chose. It's a taupey brownish color but the way the light hits in there, its kind of a non-color. It's like any hue value it had in the hardware store got sucked out and its just this non-descript blah. maybe once we get the trim and cabinets painted white it will pop more. oh well. While my uncle was there helping he mentioned that he won tix for the last Giants game of the season yesterday against the Dodgers but couldnt go so he gave the tickets to us. Thanks!

It was cool even though they totally suck and the Dodgers already clinched the division. But the Giants won, and their pitcher, rookie phenom Tim Lincecum K'd 13 Dodgers and broke the season strike out record with 265 strike outs. With 18 wins that puts him in 5th for wins. Hopefully enough to earn the Cy Young.

It was a rad game. Lots of highlights. It was more than likely Omar Vizquel's last game as a Giant so he got a big standing ovation when they took him out of the game.

They made a really big deal about managing general partner Peter Moagown retiring. He was pivotal in keeping the Giants in San Francisco when there was threat they'd move to Florida and Canada. So it was pretty cool.

Also Inflielder Kevin Frandsen who had a promising rookie year last year tore his achelies in spring training and, missed out on what was supposed to be his year to shine. He was out all season and got a surprise at-bat late in the game. Again to a rousing applaud from the crowd.

It was "fan appreciation day" but I didn't feel appreciated. If they gave stuff out at the gate we missed it. It was a super sold-out crowd and we got there as the national anthem was going. They had prizes throughout the game but we didn't win anything. They announced the winners on the scoreboard by seat number and section and it was really frustrating seeing all these prizes going to the high price seats with hardly any for nose bleeds or cheaper seats.

4 finalists, 2 of which were from the Field Club section. (pfft) got to take a chance at starting one of these Rav 4s.

Towards the end of the game local Channel 2 news Traffic guy Sal Castaneda sat down in front of us! That was kinda cool since we've always been big fans of Sal. I was to chicken to say anything to him tho. I snuck this spy photo of the back of his huge melon.
we made eye contact once and I gave him a nod. He smiled and nodded back. we had a moment.

After the game we sat in the parking lot for like an hour waiting for traffic to clear up. It was still a nice day in the city. Meg saw this insane fog bank coming over the hills so we went looking for it.

We ended up going through Pacifica and down the coast almost to Santa Cruz!

The whole day was just a nice break from the house stuff and meg's school stuff. I'd say a nice battery charger for sure.

Monday. GO!

Wow, I suck.

sorry guys, I didnt post anything all week. well, I posted a mininoggin, and a new DSB. I guess thats enough.

So when I was brushing my teeth this morning I was thinking, Jelly Belly should make toothpaste. Imagine the possibilities.

here's some pictures.

this thing is always parked here. very odd piece of bike.

arty from this week(click for big)

Buffet pants! so you can truly get 'all-you-can-eat'.

Hey, whats that smell? I'm not sure but it smells just like really ripped abs.
You know, :sniff sniff: you're right!
(replace really ripped abs with "rock hard", Black" or "Fresh Guy")


some more arty..

here's some pics my brother sent me. (click for big)
major traffic on 880, my brother saw why.
if you look theres a semi truck hanging off the side!


thanks bri.

the kitchen is starting to happen.

the power in our office suddenly went out for like the whole day on monday.
I fixed mine tho.

and we'll end with what is probably the best picture I've ever seen on the internet.

Oh, speaking of Chihuahuas, if you go to Taco Bell, don't get the new Volcano Taco.
It taste like shit. I think the "Lava" sauce is actually diarrhea from people who were force fed nothing but jalapenos and Frito Lay bean dip, and large cans of commercial grade nacho cheese for 2 months.

good luck!
