Happy Halloween!!!

i love this holiday... we went to the Castro, like always... dressed as Tetris we were like celebrities! it was great. everyone recognized us and wanted pictures of us in the street.

muni was a fiasco but we survived. we were stuck in the tunnel for almost an hour and crazy costumed kids were opening the doors, getting out, and walking in the tunnel. not cool, no cool. also, i dodged some puddles of puke in the church street station. i was only semi traumatized.

sounds like halloween, doesn't it?

'05 Champs

As everyone knows, the White Sox won the world series. In fits of joy my brother just had to make snow angels with the rally box and it's contents.

the year we carved fake pumpkins

Who needs to bother with the mess of pulp and seeds when you can carve a "fun-kin". I think I can hear the ocean in mine...

living the dream

my brother is living a dream today... cereality, foodlife, world series game 1.


so, i've been meaning to blog about this for a few days and just now over the weekend found the time. my Dad brought to my attention a new phrase coined due to the upcoming world series with the white sox and the astros. we all seem to know some cubs fans who are extremely loyal fans for the cubbies against their city rival the white sox. however, these days they love the white sox. they are called Bi-Sox-uals.


why is my blog turning into this "quote of the day" website?

so many ridiculous statements, so little blogging time!

Quote of the day - Friday

"now look who's oblivious!"


i saw a guy miss his connection from one BART train to another because he was so intensely checking out some woman's ass. it was quite funny to witness.

humans... sheesh.

Costume Planning

Planning the group Tetris costume idea was fun... and exhausting. There was a lot of measuring, crotch normalizing, formation brainstorming... so many tetris pieces, so little time for all of the dog piling.

Quote of the LATE night - Saturday

"we all need to normalize to my crotch."

Quote of the night - Saturday

"this is starting to get warm and electrical-smelling."

Quote and word of the day - Saturday

"i can sleep amongst the peppers!"

Quote of the day - Thursday

"i can't even have a sentence."

Ponder this thought on this lovely day of atonement

Children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray:

"Take only ONE. God is watching."

Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.

A child had written a note, "Take all the cookies you want. God is watching the apples."

Bridesmaids gone wild...

...or, just bridesmaids dance until the DJ turns the lights on.

pour some sugar on me!

Heather and Eddie tie the knot

Quote of the middle of the night - Friday/Saturday

"Tuck it in Tara!"

Julian, check this out!

My best friend from high school, Heather, or as I call her, Spyder, is getting married tomorrow. Or, technically later today I guess. But, my regular blog readers already knew this because I was at her bridal shower and bachelorette party a couple of weeks ago.

Anyways, her soon to be husband, Eddie wanted a Lego wedding cake. His grandmother made this little lego wedding cake topper. I just had to share it with you all... and Julian specifically because he loves legos.

rehearsal and rehearsal dinner

Friday "feel good" message

In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older. And, there on television, she said it was "exciting." Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist, first. The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!

Maya Angelou said this: "I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow." "I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights." "I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life." "I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as "making a life." "I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance."

"I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back." "I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision." "I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one." "I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.

People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back." "I've learned that I still have a lot to learn." "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
