And, it was carried on by a Samuel L. Jackson arm look-a-like.

At least is wasn't real. Yikes.

Surfer Word of the Day - Sunday

the word of the day today is Aggro. i always thought of it as a short form of the word aggressive, but i really use it to mean "going nuts" or doing something a lot; that meaning of aggresive.

the official definition according to riptionary.com is as follows:

Angry. Pissed off. Example: "That dude went aggro when that kook dropped in on him."

the Twins made it to the Playoffs so we had to see them in Oakland

on the way in to the Twins game today we were interviewed by both Kron 4 News of the Bay Area and StarTribune.com from Minnesota. we took a lot of "booing" and such from A's fans... but we stuck it out none the less.

here we are in the beginning of the game still looking hopeful before things got too sad. at least we had our homer hankies for comfort. thanks to dave's dad for fedex-ing them to us from minneapolis!

we figured it out!

when we were in berlin we ate the most yummy turkish egg thing called "edje". we decided that we wanted to cook it for our "middle eastern theme" house dinner tomorrow night, but we realized that "edje" is how it's called in germany and we couldn't find a recipe.

after some searching, we figured out that in english it's called eggah and now we're all set with the right ingredients! looks yum, huh!?

Choir Retreat

this weekend was the UCAC Retreat at the Walker Creek Ranch in Petaluma. you may notice there are no pictures of us. well, that's because we looked a little haggard in the morning when i was walking around taking these pics... the cabin and bunk bed shots should explain why. :)

It's not summer anymore!

Happy October 1st and Happy Birthday Linny!!!
