Burning Up in SoCal

Charissa: socal is burning up like crazy
me: really?
Charissa: yeah
me: yeah, it’s been pretty hot here too
Charissa: nooo
Charissa: fires

That’s what I get for not watching the news on Sundays. Pray for all the SoCal folks please.

Upcoming Travel Schedule

Update (2/16/06): My friend in BJ said he was able to get on to the AOL site, so it seems that they’re AOK!

Chevy Aveo

For my LA trip last week, I rented a car from SFO. While picking up the rental car, the guy directed me to this bright red car (economy size, of course). He asked if I was planning on touring around the city. I told him I was taking a little road trip. He said, “In this car???” Haha. Hey, you can’t beat the price of $14/day.

Yep, went to Santa Barbara and LA in that tiny body capsule. Every time a car passed me, I had to hold the steering wheel tight.

Here’s my travel lineup for the next week: Continue reading

Signs and Wonders drink

My friends and I were trying to kill some time before dinner when we stumbled across this little coffeehouse on Divisadero. We saw these letters and news articles on the wall speaking of Signs and Wonders, a peanut milk drink. We ordered a small bottle and tried it. Sure enough, it tasted like peanut and milk. Not too bad. It was a bit grainy and had a funny aftertaste. The letters on the wall were from people praising the drink and its healing powers. The husband and wife team who makes this beverage, just started distributing the drink to stores in the SF area and San Diego. This just might be the next big thing to hit your local whole foods market.

By the way, it looks like these people are believers too.

Check out the pic we took:

Rock shopping

For the past couple days, I’ve been out ring shopping with my friend, who’s up here from San Diego. (The ring’s for him, not me.) Anyhoo, we went to the gift center where he found a rock he liked. He’s getting the mounting made to look like one from Verragio because that’s what the girl wanted.

After he bought the ring, we walked around the metreon where he would say things like, “I could have bought 3 flatscreen TV’s or 5 camcorders.” Hahaha…wait til he has to pay for the wedding, and the honeymoon, and the house. You just have to have the mindset that “money ain’t a thing” right?
