what a difference five minutes can make...

so i was getting breakfast, after cashing a check this morning at the wells fargo in pinole, when i saw several police cars flying by me in the other direction. i also happened to see several ARMED policemen blocking off the road ahead of me. i didn't really think that much of it, but when i continued to see even more cop cars rushing in the opposite direction as i made my way home, i knew something had to be up.

and it was.

here is the story.

i don't even want to imagine what would have happened if i had gone to the bank a few minutes later...

why can't i have every saturday off?

working on saturdays is good for my paycheck, but it does make it so i miss out on doing tons of fun stuff...and since i'll be off for the next few, and have been for the past couple saturdays, i have been trying to making the most of them by doing the following:

going to san francisco food festival:
banh mi and pad thai tacos from the peached tortilla
by FAR the highlight of the day-pork belly blt from good food catering (also pictured is their delicious pulled pork sandwich)
meeting up with old hawaii friends, who were on a west coast tour with their band

driving down to explore monterey

visiting the aquarium

can't wait until next week!!!

sunday's spiritual thought...

You can take anything away from a man
and he will survive,
but take away his hope
and he will die.

sunday's spiritual thought...

Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet.
Only through experience of trial and suffering
can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired,
and success achieved.

Helen Keller 1880-1968

hey you in the back row...

hey jackass-

did anyone else hear that?

it's the sound of this year whizzing by. i truly can not believe it's already august-if only for the fact that i've been so busy stalking other people's blogs that i forgot about my own.

this loss in the blogosphere time continuim for me might also be because i have entered my normal spring-fall schedule of having three jobs-managing a doctor's office part time, working with my autistic client, and scorekeeping/playing softball. it doesn't sound like much, but it adds up to about 70hrs a week on average. (and according to my landlord, who is constantly bitching and moaning about his supposed 70hr/week schedule, that is a lot)

hopefully it will all be worth it, as i have begun to plan my next trip to here...
