Even Longer Time. . .

Okay, it's been a long time since I posted. I've been trying to take advantage of summer fun in and out of the area.

In short what has happened since last post:

I went to Bolinas beach and got probably the wort sun burn of my life!! it was almost worth it, because it was a fun day relaxing at the beach. And Bolinas itself is an odd quirky town. They do not like out of towners, so the town folk do not provide any new water meters and they take the road signs down to keep people out. don't believe me? check it out: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/10/09/realestate/09nati.html?ex=1188532800&en=75e3f0e1e29e746f&ei=5070

The otter and I had a very successful (and overdue) housewarming poker party here.
I went to visit my friend (the Badger), in Denver, CO area. (btw - does anyone else think it's strange I call my boyfriend the otter? ) What a great trip and cool town. Even despite the bloody nose and constant dehydration feeling!! First, it was great to be in real summer weather again. (i should not have to use my heat in August!!), and i even saw some really cool lighting one night. I was able to see some really cool places- Red Rocks, 16th street and the downtown area. went to a Rockies-Cubs game. i think we sat in the literal nose bleed section, but it was still fun. The Rockies ended up winning 15-2 and had the chance to see a grand slam after wondering if there was going to be anymore scoring! Saw the Science museum and the zoo from the outside - it got too late to actually go in. It was all in all a great vacation. It was great to get caught up and the Badger is from PA, so it was nice to talk to someone who knows what an Eat N Park and Perkins are!! And it was a mental vacation for me as well since it was great to get out of California and it can be really good for the mind and soul to get a different perspective at times.

I like interesting "art", so here's a giant bear peering into a city building in downtown Denver:

Took the Otter to the Haight Asbury district this past weekend. He had never been and I wanted to go to the Amoeba records since I had not been music shopping in awhile. (Another thing that came out of my Denver trip. The badger has a good appreciation for music - he's one of the few people that can get away with controlling the radio station in my car - just ask Midwest Thunder how particular I can be!!!)

Steagle game was on Sunday night. Steelers won. could have been so much closer, if it wouldn't be for a few turnovers. The game was in Pittsburgh and it made me miss Pittsburgh. If you're a Steeler fan and have 20 minutes to spare, this is a great video about Steeler Nation and the city itself. Thanks to Leasa for passing it on: http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=1527321414
Trying to go camping for a night this long weekend and maybe a dinner date with the Otter in the city. Will try and keep you posted!!
