What Super Bowl? [A Quick Blurb About Our Weekend]
While the rest of the country spent Sunday parked in front of the TV yesterday, watching the St. Louis Whatchamahoozits do battle with the Tennessee Somethingorothers ...
... SecraTerri and DRaftervoi spent their day squiring a carload of Tots around downtown San Francisco, in search of holograms and hamburgers and little plastic beads.
It was a happy day. With nary a Budweiser commercial in sight, even.
We were all given the full *DRaftervoi as Tour Guide* Treatment ... featuring ALL of his Greatest Hits:
Fortunately for all of us, David is not only an enthusiastic tour guide, he's an extremely entertaining tour guide. Nobody knows the Bay Area like he does -- every nook and cranny and fogbank and gargoyle. He knows all the cool places to spit. He can always find a decent parking spot. And he doesn't come unglued when we have to make another unscheduled bathroom stop.
Basically he was in his element yesterday.
*I* of course am never happier than when I've got a Tot (or two) in my Zip Code.
And naturally Daughters #1 and #2 are never happier than when a Parental Unit is spending vast sums of money on them at the department store of choice.
So there was lots of *happy* to go around yesterday.
Overheard Snippet of Conversation #1:
blurb #1 will go HERE: more to
in the week. the girls don't fly back to seattle until late tonight, so
we are still knee-deep in suitcases and shopping bags. we'll take them
out to dinner tonight before whisking them off to the alaska airlines
terminal for their flight home. as soon as things settle down and we
restore the castle to some semblance of *order* [read this: as soon as
we can see the floor
again], i'll get back to writing on my usual not-so-regular basis.
where i'll ask a *relevant* question:
amazingly profound thought of the day: "One more thing.....DAVID RAFTER IS THE COOLEST, HIPPIST, HOTTEST GUY ON THIS WHOLE PLANET AND IF YOU WANT TO ARGUE ABOUT IT, COME ON OVER...I'LL TAKE YOU ON." ~ ~ pimpjaymi's kickass homepage ~
[guess that answers the 'how are your kids and your boyfriend getting along?' question.]
