Out and about in San Diego.

We went to the ocean. The Children’s Pool i think it was called. got to take a close up look at some seals. very cool thing to do. i almost made it all the way back to the car in one fell swoop. had to rest for about 5 minutes. my feet and legs would have felt worse had i not taken some aspirin before bed. but that’s jumping ahead a bit.

after the ocean trip we went to find some grub at a place that my friend had been to before and really enjoyed. we are kind of saving some of the more exotic stuff for the LA leg of my trip. we went to a place called Bare Back Grill. I had some tasty sliders. My friend had an actually tasty turkey burger and we shared a soft pretzel that was super delicious. it came with some jack daniels spicy mustard and jalapeno cheese dip. but the pretzel was so tasty just by itself.

afterwards, we drove to the gaslamp quarter which is very near petco stadium. it is like Austin’s 6th street but way more awesome. every block had an Irish pub, there were tasty sounding restaurants everywhere, and we even stopped by a ghirardelli’s ice cream & chocolate shop. so delicious.

we made our home at this awesome bar called, Zymology. all the drinks were tasty. everything was served in Erlenmeyer flasks and test tubes. the bartender was on a whole higher level than I’m used to in my bartenders. she made some amazing drinks with great ingredients. some of which did not agree with my palate, i am sad to say. but she did try to salvage my last drink with some experimentation and i ended up getting three very tasty shots out of the drink she made me. now that is some awesome service and creativity. she was also a neuroscience major and very easy on the eyes.

My host ended up getting chatty with the bartender and they ended up talking about strip clubs. not a venue i am fond of attending. i excused myself to bum a smoke off a stranger and then she came charging out on a determined mission to see some breasteses. I drove to a topless joint and it was the kind of dead night that you fear all humanity has left the planet. we got two dances and not much else. i still see no appeal to these places but it was still a good time.

i am going to miss California when i am gone. it is beginning to rival my desire to live in Oregon. still the west coast. we’ll see what my future holds.

So I flew into Vegas last night at ten forty local time and met up with my friend who moved to California. We hung out a bit at Fremont street then headed to los Angeles, where she lives. Well, actually in corona. Anyway, we get in pretty late and we both pass out. She ends up going into work at some point. I manage to nibble on some food in her fridge when I eventually wake up. Now she’s on her way back from work and we’re going to San Diego. Good times.

Just a friendly reminder: No matter how hard the Wonder Woman movie may suck, you all better get your asses into the theater, make it break fucking records, because if not, we’re going to end up with another almost decade of “But female lead super hero movies don’t make money!”

Upon cleaning out the darkest depths of my grandmother’s fridge, I discovered food that is older than me. This expired in February… 1987. This can saw Reaganomics. This can saw the Challenger explode. It saw the fall of the Soviet Union. It was around when Tupac got shot. Both times. This can is older than The Simpsons. #Bruh
