my life

i’m a warriors fan and enjoying their recent success after watching years of deplorable success with players like alton lister and kevin pritchard. i have my second electric car. i recently put a deposit in for the new tesla model 3 car but was disappointed at the interior and potential for problems since it’s the first model year of that car. i grew up near my parents and my kids grew up near their great-grandparents which is fantastic because i grew up far from extended family.

pre-all saints day stories

i guess the french do it differently there? i can see how the insides of a warmed pumpkin to be a little erotic.

-> some of these new inventions really make it too easy for kids these days. they lack the creativity that we had growing up with our very primitive rubber band guns [gadgets and gear]

-> the slider bar concept in palo alto is pretty good, but their execution is lacking a little bit. i have yet to try their breakfast sliders [slider bar palo alto]

-> i keep this site bookmarked so i can be ready when i win the california lottery, stock option lottery, rich aunt dowry lottery, etc. [vanguard properties]

-> fancy magnification device shows the intricate details of common household things, such as sperm []

hide yo kids from the giants

the giants take a 2-game lead in the world series against the rangers by demoralizing the rangers pitchers enough to issue 2 walks with the bases loaded.

alyssa milano supports her giants

our good friend alyssa milano stands behind her giants in game 1 of the world series tonight.

this will probably be as good as a pitching matchup that we’ll see in our lifetimes with timmy the freak taking on cliff lee at 5pm PT tonight. when tim lincecum and his 5-11, 170lb body tried to enter the giants clubhouse at ATT park the first time, they thought he was the bat boy.

we’ll need contributions from everyone to beat the rangers. the shaky offensive performance in the NLCS will not be enough to win. buster posey, pat burrell and aubrey huff need to be more productive for sure.

one of my top 6 weekends ever

this weekend has been pretty good. first, juan uribe hits the game-winning hr to put the giants in the world series:

then, good old friend jason and i caught up with pearl jam at the bridge benefit concert:

and then washing it all down with a mcrib sandwich:

i love fridays

when did you choose to be straight?

this video was presumably done in colorado springs. they should have picked some super-conservative area in the US to shame people who discriminate against gay folks.

another dedicated giants fan

hats off to this dedicated giants fan.

marcos sort of likes the blue angels

i went with marcos and isaac to the city today to watch the blue angels performing for fleet week. i had forgotten he saw them before, but i figure he would enjoy it more now that he is older and also is starting to like the car/plane/train type of entertainment.

isaac and marcos are waiting for the show to start. marcos has some ear protection so the thunderous afterburners of the F/A-18 Super Hornet don’t blow his eardrums out. i suppose i am getting old and going deaf because the planes don’t seem as loud as they used to be when i watched them fly at moffett field back in the day.

the blue angels came and did their usual array of precision flying and acrobatics. will they move to the F-35 at some point after flying the F/A-18’s for 20 years already?

when the planes left the immediate vicinity of marina green to circle back for another flyby, marcos took the opportunity to jump in the sand and play. i guess he’s still at that age where playing with tiny, ground-up rocks is more exciting than seeing a supersonic fighter jet doing barrel rolls at 400 feet above the bay.

look at grover, now look back to me

timmy’s bionic thumb fans 14 braves

tim lincecum fanned 14 braves last night in game 1 of the NLDS. it’s impressive because i was only 90% of his skill when i was 170lbs (playing with a tennis ball)(against sub-par competition)(in milpitas).

then, i saw a picture of his hand at the high point in his release. look at his thumb!

WTF is that? it’s like some mechanical bionic triple-jointed appendage.

where would the giants be without their stars tim lincecum and buster posey this year? at home hanging out with the DODGERS!
