I got off the plane in San Diego and was waiting by the doors that head outside for my cohorts to catch up with me. I put my hand on a 20 foot tall palm tree in a big ceramic pot and leaned against it, the tree roots started to snap and the tree started to fall, heading towards a little pogota selling cell phone charging equipment. I quickly grabbed the palm tree trunk and pulled it back to a standing position, the tree wobbled for 15 seconds and settled back into a steady verticle position before anyone could notice.
Just standing outside the airport felt like paradise, my affinity for the place increased exponentially as we passed marinas, outdoor cafes, and beach architecture. If I had a comparable job offer in San Diego, I’d be very tempted to live out there, one of the nicest places I’ve ever set foot. It was warm, clean, and a nice mix to their economy. Only drawback of the town was that I was the least cool character, it was like getting an audition to be on the cast of 90210, I stood out.
My meetings went well, being back in time 3 hours messes me up, days drag by because I wake up around 4AM Pacific Time. San Diego Dave met up with me on Saturday night and got to meet some of my work buds, then we drifted off and had some beers at a quiet Irish Pub called Fields. We drank some Harp, caught each other up, and he picked up the tab. Honestly, I wonder what in the world Dave thinks when he returns to Pennslyvania, it has to look a little drub in comparison.
Read the book, The Accidental Billionairres, The Social Network is based off of it. Excellent book, but I imagine if you’ve seen the movie, you would have no need for the book. I’m reading The Ugly American now, about US foreign policy and ammassadors. The book was written 50 or 60 years ago, but much seems the same.
Bought my kids a Whoopie Cushion, they belly laughed for a good 45 seconds after they implemented it. It was literally the funniest thing they’ve ever seen/heard, pure joy. The Whoopie Cushion ended up getting punctured as Winston and Dalia fought over it on the second night, we are now in the market for a new Whoopie Cushion, dollar store here we come!
We were advised to heat our water with an electric water heater, this way we wouldn’t have to rely on our oil heater as much. My research has a lot of conflicting data on whether it will save us any money, any input?
