new roomie!

I hung out with my new roommate Ashley tonight, and she's fantastic! Super fun, little bit cynical, tons of life experience to talk about. We have a lot in common, so I'm lookin' forward to hangin' with her in my comfy little Cali home...and out on the town. I'll post a pic as soon as I get one.

sunsets in Cali

California has the most beautiful sunsets ever! And I even saw the most amazing sunrise this morning. Let me tell you...the sun rising over the mountains, shining off the puffy clouds...I wish I were more poetic 'cause then you'd understand. Plus, there's purple all over! In MN, sunrises " sunsets were more orange. I've been told it's smog, but I'm going to ignore that and enjoy it.

I'm finally gonna go there. I've been trying to think of the most PC way to put it, and it just ain't gonna happen.
I love the diversity out here! Millions of cultures everywhere! I mean, in Minneapolis there's quite a few cultures represented. The difference I've found is that everyone mixes together out here. It's fantastic. I'm often the minority...but ya just don't think about it.

Pitter Patter!!!!

I got my car back!!! I gasped, I teared up, I yelped in joy! As a matter of fact, my heart went pitter-patter...just like it did when she got her name.

weekend visitors

My older brother Kenny came to town last week for work, and John came out for the weekend. It's really fun to show people my new life. It's an incredible area...and I love doing the touristy things...but my favorite is to show off my regular life stuff - where I live, where I work, my favorite restaurants " areas, etc. Guess it's just more personal and I feel like you have more insight to my new life that's not all Golden Gate Bridges " the ocean. But I sure do love those parts!!!
It's also hard to send people back to my MN life. I miss it.

morning news

The morning news in California consists mainly of traffic reports. It is raining again today, and I listened to a traffic report repeated for 30 minutes this morning while getting ready for work.

Sounds like I'll be coaching a 14's team for Eclipse Volleyball this year! It's a USAV club like I did with John last year...and I'm way excited! Although a bit nervous...I have my own team.

Broadway - NYC

I'm heading to NYC over Thanksgiving to visit my friend Shannon...any suggestions on Broadway shows to hit? For those who know me well, is Rent too much for me? Any other things to do? How do I get David Letterman tickets?


I can't tell you how happy it makes me when there are comments added to my blog. I miss ya'll!

men’s volleyball

I subbed on a men's vb team last night. A couple guys from work asked me to play...and all were impressed. I am the bomb-diggity. Of course, it was the lowest level of men's available, but still decent ball. And I tooled a guy. Someday I'll network enough to meet the peeps to play with.

Red Sox

I sure can't wait to see what happens!
I hate the Yankees.

The weatherman on the 10:00 news just told me we had our first "storm" today. He's now talking of the "high" winds " "heavy" much as 69/100ths of an inch hit the ground in one day...and the storm's not over, yet. Check out this article!
I love these California-folk!
