posting this now since who knows when i'll be able to get back online with this crazy busy new job. . . .

this friday, tacos and margaritas here for mah birthday. 6 to 6:30 margaritas are $1. they have foods and full bar all night. we'll get there around 5:30-5:45 to grab a table and will be there for a few hours. feel free to show up whenever, but shoot me or wolf a text so we know to keep an eye out for ya. i'll try to post a reminder later if i can.

two things

1) tonight we're going to tacos and margaritas at for wolf's birthday. we'll get there around 5:30. $1 margaritas go from 6 to 6:30. we'll probably stay until 7:30 or 8 or maybe later depending on how the night goes. text (or comment here) if you're going to come and around about what time you think you'll get there.

2) a coworker needs to find a new home for his adorable dog. conan is an 11 month old german shepherd pit bull mix. he is lovable, friendly, loves walks, absolutely loves people, and knows commands in portuguese like sit and stay. let me know if you or anyone you know wants to possibly give him a new home.

wolf and i are going to see the 8:30pm showing of star trek at the century daly city this thursday. century daly city is a very short walk from the daly city bart station. we're not going to buy tickets in advance because i doubt it will sell out. we'll probably get down there around 6:30 or 7, buy our tickets, and hit up fuddruckers if there isn't a line for the movie. anyone who wants to join is welcome.

the sole of my super comfy cheap black and purple sneakers split this weekend. so i'm in need of new shoes (sure i have other shoes, but all hurt my feet). the problem is i have 8.5 size wide width feet and need supportive soles so cheap payless shoes and flat soled shoes like converse and slip on flats don't work for me (when i wear them i'm limping after walking a block or two, even with expensive insoles). i would actually like to buy cute shoes for a change. any suggestions of where to look? i'm sick of having my only options be sneakers, granny shoes, or boots.

limited edition star trek sporks


hr 669 - a bill that would make owning guinea pigs illegal nationwide. sounds like a bad joke. i understand the need to make certain reptiles illegal with the problems that happen when they get out and start a population in the wild in places like florida. but all non native species? regardless of how they would impact the ecosystem if they escape/released? ridiculous!
