It's another sunny day here in California... temp is currently 56, and we'll have a high of 77. Can't beat that. 'Specially on a Saturday. I may make a run up to the mountains, or I may just stick around the apartment, pop open all of the windows, and simmer up some bascetti sauce. Yeah... I think I'll just stick around and straighten up the place a bit. My friends from Winchester should be here sometime this week...

Just finished a filling repast of breakfast tamales. "Breakfast tamales?" Yes. Sounds special, but really, they're quite simple to prepare.
1. Buy some tamales from a coworker. (I chose to go with pork and jalepeno.)
2. Remove from fridge and devour. (I don't even bother reheating.)
Prep time is no longer than the time it takes to remove the corn husks.
Serve with orange juice... and vodka. J/K

Or am I?

Talked with a fellow blogger earlier... Yabu. I got thinking... this blogging gig has been a cool ride. I've met some very kickass folks. Some of them, quite literally. You can see them over in my sidebar, under "We've shared a Flask." And not all of the outstanding folks I've met have been bloggers... Bou's family comes immediately to mind. And Major Dad. And Ebola. And....

Anyway, I love to get together with these folks. This coming month sees a couple of gatherings, and I won't be able to make either of them. Gottdamned job!

Heheheh... I'm starting to chuckle over the word "gathering." Sounds almost sinister. "Sinister bloggers gather over bucket of punch... launch mortars and artillery." "Record size Velocifish spotted flopping around in Chattahoochee River, near Helen, GA. Arrival coincides with gathering of bloggers..."

At any rate, I won't be able to make it to any of the gatherings back east. I'm more than a little bummed about it; however, I may be able to hook up with a blogger or two, out this way. That would help to make up for it.

Hope you bastards all have a great time at your gathering of the coven...

Make sure you try a sweet tamale. My favorite is the pineapple & coconut ones.

Strange how blogging has helped this large world become smaller. As with all things both good and bad becomes apparent over time i.e. bad: child predators, Good: meeting nice folks such as yourself. We're given the opportunity to watch one take on life's challenges with gusto. Bravo for stepping out and meeting what California has to offer. It appears currently it's breakfast tamales. :-)

I was hoping to make it to Helen this year, but it isn't looking good right now. Dammit.

Gonna miss you, Bro. Especially if I'm flopping on the riverbank, and need to be flipped back in.

If it is especially the retro classic style, classic landscape.
