experience since we slept through the one about a year ago. At first I
heard noises on the opposite end of the house and it wasn't long
before the whole house was shaking - the dishes in the cabinets making
noise and the light of the dining room table swaying back and forth.
The worst part was the brief but severe motion sickness that followed
the 10 seconds of the earth shaking below us.

walking around talking to themselves.... You know, the person you
think is crazy until they turn around and you notice the Bluetooth
headset. I figure if you're gonna do it, do it right, so I went with
the Jawbone (2nd generation). A small sensor rests on your jaw bone
and translates vibrations to eliminate ambient background noise. Plus
I got a $50 discount thanks to a friendly salesperson. Makes you
wonder what the mark-up is in the first place.

at the coast in Ventura then taking a gradual 14 mile climb to Ojai,
breaking for lunch in the Ventura County town notorious for it's
summer heat, then riding back down to the breezy 70 degree coast in
Ventura to cool off. Today, against my better judgement, we went with
the baseball caps instead of helmets... a bad decision because it made
me realize what a nuisance helmets are.

a day shift today as she tends to his medical needs. Looking out the
break room window at So Cal's sunshine is something I'll be getting
used to since her last day with the company is early next month. It's
been a long time since I've done the M-F 8-5 grind but I won't miss
working Friday and Saturday nights all the time.

buds anytime you see this much smoke pouring from a grill. We've had
some bad luck with restaurants lately so we decided to pick up some
steaks and grill them at home Monday evening. Yummy!

go through often, but it was worth it. When I got home I was unable to
activate the phone, I presume because the servers were too busy due to
all the other iPhone buyers doing the same thing. By 1pm, while at
work, I was able to get signed in to activate the phone. Sitting at my
desk all day, NOT playing with my shiny new toy, was torture.

a picture, he was there. When I wanted to blog, he was there. When I
wanted to check my email, he was there. The list could go on forever
but the point I'm getting to is that this is my last day with my
iPhone, to be replaced tomorrow by the iPhone 3G. Doors open at 8am at
the Apple store!

monster cups (see the size of that thing?) of coffee. After I've gone
through the paper and looked at all the pictures, she goes through and
actually reads the thing while I go through my RSS news feeds on my
iPhone and browse the headlines that aren't 13 hours old.

there but it was a great game to watch with Bruce and Julie from work.
They made the game all the more fun, being the huge fans that they
are. Oh, Dodger Dogs are awesome - well worth the $5.75!
chainsaw that has a 6' extention... Since I was standing on the
sidewalk I looked both ways before finishing the cut to make sure no
pedestrians were coming by and forgot to watch out for my own well
being. Boom! Right on the noggin. After cleaning up I realized it was
a little tiny puncture wound, trickling a little blood.

frame and parts but the spare time always seems to vanish. The plan is
to start biking home from work every day, leaving the car for donna
(who rides her bike TO work every day). Hopefully the project will be
done by the end of the weekend.
