i might have blown it with the wish list i made earlier. i didn't dig deep enough into my greedy heart when i put it together. anyway, instead of coals, may i get these?
the convertible porsche is just to square up the image. i'd like to have it, but not as much as i'd like to have the macbook pro. the power tool is a jigsaw. i'm not really sure what it's used for but i hear it's a good thing to have. and the boots, i just like to have some footwear to match my power tool.
that's all i can dig up today. if i find more, i'll be sure to write you another list. thanks again, santa.
jg went to visit his ma this past weekend and found that picture in one of her albums. it was taken by his sister in december, 1995. i met him exactly one month before that. funny how i don't remember him looking so chubby. or stoned.
fast forward eleven years.
i honestly can't stand how clean cut he looks. oh well. all good things must come to an end, i guess.
that's me with waffles the golden retriever. i spent about 15 minutes of my non-billable time this morning playing fetch with her in the parking lot. she belongs to karen, my office manager. my boss doesn't care for an office mascot so waffles is only allowed inside when he's out of office. she stays in the car otherwise.
waffles has hung around in my office before but never so close to me. all the fetching this morning must have really bonded us.
sunday i decided to have pictures of me taken in my new favorite hat. the idea was to drive around the city and get popular landmarks in the background. jg agreed to humor me. except we only had time for one landmark. the one that almost matched my dress.
neither of us had ever seen the bridge from this vista point. it was nice to see it unobstructed by fog.
obligatory eyeglass shot
jg decided to drive through the presidio to get to this vista point. on the way i reminisced about how my webmaster used to live in the presidio and how i would get lost every time i tried to visit him.
guess who called me fifteen minutes later?
speaking to the devil
that's all, folks
i doubt that there's another landmark in sf that is more recognizable than the golden gate bridge. but it won't stop me from taking more picture of myself around the city.
my office, after hours, has been doubling as santa's workshop for over a week now. i don't know why it has taken me so long. the contents have been ready since november. i've been lazy, i guess, but i want to blame it on being screwed over by ichiban kan. i got a load of junk food from them at thanksgiving. i was going to use it to pad the gift boxes until i discovered that 95% of it has expired.
ready for santa to deliver
the black box will be hand delivered by me. the rest is going to far away places. late. i still have more to pack yet, but there's no hurry seeing how i've already missed the cut off date for xmas delivery.
there are few things i enjoy more than putting a gift box together with someone in mind. it's usually because i'm fond of the person for some reason or other. the process is always fun until i look in my address book. it's depressing to realize how few friends i have. and most of them live out of state.
no time for self pity. santa's helper is here to pick up the parcels. he's in a handsome blue uniform and he's telling me that he might just deliver them all on time! whee!
i got to my office this morning and the floor was covered with leaves large and small. disturbing how most of them were still green. since all the doors were locked, we figured the mess must have come through the half inch wide slit vents around the skylights. pretty crazy.
there's a dog in there somewhere
that's the stuff collected in front of the office next door to us. it looks like the entire recycling dumpster ended up in their parking space. note how all the trees had been ripped clean of their leaves. i threw the ball into the pile up on purpose so waffles would stomp in it. pretty fun.
