So, I went to Santa Cruz and San Francisco/El Cerrito with torrye to visit ohani and elite_stoat. Santa Cruz is very pretty and UCSC is in the middle of a forrest and very cool and I want to live there, only it is too far away from my mommy and I'd miss my friends. San Francisco is cool, and I learned to drive like a native (lane lines? don't matter so much. speed is essential, just charge ahead. pedestrians don't matter, lights don't matter, HILLS don't matter, and one-way streets are good.), but I like BART much better. I want a BART-like thingee. Or an Underground-like thingee. Would be cool. Would help me avoid the mess of traffic I faced this morning.
Ya see, I must pass the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library to go to work every morning. Yes. However. Well, let's just say that there are a SHITLOAD of people, a HUGE mass of flowers, and a MISERABLE commute for me, because the only OTHER way out is the way EVERYONE else is having to use, too, and it sucks.
Oh, and the 101 freeway was closed by an out-of-control brush fire both going up to Santa Cruz on Sunday (had to turn back and take the 5) and coming down on Tuesday (had to divert onto the 154, ugh, DOOM FREEWAY!), but we only got lost a couple of times, and torrye threw a sandwich out of the window in some small city somewhere in California and there were trees and I like driving on the 1 because it is pretty, but the 5 is boring and yeah. Much with the driving.
We went to the aquariam at Pier 39 in San Francisco and I got a stuffed manta ray and he is cute cute CUTE! His name is Raimundo. *g*
I should be asleep because I have to be at work at the crack of dawn this morning, but I have been catching up on missed computer time, and I'm still not catched up yet, but I think I will be soon, and wow, I am really overdoing it with the run-on sentences here, doncha think?
