Xmas Miraxles

When booking flights, it always seems like the best idea to leave early and come back late, so as to maximize the amount of vacation time. In practice, though, it's probably the worst idea ever. Working all night before having to catch a 6am flight is brutal. Especially now that I'm old. The wrinkles on my forehead? Not even a month old.

Luckily, the hotel we checked into when I got to town was underwater. Granted, the dolphins were really small, but it's great for the complexion to sleep completely submerged.

Murals are really big in San Francisco. You can't see, but at the far left there is a depiction of Jerry Garcia walking into the ether. This place is on Haight Street. Self-consciousness apparently hasn't made its way over there yet.

I was going to concoct an entire narrative for the trip, including fake events and people, but I have to be at work in an hour so that idea will have to wait. In its place are real events and people like Ana and her little brother at the corner store that sells pre-packaged cocktail-making kits for those who need a little help:

Then there's her nephew, who likes to spin around and act like a Power Ranger. Here he is utilizing his patented stay-awake method:

Ana and I had a very special vacation staring contest, which I won.

Then she posed for possibly the best portrait ever taken:

Next are two montages. First, Ana with brother and sister doing some dancing and posing:

Next is Clarissa with Ana at dinner (for those in the Bay area the restaurant is Weird Fish on Mission. Delicious). They move alot when they talk.

I bought an animatronic frog for the nephew's Christmas present. The box included some amazing slogans:

Ana learned to shapeshift:

Then we ate steak:

There was this cat that hangs out at the corner store and looked at me funny, so I gave it the what-for:

So all in all it was a pretty good holiday, obvs.


Teeners is back!

Also, what is wrong with celebrities and why can't they laugh like regular people? Is stuff really that funny to them?

I just need to tell you that I really resent you having a friend named Clarissa.

That is all.

dude you have no idea how hard it is for me to pronounce the name "clarissa." it's a challenge each and every time. luckily, the two of you have very similar spirits, whatever that means.
