Top 3 "Cops" moments...

"Cops" as in the tv show, not the real-life people (who have nothing better than to hang out on Maya Linda Road giving out speeding tickets to people going 28 in a 25 m.p.h. - just saying...).

Anyway, when nothing else on tv satisfies, or Laura and I really need to de-compress, we put on Cops. Most of the time we can find an episode or two (or three or four if we're bored). Now, some of the people they show on it are well, stupid. I mean really...if you're driving while drunk, your ass should NOT be behind a wheel.

Then there are the real winners - and we now have our top 3:

#1 (my favorite) - the cops pull over some guy for some infraction (don't remember what). As they are searching him they find drugs in his pants pocket. He "claims" that "they ain't my drugs". Well, cop #1 says "Well, they're in your pants", so dumb guy "claims" "they ain't my pants!". Oy. Idiot.

#2 (second favorite) - middle class-looking white guy gets pulled over for driving late at night in a well, not very nice part of town. Turns out he had his license suspended for DUI (I think) and he was only able to drive to and from work - ONLY. This was like 11:00 pm, 6 hours after he left work. He claimed he was delivering paperwork to his office. Yeah, right. Cops ask him to step out of the car - and upon searching said car they find some packets of drugs shoved into the side of his seat. Guy claims - "Hey, how did that get there?" Cops also find drugs in his ashtray which he claims "aren't his". His answer though to the drugs shoved into the seat corner...he said (and no, I'm not making this up), he was driving around (you know, after delivering paperwork to his office...) and his windows were down - and then wouldn't you know it, he stated "Some black guy on a bike rode up next to my car and just threw those drugs into my car!" That is idiot #2 - altho I keep driving past the bank with my windows down, you know, in case someone wants to throw some $20's in my car...

#3 (third favorite) - cops pull up to obviously drunk guy walking along the street. He stumbles a bit and cops ask him if he's okay, because you know, he's STUMBLING around. He stated he "didn't trip, he stepped in a gopher hole" - yeah, on the asphalt roadway. Idiot # 3.

Well, it's a fun show to watch nonetheless.


Yet another item to cross off my sidebar

We went to see and play in the snow today. First time for the kids - they had such a blast! Just about an hour away we arrived at Mt. Laguna.

Click HERE to view all the fun!

Also, 3 very, VERY short clips of the fun. Sorry, tilt your head to the left, I forgot to turn the camera around - duh!


One item to cross off my sidebar...

Well, not exactly "cross off" since I just deleted it. A few weeks ago, Laura and I took Foster to see "The Daddy Machine" at Diversionary Theater here in San Diego. We made it a special "date" night with the boy. Logan and Seth stayed home with a sitter.

We took Foster out to dinner first at one of our favorite spots Crest Cafe - very fun!

We arrived at the theater, while Laura was parking the car, Foster and I picked up our tickets and he handed in his coloring page that they hung up.

The play was cute. But the very, very best part was just peeking over at Foster's face as he watched the "real live" play. It made me so happy to see him so enthralled.

All in all a very successful outing for the boy and his moms.


"I am a ROBOT"

It's been raining quite heavily here in southern CA and for the very first time in my kids' lives, it was actually wet enough to take a "Rain Walk" and go splash in the puddles. I'll post some individaul pictures later on but this is too funny, that's Logan in the front saying "I am a ROBOT" and Seth following him. And yes, big brother decided to lay down IN the puddle. That's okay, nothing a few loads of laundry and a hot shower couldn't take care of.


What did you have for dinner?

Laura (the COOK) made fresh grilled thresher shark - seasoned with sesame oil, lemon and lime juice, brown sugar, ginger and soy sauce - topped with fresh scallions and toasted sesame seeds. Also, grilled fresh zucchini, grilled fresh-sliced pineapple and citrus rice.


Wanna come over for dinner?


Without even trying, I’ve actually answered some of my “placeholder” comments/topics from 1/4/08. Hmmmmm, covered Laura’s birthday and dinner, Foster’s school break – and the bed. The BED.

Love it. It’s a bit higher than our old waterbed but OMG, the storage! It has one of those openings at the foot of the bed that goes clear thru to the head of the bed. You know, for your skis, your surfboard, a small child (did I just say that? Just kidding). Since we have no skis or surfboards (but we do have 3 small children) we’ve elected to store extra blankets, pillows, etc. there. Then each side of the bed has 3 very deep drawers. Our old bed had two drawers on each side that were about half as deep as these. Needless to say, I’m slowly filling them up, and with Seth’s help last night we filled one and a half. And good thing he didn’t question what he was “helping” me put in there ‘cause they were, ummmm, of the “feminine nature”. There is also storage in the headboard. Gotta love storage – I mean where else would be put all our crap? Yeah, this still doesn’t change the fact that I have to purge some crap but at least it’s not in my closet anymore.

So, just some after pictures – we sold the waterbed and comforters on CraigsList. Excellent. And thanks to my wonderful partner’s excellent financial expertise and savings, the bed is paid for – and I tell ya, it wasn’t cheap (read more than $1300) – crazy how much we spent for our “sleeping system” including the Tempur-Pedic mattress – which was almost as expensive as the bed. But, I would never, ever go back to an inner-spring mattress and boxspirng. I highly recommend the Tempur-Pedic mattress, and no, I’m not working for them.

So there you have it. Bed – triple love it!
