vacation recap

we were in S.F. last week and had a good time. some of the highlights included:

1. at my husband's family reunion when his 87 year old grandmother said she wanted to "slap everyone in the family in the face."

2. going to the pez museum in burlingame, ca and exposing the owner of the museum as a liar in front of everyone. he said that ebay started as a way for the founder's girlfriend to trade pez which has been proven to be false (see below).

"The frequently repeated story that eBay was founded to help Omidyar's fiancée trade Pez Candy dispensers was fabricated by a public relations manager in 1997 to interest the media. This was revealed in Adam Cohen's 2002 book, The Perfect Store,and confirmed by eBay."

we felt bad until i bought $50 worth of pez at the end of the tour.

3. hearing that our friend sometimes babysits a kid who will only order "footlong cheese sandwiches" from subway. WTF?

4. when we were discussing billy mays and my husband's father said "the only person more annoying was that crocodile hunter who died." WTH like who has a problem with steve irwin?

5. eating in-n-out twice in one week. sweet!

6. finally getting my aviators at nordstrom!

7. scoring an alcatraz psycho ward "outpatient" t-shirt for $4 which may have been a rip.

8. the best was coming home to find plants growing on our roof. time to clean the fucking rain gutters, anyone?

the end!

  1. Sounds like someone had a ton of fun. I've been dying to clog my arteries with some in-and-out, maybe next year! Glad you liked the stuff. I have no idea what size index cards go in the box, I am thinking I will just get some index cards from walmart and smoosh them inside.
