Yeah, so, if you are here then you probably noticed that the blog has a new look.
WordPress decided to change my old theme without a heads up. They changed it in a way that I hated, hence the new look. It’s not perfect. There is still some tweaking to be done here and there. Since I’m a cheap bastard who refused to pay for a cool theme, I have to use one of the free ones and customize it the best I can. I’m not a web developer, so you’ll have to forgive me. The header will probably change a few times, but I think this one is kinda funny and a perfectly fine placeholder.
So, yeah, mighty, mighty good man David is traveling this week for work, which means it’s just me and the Spawn. He’s still a little daddy’s boy, so I’m sure he will ask for David every day until he gets home.
While David is away here are things that will definitely happen:
- The big bottle of beer we split? I will end up drinking the entire thing myself. For example, I’m drinking a bottle of the Marin Brewing Company Barley Wine, and it is delicious.
- Since I don’t want to watch any of the shows David and I watch together (“Mad Men,” “The Simpsons,” “Bob’s Burgers, etc.) without David, I will plow through season two of “Homeland,” because – oh yeah – I have the fanciest cable package in the all the land now, and it includes Showtime.
- I will start checking my matches for free on Match.com. (I kid!)
So what did I do for Mother’s Day? Inquiring minds want to know, right?
David and The Boy gave me my gift earlier in the week. It was a Crazy Crab bobble head, which I fuckin’ love! On Saturday, I hopped on BART and got a pedicure with my mom and sister in Concord. We grabbed some lunch and did a little shopping. It was a belated birthday gift for my Mom, but it felt more like a Mother’s Day thing.
On Mother’s Day proper, I got to sleep in until 9 a.m. I know, right? It’s OK to be jealous. I watch the Giants beat the Braves, and then we walked down the little downtown in Glen Park and got a burrito at La Corneta. This is an important thing you should know about me: I fuckin’ love burritos. I think they are the world’s most perfect food.
The three of us have not gone out to eat in a restaurant for a little while. Calvin is not cool sitting in a restaurant these days. He wants to wander around and refuses to sit in the booster seat. However, today we discovered the trick to getting him to hang out: Tortilla chips!
Sitting in that taqueria, eating burritos with my boys … I couldn’t have been happier. It was a really great day.
