Extreme Makeover: The Sonia Show Edition

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 (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!


Mmm, chips.

Sitting in that taqueria, eating burritos with my boys … I couldn’t have been happier. It was a really great day.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. 9am? Pedicure? 9am? This is enviable!! Good for you. I love the new blog look. I know I should look in to making my blog sleeker or more “professional,” but hell if I know how to do that. Yours looks great. I look forward to seeing the tweaks. 9am…..
