19, 2005: LOL,
well, I'm pretty pissed off right now! I did a huge journal update for
the past three weeks and when I went to upload it to my web site I accidentally
downloaded the old one to my PC and overwrote the new one!!! FUCK!!!
:) So, now we're gonna do the really short update (hehehe, over the
next day or so, I'll re-type everything):
Years: Spent it with Ashish, Jill and a group of their friends over
at their place. Nice time, very laid back.
7th-15, Eric Larson, his wife Crissy and his dad Rolly came out to
CA for a visit.
Saturday we went to Napa Valley for wine tasting and did Opus One,
Sullivan, Sawyer, St. Supery, and Provenance. That night, it was back
to my place for dinner (did some grillin' on the BBQ :)
we went up to Healdsburg and hit Unti, Preston, Raymond Burr, Mill
Creek, and Seghasio wineries.
a cruise down the coast starting in Half Moon Bay, then down to Santa
Cruz with a pit stop at Bonny Doon winery (where Crissy and Eric left
as wine club members). After that, it was off to Capitola where we
had lunch and a nice stroll though town. After that, we took scenic
route back home by going up old route 9 through the redwood groves
all the way up to Palo Alto. Hahah, the weather, which turned bad
as soon as we started to get deep into the forest, made for an interesting
drive back. Heheh, zero visibility due to rain and fog up a long,
steep, windy mountain road goes from fun to 'this sucks' pretty quick.
LOL, I was driving and I was even feeling a little car sick :)
I flew to Denver, CO for work. I traded in the rain in CA for snow
in Denver. Actually, it was kinda nice :) Eric and crew visited
San Francisco on Tuesday. Wed & Thursday they were in Yosemite
National Park and they had an awesome visit there.
Eric and Roland went golfing at The Presidio in San Francisco while
Crissy and I toured more of the city. That afternoon, we ended up
at Rosenblum Cellars in Alameda for an excellent wine tasting. That
night, a fantastic sushi dinner a Yumi's in Alameda.
The crew takes off and has a safe trip back to Rhode Island. I take
it easy and chill :)
Justin and I spend the day together. After breakfast, we spend a few
hours doing errands, shopping and hanging out. It was a nice relaxing
day together :)
so that bring us to this week :-) No major plans for most of the
week. During the day, will work. Evenings, hanging out with friends.
Friday things get more fun though. I'm heading down to LA to visit
Adam and Meredith. I'm really looking forward to seeing the two of them
as it's been a while since our last visit. I'll hang out with them until
Sunday around noon and then head back home.
Friday, I take off for Florida for 10 days and I can't wait! Friday-Tuesday
night I'll be hanging out with Becky and Lisa in Cocoa Beach and Wednesday
- Sunday I'll be with Kevin Barnes over in Fort Meyers (and for a few
days, we'll be down in Key West!). Hehehe, it's going to be a FUN trip
and I can't wait to see everyone!
a more detailed update to follow in a day or two. Just wanted to get
something up here. I still can't believe I messed up that huge update
I typed up! Oh well :)
so begins another year. I hope that for all of my family and friends
that 2005 is a wonderful, joy filled and prosperous year!
what better way to start it off than with a hella cute picture of my
brother and Tyler :-)
of course, January 1 always is time to wish my sister Gini a very
with her earlier tonight and then about 3:00 AM ET and she was still
up partying the night away (just like she should be doing :-)
GO GINI :-)
ok, 1:00 AM. Off to bed :-)
