Dork-o-Rama: The Random Thoughts of a Total Goofball

Embracing the Dork Side....Because Life is Too Short to Take Yourself Too Seriously

Something nicer to look at...

So, I was planning to write all about my Thanksgiving trip to SoCal today, but I'm all drowsy and foggy and still coughing... so I'll just post some pics with a few notes and tell you more about the trip one day soon, if my mind ever clears.

(insert obligatory joke about how my mind will never clear.)



Isn't this pretty? It's one of my favorite spots on the planet. It's the La Jolla Cove area. And I always make my friend Cindy take me there when I visit. It's a mandatory part of the agenda. It's a wonder they still let me visit.


Those things on the beach that look like rocks? Are seals that have now taken over this beach, which is, by the way, where I held my 18th birthday party. And an after-prom gathering. Ahh, youth. Anyway. The seals weren't there then, and now, there are plenty of locals who'd like them to be gone. Like there's not enough beach in the area...

That's my good friend Cindy in between her niece Lindzey and her daughter Sierra. Wasn't it nice of me to make them squint for the camera?

The girls. I can't believe they're 16. I can't believe they're driving. And I can't believe they got me hooked on "The OC" while I was there. O.M.G.
(Also, you're seeing these pictures because Lindzey was kind enough to look for the camera cables I'd cleverly left in the trash when I left to come home. Insert another joke about my foggy mind here.)

Cindy, her niece Bri, Bri's hubby Dorsey, Sierra and Lindzey squinting in front of the fountain in Balboa Park, another lovely place to spend an afternoon. I so wanted someone in the group to jump into the fountain, but they're all more mature than I am...

Just a few reasons I'm so thankful.


(and thank you, Buddha Girl, for giving me a clue how to do this!)

The last picture with Bri's hubby looks like he is a king with his harem. Too funny!

I hope you get well soon. It's gotta suck to be sick for so long.

*clapping wildly*

I am SO impressed! Well done!

I've seen pictures of those VERY DAMN SEALS before from someone who lives near La Jolla. I freaking LOVE stinky-ass seals!

I'm jealous yet so damn happy for you!

Now...slather yourself in Vick's Vapo-Rub...and sleep! Got that?

thank YOU, buddha girl! you were right. all i had to do was center them.

duh.

those seals are such fun to watch. and the big battle that's erupted over that teeny beach is also hilarious.

people, you can't fight mother nature. you just can't.

i slept about 11 hours last night (took another sick day from work). WHEN WILL I BE HEALTHY AGAIN??

thanks, jeannette. and you know you'll have to take the kids to visit the seals one day. and then you can park and watch planes take off and land!

and thank you.
