Made it to Minneapolis

I made it to my hotel a few minutes ago and wanted to upload the pictures I took today.  They aren’t anything spectacular but I like to take pictures so bare with me.  I actually ended up getting on the flight I was scheduled to be on in Salt Lake City but my bag didn’t.  The flight doesn’t get in for another 3 hours so I’m doubting I’ll see it tonight but hopefully it will get here in the morning.  Off to go find some food and explore the city…

Went to Santana Row for lunch at a really yummy Mexican restaurant.  Then we went to Pinkberry for dessert and I had a small original with fruity pebbles and chocolate chips which was amazing.  Then we went to the Tech Museum of Innovation where we saw an IMAX movie about flight which was amazing.  Had coffee at a really cool cafe in downtown San Jose.

Lizard Under My Pillow

So I woke up early this morning and was working on my computer.  I like to sit in front of a space heater and blog (doesn’t get much better than that).  I had a pillow on the floor with me when I started feeling something moving under the pillow.  I ignored it after 2-3 times of feeling it until I lifted up the pillow to discover a lizard was under it which scared me good as I was not exactly expecting to see that by any means.  Here is the video of my encounter and please note that no lizards were harmed during the making of this video so it is PETA friendly.  OK I couldn’t help saying damn, I guess I was still stunned I was laying on top of a lizard…

Flora Restaurant in Oakland

Went to Flora tonight in Oakland for dinner with some friends.  If you go you have to get the caramel pudding, I know you are probably thinking the same thing I did…pudding for dessert?  I read the reviews of the restaurant on Yelp before going and everyone was raving about the pudding so I figured I’d give it a try.  It had sea salt and whipped cream on the top which made it incredible.  I completely agreed it is really good and is one of the best desserts I have had in a really long time.  OK the dinner was good too.  To give you an idea, they have sides of macaroni and cheese so how can you beat that!  My kind of place.  :)



Psst…you wanna know a secret?  Only a few people know this but as long as I can remember my favorite time is 10:10.  For whatever reason when I notice the time I find it is 10:10.  It doesn’t matter if it is a picture of a watch in a magazine, a clock on my nightstand, or a clock anywhere in the world, if it is 10:10 I take notice.  People think I am crazy (and I am) when I tell them that.  I’m curious if it is just me or if people have a favorite time, or a time they seem to notice more than usual.
