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.  :)

10:10

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.

My KitchenAid Mixer

Never, ever, ever, ever get divorced but if you are going through it like I am, I really feel for you.  The strange thing I found after separating is you go to get something (especially in the kitchen) and you can’t find it so you think “hmm maybe I misplaced it”.  Then you think “hmm maybe she took it with her” and you repeat that process a million times until you drive yourself crazy.  When my wife took her things to her new new place the thing I missed more than anything else was the KithenAid mixer (odd I know).  I made cookies the other day with one of those hand mixers and the thing was moaning at me like a dying cow.  I found a new mixer online a few days ago which just came to the house today for $100 less than everyone else had it listed for so I am pretty excited to get one again.  She did all of the cooking and baking so watch out world I have a mixer now so you have to suffer through my food experiments.

I’ll make it easy on you, here are some excuses (and solutions) for staying safe:

  • “Oh I couldn’t possibly, I am on a diet because of my New Year’s resolution”
  • “I wouldn’t want to spoil my lunch/dinner/breakfast”
  • Ask who else has eaten one and then go over to them to see if they are still alive
