Is that a skunk in your pocket?

Thank you! Such sweet words. And wow, to sleep outside! That would freak me out, too many bugs out there. Your dad sounds strict, but what an AMAZING experience! Almost worth the bugs to have wild skunk snuggles. Almost. ;)

Mr. Monster Truck

I wish there were more to tell. He left, and we called the insurance company, and they sent out an appraiser who gave an estimate, and then we went and got the car fixed and the insurance company sent a check to pay for it, all within a week. Once the insurance company takes over, you have no direct contact (or need to) with the other party. Though I wonder, still, whether I should have pushed for a citation. A friend in law enforcement said this officer most definitely should have processed the guy, and that he probably just wanted to save the paperwork. But I'm on the fence about that, because what if he thought he was doing us a favor by handling it civilly? Then again, the only one who really got a favor by not getting prosecuted was Mr. Monster Truck. I'm still pondering the whole thing. I thought about including my thoughts about this, but I didn't want to be unfair to the officer in case he was really just trying to be a good guy, which I respect. As I mentioned at the end of the story, I really hope it was enough to keep this guy from doing something so thoughtless and stupid again.

Natural flavors

I agree! For some reason, the authorities that be in this country deem violence and gore less "offensive" than the human body, especially a woman's. It's absurd.

Revolving Sushi Bar opens on Convoy

I'd say novelty and entertainment factor. Sushi is good, but it's not the best sushi I've had in San Diego. EDIT: I'll add it's among the best I've had locally for its price point.

They started a soft opening, manager told me official opening was April 10, but clearly they're already serving plenty of peeps while still training staff.

Love the hipster comment! Yes, conveyer-belt sushi is not a new thing, in the article I mention there are around 350 of just this one chain. I've been to a few in Japan, but not with the Mr. Fresh thing. But this restaurant IS new to San Diego. Just drove by a few times today, and there's a steady line out the door.

Shopping like a foodie: Heart & Trotter

Just got a few steaks there to bring home and grill the other night. Looking forward to trying more, especially the bratwurst after reading this.

Weird aunt

Thank you, Aunt Jane! Such nice words you always say. Sending virtual hugs and kisses, and we hope to see you soon. XOXO

Thumb Drive

You would win that bet: the docs in the ER said they see mandolin accidents ALL the time. I won't go near the thing. Then again, I rarely go into the kitchen anyway. ;)

White or wrong?

The whole, "carry your own chair to dinner" thing turns me off. If I'm going to pay, I want that sh*t to be set up for me. I have friends who go to these, and they love it. Wait, do you have to bring your own food too? If that's the case, what are you paying for?
