Can't Suspend Disbelief...
Two Different Views of the Same Reality
These two pictures are both taken at the same time on the same day. Just by looking at them with different light and coloring, I feel two completely different sensations. The first (color) picture reminds me of a warm but windy day at the beach where anything is possible. The second scene (while equally, if not more beautiful) makes me feel chilled - like I'd rather be wrapped up in a warm blanket while viewing it from the inside of a window.
No hidden message here. Just too tired to write about the fabulous drive up, the drama (good and bad) that was BlogHer, the mother f'in hives (which have returned), and Stampy's Not-so-Excellent Adventure (aka "the drive home"). That being said, I'm going to drag my ass upstairs to my stuffy and unairconditioned bedroom and place myself in the hands of modern medicines. Good night, all!

Happy Birthday To Me...
Today (in the midst of a week of Saturday/Monday/Wednesday call), I had a wonderful birthday brunch with Ruby, Five, Mr. Lavender, Smelly Elly (who at her parents' request shall henceforth be referred to as Elly Belly), Waltzing Matilda, my dad, and Uncle Data Man. While a little sleepy post-call, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. But all I could think of was the tagline from a birthday card I'd bought for Ruby (which I will now have to replace)...
REMEMBER THE GOOD OLD DAYS...WHEN WE WEREN'T OLD, AND WE WEREN'T GOOD?
I still don't feel so good. But boy, I do feel old.

Sonoma on Many, Many Dollars a Day
Night at the Pelican Inn = pretty expensive
Night at the Hotel Duchamp = really fucking expensive
Lincoln Towncar and Driver = less than the cost of a DUI
2+ cases of wine I bought = uh oh, how am I getting this home
One last girls weekend with Ruby* = Priceless
*Including martinis at the airport, some poor stranger hearing a story about a high colonic, hiking Muir Woods and Mt Tamalpais, Wine Tasting in Sonoma, playing Bocce Ball with a bottle of Sangiovese, meeting Ronald McDonald, skinny dipping in a hotel pool, mud baths, and more.
*Photos and more details to follow.
