April 29th


In honor of your birthday, I decided to blog (at your request) my separated at birth observations, playoffs edition. Not to bring up a sore subject but first up... Sharks head coach Todd McLellan (left) and Smeagol/Gollum aka Andy Serkis (right). Eww I would reference LOTR, eww I would use the acroynm for the Lord of the Rings. They both don't get their precious in the end. How sad.

Has anyone else been trying to will the baby bulls over the celtics?
Brian Scalabrine (left) and Michael Rappaport (right) haha together RapScallion. More so in the body and the gingerness but also that headband screams Paulie Kirkwood.

Got past the Jazz hands. I hope Portland isn't next.

When I was little, I toiled the earth at a non-profit arts organization OR as my friend (then co-worker) Elena maintains, "we cleaned the bathrooms at MACLA. " Althooouuughh, towards the end of our term, once we had traversed up the career rungs, we delegated volunteers or coaxed friends into that type of drudgery. So that meant we only sometimes moonlighted as janitors. All that aside my time at MACLA was precious and I'll forever have a memory box up-top my closet shelf with pictures of us together and dried flowers pressed between my diary pages. The place holds a very special cramped place in my heart. For that reason, I donate to their art auction every year. Usually I just unload an old piece that I've been compulsively hoarding but this time they requested one of my pan dulce embroideries. I got to stitching on a new one, it's vinyl size.

Show is up right now and will remain open up until the day of the live auction on Saturday May 16th. You can buy the pieces BEFORE they go to auction for the retail price listed + an additional 50% of the retail price, something like that. Click on the image below for more info.

It's time for Dodger baseball! Or nearly time, 1hrs 44mins 3 seconds and counting...

My best friend and her husband are not sports aficionados. Having no loyalty to any one sports team, I feel it's my responsibility to steer little Isis in the right direction before geography (unless the A's move to SJ) or negligence (on the part of masochist Giants fans) have their way. Besides, Belén does OWN a Dodgers jacket , and there was the time that she went to a ball game up in SF and thought the Dodgers were "hotter". That pretty much equates to Belen being a non-practicing Dodgers fanatic, so it makes her offspring of the same ilk.

To be fair, we had her feel out both Dodgers and Giants colors respectively...

Aww super cute and a smart cookie. That footage wasn't even doctored. Belen & Mona didn't have to make good on threats of giving her a little pinch or hair pull. She spat on and was miserable in orange and black all on her own. The pedos, also real. Do you like the manny wig I crafted?

I made it out to the last spring training game of the season yesterday. Unlike the rest of the Dodger team that stayed back in preparation for opening day. Booo, no Manny, Russey, Raffy, Blake or O Dog. Good eats and plenty of unmerited BOLDNESS from vagiants fans thinking all bad because their regular line up edged out essentially the triple A LA squad and a wet behind the ears newly designated 5th starter, James McDonald. Lindblom was impressive, 4IP, 2 H, 3 SO, 1BB.

Bases juiced....
