      • Robin, I'm going to be in San Diego on business the first two weeks of June. My hubby is going to come out for the weekend in between the work weeks... what is the one restaurant we should eat at? And what couple of sights must we absolutely see?

        I'm really looking forward to this! I usually go to not-at-all-exciting places on business trips!

          It's a totally cool term coined by Robert A. Heinlein, in that book he wrote way back in the 60's... Stranger in a Strange Land.
          It means to totally share thinking/consciousness/oneness with.
          Cool shit man.

            This is a Brazilian Churascurio that is awesome: Rei Do Gado

            I would say that the must see places in San DIego would take about a week but a few highlights would of course be the zoo. We have the best one in the world (recognized as such by zoos everywhere, not kidding). And the zoo has two locations. The main one near our central Balboa Park and the Safari Park in the north end of the city. Both are worth seeing. The rest of Balboa Park is also lovely. One of the prettiest spots in San Diego IMO is the Torrey Pines Glider Port. A good place to watch the sun set into the Pacific while hang gliders waft about.
            Sea World is fun for kids but is a bit touristy hype (like Disneyland) IMO.

              Please, type softly. I went out this morning in my effort to try all the wonderful restaurants in my new neighborhood and I found this place advertising "bottomless mimosas" with the weekend brunch. The steak and eggs were great but I think I had too many mimosas before the food got to the table.
              I'm sort of re-starting the day now in mid afternoon after a long nap.

              Yesterday was awesome. My G-man (I've decided that's his name because it is the first initial of his real name and he used to work for the gubment as an investigator) came over to help me hang some high up pictures and curtain rods. Then we spent most of the day in bed. Purr. I could get used to this.

                  OMG yes, seconding Rei Do Gado. I asked them what I could have, since I'm completely GF, and the guy walked me over to the salad bar(which was awesome by the way), and pointed at 2 things I couldn't eat and told me not to eat the meat that was marinaded in beer. HEAVEN.

                  The zoo is awesome as well, and Sea World is Sea World.
                  Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

                  If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

                  • My sister liked the Old Town (does it have a different name? Mission district? something else?) a great deal as well when she was there last.

                    ----

                    I hope you did get the pictures and curtains up, too! lol! of course, i have a preference for the other way of spending time other than hanging pictures and curtains as well.

                    ---

                    I'm also super excited about work. I did a whole clean up and reorganization of my computer -- moved a lot of data off onto a USB as well (ie, paperwork and such from 2011, 2012) -- and then ordered my to-do list for the business. I have three lists, and a total of 20 action items. After writing out those action items, I completed 4 this evening! If I keep working at this pace, I could have those decks cleared in three weeks!

                    After that, there are two more projects in the pipeline that are just ideas, which will need to be listed out ... if I want to go forward with them and i'm not sure that I do.

                    Anyway. . .

                      Thanks, Robin! Unfortunately, we'll only have the weekend... unless the DoD furloughs start, in which case I might also have Friday "off". That restaurant sounds great, and I'd already thought about the zoo; I'm glad you endorse my thought!

                      We were stationed in San Antonio when they opened a Sea World there (when the kids were young), so that's one place we don't need to see again.

                      Thanks again!

                        Yes, there is a difference between having sex once in awhile and actually having a sex life. I like it.

                        The waiters at Rei do Gado are pretty yummy looking too. <slaps self on face>I am really getting obsessed with sex here.

                        Yes, the curtains were a good idea so as not to make the neighbors jealous.

                        Sea World is one of those places that locals here never go unless out of town friends just "have to" see it. When it first opened it was meant to be more like a marine zoo, like the Monterey Bay Aquarium. But it has degenerated into being more of a water based theme park.

                        • Things are settling in and settling down in my life. The Wolf Cub is getting his head around the concept that, unlike living in a big house at the end of a cul de sac, this is a place where other people with their dogs do have a right to walk by out windows without getting barked at. We do not own the entire complex or the entire park behind it. He's getting it pretty well now.

                          I made a big pot of beef neck bone soup and the bones are now all over the living room floor. Just a couple of happy carnivores living here. (It kind of looks like Jeffrey Dahmer's place with all those bones.)

                          Today my big project is to eat liver and drink lots of fluids since I am going to donate blood tomorrow.

                          • Hey - congrats on ex/new bf! Beware.......... I married my ex/new bf. Short version: high school best friends turned college sweethearts - morphed into "maybe there is something better out there" on his part. (granted I was his FIRST girlfriend) - I married on the rebound. He married. 20 years pass with NO contact............ 2 divorces - and we find ourselves single and still obviously in love with each other. 18 months of a long-distance relationship. I move in June - we're married in October ........... Its now 12 years later and we're very happy! Deliriously happy! Some things are just meant to be.
                            1. Love ME no matter what noises are screaming at me, or who is trying to tear me down.
                            2. Eat to heal
                            3. Move to live
                            4. Embrace today
                            5. Live with intention
                            6. Respect my body
                            7. Cultivate joy
                            8. Find my passion
                            9. Meditate on peace in my soul

                              • Admission: My home is generally littered with bones as well. Usually the heavier marrow bones from beef shanks that I've eaten the marrow out of, and then used in stock so they are well cooked because my dogs (at least the 35lb terrier mutt and the GSD) can/will shatter anything lesser.
                                Or just from large beef shanks that I've braised and devoured, and then let them polish to white.

                                But still. BONES everywhere. LOL

                                Sometimes there is a purge and then we start over. But I always miss a few.
