An awesome 4th of July and riding The Bull at Old Pro

With the 4th of July blessing us with an extended weekend, Stephanie and I packed in all kinds of stuff into what turned out to be an amazing few days out here in California. We hope that all of you had an amazing weekend as well – here’s a quick look at what all we got into:

Friday, July 4th:We headed to Seacliff State Beach in Aptos, CA for some 4th of July fun. Our friends who live down the street camped out there to make sure that they snagged a few tables for the 4th of July festivities. I think that they made it there at like 4am and just crashed there until the sun came up. Troopers, I know. We hung out on the beach, grilled up some tasty meat and saw an amazing sunset, which then led to the fireworks show. I love 4th of July.

Saturday, July 5th:On Saturday we headed to a friend’s cottage to hang out at the pool for the afternoon, which was amazing. A little bit of much needed relaxation and sun-soaking is just what the doctor ordered.

After that we cleaned up and headed out to a restaurant that we haven’t checked out yet here in Palo Alto called Mango Caribbean. It was delicious and there was a guy rocking out the steel drums to songs that ranged from Bob Marley’s No Woman No Cry to Kansas’ Dust in the Wind.

Finally, for our grand finale, we headed over to a popular bar called Old Pro in Palo Alto, where we enjoyed some tasty brew from a BEERZOOKA and we FINALLY had a chance to ride the famous mechanical bull. All of us gave it a ride and you can check out how we handled the mechanical beast below or over here on YouTube. So, how was your weekend? :)

Stephanie is crazy over Tila Tequila

Ok, quick update as I sit here while in front of my laptop while Stephanie intensely watches the season finale of Tila Tequila Shot of Love 2 on MTV.

She liked the Bo guy, but he got dropped like a bad habit.

Now some other chick(yes, Tila is bisexual) named Kristy was actually chosen by Tila, but she is now unsure if she wants to be with another girl.

This is nuts and reality television scares me.

Actual quotes from Stephanie during the show:

“I feel like I was just broken up with…this sucks!”
“Tila Tequila must be SO shallow if she didn’t pick Bo…what is SHE THINKING??”


:And now for Steph’s edit:

Ok guys.. this blog is screamin for some good ol’ Steph lovin.

For those of you that don’t know.. i’m somewhat of a reality show junkie. No, not the original reality shows like “Survivor” or “Big Brother” that have some sort of a meaning. I’m into the really shallow dating reality shows that have recently flooded our television, brainwashing, viewing enjoyment time each night. My latest craze as Ryan mentioned above is the lovely (shallow/cold-hearted/worthless piece of bi-whatever/reality show never findin love idiot) Tila Tequila. I didn’t have such strong feelings toward Miss Tequila until tonight in which she made the worst decision of her life.

You see, I have a bit of a running record with these fabulous dating shows. Without fail, every time I choose the winner (or loser depending on how you look at it). Ryan can attest to this. I chose the first winner of “Rock of Love”, I then went on to choose the winner of “Rock of Love 2”, Of course I chose the winner of the first season of “Tila Tequila”, and my all-time claim to fame is my choosing of the latest winner of “Flavor of Love 3”, in which Flave actually kicked the girl off that I picked and later brought her back into the game only to fall in love and choose her in the end as the winner. Amazing, I know.. you don’t have to tell me.

So, when this season of “Tila Tequila” premiered I knew right off the bat who the winner would be. It was blatantly obvious. Bo was the one for Tila, and everybody knew it.. why even continue with the show.. it was a done deal; not for stupid, shallow, pig-headed Tila though. I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed really. :) It’s all good though, because like clockwork, Tila’s heart was broken again due to the fact that the useless blondie she decided to try to love was not feeling the same emotions towards the little Tequila girl as she had hoped. In the end, they all walked away with a tear running down their cheek. I saw this one coming.

A one-win dynasty with the Janitorial Honeybees

So we have found some new friends. :)

New friends who not only throw amazing parties, but friends who also do other awesome stuff.

Awesome stuff like playing softball for teams that are named The Janitorial Honeybees.

Well, this past week our new friends had us join the team for their last game. The last game that would decide whether or not they would end the season as complete losers, or if they would finish with one final and only win of the season.

Stephanie and I joined up forces with the Honeybees for this final battle and helped them fight through 5 demanding innings that were filled with drama, action, heroics and letdowns.

After the dust cleared, the impossible had happened. The Janitorial Honeybees had came out on top for the first time all season. It wasn’t an easy win, but it was a team win and a win that will never be forgotten by me, Stephanie, the rest of the Honeybees and of course the random homeless guy who was drinking a Budweiser on the sidelines.

Yep, the Janitorial Honeybees ended the season with a solid 1-11 record and if you ask me, that’s a solid foundation for a future.

I can’t wait until next season – the dynasty begins.

Swarm honeybees! Bzzzzzzzzzzzz…
