Summer Recap

It was the First Day of Autumn and I know I'm not alone when I say.....WHAT??!!!@#
Seriously, what the heck happened to summer? Every year, when June comes around, I get that 3rd grade feel of joy. WWWAAHOOOOO! SUMMERTIME!!!! But then I remember I don't have summer vacation. I have a 9-5 job.

With the nation's financial debacle on the horizon, taking one of those "Oh I summer'd in the Maldives" sort of vacation seemed frivolous. So I grabbed summer whenever I could. And now that Autumn is just around the corner, I can't help but reflect on all thats happened.

First Up. Skinny Dipping at the top of Horsetail Falls. Well, the skinny dipping came after my panic attack on the way up.
And you just can't talk about summer without mentioning the Olympics. Sake loved watching the ceremonies! She did I tell you! She did!

Then, what would a Northern Californian summer be without a little Overcasty Goodness at the Beach?
I also got to revisit the 80's, if only for 1 night...
Mid-August the planets lined up and the 2nd generation of Ips/Yips/Yehs reunited from east/west. Could I FIT more people in my place?
Oh hey! PIDGEON!!!

The Dog Day of Summer game at AT&T Park was definitely a highlight. Check out Sake on the Jumbotron!

I had a brush with Slo Food Nation.
D took me out for my first time surfing!(I forgot to tell D I'm not that strong in the water. But thats a story for another post. And this pic is merely a dramatic re-enactment..)

I developed a new obsession: Spring Awakening. But then again, sitting on stage watching these adorable kids sing and dance can do that to you!

Finally? The Brisbane Family Singers!! Ok. The Brisbane Fireplugs.

WOW! I had a great summer! How about you?

#1 With a Bullet

It usually takes a little time for someone to usurp the #1 stronghold on my Bitch Slap List but I have to say Sarah "Pit Bull" Palin has got talent.

Ladies and Gentlemen (and Republicans too)... here is Pit Bull Palin doing the ol' Skirt the Issue in a major way. I see she has been fully prepped in the proper hand gesturing to imply sincerity.

If you'd like to see part of what Charlie Gibson's referring to.. Hmmm... Separation of Church and State anyone??

Palin is just Wa"silly"

I do have a sense of shock and outrage. I shouldn't.  I shouldn't put anything past the Grand Old Party.
I have said in the past, if ever there was a republican I would vote for, McCain would be The One. I am even OK with the graceful and gracious Cindy. But now, he's gone and chucked my respect for his possible presidency all out the window with this bulldonkey, I mean Elephant, bit of decision-making.

I won't say anymore, because I think his own Spin Doctors  can say it better...
