I Can't Think of a Smart Ass Title, What's Wrong With Me?

Well, the fam and I went on a nice vacay this week. We got the hell out of SacO'Crapmento and went to one of the most purtiful places on Earth, Fort Bragg. No, not the military place in one of the Carolina's, Fort Bragg California. I love it...ain't it purdy?

It's located on the Mendocino Coast surrounded by all of these bad ass looking Redwood trees...(ok, not sure if these are actually Redwood trees, but for this story they are m'kay?) They are pretty and tall so that's all that matters! The best part of the whole trip was that for once shit didn't always happen to me! For reals! Honest!

I think that the people we rented our house from might have possibly been what I like to refer to as "fun suckers" as demonstrated by the sign on the fridge. I gotta say though, that bird sure knows how to roll one up dontcha think?!?

Too bad I didn't see that sign first though...;^) Note the "oops, my bad" face. (I am going to have to ask you all now to please not look at my lunch lady elbow)

We went to this really cool botanical gardens but I think it has some kind of freaky ass LOST vibes going on though because either my daughters arm grew HUGE or I accidently ate a weird mushroom and got all little and shit.

My oldest daughter's name is Ocean. Yes, you are pronouncing it right. Ocean. Like the Ocean. Ok, over it yet? Good. Anyhoo, we didn't know she was so's like the gardens knew her and had been waiting for her to come visit. She's cool. She's my "beard" for when I go to Hot Topic to buy my Twilight shit. Sometimes she plays along, most of the time she calls me out on it in front of the Hot Topic people.

One of my favoritest parts of the trip was when the hub and I paid homage to the very plant whose magical elixir aided in the creation of our children...

You guessed it...the Agave plant. Oh Agave Plant. How good you taste with a little salt n'lime.

A good time was had by all. AND Pukey McPukerson didn't yak on me this time! Definitely a step up from the last trip. Our youngest gets a tadmartin car sick and one time she puked on me while I was stuck in the middle of one of those half-circle booths at Perko's. Talk about friggen nasty! But, none of that this time, although we did have a few close calls. Now we're back home and can successfully spread out and not even look at each other if we don't want to.

Sorry it took so long between posts, not sure that y'all give a rats ass anyway, but sorry all the same. :)
Just wanna say that I swear I have more than one shirt. I just realized that I had this same shirt on when I post my phot journey from the car to my office. In my defense, it's a really comfy shirt.


  1. My son was sick on me and a piece landed in my mouth...He was sixteen...(I'm joking he's only two.) I just wanted to let you know that your blog is very cool,(for a girl anyway!)

    I was gong to make a lewd joke about the picture of your daughter next to the open sign, but I don't know how old she is, so I didn't...

  2. I think my favorite picture is the one of your daughter by the sign. That was cool.
    I do the same thing you do at Hot Topic. The cashier will be looking at me funny and I hurry and say something about one of my teens had been wanting said item and hope my face hasn't turned red. But with the low lighting in that store they wouldn't notice anyway.
    Glad you had a fun trip.

  3. You're back! I swear, I have a slow week at work and people stop blogging!
    Anywho. Love the pictures! Looks like you guys had a lot of fun, and I love your daughter's shirt (just thought I would throw that out there). I love Nightmare Before Christmas and almost all things Tim Burton.
    And we all have our favorite shirts that oddly enough seem to be the only ones we have on when we take pictures :)

  4. What, you think because you go on vaca you can take a vaca from blogging!? jk. oh, case you didn't know :)

    When I was little my bro would always get sick in the car so we kept a coffee can with a lid on it in the car for his "episodes"...ah, the "burp can". Grossness.

  5. oooo, I think I'm going to do the, um, burp can for our next road trip! Even if I'm dry heaving at the thought of it. My husband and I made a pact when we first had kids...he would do puke and I would do poop. Poop doesn't bother me for some reason and vice versa for the hub. Ha ha ha, sucker...I haven't had to change a poopy diaper for quite some time.

    Paul, for a dude, your pretty witty!! BTW, my daughter is 12 so thank you kindly for refraining from any type of lewd comment! ;)

  6. For a second there I thought you were referring to the California poppies aiding in your children's conception! Woah lady! But agave, yes, of course.

    Love the beard reference re: Hot Topic.


As my daddy used to say, "Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one and they all stink". That being said, do your worst, or best, which ever. (I prefer best though)
