Wasps and car accidents (Sept '06)

No, not W.A.S.P.s... but wasps. The ones that everyone is scared of (ok - I guess some people could be scared of W.A.S.P.s too... but I digress). I'm not too happy with them this morning. Specifically the bright orange one that jumped right out and got me this morning! I went after my attacker and killed him... which made me feel better.

But it's been well over two hours now... and this thing is starting to itch!

I'm not at all happy this morning... not to mention my usual 20 minute commute turned into a 1 hour and 20 minute commute due to an accident on the freeway.

So for those of you afraid that I got in a car accident after the wasp attacked... glad you stopped in for a read this morning...

OK - on to bigger and better...

This time - the rumors may ring true!

I just read an article in the San Diego Union Tribune that sets the record straight! Eric Clapton HAS been seen out and about in Escondido several times in the past 12 months! We heard through a waiter at IHOP that he stopped in one night for dinner - yeah right! We even asked each other - "What's in Escondido that Eric Clapton would like to see?!"

Then my chiropractor shared a rumor he had heard - that Eric Clapton sent a thank you note to one of the schwanky restaurants on Grand Ave thanking them for the wonderful service and a chance to blend in to the crowd! And again, I thought to myself "Whatever, Eric Clapton wouldn't take the time to write a thank you note!"

But this article proves me wrong.... at least the part about him being in Escondido. Whether or not he wrote a thank you note - I may never know.

Link to article:

Mr. Clapton - if you ever read this, THANK YOU! Just knowing you visited our city, and then named an album after it... wow! You must think highly of the city I've called home for over 2 decades now! Hope you feel comfortable enough to return someday! Please know... you're always welcome to blend in...

Racist 'Survivor"? (Sept '06)

What's the big deal?! They've pitted all sorts of "tribes" against each other from the beginning. So as they head into this season they have to find something new and fresh! What?! They are going to pit race against race?!

Big deal... from where I sit, it looks like they're stating the obvious.

Most people stereotype without even realizing it. So, I sarcastically ask, CBS decides to state the obvious while creating some more drama to appeal to an even broader crowd and we're SURPRISED by this?!

Think about it though... as some of these "tribe" members are eliminated they'll have to make new alliances. Then they will pair up a mexican with an asian, or black with white... and think of all the extra drama that will create being that they used to be enemies?! It's ripe for the Fall lineup... and for the Fall drama... why are we surprised?!

Baby Brooklyne (Sept '06)

Another baby has entered our world! My cousin Sarah Marshek-Aldous has brought the first Marshek grandbaby into this world! And she's got those pudgy Marshek cheeks! Yet, Brooklyne looks just like her Dad Jason! What a joy it was to wait out the labor w/ the rest of the Paul Marshek family ... seriously, whenever we're together there's bound to be laughter. Even in the hospital!

Brooklyne arrived after over 24 hours of labor - and on Labor Day weekend! And even better, Brooklyne and Paul now share the same birthday weekend!

Brooklyne set some records too... She is Paul and Cheryl's first grandbaby! And Grampa Marshek's first great grandbaby! And the only baby known to mankind to have such a plethora of loving and laughing aunts, uncles, great aunts/uncles, second cousins, and grandparents!

Therefore, I'd like to introduce for the very first time...

Brooklyne Lynn Aldous
Born 9-1-06 at 10:30 pm
Weighing in at 6 lbs, 6 oz
Stretching to 19 inches long
