October 2008

Daniel and I just returned from our trip to Honolulu. We were visiting our closest friend Josh, and we got to meet his new girlfriend Stephanie. It is no secret that I was very nervous about meeting her. I was close to his previous girlfriend and didn’t know what it would be like to hang out with someone new. Just like I always do, I was worrying for nothing. She was great. Stephanie has a completely different personality than his ex, but Daniel and I like her a lot. She is fun to party with, very sweet, and very down to earth.

During our trip Daniel & I drank a lot (no surprise there), we laid out on the beach getting tan (actually, I got tan and Daniel got a little tan mixed with a lot of red.) I got to swim with a sea lion and a dolphin. Daniel would not participate stating that both the sea lion and dolphin will “Bite my nose or fingers off.” In a lot of respects, Daniel is more daring than me. For example, he loves roller coasters and Freefall rides. Whereas I sobbed like a baby when he managed to coerce me onto Splash Mountain at Disneyland. Which I will NEVER go on again. But I can ride horses, and swim with dolphins, so I win.

Daniel caught a cold the day we were leaving Hawaii. He then gave it to me. So I am sick right now. And I don’t need to remind anyone how much I loathe being ill. So I don’t feel so bad for trying to wax his chest hair with Nads. It turns out that you have to pull the cotton strips VERY quickly. I think we are even now.


I swear this is EXACTLY what Daniel said.

Dad: “Why are you losing weight Daniel? Are you still eating a big meal in the middle of the night?”

Daniel: “Yes. But most often not really.”

I must be growing up.

Overall, I would consider myself a very un-political person. I just never really cared and was completely uninterested in current affairs and government. It is not a good trait by any means. I can tell you what celebrity married who, and what their kids names are. . . but I wouldn’t be able to recognize our Vice President Cheney in a line-up. I know. PATHETIC.

But things are changing for me. With blogs, Twitter, and current.com, I have become much more aware of what is going on in our government and around me in general. I have been able to vote for 10 years now and I have only voted twice so far, none being for presidential elections. The first time was for Arnold Schwarzenegger, and I voted for him because I liked his movies. MOVIES. I know, I can’t even believe it myself. That is just how I think. I am wired differently. That is why I am a video editor and not a lawyer. The second time I voted, I can’t even remember what it was for.

I still don’t understand all politics and have much more learning to do. But I am sure of this. . .

Vote Obama ’08

Vote NO on Prop 8

Vote YES on Prop 2

I am also sure that I will not become like my ultra-conservative, referring to homosexuals as The Gays, “Don’t let a gay person touch you, because you might catch it,” Parents-in-Law. NEVER.

Another photo from our recent beach trip. Thor is displaying an attitude with an exuberant Boston Terrier puppy. Daniel was collateral damage from the scuffle that began moments later.

At Huntington Dog Beach. The look on his face says, “What the hell am I doing here? Do I look like a water-dog to you?”


Monty turned one!

On September 29th, Monty turned one year old. He is the rambunctious son of our neighbors Ben & Judy.

The Arnold Family

We celebrated with cake from Three Dog Bakery, which based on the look on Thor’s face is delicious.


Happy 1st Birthday Monty!! from stuckee on Vimeo.

Thor and Monty

Thor and Monty had a blast. Chloe just tolerated Monty because she is a one man gal and her universe revolves around Thor. I am hoping this will change, because Chloe needs a little spice in her life and a love triangle would be just the thing.

Normally I wouldn’t say this, but for that evening I consider it a blessing that they couldn’t talk. Because I am sure all we would of heard was “MORE CAKE! MORE CAKE! MORE CAKE!”

Daniel and Thor sleeping

They say living with me makes them exhausted. I say it was because they stayed up all night watching Stargate and eating cheeseburgers.


This song was featured on the promo for tomorrow’s CSI: season premiere. I was in complete shock at the end of the last season’s finale and am looking forward to the premiere.

It was quite a search to find out the name of the song, so I am posting it here so someone else can experience the same warm, gooey feeling that I get after listening to it.
