Home sweet home, here we come. Kendra and I are super stoked on seeing the family. I’m actually writing this in Thug Passion as we are trucking along I-5. Earlier, we stopped in Fairfield to pick up some tire chains at Les Schwab. I just hope we don’t have to use them, the weather report says we don’t have to but we have to carry them. Ugh.
Last night we went to a birthday party in Nob Hill at a chill bar named, Rye. This being the first time we had been out to a bar since my arrival down here, I’m glad it was at the Rye. On the back wall, just past the single pool table, the whole wall was a chalk board decorated with sketched sea life and other peoples personal drawings and I think a few random phone numbers of people hoping to get lucky. On the wall we stood in front of for the picture with Shashi and Laura, was their wine collection. Pretty rad place is what I’m trying to get at.
I was doubling over from laughter for a good portion of the night due to Shashi and how enthusiastically adamant about where he shops. The three stores that he sees fit to grace them with his presence are Costco, Trader Joe’s, and Amazon.com. So much to the point were he apparently is the easiest person to shop for in the world. Laura said that all he wanted for his birthday was a gift card to Amazon.com and seeing his eyes light up when Amazon.com was mentioned in the conversation was all the proof I needed to believe that. I’m not really one for purchasing things online too often but after hearing how terribly passionate Shashi was about Amazon, I just might have to check it out now.
The only thing that I don’t like about going to the city for the bars is the parking. We lucked out I think only having to walk 5 blocks back to our car but I feel like it’s not always that way.
Kendra and I decided to take advantage of the fact that we were alone for one more night down here and exchanged Christmas presents. She got me a new jacket that I had my eye on at one of my new favorite stores called Dapper. This store is totally my style.... if I had tons of money to blow on clothes. It’s the jacket that I’m wearing in the pic. Super sweet.
Anyhow, call me. We’re going to be in Eugene until the 28th.
