Whoa, whoa, WHOA. HOLD ON.

I was just getting ready to shut this bad boy down and go meems, but then I thought, "hmmm, I haven't checked cuteoverload.com in a long time, and I'm not super tired, I think I'll waste a few more minutes on the glorious internet." Little did I know that there's an angel somewhere in this crazy mixed up world of ours who took the most amazing picture, just for me:

Monkeys! In a wheelbarrow!! Thank you.

Moon Chaser

October in San Diego means every time you get out of your car, you'll forget that it's bone dry outside, and as soon as you touch any teensy piece of metal on said car, you're going to get shocked like there's no tomorrow. It hurts, and it gets old real fast. However, there are some good things too. For you PB-expats, here was the view looking east down Chalcedony as I got home tonight:


It smells faintly of smoke, and the moon is gigantic! It's almost Halloween!
On a totally unrelated note, here is my latest Shindy episode. Supposedly a new one, wherein I get a manicure at a boutique in Little Italy, should be posted any day now. But they've been saying that for going on 3 weeks, so who knows. In the meantime, enjoy The Fleetwood, and know that the guy who looks like Sean Astin was as douchey as he seems.

This One's For Kevin

Right now, I'm chowing down on a delicious Lentil Soup with Sausages concoction that I made last night. Please enjoy the recipe here, it was a fun first soup to make since the weather has cooled a bit. (My adjustments: I used half chicken stock and half water. Also, don't skimp on the salt and pepper. 1 1/2 tsps. of salt is just silly, in my opinion.)

Fall has arrived in San Diego, with really crisp, dry days on Saturday and Sunday. It made for beautiful beach weather, no marine layer, no smog, and you could see all the way to the Coronado Islands. I think that's what they're called. I walked twelve and a half miles on Saturday--oof. I was supposed to do 17, but got off to a late start, and since I was hosting part of Ali's Bachelorette Party at The Madrid that night, I had to cut it short. I cut it even shorter because my feet were killing me. Gotta get some inserts or something for my fancy new shoes.

I think the heat will be back soon, the Santa Ana's are about to descend on us, and over the past few days my lips have just shriveled up from the dryness. S is remarkably un-busy at work, which is a bummer for him as he is bored out of his gourd, but the potential for him to become scarily busy in the next few weeks is building. Plus, he is not at camp, so even when he's bored, he's in a healthier environment.

And now, for your enjoyment, a Frog and a Bear, seeing America (try not to smile):
