High-Stakes

Will a.k.a. Mr.Triathalon and I took part in a v.exciting, unusually high-stake poker showdown late last night. A box of See's chocolates (nuts and chews!) took the place of poker chips. As expected I ended up losing nearly all my "chips" to poker-pro Will. But that isn't to say I didn't manage to consume a fair share of Scotchmallows while playing... *Oink-Oink*

Where To?


Have been thumbing through old photos and reminiscing the past. Funny (funny-good or funny-bad?!) how my life has not unfolded as I'd initially planned.

On a completely random and irrelevant note, Michael Bay is filming a live-action version of "Transformers." Omigod.

Moustache


"Je ne comprends pas le Fran├žais." That's French for "I do not understand French." Thing is, I don't think I deliver the phrase very well as French folks tend to continue speaking to me in French once I utter the line. And when they do so, I sweat like a faucet. More often than not, I end up sporting a moustache (of sweat). NOT a good look for me.

#$%@!


The Jazz defeated the Warriors in overtime. Sadness.

McDreamy


Conan O'Brien tops my list. George Clooney comes in a close second. Why so? Check THIS out :)

P.S. Yes, I realize that the provided doodle is irrelevant to the subject at hand... but she happened to be lying around...

M-I-C-K-E-Y

Am reading "Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination" by Neal Gabler. Am on page 85 and so far so good! I splurged and bought the hardback version. Thick and heavy. This book is giving me a total mind and body work-out.

Speaking of Mickey, have any of you guys seen this? A bit disturbing?!

A Worthwhile Indulgence

Today's Wall Street Journal reports that a smashing lot of pricey paintings are headed for Sotheby's auction block tonight. According to the Journal, "expected bidders at the sales are the usual suspects" (casino owners, software developers, real estate developers, hedge fund folks, oligarchs, bankers, and so forth). Up for grabs is Mark Rothko's "White Center (Yellow, Pink and Lavender on Rose)" (1950). What a lovely way to blow $40 million :) It's the Neopolitan color-scheme, I tell you. Worth every penny.

Juggling

Too many people to please. Too many bills to pay. Too many choices to make. As if life weren't complicated enough as is, Beans went ahead and chewed up my income tax refund check! AAAAAAAAACK!

Craving


A large, juicy burger with a tall, frosty soda. Am up late working on a take-home Managerial Accounting final. Woopee.

Heartbreak


Warriors were defeated by the Jazz this evening. Grr-Grr *FLARE*!

Neighbor

Illustration Friday entry. Topic: Neighbor
In my last relationship, I insisted that the manfriend and I would always, at very least, live in the same state as my best friend, Pammy. After all, who wouldn't want to be neighbors with her bff? I like to think we're inseparable. Kinda' like milk and cookies.

Feelin' Hot-Hot-Hot


Temperature's rising, and we can't take it. Beans at Ocean Beach.

A Bit Beast?


My good friend Will, finished off a triathalon today. Whew-wee! This calls for a celebration. Or simply a couple of Beard Papa cream puffs.

What's Not to Love

I "heart" Spidey.

Woah Nellie!

Golden State became the first No. 8 seed to capture a best-of-seven playoff series over the NBA-best Dallas Mavericks in Game 6 tonight. Yahoooooo!

Going Green

HYSTA (Hua Yuan Science & Technology Association)'s Annual Conference took place yesterday. This year's theme: "China, Globalization, and the Shifting Gobal Power Equation." Hehe. A real mouthful. The program highlighted the issue of global warming. That said, Mr. Environment himself, Al Gore was present. Other planet and technology loving' "celebs" present - Jerry Yang (Yahoo!) and John Doerr (Kleiner Perkins). Ooh. Ahh.

Arrived at the Santa Clara Convention Center early in order to catch a free showing of "An Inconvenient Truth." So disturbing! I am soooo going green. Am going to need a game plan though...

Like a Goldfish


Beans has no sense of portion control. Provided all-you-can-eat access to kibble, he'd go belly-up in no time.

Turn That Frown Upside Down


NO.

Today was a shiteous day.
1) The Warriors did not win.
2) The Friday showing of Spidey 3 I'd hoped to get tickets for is sold out.
3) I think I've got a cavity. Karma's biting me back in the butt. Not only did I not share my Sour Patch Kids with Beans yesterday, I taunted him with them. I made him drool and then wolfed down an entire bag in front of him.

Boo.

Fingers Crossed


Am watching the Warriors battle the Mavs in Dallas. Fourth quarter. 103 to 102. OMG.
