Home at last
Well hello there, we're back. The whirlwind California vaykay is over. Getting home with United was irritating but I shouldn't complain, at least we made it. I woke up at 10 this morning after arriving haggard at 2am last night. We vowed to take the direct flight next time.
I just wanted to check in. There's a million things to do now (I made a list called "upon return" and left it on my desk to remind me) but tomorrow, I'll post some pics. I did want to mention my favorite radio commercial we heard out there. It was for liposuction. Actually there were an astonishing amount of appearance related ads from all forms of media. Anyway, it was so car salesmanlike, "Lipo-Laser, do it NOW and no payments until 2009!" I kept giggling thinking, "Hack flesh from your body and no payments until 2009!" With all the diet ads, the get fit machines and programs, the pharmaceuticals and the plastic surgery publicity, it felt like the overwhelming message was, "YOU ARE NOT ALRIGHT THE WAY YOU ARE." Oh yeah and I saw people wearing flip-flops in the rain. More tomorrow.
