I’m putting the seal on the freshly announced MC Dude (Nick McMurray) – Gretchen Marks nuptials. Going down in Hawaii next April. Great excuse to visit the Rainbow state and wear a tie.

I made it through a super weekend without accomplishing anything besides thoroughly enjoying myself. My bff Erik Axelson rolled through town to check out the sunshine and Tijuana. I talked him out of Tijuana (apologies to TJ lovers, I admit I don’t know the town well enough to speak to it), and there wasn’t much sunshine.

After two days of showing Erik a few of the bars around town we made it to Petco to catch a Padres game, only to find the cheap seats gone. Nobody felt compelled to drop $45 on the game. Erik managed to pick up a free ticket from a stranger and went in for a bit while the roommate (freshly dubbed Extreme Sausage Croissant by our visitor) and I grabbed a beer at yet another bar. Sidenote: if you like Hooters, you might want to try the Tilted Kilt.

Monday morning E.S.C. confided in me that he wasn’t sure about his sobriety when he took Mr. Axelson to the airport. We failed at getting much talked about tatoo’s, but were successful in giving each other the worst nicknames ever. Jesus Bible Money? Doesn’t even make sense, thanks E-Rock.

I finished the weekend off by finally catching Forgetting Sara Marshall (WFS seal of approval) and going to bed early. I’ve got a 9:00 basketball game tonight that will extend my recovery time out to somewhere late in the week. Hopefully I’ll do something worth mentioning in this forum soon that doesn’t involve alcohol, but I’m not holding my breath.
