Body Boarding

My first trip to San Diego was in 1997 for Comic-con. While we were in San Diego we went into the ocean and swam around. I did this every time I visited San Diego but since moving here I havn’t been in the ocean past my knees. Until the other day.

One of my co-workers is a regular body border and I convinced him to take me out which he did last Wednesday. We headed down to Pacific Beach from work which is only a few blocks away. The guys got me some fins, a wetsuit, and a bodyboard. It was a lot of fun and while out there I managed to catch four waves and get lots of salt water caught up in my head. I look forward to doing it again.

Theater and Gamex

For the past two months it seems like I have been busy with weddings, European vacations and other things. Well, it has all slowed down and it looks like I have a long term of normality which I don’t mind.

The last big thing I did was go to a small gaming convention in LA called Gamex which was a lot more fun than I thought it would be. They had a good selection of games and I got to play a “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” rpg set in Rome and then a game called “Hollow World” which was basic pulp where you drill to the center of the Earth and discover it is another world filled with dinosaurs, lizard people that speak latin, and barbarian princesses that can’t speak english unless they put on a special crown.

About a month ago we went and saw “Desire Under the Elms” which is a classic play by Eugene O’Neil. Stephanie decided she wanted to do something special and supported an actor. She put both our names down so we appeared on the program and got a bunch of free tickets so we took our friends. We were suppose to meet our actor after the play but after waiting about 10 minutes we gave up and left.

Last weekend we went and say “Bunbury”, a play about a character (or concept) from Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Ernest” which manages to escape his play and with the character Rosaline (from “Romeo and Juliet” another character that is never seen) they reek havoc on the literary world. Play was funny at moments but had a horrible ending that made no sense.
