Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week...7-19-10

For The Week Of 7-19-10

5. Watching two old white people argue in line at safeway - one of which was the store manager who yelled, I'M SICK OF THIS GOD DAMN JOB !!!...it was awesome.

4. Having lunch and catching up with Ricky.

3. The series finale of "Boy Meets World" - The repeats may come on early but it was worth it to see the ending of one of my favorite shows. A fun, funny, then sad ending that saw everyone moving on to the next phase in their lives. I only wish they'd put all the seasons out on dvd again.

2. Watching the Giants beat LA 7-4 in one of the most exciting tv games I've seen in some time- My team is on a hot streak and Mel, Ashley and I sat hear last tuesday and watched a game that kept us on the edge of our seats.

1. Watching Giants games, both in person and on tv, with My Melly- I'm so happy to be with a fellow Giants fan (and NOT a dodgers fan...that might be a dealbreaker.Haha. Dont think I could do it. Haha.)...we have a good time watching on tv and, when we are at the ballpark, cheering for the home team...while snacking on some garlic fries!! She's awesome and this is simply another reason why!!

So, that's it.

Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week...7/12/10

For The Week Of 7-12-10

5. Archie comics signing at Flying Colors Comics - Read on Facebook that this week Dan Parent, artist and writer of Archie comics, was going to be signing stuff at Flying Colors. Mel (who loves her some Archie's...Veronica being her fav), Ashley and I went there...and were one of the first people to get our stuff signed. A fun afternoon.

4. Kiersten's 21st BD at Spoontonic -A fun night where the dj played some 90's rap and some random strange middle aged gentleman freestyled for me over Biggie's "Juicy" beat ( " Thanks for listening man, I just needed to get that out") which was kinda weird...

3. My Melly spoils me with Comics (at Flying Colors) and food and drinks at the Giants game-Results !!!

2. A day at the ballpark with my love !! - Watching a great Giants game as the home team came from behind win 8-5. We had such a great time.

1. Making picadillo for my Melly- It was my first time making this tasty dish...my mom helped me and I think I did a good job. Leftovers were great too.

So...that's it.

Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week...7-5-10

For The Week Of 7-5-10

5. Thanks to my Mom, getting hella food from costco- Thanks Mom.

4. Making a mixtape that I know (hope) the Melanie will enjoy.

3. Amazing Spiderman presents "American Son" - This story, about the (messed up) relationship between Norman and Harry Osborn was a really fun read. Action packed and funny, this was one of the better recent things I checked out from the library.

2. The Foo Fighters cover "Band On The Run" - A great, fun cover that you could tell the band had a great time making. I've been playing this all week and its been good listening.

1. Saturday morning - Mel and I got to spend a nice quiet Saturday morning together before we both had to go to work. We ate breakfast and talked...it was a great morning with my love.

So...that's it.

Tom's Top 5 Awesome Things This Week...6-28-10

For The Week Of 6-28-10

5. "Space Jam" - I had not seen this movie in years and on Friday, Mel and I watched it while having drinks ( a combination of the kid and adults sides of us, I guess ) at home. The movie was shorter than I remembered but still really fun to watch. And the R.Kelly song " I believe I can fly" at the end...I was surprised that I knew most of the words still.

4. Having a bunch of songs downloaded for me by the always awesome Melanie !!

3. Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat dvd - From the time I was 6 years old, my all time favorite wrestler has been Ricky Steamboat. And for the first time ever he's gotten his own dvd. There were some old matches on there but the best part was the career retrospective talking to him, people he wrestled and today's wrestlers who, like myself, rooted for the Dragon. A fun dvd that I really enjoyed watching.

2. An awesome dinner made by my favorite person - On Saturday Mel cooked an awesome-tastic dinner. It was spaghetti and meat sauce and it was fucking fantastic...I ate till I couldn't move. Fantastic. And I cant wait till she makes it again !!

1. Pleasanton (Alameda) county fair - A perfect day ( weather, crowd size and ever other kinda way-wise) with some fantastic people. Melanie, Ashley, My Mom and I went to the fair on the 4th of July. We tasted some weird/ tasty fair food. The sun, while warm, was not blazing hot...it was the perfect weather to either go to a fair or see a ballgame. I had so much fun spending time with some of my favorite people. A fantastic day from start to finish.

So...that's it.

Tom's Top 5 Awsome Things This Week...6-21-10

For The Week Of 6-21-10

It was, reading back this list, a good week....on any other week, any of these could have been at the top of the Top 5....

5. Starbucks Main & Duncan Reunion at Spoontonic - Had a drink or three with some of the old main and duncan crew. Some of us are still with the bux, some not....but it was fun to get together with some people I hadn't seen in awhile and talk old times.

4. Having a great weekend - Melly and I went to the Giants Red Sox game on sat. and even though the wrong team won (Sox 4-2 ), it was a great day for baseball. The next day,I went to the swap meet and got some great bootlegs....we watched "Shrek Ever After" which is stupid title yet ended up being a movie I enjoyed waaaay more than I thought I would ( I didn't think I would enjoy it at all...I was wrong). Went to see Toy Story 3 with Ashley and Mel and later we had some tasty hot dogs and hamburgers. It's rare that I get a whole weekend off...and I think I made the most of it. Fun times.

3. Waking up early and watching episodes of "Boy Meets World".

2. Eating some tasty ribs and having more than a few laughs with my family at $1 rib night at smokin' oakies.

1. Making dinner, sitting down and getting to hear all about Melanie's first day at work.
